Thanks for the instructions, Rob.  However, POI Factory only had two
restaurants listed so that wasn't very useful but I'll use the directions
for converting other things..

  Hi Cindy,

  In a nutshell:

  Go to:
  Click on: POI files, then restaurants. You can also try outdoor.
  Download the .csv files of interest to you.
  Go to the Loadstone Converter:
  First read the documentation, then
  Process the file you have downloaded.
  Import the resulting file to Loadstone GPS. (Bluetooth, Infrared, Cable)
  Follow the instructions on importing in Part 3 of the Getting Started
  It's advisable to create a new database for POI's outside your daily
