You can now download a POI (Points of Interest) file for all FLT trailheads where parking exists that can be easily downloaded into your Garmin Nuvi automotive GPS unit. This allows you to get turn-by-turn directions to parking trailheads, without having to type in the coordinates. >From our website www.fingerlakestrail.org, this is how you get to the instructions and files: Home > Go Hiking > Hiking the FLT… > Finding the Trail…, and then scroll to the bottom to find information on the files to download.
Once downloaded into your Garmin Nuvi find the parking areas with: Where to? > Extras > Custom POIs. The following then appear: All Categories, FLT B1, FLT B2, etc. Best to choose the map you want, and then touch a parking area to get more info.
For those of you without Garmin Nuvi units, there is a GPX file that you may find useful with your automotive GPS unit at the webpage mentioned above. If you figure out how to use that info with your non-Garmin unit, please let us know so that we can include this on this webpage for others. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
