I'm thinking of joining insider but I would really like some idea of how many locations are in the files for GPS.

Thanks

Right now, there looks like there are 1,160 different restaurants with reviews.

By the way, I did it for my GPS and I love it!

I tried to add them--maybe BB or tsores could give me advice? I have a Garmin nuvi 660. I don't know whether it's the GPS or me, but one of us confuses easily!

Hi,

Make sure you have the utility poiloader, available from the Garmin site http://www.poi-factory.com/tools/garmin/poi-loader. There's also a good tutorial at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/85

Anyone with a Garmin know how to handle this: when you download the Roadfood POI's, they are put in a Roadfood "folder" on the GPS. If you downlad again later, another folder is created. How do you delete the old download? Don't see any way.

How do I remove custom locations from my Garmin GPS?

Newer versions of POI Loader (v 2.4.0 or higher) have an option to uninstall all custom POI's from your GPS.

The old way
With older POI Loader versions, the only way to remove custom
POI data was to replace it with another file.
