Default GPS - POI (Points of Interest)

I'm still learning about GPS' and POI's etc.

Right now, I use Google Earth to find the place I want to visit and mark the spot with a Push Pin. I save the Push Pin with a .kml extension and then use PoiEdit to append the POI to my saved custom POI's..............

I use Garmin's POI Loader to transfer it to my Nuvi 250.

Maybe I making this more complicated than it needs to be.

How do you do it?

Is there any interest it posting favorite POI's here?

Anyone use Garmin's MapSource?
