    Yes you can,as 'custom POI's' and if you have any problems the garmin support line is 0808 238 0000 (Freephone) or 0870 850 1242. They are very helpful.

    The downside with custom poi's on a garmin is that you cannot set it to alert you when you are near one (unless they've changed it recently)-you have to look at the list,choose the one you want and tap on it. Unlike Tom-Tom or Mio both will alert you at a preset distance from any custom POI's you ask them to.
    I did speak to Garmin when I discovered this and they told me they had not 'identified a need' for this function :BigGrin:
    Despite that-I love my Garmin,particularly the lifetime free updates that were included :thumb:

    Hi Mike

    Thanks for that but I can only find CCC sites on the Garmin website do you know if there are downloads for aires stellplatz and campsites in Europe?

    Thanks
