Instruction to download and install POI in Garmin 760

How to display Beermapping POI on Garmin GPS
by
Mkiester

This procedure will convert the Beermapping.com data base to a format on a Garmin Nuvi  760 (and perhaps other Garmin GPS) that displays the name, address, town, city, and phone number.  It also displays an alert distance and a speed limit, which I cannot remove.

I am assuming you know how to download, save, run applications, follow applications instructions, and use Excel.
 
1 Be sure you have downloaded the Garmin POI loader https://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/case.faces?caseId=%7Be29ec960-ebe8-11dd-5c1e-000000000000%7D

2 Purchase the lifetime Beermapping POI for $15.

3 Sign into beermapping

4 Goto the Beermapping lookup site and select a state to be downloaded

http://beermapping.com/location-lookup/?locname=&city=&country=United+States&state=MO&zip=&t=

5 Click “More Complex cvx file” and save. This downloads the most information.

6 Open the file in Excel to delete the items you do not want, homebrew shops, beer bars….. and save.  Select ‘’yes’’ if you get a screen concerning noncompatiblity information.

7 Open the POI manager from Garmin  http://garmin.gps-data-team.com/poi_manager.php
Browse to select the Excel file.  Save as a GPXx file to a folder containing only GPXx files.

At this point, if you want to load several file for loading to GPS repeat step 4-7.

8 Connect you Garmin device to computer. Let it run until the blue line runs out.

9 Open the Garmin POI loader.  Use the ‘’Manual’’ setting.  Decide if you want to overwrite the old files and set proximity warnings as you load each file.

Your PIO are now in your GPS and also on your computer.

I also have run into places that are closed, so I recommend that you call ahead.
