Hi Bartmp8,

I am using map version 2.28 and software version 3.30. Looks like it is neither the map or the hardware problem. :-k

I also face the same problem on the frequent 'recalculating'.

I guess it is possible if you have the will. But I must admit, I have no idea.
Try to search for various file converters. GPSbabel comes to mind, not sure
if it will recognise Nokia format.

Otherwise you may have to do it manually. Get the co-ords in Nokia and
using Mapsource enter those POIs. Its fine for a few but if you have a
few hundred - good luck.

Let's hope some experts will come along to suggest a way/software.

GPS: Nuvi 260W
I have a Garmin 260W and I saved a few locations in M'sia. Recently my friend asked me how to go to one of the locations in my saved POI and I have been looking all over the GPS to retrieve the GPS location but could not find any.

I did not save the address but just saved the location using "Where am I" feature when I reached the place. The saved favourites did not show the GPS location or address at all.

Is this even possible to retrieve the GPS from Garmin?

Hi all,

It's ok. i found it in the Current.GPX file. I had to open it with Notepad and search through the names.

In your main memory, under the Garmin folder, look for the sub-folder "GPX". All the places in your "Favourite" are stored there. Thanks.
