Post Installing new POI help

I'm having some trouble installing new POI files. I assume they go in the country directory? For example mines a USA device, so I put the BMP and OV2 files in my USA_Canada directory.

I tried installing Starbucks and Walmart, and the icon shows up on my device, however whenever I search for a location in certain cities, nothing comes up. I got these files from this site. Are these the whole United States, or certain locations only?

Also is there anyway to save POIs on the device while in use? I can only figure out how to save an address as a favorite. Also is it hard to make the custom POI files via this sites tool? And what directory do those go in?

I couldn't find the directory with my restaurants/hotels/etc OV2 files, so I couldn't edit those via this sites tool, what directory are those in?

Thanks for any help!

Hi Travis,

Check to see if both the BMP and OV2 files have identical file names.

I had a similar problem and found if there was a slight difference in file names either the BMP or OV2 file wouldn't display.


Your Name
