Hi,

New on the forums, but thought I'd contribute to this topic as I've purchased the database from the same e-Bay seller (via this forum)

Whilst I uploaded mine I took the chance to create a 'how to' doc, so thought I'd attach it here, just in case anyone needs a few pointers:

apologies for the images, it was pretty dark when I did it.

Cheers

I to purchased the Speed cam POI from the same e-bay seller.
I am very pleased with it and the installation went smoothly.

The only criticism of the POI file is that the "DING" warning happens very close to the camera.
Any one know if this distance can be altered???

Perhaps it could even be made to appear on the centre drivers display?

Maybe if you stop speeding, this won't be an issue! ;)

Daft question potentially, will this POI data include the cheeky M25 (the non variable overhead type) and M3 cameras?

But enquiring minds need to know :roll:
It cant be that hard, l would think the process would be similar to this
  • get file (probably gps format)
    convert to db3 file format
    rename to correct file name for system to recognise
    add to sd car in appropriate fold
    download in car

Hi,

The database looks to be the one from Pocket GPS World, which is a £20 per year subscription cost. The service that the guy from eBay is offering is worth the money to me... I searched and was never able to track down a 'free' POI database - well not one that I was prepared to download :D

Not quite a simple as dropping it in a folder on the SD card, here is the folder structure required for importing into the system:

Personally, I'm not liking the quality of the icons, so I'll probably clean them up in PhotoShop at some point.

Cheers
