POI Loader is free software for your computer that lets you upload customized points of interest (POIs) to your compatible Garmin device. With the help of POI Loader, you can update your compatible Garmin GPS with the latest POIs, including restaurants, safety camera locations and tourist destinations.
I have Garmin’s Fenix 2 which I love but find it does not locate the points of interest by my home. I simpy want to download some POI but instead the app asks me to create a file on my on my computer so I can download CSV files from my computer to the Fenix 2 watch. This does not make sense. I agree with a previous reviewer that Garmin should have the points of interst uploaded. So far I see this as a worthless app. Can anyone enlighten me? If POI actually exist somewhere on the Internet, where do I locate them. This app in my mind needs to be thought through. I look forward to a revamp of this app.
This is not totally worthless, and in fact is needed if you use trapster. I'm glad this program will add the csv files (and remove them) with no fuss, and without trying to sign me up for a bing or google toolbar. haha
This is totally worthless. They should already have tons of large categorized poi databases for their customers to import. Why should the customer have to load information that is already out there? And GNIS and other poi databases are so far off and full of dupes, I would not touch them.
Not especially intuitive or functional, it just does what it is supposed to do.
