Installing POI's Concerns (icons and alerts)


I have followed install procedures for installing POI's to the Zumo 660. I am downloading putting reaming the .bmp and the mp3 to match the .gpx or .cvs and then running the poi installer says it updated. I see the custom POI's on the gps. If I just have the map view on and pass like a shell station the icon does not appear or the alert does not work. Should I be seeing the icons and alerts when I am near the poi?

Did you use the Manual mode

Did you use the Manual mode when installing with POI Loader?

You are going to have to zoom in close to see the icons.

The biggest problems with the alerts and icons not working are the files not being named the same except for extensions and having double extensions. Double-check each of them. The best way to prevent double extensions is to go to your folder options in the control panel and click view then find hide extensions for known file types and remove the check mark. Click ok.This is for windows xp.

Should be also noted when you have alert set and have not selected go to.The coordinates can not be more then 50 ft off the road of travel for you to be alerted.Selecting go to will give you the alert once you are within the distance of the location set by poiloader in manual mode or have built the alert distance in using a gpx file.
