    Hi All
    I am no good with gadgets so this may seem a simple question. I am going to buy the europe full mapping and lifetime updates for my garmin nuvi 300 which i have had for the past 4 years my question is how do i put poi on it and once on how do i use them. I put some on last year but think i did it wrong as when i went to use they only had numbers and no names so didnt know what they where it was french aires.

    Please answer in simple terms please:Rofl1:

    Hi Gerry,

    Installing the lifetime updates is a bit of a long winded process and takes about 2 to 3 hours due to downloading etc. but worth it when you get there. You can get some information from the following;
    http://garminpoi.co.uk/
    http://zappysblog.com/garmin-tutorials/
    The last one gives step by step information.

    Good Luck.
