    Question preload destination address???

    Hello everyone,
    I wonder if there is a way to add a list of addresses to SD and Igo can read them.
    It is not user-friendly to key in addresses in GPS unit.
    Thanks.

    I usually save as a favorite or use the history for the destination.

    mpbsr,
    You still have to key in the first time.
    It is easier to plan a trip, via point, multiple destinations on a computer, but I am looking for a way to import this info.

    you can use google earth and make poi in kml format. then you just have to choose from your poi list.

    you can also make a route in google earth (never did that) and load it. here is what i found (by zwillingman):


    There is a way to get Routes into the igo8.
    I tested it and for me it works fine.
    First you have to create the following directories in the ig8-directory on your sd-card: \iGO8\CONTENT\USERDATA\ROUTE
    If you now copy .kml (e.g. Google-Earth) in Version 4 or 4.2 into the new "ROUTE" directory then the route will be imported automatically at igo8 starts. Please do not forget to check the optionbox for "saving as route, track and waypointlist", like it is done in the attachment.
    The imported route appears in light grey and it is recommended to open it and to save it as newroute. Then you can delete the imported one.
    As I said, I tested it an it works fine.

    look here for detailed info:

    miomoshe,
    Thanks so much for the info. I give it a try.
    I know that I can plan my trip in googlemap then send to GPS, but it works only with newer GPS like MioMoov with the Mio utility installed on my computer.
    I try to get a work around on my Mio C320.

    it works on any gps device that has igo, if you have google earth on your pc.

    I try the KML file thing, but it does not work correctly for me.
    I plan a short trip from pt A to pt B, save a place to KML format, copy to the the igo8\userdata\route then start Igo8.
    After loading the route, with my GPS disabled, it always put a start at a location a gps last seen (where I turn off the gps).
    If I disable (uncheck box) the gps then browse the map insert a start, via pt then destination pts, it works fine. Also, weird.., it picks different route against the route googleearth does.
    Any idea??
