Depends on exactly what you're talking about. Garmin have favourites which can be added/edited etc on the device itself. POIs can't be.

Is it possible to download the favourites to your computer (i.e. longitude, latitude, and name) so that you can add to your POIs?

I keep a master list of my POIs in an Excel spreadsheet. I currently save new locations in an app on my phone and then send those details to my computer and transfer them to the spreadsheet. I would like to be able to save new locations as favourites on the Garmin and then transfer to the master list Excel spreadsheet.

I then convert the master list spreadsheet to my POIs for Garmin or TomTom.

Regards,

Certainly you can download your favourites, but be careful.

The details are in the file Current.gpx, which is in the folder called GPX on your device.

But beware, the .gpx file also contains your recent tracklogs, and so there will be thousands of trackpoints also in the .gpx file, below the favourites data.

Your best bet would be to import current.gpx into BaseCamp or copy the relevant points directly from your device into BaseCamp. From there you can output an edited set of points for importing into Excel.
