I have downloaded the CSV to GPX programme. I have chosen the Speed Zone complete option together with voice pack. When I select the MP3 voice option I get a message stating that there is no equivalent voice for the speed cameras (Gatso etc) when I unzip the file . When I download the wav voices everything unzips inclding the wav voices. However when I use the POI loader I get an error message stating "unable to convert WAV to the proper format therefore audio file not loaded."
Any help would be appreciated.

To help PoiLoader convert the wav files, you need to put sox.exe in the same folder as where PoiLoader.exe resides (eg C:\Program Files\Garmin\Poi Loader).
To download sox.exe, search this site for sox.exe by author MaFt, which will give you a link.

Thank you. I had sox.exe in the wrong folder. Have now successfully loaded all into my Garmin.

P.S. any idea why the MP3 files did not load?

I think it just depends on the Garmin model you have.

Ones that have a built-in mp3 music player can also accept mp3 voice files. Ones that don't, need the .wav files.
