Activating POI Overlays to Display them on the Map

 
The POI Warner enables your navigation system system to display overlays on the map. The overlays that are to be displayed have to be selected in Step 2. All selected overlays will then be displayed on the map.

Please follow these steps to display POI overlays on the map:


Make sure that your POI-Warner has been successfully registered before continuing.

 

Download the desired overlays with the online synchronisation (you need to register at  www.poihander.com first to access POI for the whole of Europe, except Germany, Austria and Switzerland - these are available from  www.pocketnavigation.de).

 

 

Open the POI Overlay Settings via the menu POI Manager > POI > Overlay settings and use the + / - button to switch to the next window.

<br><br>

Now select the overlay catergories you wish to display by activating the appropriate check boxes*. Close the dialog by clicking on OK.

<br><br>

The overlays selected to be displayed on the map will now appear on the list of activated POI:

 

<br><br>

(*) If no overlays are displayed in the list, please make sure that the overlay files (*.bmp and*.bak files or just *.bmp files) have been copied into the POI-Warner "pois" subdirectory (the online synchronisation and the speed cam installer do this automatically).
