Custom POI Sources

With the help of Garmin's free POI Loader software, you can upload additional, custom points of interest (POI) to your compatible Garmin device*. Below are links to several free and subscription-based services on the Internet that provide these custom POIs.

Garmin’s POI loader converts GPX and CSV files to a proprietary Garmin format (GPI), which is compatible with your Garmin device. Many of the custom POI sources listed below provide points of interest saved in the above file formats or offer POIs that can be converted to POI Loader formats. Please contact the companies below for further information on how to use their POIs with your Garmin unit.

Developers who would like to join our list of POI Sources should email inquiries to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
