Hi,

I'm new to the scene and need help. I have downloaded all csv files concerning fixed and speed cameras available from this site onto my Nuvi 1490T. I have saved them in the POI section. But when I switch it on, nothing shows up regarding the downloaded data and also despite the downloads, fixed and speed cameras still won't show up as icons as I approach them. Moreover, no warning beeps are given out. Can anyone help? Have I messed up?

Regards.

Did you load the POI's onto your computer then use the POI LOADER on you computer to upload your selected POI's to your Garmin, as explained here:

Where can I download speedcamera and redlight camera updates for my Garmin for free?

If necessary I guess I could register to this site.
But, how good are the POI you download from here?
Shows what the correct speed is for the camera?
Beeps if you go over the limit?

Thank you very much
Andrew


It is my experience that this site suits a basic purpose in downloading speed camera locations. I have a Garmin Nuvi 310 and cannot normally get overspeed warnings but the camera locations are spot on and a visual indication of the camera speed is displayed close to the camera site.

You are providing the best & simplest way to get the POI's to the Garmin. Simply create a "new" folder on the desktop (I name mine Data-Team xx-xx-2011). Then go to the POI section to check for the updates you want and save them to the new folder you just created on the desktop.

Then just use Garmin's POI loader & when you get to the step where you can choose files or folders (I believe this is step 3) find the folder you just created on the desktop. Only click the new folder ONCE to highlight it and then it will load to the Garmin. When it's completed the computer will show how many new POI's were updated.

I had trouble when I was 1st doing this cause I double clicked the folder I wanted to use, the "new folder", but it wouldn't do anything Rolling Eyes I called Garmin and they said to only click the folder once. Now it's real simple to do.

Hi,
imo the extra vehicles available are good ... and there's extra voices too - WOW!

noob question, the "members only" poi zone access and the free version mentioned in this post, when i follow the link for the free one (when not logged in to the forum) it seems the same as the member only ... unless i'm going to the wrong place for the [UK] memb only.
clearly i'm missing something or doing something wrong.

You won't be able to download the members only files unless registered, only the free files.

Using mine in Australia- they work well!
One quirk I have found is that the pois I have saved for the US for a future holiday filled up my favorites. I don't understand why the pois ended up in there. I have a Nuvi 1690.

Thanks

I've always found them incredibly helpful - esp as I travel a lot and I'm often looking for locations I have no idea of where they are.

This site is the best thing since sliced bread. Locations are very accurate and updated frequently. Saved my bacon on numerous times.
