    (Searched here for "POIMaker" first, no hits)

    Using a Mac...

    Used JaVaWa's POI Maker to create a POI file (GPX) but the instructions end with the creation of the GPX file. How do I get it on the Montana?
    Do I just copy the file onto the USB linked Montana? Do the files need their own sub-dir?
    Do I use JaVaWa Device Manager?
    Another utility?

    TIA

    I use the Garmin POI loader utility. It is free. http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/

    My pleasure! I've learned so much from the many people on this board who give so freely, that I am delighted when I can offer up a small nugget from time to time. :D
