With the help of Garmin's free POI Loader software, you can upload TourGuide files to your compatible Garmin device*. Below are links to several free and subscription services on the Internet that provide these custom TourGuide files.
Our POI Loader supports the TourGuide feature in GPX format only. This means you must upload TourGuide files saved in this file format. Many of the TourGuide sources listed below provide points of interest saved in the above format.
