    Red face Garmin Speed and Red Light Cameras Australia POI

    This is the latest Speed and Red light cameras for Australia with voice alerts. It is compatible with garmin Nuvi and possibly others as well. Just copy to the POI folder in your unit after renaming or deleting existing one.

    Cheers

    Re: Garmin Speed and Red Light Cameras Australia POI

    How do I remove the voice alerts for red light cameras? In traffic I find it too annoying as the red light alert goes off every time you creep forward a few centimeters.

    Ideally I'd like the default DING for red light cameras and voice for speed cameras.

    Hi sucnip
    This file was created using POI Loader. If you want to customize the alerts you will have to extract the files attached and customize them to suit yourself. I have included the alert for speed cameras but you will have to create the alerts for the other categories i.e Red Light and Speed and red light. I created the alerts using Loquendo software.
    Cheers

    Have you check this POI file yourself
    as there is quite a few Points not for Australia when viewing in mapsouce mostly in the W, NW sections
    Going by a lot of the coordinates contained in the POI.GPI file there way off coarse for an aussie POI file

    Looking at the coordinates below there N and W , N and E, they should be S and E like the second picture
    the first picture is from your POI file

    You have added POI's from around the world into this file you titled "This is the latest Speed and Red light cameras for Australia"

    the bottom picture gives you more of an idea on what i mean

    Hi hulio
    Thanks for alerting me to that fact.
    Q. How do you view this file using Mapsource so I can check this before I upload next time?
    Thanks

    You need to Convert the poi.gpi to poi.gpx
    or poi.gdb
    gpsbabel can do this if you need a conversion program

    I have posted your POI file in and GPX format so you see it in mapsource and i also included a fixed version GPX format of it as well
    And i have also added my POI files in GPI and GPX format so you can compare in mapsource if you wish to
