XXL540 POI alert voice for POI's I install (new user, be kind)

I have downloaded a couple of POI's for my Tomtom XXL540 and it seems Like I have them loaded correctly. I now see the POI in preferences, I have checked the Poi (for example Pure-Gas) and I then go to alert.. I choose it for alert, I have entered 200 yards, have chosen the voice alert and saved all this.


Next edition of maps (865?) should be out in the next week to 10 days.

how do i manually send an ov2 file to my tomtom

I have read the forum and created a ov2 file. I now want to get it on my tomtom xl 350. I dont want to upload it to the tomtom server because the poi's in the file are private. Anyway to send this file to only my device?

TomTom XXL 550 - can you stop the auto zoom feature?

I just received a 550 XXL, replaces a failed Nuvi 200W.

I like the unit so far, the only thing I don't like is that you can manual set a zoom automatically changes back. I like to set it so I can see the majority of the surrounding roads/features, but on a long trip; the unit zooms out and loses that detail.

Is there a fix? I can't find a setting anywhere to control this...

How do I download bidmap folder to my Tom Tom?

I have successfully downloaded the POI I want but they now show up as a red box on my GPS when I locate them. I was told to get the name of the item to show up instead of the red box I have to also download the bidmap for that item. I do not see bidmap files to download when I enter the item. I will use Home Depot as an example. Any help would be appreciated.

Is there a way to make this GPS turn on when you turn on the ignition and off when you turn the ignition off?
