I have a Nuvi 200W and was wondering if I could drive somewhere without setting a destination or turn-by-turn directions but still have the voice alerts for the Speed Camera POI's that I have installed.

Many thanks

Don't see why not. Just turn it on and view the map on screen when the unit locks onto satelites. Will check my 765 unit today in same mode.
Never use it if I know where I am going as all the speed/traffic warnings are a pain when you already know them.

Thanks for your reply. Please let me know how you go on with yours.

I have tried what you suggested previously but didn't seem to get the voice alerts but do get them if I set a destination in first !!

There are many times when I know how to get to somewhere but don't know the speed camera locations and it's a pain having to put turn by turn directions just to get speed warnings.

My Nuvi 660 will give camera alerts with Show Map turned on without navigation.

Thanks for the info

I'll give mine another go - if it doesn't work I'll try reloading the POIs.

If I set a destination with directions I definitely get the alerts so I'll retry.

I'm now beginning to doubt myself !!

Will retry again next few days & see what happens. Will report back.

Many thanks for the replies.

Alex, don't get too bothered about it, as some models have different features that others do not utilize.
Decided to keep my 765t after reading about some of it's features being deleted on later models.

The Zumo 660 alerts you when a speed camera site is nearby - with no need to be navigating.
