The many features that are implemented into the Magellan Content Manager - ToolBox program include the ability to automatically receive notification about product upgrades, hardware driver updates and updated map releases. Magellan is a GPS device that can be updated with map data from designated servers operated by the manufacturer, and the Magellan Content Manager - ToolBox software allows users to quickly and easily update their map data without going through complex configuration settings.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .poi files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .poi. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
