ok, I think I made a mistake..............the way I navigated to the POI file. I have redone the way I save them and redid the POIs to my unit. Let me run a test tomorrow when I go to work.

Hope this is it!!!!

Ok, I made some progress......I originally did not navigate to the proper "EXPORT" on my PC. I got it right and they were/are there.

So I saw them, small and no info. I am assuming I can make them better/bigger so when I come across them they are easier to see. Currently, there was just a message at the top of mu unit that said "waypoint name" up ahead.

How do I make them bigger/better?

You can use custom POI icons that you load thrrough POI Loader along with the POI file. You can also use custom audio alerts. I would suggest you visit POI Factory http://www.poi-factory.com/ register, and go to the learning section to learn how to create and use custom POI icons and audio alerts. Start out by learning how to download, save, rename and load one or more of the icons available on POI Factory. Then you could learn how to create or edit icons.
