920T POI dialing problem

When I search for a POI and use the dialing feature, the number sent to my cell to dial adds "011+1+area code" as it it dialing a long distance number. All the POI's I am dialing are local. How can I set it up so it does not dial the extra numbers?

Re: 920T POI dialing problem

I was having the same problem with TTG910, however, I figure it out. When creating .ov2 files, make sure the format reads as follows:

-66.052647,18.411293,"Netxar Technologies > 7877650058"

-66.052647,18.411293,"Netxar Technologies > 17877650058"

You must leave a space after the description and add a greater sign, followed by the phone number, and include the "1" in front of it. If you don't it will dial "0117877650058" instead of "17877650058"

use the POI ( points of interest ) feature. select poi / category / pick a poi, ie. gas station / near city, enter city! that will get you in the city(zip) you want..if you dont know the city name, type the zip in google to locate it.

MY POI in Mio C220

The manual doesn't match the software :)

This has been driving me crazy too.

You can't do it from 'cockpit' view.
Press 'Menu -> Home -> Map -> Bottom right corner button (to show 'route to', 'add via'...) and the rightmost button is 'Add POI'.

To get back to cockpit view, press 'Menu -> Home -> Cockpit'.

Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader.
