    Thanks Stratz

    Have to say I'm a bit confused. Before I have only had the .fbl map files and the poi files. Those have always been fine to get me from a to b using the 'fast' route. I have also only used the standard speedcam folder. I don't remember having the .fda and .hnr files before and I don't have them in my Primo folder anywhere. Are the .fda files different to the speedcam folder I have? And what does defined routes for .hnr files do that I don't already have (without them)?

    Many thanks

    Hi

    Just checking. If I use the new .fda files do I need to get rid of my existing 'speedcam' folder/files?

    Many thanks

    Re: .fda and .hnr files

    An interesting question !
    I think if one adds to the .fda file also the speedcam-folder, speedcams will be brought to your notice via both ways. This explains at least why I got two different alerts when approaching a speedcam: one from the fda-file and one from the speedcam-folder. The annoying thing is, both alerts are not the same because the speedcam definition from iGO 8.0 is different than the one from iGO 8.3 and is different again from iGO Primo 1.1 ! The fda-file I got does not use the speedcam definition from iGO Primo 1.1 which causes the two different kinds of alerts I get.
    I'd rather have my speedcam.txt frequently updated with the correct definitions and lose the other things that are in the (slightly outdated) .fda files.

    I have deleted the .fda files and kept the speedcam folder/files only as Primo was behaving strangely with the .fda files in as well. Out of interest does the speedcam folder/files update itself automatically if you travel to a new country?
