I have a Nuvi 255w and just started using POIs. My question is: What format should I save sound files; wav or mp3?
The nuvi 255W can't play mp3 files so you'll need wav files. See the FAQ for details, including the need for sox.exe if you use a PC:
I know you didn't ask, but if you want pop-up alerts with no sound, go here:
I have so many alerts on my GPS that I got tired of hearing them, so I use silent alerts for a visual alert on some of them, like factory tours and stuff.
Ooops...forgot to do the sox thing. Maybe that's why I got an error for all the .wav files when I did an uploader earlier today. I'll let ya know how it turns out when I get home and try it again.
