POI audio files

I have been told there is a POI loader that allows the attaching of audio files to POI categories when downloaded; does anyone know the actual POI loader that allows this and is it simply using an MP3 file with the same POI category name.

    It is just the standard Garmin POI Loader program. Most newer Garmin automotive devices use .WAV files instead of .MP3. If you run POI Loader on a Windows machine there is a special sound utility program (SOX.exe) you need to enable the .WAV files. There are some excellent FAQ's over on the POI Factory forum that explain how this works.
  • So simple I just loaded a WAV file and bingo it worked first time, it seems I was just trying to complicate things in trying to set up a prompted tour and omitted the MP3 vs WAV format.

    Now is there a good source of poi audio WAV files.

    There are a bunch of POI .WAV files available on the POI Factory forum.
