Points of Interest (POI) is not the same as routes. Routes consist of a start point, possible a series of via points, and a destination point. All of which are plotted on the PC routing software and the uploaded to the GPS device. This process transfers the way points and route information. A given in this process is the maps in the GPS are identical to the maps on the PC. ie: Rand McNally would have provided both.

I'll give them a call and pose the question directly to them. Thanks.

I have an old Garmin 2720 Street Pilot. It is a great unit but as mentioned hard to get updated maps. I will likely go to the Rand McNally product and am curious if my data where all my saved campsites are stored can be transferred to it? I have them backed up on data files on my laptop in the Mapsource database.

Well, I called 'em. The conversation was short and sweet.
Me: "Can the 7710 GPS accept routes created on a PC?"
Rand McNally: "No."
4 second pause
Me: "Thank you."
End of call

I had a Tom Tom & gave it away for a Rand McNally 7710. The Rand has many great features such as showing you what lane to be in when making an exit etc. It also tell you the name of the road you are exiting on which Tom Tom did not. Only feature I do not like is the unavailability to get new voices as the male\female are not so good. all in all a great buy for the RV.
