Hi Guys.
I have a nuvi 610 and i have just created my first tour guide.
I then uploaded it to Nuvi, but i just could not find it when uploaded using Garmin Browser plugin. When i tried to download the gpi and copy it to garmin/poi dir on nuvi, it also didnt work. So i tried to use POI Loader, and it worked. It created a menu "Custom POIS" under "EXTRA" menu. But the problem is: it show each point in the tour, and do not group them!
Some idea?

Thanks a lot!

Could you let me know which tour you're trying to download so we can try to replicate this issue?  Have you tried downloading a tour that was created by someone else?
Thanks, Scott

I experienced the same exact issues you did. Using the Communicator plug in sometimes did not work, copying directly didn't work eithe, but when I used POI Uploader it worked very reliably.
I don't know why that happens and I didn't see anything about this issue in other forums.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help...hopefully someone will come to our rescue!

Just wanted to reiterate that this is most likely a tour-specific situation.  If one of you could send me a list of tours that are now showing up properly, we will be able to more fully research the issue to determine if it is a problem with the tour's content or with our system.
Thanks, Scott

We've made some changes to our TourGuide download format.  Please try downloading a TourGuide again (by using Garmin Communicator or downloading the GPI file direclty) and see if it works.

I have a Nuvi 750. I downloaded a tour guide in GPX format along with the Media Files as a seperate download (Zip File) to the same directory.
I extracted the media files and the were extracted to a DATA directory that WinZip built. I then loaded the POIs into my Nuvi750 using PoiLoader. Every thing worked fine. I seems the media files are intergrated into the .POI file.
When I down loaded the same tourGuide in GPI format using Garmin Communicator it worked fine also. The media files are embedded into the GPI file befor you download it, so you don't have to worry about them. This also retains the tour name for the GPI file and will stay in your Garmin even when you load more POIs suck as GPX or CVS. The GPI file does not get erased. The only way id to directly the Garmin Drive and deleting it manually.
