No problems for me with installing POIEdit. I had the same issues with proxy settings not being detected but returned to this site and got some info on what to change in IE so it would work.

The only problem I've had since install was POIEdit de-installing itself for some reason. Switching on one day I found it was no longer on my system, very strange! Installed it again and no problems since.

I got to work once but now it's back to the old "Please check your Internet Explorer proxy setting" error message again.

Home PC setup - Win 2K, ZoneAlarm Pro firewall turned OFF, Netgear Router/Hub.

I've tried all the settings in POIEdit for manual and use IE settings against IE's use automatic and entering a proxy server address and still it comes up with the same "proxy settings" error.

I've looked through this thread and some have said "just tick use manual setting in POIEdit" or "untick use automatic setting in IE" but still i can't get it to work. Obviously i'm missing something but i'm bu**ered if i can see it.

Del.

You need to untick the automatic IE settings in TOOLS | INTERNET CONNECTIONS | LAN SETTINGS and also any Proxy server you may have setup here. THen set POI Edit to use IE settings and it will work a dream.

I'm running it behind a NetGear DG824M and ZoneAlarm Pro.

No i've tried all this - at this moment nothing is checked in IE settings in TOOLS | INTERNET CONNECTIONS | LAN SETTINGS but just to make sure i tried again but still the same error message.

I've uninstalled and re-installed POIEdit but no change.

I'm OK about using a proxy server setting in IE settings in TOOLS | INTERNET CONNECTIONS | LAN SETTINGS but this doesn't let POIEdit work either.

Gutted of Guildford ;o)

If everything is disabled in IE under Lan Settings, AND POIEdit is setup to use IE Settings, then you either still have a Proxy client installed (Like MS Proxy Client or ISA Client), or your ISP is blocking DNS requests from SOCKS based applications. This can happen if you're using a firewall client to block applications talking in/out of your PC/network like ZoneAlarm, BlackIce, WinXP Firewall, Norton PC/Internet Security.

I'm also getting the same issues with not being able to download the POI's Crying or Very sad
I've followed the instructions to the letter and still continue to get proxy errors. Evil or Very Mad

Using Freeserve as the ISP over dial up and running XP home

Is there no other way to access these POI's??? looks like a number of members are having these problems.

Any one out there that could look into this and provide some additional help.....

In anticipation

Colin, buy a Netgear router rather than PROXYING, you won't have any issues then!

John, you can download them manually and extract and copy them across to your Pocket PC. I suspect FreeServe are proxying a connection and causing problems that way with programs that require Socks access. Download all of the POI's on our TomTom POI page which is also listed as Points Of Interest on the left hand navigation menu.

POI-Sync may not work for everyone, for people who have a direct connection, with no proxy servers, and no firewalls (or firewalls with the correct open ports for Socks) then POI-Sync will work well, but for those who have a more complicated setup, you may need to download them manually.

Dave....Thanks for the alternative method for downloading POI's, it worked like a dream Thumbs Up a little long winded but hey it works!!!

Maybe this method could be documented as an alternative for those who can't access through the POI editor.

Many thanks again for the fast response....great site....grest community for your every day GPS issues
