Use the back or menu buttons until you reach the main Mio Map Screen. It should say Mio Map V3.3. It will have 6 big button options and two small options in the upper right hand corner. Chose the tools option(small hammer/wrench). You will have a screen with six big buttons again. One of them is "General" and it looks like a couple of sprockets/cogs. Choose that option. Then pick "set favorite destinations" close to the bottom of the screen. It should be straightforward from there. Hope this helps.

How do I find POI for a city that I am going to visit ? I can only find POI within my vicinity. I went to where am I then programmed the new city I was going to be in but it kept looking for an address....


Hello,

To find distant POI's or one close to your destination all that you need to do is when in the "Points of Interest" section under "Where To?" change the near setting to recent destination or any of the other selections.

Hope this helps!

MY POI in Mio C220


The manual doesn't match the software :)

This has been driving me crazy too.

Answer:
You can't do it from 'cockpit' view.
Press 'Menu -> Home -> Map -> Bottom right corner button (to show 'route to', 'add via'...) and the rightmost button is 'Add POI'.

To get back to cockpit view, press 'Menu -> Home -> Cockpit'.

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.

Go to Preferences, select Restart GPS. Then Enter Coordinates. Keep hitting the enter key until you get to the time field, now set your local time. And no, you will not lose your POI.

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"
