    Can't find this in the Nav. manual, but prior to my Prime (Advanced) having its 12v battery disconnected for service, I had somehow programmed in all locations of a few businesses in just a few steps. For example, all Trader Joe's, all Cracker Barrel Restaurants, and all Costco locations. That's actually what was set in my nav., even though it was about a thousand locations - I had done this once before and have forgotten how to accomplish this.

    Has anyone else done this successfully? I must have found a kludge in the interface, since all I can figure out now is how to set certain POI's one-by-one, or only along a programmed route.

    You had to navigate to POI, then set what POIs you want to display and then select the individual businesses.

    Select "Options" on the top of the screen

    Go into the respective categories you need and choose your businesses

    Success, sort of. The manual for the Nav. says that a total of 6 POI location types can be set (mapped with icons). The car can only do 5 of the 6. I don't know why this is, but it might be due to memory restrictions.

    The Nav. interface, as we all know, is a piece of crap in this car. So this took... a... long... time... to program.
