I want to show all my Custom POI in the following format:

POI (waypoint) name

Address
City, Postcode

Phone #

I have been playing with various POI editors and have succeeded by producing Garmin .GPX Extended format. The following:

<wpt lat="50.7951633" lon="-1.9756347">
<name>Wimborne Market</name>
<cmt> </cmt>
<sym>Information</sym>
<extensions>
<gpxx:WaypointExtension>
<gpxx:DisplayMode>SymbolAndName</gpxx:DisplayMode>
<gpxx:Address>
<gpxx:StreetAddress>1 Poole Rd</gpxx:StreetAddress>
<gpxx:City>Wimborne</gpxx:City>
<gpxx:PostalCode>BH21 1QA</gpxx:PostalCode>
</gpxx:Address>
<gpxx:PhoneNumber Category="Phone">+441202841212</gpxx:PhoneNumber>
</gpxx:WaypointExtension>
</extensions>
</wpt>

Displays in the Index (screen 1) as:

-----------------------
Wimborne Market
1 Poole Rd
-----------------------
And when selected (screen 2):
-----------------------
Wimborne Market

1 Poole Road
Wimborne BH21 1QA

Phone:+441202841212
------------------------

In addition a "More" tab appears which when selected produces an additional screen (screen 3) with the same information.

The questions are:

(1) What determines that there is a "More" tab on screem 2?

(2) Is there a limit to what can be displayed on Screen 2?

(3) What extended fields appear in each of the three screens? For example it would appear that if I populate the <cmt> and <desc> fields these will appear on screen 3 but not on screen 2.

(4) If I fill in the <sym> with "Waypoint" I seem to get a different result than when I fill it with "Information"

(5) Is there a clear user manual for completion of this information and how the Nuvi deals with it? (I don't want to mention the hoops I have had to jump through to even get to this point!)

Thanks in advance for any help with this
