I've also found WAV's work best on my 255W.

It'd be interesting to have a list of format is supported by which model.

While it encourages research some handy lists to help noobs determine which files they require would be handy Crying or Very sad

The WAV files will work on nearly all models, even the ones that can use MP3's.

The newer models from the Nuvi 1200 and Nuvi 1300 range support mp3 audio alerts.

I find it is better to just grab the WAV files if you have a choice.
As previously mentioned they are the file format of choice and will work on virtually all units.

Hy
Can you tell me how you made? Where you must put the file to work? In which directory on Garmin GPS?
I have a Garmin nuvi 260 and I don't know how can I do this.

Thank you

Hello,
All you need to do is name the wav or mp3 file the same as the POI file. Its that easy. When you upload your POI file with POI Loader just make sure they are in the same directory.

I tried the MP3 format on my Garmin 255W and it does not work. Probably I will try the WAVE file to see whether it solve the problem.

I use the 1460 and it works well with wav files. I believe 14xx series work with wav files and not mp3s.
