Speed warnings are embedded into our map. Just update your Nuvi 1350 with our weekly releases map.

i uploaded the latest img file and replaced the older version in my SD card, there is also a JCV file, do I also add it in as I did not do so previously. Dont think my Garmin has the JCV feature though...

Hi,

I just bought Garmin 2565 and have been reading the thread but getting lost here.

1) What is POI?
2) Do I need to install POI? If yes, where can I download it?
3) Is it a installation or I just copy it into Garmin SD card?
4) How do I load the AES detector so that garmin can alert me when there's a AES near me?

POI means Point(s) Of Interest.

No you don't. Just save the map file (gmapsupp.img) into you nuvi. You can download HERE
cksze wrote: 3) Is it a installation or I just copy it into Garmin SD card?
Just copy and paste into SD Card/Garmin folder.

You can copy and paste the .gpi files into POI folder in your nuvi. You can download the AES file HERE.
