Please verify if firmware of your receiver is up to date.

the newest version of GPSMAP 76CSx is Ver. 3.60, realised on Feb 18, 2008

if not, make upgrade either by WebUpdater application or download it direct from www.garmin.com

enter: www.garmin.com
then click "On the Trail" -> Mapping Handhelds -> GPSMap 76CSx -> quick links: Updates&Downloads -> Unit Software

What does my Howard Miller Tide Clock need to be set on right now


You need a local tide chart. You can look up online or get a printed on at most tackle stores. Based on high or low tide, turn the knob in the back to match. For instance, if high tide at the location you want to monitor is 12 noon, and is is 10 am, align the hour hand with the "2" to the left side of high tide.

Nixon lowdown - hourly chime


It is so simple. I struggled with this forever then called customer service. To turn off the hourly chime just press the bottom right (wave/reset) button while in the normal time/tide screen. You do not need to go through all of the modes. Just one button press from the home screen. When you see the target icon disappear you have done it.

I want to just put in post code but then it asks for house no. and street which i dont have. Can I get to destination with only postcode. Its new to me!


use the POI ( points of interest ) feature. select poi / category / pick a poi, ie. gas station / near city, enter city! that will get you in the city(zip) you want..if you dont know the city name, type the zip in google to locate it.

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.

Churches are not loaded as POI's. on my ONE XL-S It usuall will not recognize any church a.k.a. place of worship, even if I enter the name. Please help!!


The Points of Interest (POI) database consists of two files:
An OV2 file, which contains the POI's information ov2.jpg A BMP logo of the POI (optional) bmp.jpg
Step 1: Download and unzip the POI file.

1. Download the POI zip file. Save the file on your computer by selecting “save” when prompted. Save the file in a place where you can easily find it again for step 3 of the installation (e.g. on your Desktop or in My Documents)
2. Unzip the POI file by right-clicking the file and selecting Extract All..

  • This will run the Extraction Wizard. Choose Next.

  • Click on Browse... and choose a location on your computer where you want to extract the files. Click Next.

  • Once the files have been extracted, choose Finish to view the files.


Step 2. Connect your TomTom to your PC

Connect your TomTom to your PC using the USB data cable or dock. When prompted if you want to connect to the computer, tap on YES.

Step 3. Copy the POI files from your PC

1. Go to the directory on the local hard drive of your PC where you extracted the files in Step 1.
2. Highlight these files then right-click them and choose Copy.

Step 4. Copy the POI files to your TomTom

1. Go to mycomputer.jpg.
2. Double-click your TomTom under Devices with Removable Storage tomtom.jpg.

3. Then go to the map directory, for example the folder na.jpg.

4. Righ-click and Paste the POI files into this folder.

5. Right-click your TomTom device and choose Eject before removing it from the USB cable or dock.


You can now use the new POI on your TomTom device via Navigate to... > Point of Interest.

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"
