I installed some POI's and loaded them up on my 660. As I set up some gas stations, I changed the alert distance to 11,000 feet so it would tell me if there was a station wintin a couple of miles while traveling the interstate. I only installed the GPX file, nothing else

I found that they work sometimes and sometimes not.

I drove from Michigan to Kentucky and in Norther Ohio, an alert went off for Loves truck stop. none of the speedways and such gave me an alert.

as I got near my home, I went by another Loves and it did not alert me. I checked to see if that location was in the POI and it was.

Today, I drove right by several Speedway's and only one on my trip gave me an alert.

anyone got any idea's why they work sometimes and other times they do not?

Do you have the alerts turned on in the unit?

Yes, I have them turned on.
I made another road trip yesterday and got a couple of alerts but not near as many as I should have.

I actually pulled into the parking lot of one that should have given me an alert and it never went off but others did later.

it is a mystery to me Smile

I think it may be due to the alerts not all having the same amount of information for each alert, as I have noticed the same thing on rare occasions.
You could find out by editing the file and check one alert against another.
