When I download a POI such as Baseball Parks.cvs and then add the Baseball Parks.bmp is that all I have to do to for it to work? And if it had a sound like the "crack of a bat" followed by a verbal and the download was Baseball Parks.mp3 would that be correct for the whole thing to work right? On some of these POIs the .cvs and the .bmp and .mp3 are different. Do some files have to be renamed? Thanks ahead of time for your help.
Yes, that's all you have to do besides placing the files in the same folder on your computer.
And yes, you might need to rename some of the files so that they are named exactly the same other than the file extensions.
again for your help. I love this site!
Not that it matters...
but I would probably keep the name of the file as one word. Such as BaseballParks.csv and BaseballParks.mp3.
btw, cvs is a store...just kidding around. When I first started messing with csv files at work, I would call them cvs. Now, I call cvs stores csv stores.

You asked if naming the files properly and putting them in the same folder is all you need to do "for the whole thing to work right." On a proximity POI, you must set an alert if you want an alert to trigger. The easiest way is to run POI Loader in Manual mode and set the distance at which you want it to trigger. You may already know this, but I just wanted to make sure.

If I may nit pick a tiny bit, the EASIEST way is to embed the speed into the file name, let the loader calculate distance and use express loading. That way each time you update or add more files to your "loader" folder, these files still get loaded the same way each time without having to enter the stuff in manually each time.
Ya, as I warned, I am picking nits here.
But we aren't talking about speed alerts. His example was a proximity POI and I specified I was talking about proximity POIs.
mistake, lol!! Didn't see that, thats for the sharp eyesite. Oh to be young again! Thanks bentbiker and Guttermouth for giving me a heads up on alerts.
I know which is why I mentioned having the loader calculate the distances. If you don't like the distance it give, adjust as needed. But once you find the speed that gives the proper distance, then you can set it in the file name and forget it.
Again I was just nit picking and it isn't really all that important to the original poster's main question.
At the risk of sounding really dumb, which I'm quite good at, I'll ask this question. When embedding the distance in the file name, Is there a certain key word to use before the distance, such as "distance=5280"? The manual for my c330 is very limited in its content, so I don't even know if embedding the distance works on it, but thought I'd give it a try.
When embedding the distance in the file name
You can't embed the distance, as such. You can embed a keyword, that will create a Proximity Alert with a predefined distance (of 402m..1/4 mile).
You can embed numbers, which will create a Speed Alert instead.
For a Speed Alert, you have to be travelling at, or above the specified speed AND within the associated Proximity.
For a Proximity Alert, you just have to be within the specified distance.
Thanks a lot. I'll check it out!
