I have used POI loader to transfer my data file onto my SD card. The unit finds the file and offers to "install this data so that it is available if the card is removed." I take this to mean I can use the data from the SD card directly.

Is this so & if so how do I activate the POI`s ?

thanks in advance
Tony

Tony, Welcome to the forum, You can either load the POI to the device using POI Loader, or load to the SD card. With the data loaded to the SD card you get the chance to copy the data to the device, or simply answer No when asked this leaves the POI data on the SD card.

To check the POI are actually activated tap the spanner (top RH) scroll down and select "Proximity Points" and make sure the Alerts option is set to box ticked for the Custom POI's (it should be by default).

To check the POI's are on the device go to the main start screen and tap "Where To?" then "My Locations" and "Custom POIs" all the speed camera categories will apear in the list, to see the cameras tap one of the categories. - Mike
