Hi guys,

I noticed Papago provides function to make a call to POI. I found just a few POI that has a phone number and a phone icon on the screen where we can touch and make a call.

My question is, how do we add phone number in the waypoints that we want to submit?

You can use MapSource to include comments (ie address, phone number, opening hours, etc.) with your Waypoint/POI. From MapSource, select 'Waypoint Tool', then type in your info in the 'Comment' field.

Saving From Favourites to POI

Postby laika » Sun May 16, 2010 11:40 am

Don't know whether this is the correct sector to ask, but how can I save what is in the Favourites to the Points Of Interest? eg. I have saved XYZ restaurant in the Favs, how can I transfer this to the POIs and onto the Food subsection?
Thanks.

Thx Bro!!


No problem.

Makesure you have the program - Mapsource, coz you need it to create the *.GDB file.

For more information, please do a seach @ MFM Library "How to use Garmin Mapsource Tools
" : viewtopic.php?f=28&t=791

Hope this help @ O:)
