willgold, You do not say what format your 'voice' is in. I find mine must be mp3

Good Luck & Happy New Year

Yeah, I have tried both Wav and mp3, and neither worked.
Can I just confirm - are you using POI Loader to update your Garmin? And, do you just stick the Audio files in the same folder as the CSV files?

ALL files have to go into the same folder that you use POI Loader to upload from. It does all the conversionas and sends them all in ONE file called POI.gpi

The 255 does not have ability to play mp3 for alerts.You have to use wav files instead.You will need to install sox.exe on your computer in the same loaction poiloader is located.Here is how you do it:
