    I converted the file using poiedit 2007, that worked, but

    the BMP for rest stop didn't show up, I put that in the map folder , is that where it goes?

    Rest Areas

    I hunted around, added a few things, removed Costco and Flying J as they are mostly gas station chains. There are over 3900 rest areas, info areas, travel centers etc.I didn't want to take over someone elses thread as I did this for my use and just thought somebody else could use it, so I called it Interstate_Rest_Areas.

    Without your post I would have never come across this thread although there was another one about three months ago.

    Gurus, I seem to have rad that one can only get sound alerts for personal POI categories.
    If that is so how do I change this from a supplied to a personal POI.
    (I have explained elsewhere how to merge a personal POI category in Tyre with a TT supplied one but not the other way around.)

    Now, once that is achieved, does anyone have the .wav file for a flushing toilet?
    I want to surprise SWMBO on our next road trip.
    Cheers,

    I don't know if this is going to help you at all or has any relevance. (It's from the Brit forum regarding merging custom poi's with some in the poi.dat file):
    http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modul...rt=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=merge

    You may, just may, be able to apply a custom sound to the resulting .ov2 file created.

    Also, I remember something about creating a custom .ogg file that goes in the sounds folder with a prefix exactly named like the .ov2 and .bmp files (or did it go in the map folder, too??):confused: :confused:

    Andy's post is interesting as one possibly may mix and match.

    I previously mentioned that in Tyre one could open a personal POI category, mark all and copy (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C) open a TomTom POI, go to the end and paste (Ctrl+V) and save the POI.

    Thanks, I am saving this for now and shall try it one day!

    Thanks, that is exactly the sound I wanted. Had tried quite a few on the internet yesterday but they were all crap (pun intended).

    I will try to apply it for the Rest Area POIs.
    Once I get around to it I will give a feed back.
