Camera POI file

Post by burtsr »

I have a new Zumo 595. I've uploaded the cameras POI file that worked perfect in my old 665 but it does not seem to show cameras or play the custom sound in my 595.

Anyone have a though about this? Of course Garmin isn't much help.

Thanks

Possibly because your older zumo uses MP3 voice files but your newer one uses wav files?

Well, I think I figured it out. I actually made two changes and don't know which one did the trick but here it is.

I was uploading 5 different POI folders with custom sounds in each as one big POI file using Garmin's POI Loader (Mac). This method always worked on my 665 but his is what did not work on the 595.

I erased that file and uploaded each folder as a separate POI file again using POI Loader. You can see the separate files in the POI folder on the GPS.

I then turned off Garmin's Red Light file.

Now it works.

Still using .mp3 files
