We have the above sat nav and very happy with it.

As I have a little bit of time on my hands, you can spend only so much time on a bike turbo trainer, I thought I would investigate adding some campsite POI's. Map updates have to done using a paid service via Naviextra. There doesn't seem to be a clear cut method that is documented for manually adding POIs, so if anyone has done this on the above models I would be very interested in the process that you used.

Thanks in advance.

Ditcha you are correct it does have an SD and I have had a look at a backup and found a folder and POI files which seems to have a couple of other file extensions as well. So not sure if these additional files are created when the POIs are used or what.

Any poi you want to add should be in the form of .klm, and should be put in the folder "iGO/content/userdata/poi", then the icon files for the poi which will be a .BMP should be in "iGO/content/userdata/usericon" if the folder "userdata" is not in the "content" folder then create it putting in the "poi" and "usericon" folders within it.

Here is a list of folder hierarchy and file extension explained

I have some poi for campsites here and abroad I can email to you if you want pm me your email address

Thanks for that Ditcha, brilliant. I can't get access to the SD as the van is in storage and we can't gain access to it until lockdown is eased.

I may take you up on the POI offer tomorrow, I have packed up for the evening, been driving a desk all day!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
