Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question, if I can.

What device do you wish to transfer the addresses or contacts from the Nuvi device, onto?

Or: onto what device are the addresses to go?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have a 2015 Mazda CX-5 which has the inbuilt infotainment system which includes navigation. The maps are stored on an SD card.
Please note it's using Mazda connect software which is working as the map updates work as they should but there doesn't seem to be a way to import the addresses from the Garmin to the Mazda as I explained in my first message.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 8 months ago.

Are the addresses you are asking about, on the Garmin, known as 'waypoints', or are they some other sort of addresses?

Can you see any brand name or model name on the infotainment system? (I admit I'm not good at figuring out which devices are in use from car models. Is yours the 'factory installed' system?)

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The system in my Mazda is produced NNG and I use the Mazda Connect software from the website.
From what I can see on the SD card the file that would keep the addresses would be Australia_ext.poi.sgn.

I've looked for info on this sort of conversion... I have found no useful information. I'm sorry - I don't have the sort of info. needed.

I have Opted Out in favor of an Expert who knows more about 2015 Mazda Connect or Garmin file conversions of this sort.
