POI Loader for Mac software version 2.4.2. As of September 29, 2020. Download (14.01 MB) View installation instructions. Notes: POI Loader allows you to load custom points of interest into your unit. The input files can be downloaded from the internet or you can create your own. Using POI Loader 2.5.2 with this file, will result in the data appearing twice (undocumented change from 2.4.2) It's not understood that the ' characters are not to be taken literally. The 9 decimal places are quite entertaining too!

POI Loader is free software for your computer that lets you upload customized points of interest (POIs) to your compatible Garmin device. With the help of POI Loader, you can update your compatible Garmin GPS with the latest POIs, including restaurants, safety camera locations and tourist destinations.

Mercedes Garmin Map Pilot (Audio 20) SD-card based sat navs can be enhanced with additional POI's and the locations of stationary and mobile safety cameras via POIbase.

Both the POIbase PC application and POIbase for PC can be used for this.

POIbase is compatible with:

  • Mercedes Garmin Map Pilot (Audio 20)

Generally speaking, all Garmin Map Pilot versions can be enhanced with POI's and safety cameras via POIbase. However, as older versions are somewhat buggy as regards POI's, we recommend upgrading to the newest Garmin Map Pilot version. The navigation software can be upgraded via the Mercedes Download-Manager.

The download manager also allows you to backup your SD card, which is advisable.

For POIbase for PC to automatically detect your SD card as Garmin Map Pilot, you will also need to install the free Garmin POI-Loaderon your PC.

Features & Notes

Garmin points of interest
  • Automatic device recognition via POIbase for PC (for Garmin POI-Loader users)
  • Manual device selection in the POIbase Web-Version
  • Safety cameras can be displayed on the map (generic safety camera icon)
  • POI's can be dislplayed on the map (including brand icons)
  • Audio warnings when approaching safety cameras (not direction-sensitive, volume can be adjusted)
  • POI's can be selected as destination in radius search
    (Limited, see instrucitons)

Unfortunately, Garmin Map Pilot will only display safety cameras with one generic icon, so it's not possible to differentiate between stationary safety cameras and potential mobile ones. Thus we recommend only installing the stationary safety cameras.

Installing POI's with POIbase for PC

  • Download and install POIbase for PC.
  • Download and install Garmin POI-Loader.
  • Remove the SD card from the sat nav and place it in a card reader connected to your PC.
  • Launch POIbase for PC-and select 'Fast Detection'.
  • POIbase will detect 'Garmin' and 'Garmin Map Pilot'. Activate Garmin Map Pilot via 'Select this Device'.
  • Select the drive allocated to the Garmin Map Pilot SD card.
  • As POIbase can only be used by registered users, either log into your account or create a new free account if you do not have one yet.
  • After logging in, you will see the POIbase main interface and can select POI categories for download under 'Load POI's and Speed Cams' 'Download POI's' or 'Download speed cams'. Use the'Add' button to activate any categories you wish to download. Via 'Back' you can switch to other POI categories.
  • When you are satisfied with your selection, hit the yellow 'Downloadxx POI's 'button.

Using Garmin POI-Loader for POIbase POI's

  • Click 'Next' to complete the export. Garmin POI-Loader will create a file named '1097.GPI' in the location you chose.

  • Some Garmin Map Pilot versions display inaccurate symbols when warning of safety cameras. The error can be fixed as follows:
    On the SD card you will find a folder named 'Garmin Fonts'. Make a backup of it on your PC and save it somewhere you will find it again. Then open the folder on the SD card and delete the files '006-D0952-01.bin', '006-D0952-02.bin', '006-D4436-01.bin', '006-D4436-02.bin' ,'006-D4436-03.bin' and '006-D4436-06.bin'.
  • By default, installed POI's will only be displayed as icons on the map and can be selected as a destination. There is a workaround to get them to show up in radius or list searches too. More info can be found : here (German only).
