Hello,

These are Traffic AD Pop Ups, if you would no longer wanna receive the pop up you will have to disable your traffic feature. To do this go to Tools > Settings > Traffic > From here de select "Enable Traffic" this will stop the ads aswell as turn off your traffic updates.

Hope this helps!

When i turn the power on it just keeps flashing Garmin.


You can try three things to try and get the Nuvi to start normally:

1) soft reset: Press the power-on button for at least 20 seconds - starting from power off. It should restart.

2) master reset: This will revert to factory defaults erasing all POI's, Favourites, Tracks, Routes etc. From power-off hold the lower right corner for at least 20 seconds while pressing the power-on button once. A question should appear to erase all user data. Press yes and it will revert to factory defaults.

3) Connect a USB cable in power off. Connect it to a PC / Mac which is also powered down. Start the PC/MAC - the Garmin Nuvi should start in communication mode. Connect to the internet and load MyGarmin.com and try to update the software version to the latest one (if available). If necessary install the Garmin communication plug-in in the webbrowser.

Garmin POI, GPI, GPX, GDB and CSV and how not to be confused


GPX or CSV file can be converted to the proprietary Garmin format GPI format (Garmin Points of Interest) format using the Garmin POI loader v2.54 OR use the one bundled with the Garmin Map Source v6.15.11 at the time of posting if there is also a BMP file of the same filename then this will be added to the Waypoints Symbol.
If you put all your POI that you want to be added to the Garmin POI then place all them in the same folder prior to starting the POI Loader and they will be placed into sub-menus otherwise it will select the single file entries only.

However the Garmin Mapsource can't open this GPI format it is specifically for the SATNAV Device only open GDB, MPS, GPX and LOC files can be opened as standard. There are two ways that I know of that will convert this GPI back into CSV or the POI format if required you might like to open the POI content in the Map Source program.

First this can be done using GPI2GPS it does however cost 15 EUROs or its older brother GPSConvertor for an extra 20 EUROs will convert to all formats for all makes of device including Tom-Tom, Garmin and many others.

Secondly you can convert POI file in CSV format directly to GPX (exchange format) using the excellent GPXtoPOI Convertor v1.1.8 then import directly into the Map Source if you also want to use BMP that has been downloaded in Map Source you can replace the 8 default custom waypoint symbols located on your computer with your own or from the Tescos.ZIP file in this example that contains the CSV and BMP.

64e9e53.jpg

You can open these symbols with a graphic editor and use them as templates for creating your own symbols.You can add up to 64 custom waypoint symbols. These symbols must be in .bmp format and must be named numerically from "000.bmp" to "063.bmp." Custom waypoint symbols can be 16 x 16 pixels (small) or 24 x 24 pixels (large) and up to 32-bit color

Also check out my other POI tip HERE for help on how to create your own BMP's for use with your Garmin using Adobe Photoshop

It will also convert any GPX format into CSV format for use with the POI loader using the other button on the menu maybe this program would be best called GPXtoCSV instead to avoid confusion

.
And this one I saved for last If you want to transfer images from the Garmin use xImage and have your Garmi SATNAV connected.

For a full list of all POI sources then visit the Gamin POI Source another great website full of loads of useful tools is www.freegeographytools.com

If you are unable to use xImage it means that you unit is not compatible for example the Nuvi 250 will not be found and you may see this window

What are POI and how best can I use them on my Garmin SatNav?


Points of Interest (POI) when used on SatNav can be loaded using the Garmin POI loader bundled with MapSource. They are not limited to 500 like the favourites option and you can also create sub-menus with the name of the specific CSV by placing the many in the same folder

If you want to create a POI file from you existing Garmin Database (GDB) save it as a GPS eXchange Format (GPX) which is an XML schema and these can also be added along with the excel CSV format files and if you create an indexed BMP of the same name and you can use transparent pictures instead of the default black spot.

If you use one the PNG custom symbols you must first convert it to RGB format then you must use the background color that the Garmin Routes use that is HEX #FF00FF (RGB 255,0,255)

bc09fa0.jpg

and you must save the BMP as INDEXED do not force the colours save as Windows 8 bit of you use CMYK, RGB or Lab Colour it wont work !!

The easiest way to do this is to use Adobe Photoshop but I am sure there are other ways.

My garmin nuva 1300 takes a really long time to load points of interest that i search for. For example, I typed in "Ocean City" to determine how to get to the beach, but it took a good ten...


I have a Garmin Dezl - which gets slower with less available memory. I can simulate slow behavior by planning a very long route - reducing available memory to the extreme. Unfortunately the Nuvi & Dezl (based on the Nuvi) doesn't have a function to clear up memory space.

In my situation I had to master reset the Garmin to get memory back. This clears all user data (including all POI's, favourites) and restores the factory state. A master reset works by holding the right bottom corner of the screen while pressing the power on button once.

How do I delete my favorites?


To delete all favourites:
With the satnav turned off press the bottom right corner of the screen with your finger and while pressing it turn it on.
Keep your finger pressing until a pop up message appears
Press yes and all user data will be erased. This will reset all original settings.
If you only want to delete some favourites:
Press Where to, press Favourites, select one to delete, press Edit, and press Delete.
This way you can delete them one at a time.

How do I clear out old address locations on the tomtom ONE from start to finish I have 2 adresses in there that is NO LONGER needed


It depends on if you have them set as favourites, POI (Points of Interest) or recent locations?

If Favourites or POI, just go into the menu/settings, and delete from there, if recent detination, do a soft reset. If that fails, do a hard reset

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. 

Cheers

POI menu with custom POI does not appear anywhere on the C330?


You need to use Garmin POI loader to input custom POI. After loading POI's they will show up in "My Favorite" under "Custom POI"
