Hi all at GPS Information!


I need some help “hiding” some waypoints/POI on my GPS.

I have 2 point databases. But I only want to see and search one database at the time.

Is there anyway to hide one database completely?

I hoped transferring 2 GPI files and using the “Select Database” would do the trick. But all the points in both databases are listed/shown when opening the “Custom POI” and Map page.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

/Thomas

I don't believe that you can do this with Custom POIs.

One way around this, is to put them on two different microSD cards and swap them out when you want to change databases.

Dude, you have to give more details about the GPS device you have and the firmware it is having. All features of GPS devices may vary accordingly so you need to specify it all if you expect to get useful help. If you have a high end device having multiple memory card slots then I guess you can pull of the trick pretty easily by storing POI separately and switch them as you wish. Also you may want to consider buying newer GPS device that allows hiding unwanted POI.

The post title says the OP has a Garmin 60Csx.
