POI Problem (warning for a 35 mph zone)

 

Had to drive from Mesa to Denver so I downloaded all the POI's I thought I would need. No problems until I stopped at a rest area just over the AZ/NM line in NM. Started the car and immediately got a warning for a 35 mph zone. Thought that was for the rest area but once on I-40 the warning stayed on until I couldn't stand it anymore and turned off all the POI's. Later in the trip I reactivated the POI's and it was gone. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

Numeral 35

Welcome to The Factory.

Typically, an unexpected speed alert occurs when one of the POI files you loaded contains somewhere in the filename a numeral. This may also result in a missing green "Go" button preventing you from creating a route to any location that's part of the numeralled.csv file, so you do want to fix this.

For instance, if you downloaded a file for a motel chain and the filename was Budget35Motel.csv, you will experience what you're seeing. Deleting the 35 in the filename or changing the file to BudgetThirtyfiveMotel.csv will solve the problem.

Check on your computer the POI files you downloaded and see if one or more of the csv or gpx POI files contains numerals. If so, change the filename(s) and reinstall them to your nuvi with POI Loader making sure that the old installed file on the nuvi is either deleted or overwritten.

Let us know how you fare. And if you have no filenames with numerals, let us know which POI files you're using and whether all were downloaded from here at The Factory. If you tinkered with the data in any csv or gpx file before loading it with POI Loader, let us know what you did.

Unknown alert.

Connect GPS back to computer and run poiloader.Select manual mode. Slowly go through each poi file and look in the alert fields.It will be easy to spot the file that is causing the alert you will see it listed. Just touch next as you go through each file so you retain data.

This is good to know. I

This is good to know. I would've have thought it was just a bug/glitch of some sort.

Thanks

Thanks for all the responses about the 35 mph warning staying on. Heading back to Phoenix from Denver so fixing this will help keep my sanity.

easy fix

no worries, it's a number in some POI filename (look for 35 somewhere) ... last time something like that happened to me I had 7mph speed warnings .. after I loaded 7eleven.csv POI file wink easy fix as guys posted above, just change the filename and reload POIs.
