    I did, but haven't yet crossed back so I haven't swapped out my current POI file. Is there a(n easy) way to keep my own custom POIs and still import the new border POIs? Current plan is just to rename files to activate one/deactivate the other...

    I can send you the .csv file and then you just import it via the Dock. It will add to your existing one.

    Thanks,

    On a TND720LM, Is it possible to disable the voice and keep the audio warnings? I truly dislike the voices (especially in french) but I like so far to hear for the different audio sound for warnings?

    Thanks

    In regards to the POI-Factory. These are non-RM support files. They may be extracted from Websites or build by other users on the site. Do be aware that sometimes you may get warnings that are adjacent to where you are at or sometimes the Lat/Long may be a little off when you get the warning.

    The format of the .csv file may not be in the RM format and importing it to the TND may show errors. Not all .csv files are build the same as in file structure(s).

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Is this a complete POI file for all the border crossings? If so I would be interested in having a copy as I mainly go into the US on my trips.

    Thanks

    I found a website that lists all the Border crossings. On this page was the Lat/Long, but this was usually in the middle of US/Canada stations. I then took that Lat/Long and zoomed in on each Border Crossing for commercial vehicles and got the Lat/Long of the lane for trucks.

    It is still in Beta and most of the sites are still being checked out for correct Lat/Long.

    PM me your E-Mail and I will send you the .csv files. I have one file build for the US and one for Canada. Use the Dock to import them into the TND.

    Then they will show up under Custom POI's. If in the US going to Canada, use the Canada file. You can add them as Via's on your existing trip.

    Thanks,
    Mark
