Drivesmart 51 and GSAK

Recommended Posts

I have downloaded pocket queries to GSAK and then sent the waypoints to our old Nuvi for years.  It finally died and I purchased a Garmin Drivesmart 51 as a replacement.   I downloaded a pocket query to GSAK as usual, and selected the Drivesmart to send the waypoints, and it seems to have worked correctly as I did not get any errors.  My problem is that for the life of me, I cannot find where the coordinates are located on the Drivesmart unit.  On the old Nuvi, then were loaded into My Favorites and very easy to find.  I have checked every thing I can think of to find them, but am not having any luck.  I greatly appreciate any and all help.

I have the DriveSmart 61 and install mine using POILoader.  From there they are in a Extra POI's and they don't use up waypoint space. I have 10,000 caches in my Drivesmart

I have loaded POI Loader on my computer, however when I try to locate the file  from GSAK, I cannot find it.  I can see it on my computer but when using the Browse button, I can not navigate to the file.

If you use the macro StefandD linked to above you don't have to look for or move the files yourself, the macro loads it straight from GSAK to the GPS.

I tried the macro, and I was able to get my GSAK file into the GPS.  Thank you so much.

POI Loader does not let you select an individual GPX file.  You navigate it to the folder that contains the GPX file(s) and POI Loader will import all the GPX files in that folder. If you have multiple GPX files in that folder, each file will show up on the Garmin as a separate POI file.  Since there is a DriveSmart macro for GSAK, by all means use that.  I will save a few steps.
