Help w/ maps on C330 SD card

You can check to see if you have the same problem:

I bought a brand new C330 from Amazon on July 2006. The unit works very well when i´m in the us using the preloaded maps. The problem is that the unit seens to be not recognizing any SD card inserted on it. Just bought from Amazon 7 days ago a fresh copy of Mapsource European navigator version 8 DVD, unlocked the product with success, used a card reader to program the card (it´s impossible to use the unit to tranfer the maps to the SD card) and nothing happens.

Not all POIs showing

I have a Nuvi 350. I was able to load the POIs on my SD card. However, the unit can only see 50 POIs on each category when I browse through the category. I can search other missing POIs when I search for them. So, is there a limit of number of POIs that would show per category?

RED LIGHT CAMERAS

AFTER I DOWNLOADED THE INTERSECTIONS WITH CAMERAS I THOUGHT THAT WHEN MY GARMIN WAS ON AND I WAS DRIVING THAT AT WHAT EVER INTERSECTION HAD A RED LIGHT CAMERA THAT IT WOULD SOUND THE ALARM,BUT INSTEAD IT SHOWS UP IN THE SYSTEM AS A POINT OF INTEREST,THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANTED. HOW CAN WE MAKE IT WORK? ALDEN

Keep speed alert but without proximity alert

Hi,

I have a Garmin nuvi 310 deluxe, with the latest firmware, and i use the latest POILoader version as well.

For speed cameras, how do you setup the POIs to only get the speed alert, without the proximity alert ?

Example
On my street, I have 5 Speed cameras POIs at 30mph each :
- When I drive down the street at 25 mph, I get 5 proximity alerts.
- When I drive down the street at 40 mph, I get 5 proximity alerts + Speed alerts.

DVD for Garmin I5 Users

The Garmin Model I5 comes with the Maps already installed in memory and they do NOT give you the DVD to use with Mapping software like the I3 model. I called Garmin and they are sending me the DVD at no charge.

poi and c530

i have a number of speed poi and redlight poi programed in to my c530. if i program my gps for a rout and the change of rout notice ,voice and pic, come up at the same time as the speed poi or redlight poi, i get a sound ding but no red pic of the poi. has any one else noticed this.

c530 antenna port

lost the rubber plug for the antenna port on my c530. is this something i should replace, and if so is garmin the only place to replace it. it seems so small and unimportant

Can not load custom poi files

To whom it may concern

I own a garmin C330 I have finely been able to load poi files on to the unit which I found on your site. My problem is there is no poi files for Syracuse NY or at least very little I have been trying to add my own but I have had no luck.
I tried to add them to the same folders witch already have CVS files and found that would not work I tried to make my own CVS folder and add longitude and latitude with no luck can you tell me how to load my own poi files.

Questions about Garmin I5

I have a new Garmin I5 and discovered that I have no mapping software. It is all preloaded. Is there a product I can use to create POI's for use with the I5? Is there a way to export the POI's that are on there? Also, I haven't purchased a memory card yet. What will a memory card buy me? Is this additional space for POI's?

loading poi on c530 unit or memory card

do speed poi or red light poi work better when loaded on c530 unit or memory card. i have found the reaction to speed poi and red light poi is rather slow on memory card. i will try to load both to the unit to see if it works better. any feed back would be helpful.

Redlight and speed alerts

I downloaded the redlight cameras and school zones files to my nuvi 350.I notice that nothing was working,school zones or cameras,no alerts.After serveral failed attempts i decided to convert the format from csv to gpx,now they work.Is it neccesary to do this with speed and proximity alerts?

C330 POI LIMIT ??

Hello
Does anyone know what the limit is for POI's for the C330.
I think someone once told me it was 500 POI's.

Anyone know for sure, or have more than that ??

I do know it will only show the closest 50, but the other 400+ I have are still in the machine, you just have to spell search for them.

Custom Icons

POI Loader's help file mentions you can load custom bitmaps with your POI files. The GPS will then display a small graphic along with the POI name on the map screen.

Has anyone tried this?

I'm not at all gifted as an artist, but I'd be glad to post icons any of you might create smile

Help

I just joined and am not sure if I was able to download the camera file onto my Nuvi 360. Is there a way to verify that it is on there? Thanks

SD CARD

OK
What does the SD Card do ??
Many of us have posted that we can NOT get the GPS units to reconise anything on the SD Cards.
All of our POI's have to go to the units memory.

HAS ANYONE FIGURED OUT HOW TO LOAD AND USE THE SD CARD ????
