Hi guys

I uploaded some poi's and followed paradox instructions.
I must have missed someting as i no longer get proximity alerts.

I can see everything in the extra/custom poi/altogether? where the poi's are listed, the direction and distance but no proximity alert

Crying or Very sad Paul

Paradox instructions are I believe slightly flawed, he says:-

All your downloaded files MUST be in the same directory,
i.e. C:\Garmin\POI or in sub directories under POI.
C:\Garmin\POI\Safety
C:\Garmin\POI\Tourist_Locations
C:\Garmin\POI\Shopping
C:\Garmin\POI\Restaurants
..................etc etc
When you use the POI Loader, it loads everything into a single file called POI.GPI


From my experience (limited as yet) it only works properly if you have all your POI's in the one folder (directory) NOT in separate sub-folders.

My suggestion is to move all your POI's together, all in the same folder and then run POI Loader and fist wipe all your existing POI from your Nuvi, then re-run the loader and reinstall all POI together.

That's what I did and it's working fine.
Very Happy
