    Does anyone know a tutorial for Extra_POI_Editor?
    I'm not getting any success with this program. The program promises to save a "POI" file (.gpx and .gpi) directional. The (.gpi) file is ready to paste to the GPS or SD card, however I am not getting a .gpi file with wav sound.
    Could someone tell me why?
    Thank you.

    I would recommend you use the free to download Garmin POI Loader program to generate the *.GPI file, if you place *.WAV files in the same folder as the *.CSV files when running the Garmin POI loader they will be inserted into the generated *.GPI file

    There are some notes on loading POIs onto Garmin devices here :-

    Nuvi-Nebie, obrigado pela sua atenção.
    Vou explicar melhor: usando o MapSource + PoiLoader. Posso configurar um POI com o som wav normalmente. O problema é que, se este POI estiver localizado em uma rodovia dupla, provavelmente irá assinalar um alerta "falso" se você estiver passando na outra via na direção oposta. Eu também sei que você pode "mover" este POI 25m da sua localização para evitar esse problema. ESTÁ BEM.
    Usando o Extra_POI_Editor, você pode configurar um POI em um "direcional"
    Mas estou tendo problemas para concluir este aplicativo.
    Obrigado.

    Nuvi-Nebie, thank you for your attention.
    I'll explain better: using MapSource + PoiLoader. I can set up a POI with wav sound normally. The problem is that if this POI is located on a dual highway, it will probably signal a "false" alert if you are passing the other route in the opposite direction. I also know that you can "move" this 25m POI from your location to avoid this problem. IT'S OK.
    Using the Extra_POI_Editor, you can set up a POI in a "directional"
    But I'm having trouble completing this app.
    Thank You

    Have you tested that this "directional" option in Extra_POI_Editor works on a Garmin Satnav so that it only alerts the user to POIs in the correct diection and not a "false" alert if you are passing the other route in the opposite direction?

    Meu GPS é um Nuvi 50LM, fiz uma simulação com POI usando MapSource + PoiLoader (sucesso) e também usando Extra_POI_Editor, nesse caso não houve reprodução de som wav.
    Obrigado.

    O.K., but does the "directional" option in Extra_POI_Editor work on a Garmin?

    O Nuvi 50 é um dispositivo de baixa resolução e não tenho certeza se os dispositivos de baixa resolução não são capazes de reproduzir um POI configurado com Extra_POI_Editor.
    Obrigado.

    The Nuvi 50 is a low resolution device and I'm not sure if the low resolution devices are not able to play a POI configured with Extra_POI_Editor.
    Thank you
