I have a 650 and that loads the POI's but my new 760 does not. They do not appear in the POI folder and the POI loader just closes when its done with no message? Unfortunately my 650 is away at college to test but I tried the program on two PC'c and it is the latest. Can I just copy the files to a directory? What file extension do they need to be? I have some csv & GPX's. Thanks

I only found that GPX files worked on my Nuvi 760.

No, you can't copy the files across to your Garmin as the POI Loader converts the .csv and .gpx files to .gpi format. Can only suggest that you recheck all your settings and do not use the downloader in Mapsource as it will place the files elsewhere on your Garmin. Mine ended up in favourites. I use POI Loader instead.

You should try to use the Poi Loader program. It works great.

The POI loader is the way to go. I prefer CSV files which are in the form of an XL spreadsheet which I can edit to suit my purposes (ie delete data that I do no personally need). The POI loader tells you when it has copied the file. If you search for the new POIs and you get the message "No Matches Found" choose a location "Near..." where the POI is likely to be. It took me a while to figure that out.
