How often do people update the accident black spot data on their GPS devices.
Is this data that changes very frequently?

Update the information whenever it has additional data added.

Hi Thanks for the tip, I will make sure that I keep an eye on the POI Files to see when they have been updated and then I can update the accident black spots when there is some new data.

Thanks

I am not really clear when new updates are available. I always see at the top of the screen POI database update xx hours xx minutes ago. Don't know exactly what that means. For instance if I wanted to keep up to date with the latest red light cameras where would I look for these updates?

The time info relates to the POI database worldwide, so updates can be anywhere in the world.
All POI files are listed POI files or Free POI files, click either, and hooray, there is a menu for you to choose from..

I like seeing when there is an updated file but they only appear if been updated since last log-on would like to see on poi files or folders when an update happened eg a date or something in case I miss update when logging in.. so next time I can see eg updated 8-12-2013 on a poi file

You can hit the Notify button to get an email when the file gets updated. I like it.

It's a good practice to update every 3-4 month, from my experience.

There are hundreds of POI updates in a 3 to 4 month period and you will be out of date with a lot of information.
Check at least weekly if not checking every time you log on..
