It's been awhile since I did this, but as I recall you put all of your custom POI files (typically these are .csv or .gpx files) in the same folder on your computer then run the Garmin POILoader software on that folder. It integrates all your custom POI files into the single .poi file that is then loaded into the Garmin device. File naming is therefore not a problem. I think the detailed instructions for generating the file are on Garmin's web site: http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/

No, the 730N doesn't run Garmin software. I don't know that anybody has found a way to load custom POIs into it.

Re: Custom POI Loads for 430N

does the same apply for loading favorites from my NUVI to the 430N?

Do I just place the current.gpx in a GPX folder?

No, it's not that easy. You have to process the .gpx file through Garmin's program. Look higher in this thread at Remleym's post of 5/1/2011 for details. That's how I got POIs into my 430N.

Re: Custom POI Loads for 430N

I just dropped my GPX file into my POI folder and created a new GPI file as described, and it loaded into my 430N fine.

I first renamed the GPX file to "Favs", and it's now in my POI's in the FAVS folder.

Like the previous poster said, just click on the POI and select SAVE, and it saves them to your Favorites.

I then reprocessed my POI files without the GPX file and dumpped that into the 430N (erasing the original FAVS folder)
