I created a route using MapSource and downloaded it to my Nuvi. I then selected the route and started on my 140 mile trip from Point A to Point B. As I was driving through Eureka Springs, AR I suddenly got an audio speed alert, and when I looked at the screen it showed a speed limit of 0.6 mph. I have no idea where this came from, as I have not loaded any speed or proximity alerts. First time this has ever happened with my Nuvi 780.
Then on the way back from Point B to Point A along the same two-lane road, the speed alert did not sound.
Any idea what caused this? Although I have the MSN Direct Receiver, it has not been activated.
Do you have Custom POIs with numbers (ie numerals) in the file name? This will cause speed alerts.
I have many Custom POIs, organized into subfolders as you recommended in one of your earlier postings. One of these is named Motel_6, and sure enough I passed by one of these in Eureka Springs and got a speed alert of 6 mph.
Thanks for your help.......Durango
That's one of the things 'POI Verifier' checks for when verifing the POI file. If there is a number in the file name it asks you if you really want an alert; then gives you the option to remove it.
