I recently loaded POI's (including my updated redlight camera files) to my Nuvi 2555. For some reason, the camera icons no longer show up on the map and I don't get the alert (it worked fine before). If I go into the custom POI menu, I can see all the POI's and navigate to them. What did I do wrong?
you went from a 660 to a 2555, it's probably the alerts. Your new unit doesn't play MP3 so they need to be converted to WAV files and you also need SOX. I suggest you start here:
working fine on the 2555 for a while (actually haven't used the 660 for a few years). I agree that it's probably the alerts. The files were .wav and I just switched them to mp3 as a test. Thinking about it, the problem started right after the last firmware update. I'll read up on SOX.
Any other sox version is know to create problems.
One thing I noticed was that when I loaded the POI's with the mp3 files (instead of wav) I got a "load successful" at the end. Prior to that there was a message that the wav files failed. The camera icons are now showing up. Might be a day or two before I can drive to a camera intersection to verify that everything is working, but it looks encouraging at this point. Thanks for the help.

Everything seems to load now. I have the wav files and SOX is in the POI Loader folder. I'm getting 3 dings instead of the wav. I read through the common causes for this, and it looks like everything is right (no double extension, files named correctly, etc...) Any other ideas?
Just reloaded everything again and it seems to be working.
Thanks for all the help!
It helps me and others to know what was wrong and how you fixed it.
I don't know exactly what the problem was. I suspect that when I got the latest update of POI Loader, SOX got dumped.
If you had an older version of POI Loader that was, at one time, placed in Program Files (as I recall), then the new one being placed in Program Files (x86) would not have any version of sox.exe (let alone the correct one). Sox.exe must be placed by the user into the same folder from which POI Loader runs.
