1) You'll need Garmin's POILoader

Are these camera files with sound or simple standalone POI's ?

While you may need POI loader it depends what the files are. If they are already .gpi files they should simply be placed in the POI folder on your nuvi.

Otherwise as Kremmen says you'll need POI Loader http://www.garmin.com/us/maps/poiloader

For the CSV camera files from here you will need to get the SOX.Exe to activate the sound warnings.

If you search here using sox you will find references and instructions to the correct version to download and where to download it to.

It all sounds daunting but once setup it's a breeze from then on.

Also, have a look at the CSV to GPX converters as they offer more control over how Garmin handles the camera warnings.
