Every time I drive by a rest area Garmin starts saying - "bong - bong - bong - bong". How do I remove this feature ??
Turn off alerts.
Can we assume your POI file is RestAreasCombined and that you load it to your GPS with POI Loader?
To get a bong bong alert, I can think of two ways this is happening:
1) You're using POI Loader in Manual Mode and have set RestAreasCombined to have an alert. If so, either use Express Mode, or if using Manual Mode, don't check the "This file contains proximity alert points" checkbox when you load the file to your GPS.
2) The file containing your rest areas [maybe RestAreasCombined(Ver.BN).csv] contains a numeral that was accidently added; e.g. RestAreasCombined(Ver.BN).csv. See:
Look to your computer folder that contains the POI files and see if there's a numeral anywhere in the filename. If so, delete the numeral. Now reload the POI files to your GPS.
Did either of these remove your Bong bongs? Good luck.
Your Garmin is trying to take you to Colorado.
By including a number in the filename of the rest area file, you have automatically created a speed alert. Every rest area you drive past is telling you that you are going faster than 1 or 2 mph. It is simple to fix. Just follow CraigW's instructions.
I agree, bong bong sounds like an alert about a 2 for 1 pipe sale at a pot shop!
