Downloading GPS Coordinates From Google Maps or Mapquest to GPS Navigator

A useful, convenient feature available with Google Maps and Mapquest allows you to download a location you’ve found (GPS coordinates and address) directly to your TomTom or Garmin GPS navigator.
With TomTom home running and your TomTom navigator connected to your PC, search for and find your desired location. You then click on the send link bringing up a popup Send to web form. To finish you pick the GPS link and TomTom from the Brand dropdown box and click send. The address will be transferred to your TomTom navigator and saved as a favourite. It’s that simple!

Once you have found your address or business listing on you can transfer the listing to your Garmin GPS navigator by clicking on the Send to GPS link found on results pages on the site.
For your Garmin device to communicate with the web browser over a USB or serial connection you need to have a compatible Garmin GPS navigation device and have downloaded and installed the correct Garmin Communicator Plugin for your device. Windows and Mac versions are available.
