    France / Swiss speedcams

    Here are the France and Swiss speedcams as per April 3. ( as POI's )

    These countries are not (no longer) provided by Tomtom.
    Note that if you upgraded to navcore 11.035 or 9.43, France speedcams are removed from your device.

    And if you get caught in France with them on your unit, your device will be removed from your vehicle.

    These are POI's. Not the usual TT speedcam files.
    Set them up on your system and name them 'MacDonalds' or something like that.
    Don't think the police will stop you and spend time analysing your thousands of POI's .......

    That's the best way.

    BTW, I loaded 9.43 (from 9.026) last evening - TTHome then offered me both France Premium and 'regular' downloads. Not tried them, but seen a rumour that 'hazardous' areas are permissable (a stretch of highway that may contain a safety camera). No idea of the length of the 'hazardous' setion.

    Change the icon to a flower. Name the POI "flowers" instead of "speedcamera". Done.

    In case the police stops you and checks your TT, you simply tell them that somebody thought it's worth to mark this place because of the extraordinary beautiful flowers. You can't remember who that person was, as you downloaded the POI somewhere from the internet, but you have forgotten the website.
    Coincidentally there is a speedcamera at the same place as the flowers, but that is not your fault as you did not know that this speedcamera was there in the first place.

    case closed.

    I'd change the icon to a stream/river - think crossword clues. Blame 'climate change' for it drying-up.

    Just for information :

    In France, the police has no legal possibility to control your Tomtom device, for your car is considered as a domicile and can't be searched without permission.

    Best regards from France

    Since Tomtom has diabled the speedcam function when driving in France (see TT website, one of the reasons for this mandatory update of the navcore), you have to rename your sepedcam pois to something else. Also you need to have the possibility to set up an audible alarm for the new type of pois. This is not possible with the iphone app.
    Hope, it is still possible with the other devices.
