I have tested this several times on GPS simulation mode. I point to an address that passes a speed camera (and I've set the notifications all to alert me when I get close them like 400m, I didn't do the go over x speed notification) and even though I pass the camera, no notifications are given.
Is this because it's in simulation mode?
The names are all identical.. that's how they are when you download them isn't it?
By the way, I'm using gpx files not csv.. could that be why?
I checked out a few files on this site (I have only downloaded one) and they appear to be the same, however, that does not necessarily apply to other sites. Letter case could be a problem. I don't have the speed camera file from this site, but I would be willing to see if I get the same result as you do if you will provide me the exact address you are using.
FWIW, to my knowledge, it doesn't matter whether it is a csv or gpx file. They all must have the same file names.
Check the coordinates for the site using Google Earth (camera). An address or coordinates can be off a considerable amount. I haven't seen an associated MP3 or WAV file for any particular POI file on this site, but I am looking. Have been a member for some time, but have been working on POI file creation and don't sign in too often.
Thanks for your help, but still no luck.. I'll try to give u some exact coordinates next time I hook up the gps
No need to "give" any coordinates... just make a small test file with points along your usual route (to test your unit). Return it if it doesn't work.
You can use our online POIEdit.
I just did this, made a custom POI and set alert to 500 m and it did notify me! However, the ones on the website haven't alerted me yet...
I read somewhere that the device looks at file name b4 looking at the distance specified and assumes that's the distance/speed limit to warn you? If that's the case should i rename the ones that mention the speed limit (like 100, 90, 50 etc)?
I want all of them to alert me in 500m, not if I go over a certain speed. If I manually enter 500m in each would it listen or is the alert embedded in the gpx file?
