  • Not very clear about patching speedcams

    Sorry if its a silly questions but try to understand where I am coming from. Patching maps works with the meta key in the meta.txt file and the .meta file in the insert_meta_from_Map_here. For speedcams we have the meta.txt in the archive (first thread) but no .meta txt. How do we patch speedcams?
    Thanks

    Re: Not very clear about patching speedcams

    Figured it out. Just for others who may find it difficult to understand the process: Using the easytools keygen, instead of placing .meta into the insert_meta_from_Map_here folder, insert the .ov2 and .ver files of each premium speedcam (i.e. each country) making sure the meta key for them exist in the meta.txt file. Then runmefordct.cmd and patch as if its a map. The insert_meta_from_Map_here folder will now contain the .dct file for the speedcam/speedcams you have placed in there.
    Regards

        you put the ov ,the ver and the dct files in the map folder of your tomtomie for me it is UK &ROI 850 Map.Thats it then in future to update just copy and paste the new ov and ver files into the map folder you do not have to create a new dct file(only when you have put a new map on tomtom)
        Tomtom Go 520
        Navcore 8.351
        Uk & ROI Map 870

          You do not need the ver files really. I just include them so that you know that you are getting newer files. This file may help you decide which files you need depending on the map(s) you use too

            Can you use the .DCT file from the official ov2's downloaded from or included in your original map, or do you have to create a new one when using ov2's from this site ?

                Brilliant - thanks for the explanation. I've just managed to update the map on my TomTom XL v2 and couldn't work out how to patch the speed cameras upgrade... I followed your instructions and have managed to create the DCT files for my TomTom... thanks!
