As for your first question, I download Speed Trap POI and TrafficCam POI (New Series) - Updated 29th August 2009 from the Community POIs. Both wav format..
I've even tried doing it a few time but still no warning sound?? I wonder why :-k ? :( Though it's not very important but it's good to have some kind of warning when approaching these POIs... hehe.. Pls help... thank you
What you have described seems to be the correct procedure.

Did the GPS prompt you to agree to copy the POIs into the main memory so they are still available when you are not using the SD card? If so, you should answer YES.

Since you have done everything right, only thing left to try is to do a hard reset and delete all User Data. You have to back-up your Favorites first of course.

BTW, what is your Firmware version?
Thanks for the quick reply....
Nope... my Nuvi 2565 didn't prompt me to copy the POIs. Maybe I'll do that.. a hard reset... [-o<
Oh... Btw, my software version is 4.80 and GPS Firmware is 2.00

Hi Bro Stormsilver,

Sorry to hear that.

Since your procedure is correct, there is nothing more I can tell you without actually seeing your device. If you are in Penang I can help but if you are elsewhere, it may be useful for you to state in your profile where you are so an experienced brother can take a look and determine whether a hospital stay for your device is necessary.

Hi Bro Jasonlee,

Thanks for the offer but I'm in Singapore. Anyway, tell you something even more weird... the "Deng Deng" & warning sound can be heard when I turned on the GPS simulator but for normal use on the road, no sound... do you think anyone has this experience??

Hi Bro Stormsilver,

This is weird indeed. If the GPS behaves differently when doing simulation than when navigating under satellite lock, I would suspect there is no user remedy and will take it back to the distributor straightaway.

No, I have not heard anyone having the same experience but only people who complained about not being able to switch off the "Deng deng" alert. As for me, I love it because it helps me to maintain my driving record clean of not getting any tickets from the Malaysian traffic police after more than 45 years of driving.

Hi Bro Jasonlee,

Just wanted to tell you that after a few more "Restore" and "Hard Reset" on my Nuvi over the weekend, everything is working fine now.... :thumbsup: thank you.
Btw, 45 yrs of clean driving record is something to cheer about.... :cheers: :good:

Hi Bro Stormsilver,

I am happy to hear that your problem is solved. :good:
It's been a long time since my last post.... just something funny that I wanted to share with you guys about all my problems of not getting the speed warning voice while using the GPS..

After all these happenings, there's actually nothing wrong with the files installation or my Nuvi unit :lol:
Reasons why I don't get warning voices while using the GPS and I get it while it's under simulation mode is because...
in simulation mode, the speed is always above 100-200 km/h....

While my daily route to office is always jam or slow in traffic, I can hardly hit above 80kmh or even 70 sometime. That explain why there's no speed warning coming from my device... :lol: Those days where I got to hear the warnings are the days when the traffic is smooth or I'm going above or near the speed limit..... hahaha...

In summary... unlike TrafficCam, SpeedCam will only sounds when you reach a certain speed... :drive: what a joke I played on myself... resetting and hard resetting... :lol:

Upon booting up, you may be asked if you wish to have the POIs copied into your GPS so that the data will still be available if you remove your SD card, it is up to you to decide what to answer. Whether you answer yes or no, the custom POI should work.
Does anyone know how to track back if say one now wants to store the POIs in the GPS rather than keep them in the card if I had previously answered No?

Tracking back may not be possible but you still can connect your device to your PC to transfer or copy the POI folder to you main memory. Just access the hidden system folder to store it there.
