    WARNINGS my igo8 beeps and displays "0" speed limit/warning

    My few year old chinese model
    has a speed warning and a speed camera warning included.

    I have heard the speed warning go off and say
    "you are over the speed limit" and now I
    see on my local road the symbol "0" in a white circle
    with red outline and a continual 1 sec on/off beep.

    What is that?

    Thanks

    I will try it tomorrow.

    I would like to keep the speed warnings though
    but at least I can confirm it is an erroneous
    speed limit.

    There is a setting to change speed % notified.

    If the speed limit is part of the Map software,
    I am surprised that this problem would
    only be showing a few weeks ago and not
    2 years ago.

    Is it possible that the problem is related to speed cam
    and rf signals that the GPS is getting from a local farm?
    I have noticed that my old radar detector does go off
    along the same route.

    Ok
    I figured it out.
    Somehow I had set a speedcam icon
    on the road where the beeping
    was going off.

    Thanks
    Happy Thanksgiving
