Verify the map version by touching the wrench and then Map and the Mapinfo. You should see something similar to the following. The lastest map is 2008. If you have purchased your unit with in the last couple of month, then you are entitle to a free map upgrade from v8 to 2008

The only free update you can get is on the system. If you touch the wrench and go to system and then touch about, you should have Software version 5.7 if you do, you are up to date, if you don't you can get an update. If you want a more up to date map, you will have to purchase it. I don't know who promised you updates on the maps but you should go back to them.

I want to go Geocaching and I want to know how to enter Lat/Long or update my equipment to this?


well i'm a great geocacher and i love to help people with the GPS'rs
so you found the guy :))))
It may not be the easiest approach, but you could create a custom POI file for your Geocache locations and then load them into your c330 using POI Loader.

If you're a premium member on Geocaching.com, it's my understanding that you can download locations in GPX format. POI Loader is supposed to read GPX files, but I haven't tried it with geocache locations yet.

Do you have a geocaching account that can download GPX files?

Someone told me that you can use Long/Lat with Google Earth, and you can save Google Earth POI's in GARMIN .cvs format, to use in the PIO Loader.

Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader. 

Cheers

Having problems with poi loader cant find csv file to be able to download files.unit is a garmin c31o


Here's how you get custom POI files on a Nuvi:

1. Download and install Garmin's POI Loader.

2. Create a folder on your computer, suggest Desktop, with a name like "Custom POIs". The name and location doesn't matter but you have to remember what it's called and where it is.

3. Go online and look for 3rd party POI files. Places like www.poi-factory.com have dozens if not hundreds of files.

4. Select ones you want on your gps to download. Make sure you are getting the files in the correct format. Newer Nuvis use *.csv files. Not sure if the C310 does. Download your POI files into the folder you created.

5. Plug your USB cable into the GPS and your computer. Wait until the driver finishes loading.

6. Run POI Loader and follow the instructions until you get to a screen asking for location of POI files. Point it towards the folder you created. Next tell it to load the POI files. After a few seconds it should give you a message "XXXX data points successfully loaded".

You should now be able to go to POI/Extras screen and see "Custom POI Files". Open that up and your custom POIs should be there.

POI menu with custom POI does not appear anywhere on the C330?


You need to use Garmin POI loader to input custom POI. After loading POI's they will show up in "My Favorite" under "Custom POI"
