What are GPI files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a GPI file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is a GPI file?
A .GPI file is a Garmin GPS Point of Interest file.
Files that contain the .gpi file extension are associated with Garmin GPS devices. The GPI files used by these GPS devices store the location and name of a user-defined POI (also known as a point of interest).
A user's GPI files are used by the Garmin GPS device to generate navigational routes. For example, if a user wants directions to a favorite restaurant, the GPS device would reference the GPI file to provide the user with directions to the specific location.
