I have a Garmin Nuvi 760 and trying to work out how to load the POI updates.
I have downloaded some and when I click on the icon it opens in mapsource but won't load into the Nuvi apparently in this format. Do I have to somehow convert these files to something else?
I have also downloaded the redlight/speed camera POI's from http://poi.gps-data-team.com/_safety/
Is that ok?
I have listed below the steps that I have used on my nuvi 760 to obtain successful results. Hopefully this will be helpful to you.
1. Create a folder on your computer for your POI's, sounds and bitmaps.
a.) i.e. C:\Garmin\POIUpdates
2. Place your files in the folder you created in step 1.
a.) Only place .csv .gpx .mp3 and .bmp files in this directory.
b.) Make sure the file prefixes have are the same (case sensitive)
c.) i.e. Speed.csv or Speed.gpx, Speed.mp3, Speed.bmp
d.) Note .mp3 and .bmp are optional as they are sound and icon files.
