Alerts for HD Dealers

 

I have the HD Dealers POIs on my Zumo 550 and also put them into my Nuvi 1450, the Nuvi won't alert when I get close, I've reloaded them, I tried 5 miles even 2 miles but they won't alert until I've driven to them and then I have to be right on top of them. Any ideas?

How did you load them?

You need to run POI Loader in manual mode and set the distance. The distance is set using either feet or meters depending on the measurement system.

POI alerts will happen IF you are traveling on a road within 50 feet of the location. It almost sounds as if you entered 2 and then 5 in the distance instead of 10000 and 25000.

The zumo 550 uses mp3 and the 1450 needs a wav file and sox.exe to get the alerts to work.See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25730 if you didn't use a wav file.

If you use SOX

If you use SOX for your 1450, you can also load the wav file to the zumo. It saves having to keep two sets of POI.
