Garmin Nuvi 1490 POI Download

Greetings all. Does anyone know how to download POI's to a Garmin Nuvi 1490 from a computer. I have downloaded POI Editor but it will not load onto the Garmin. Many Thanks Dave

I use a program that I got from Garmin called POI Loader.
I've used it very successfully for several years, first with a Nuvi 660 and now with a Nuvi 3790.

I can't remember how I got it so you may have to do a search within the Garmin site.

When you say it will not load onto the Garmin

Just to clear up any confusion
