PGPSW obviously cannot buy every sat-nav model that comes out and certainly cannot buy every car that comes with a built-in unit!
So I'm afraid there has to be some detective work on your part. Assume no-one has ever seen your set-up.

The usual question we ask first is:

Does the user manual or the display mention adding "user POIs" or "third-party POIs" at all?
Being able to add those is the first key to being able to add the PGPSW camera locations.

Secondly, is there any mention of a proximity warning system for as you get near those POIs?
Obviously having the camera locations on the map is not very useful if you have to stare at the screen constantly to see if one is approaching.

Also, how does the Sat-nav update it's software or maps? Does it have an SD card slot? A USB connection?

Hi Guys



I downloaded the file from pocketgpsworld.com (19.99 for a years subscription) as a CSV file.

"Download Speed Camera Database 11.073 (17 Jul 13)" - icon on the right of this forum

I then used a free converter program GPXtoPOI

(Windows)
http://www.masterclass.com/gpxtopoi/gpxtopoidownload.html
(Mac)
http://www.hearsay.demon.co.uk/mac/MacGarminTools/


This program converted the downloaded file form CSV format to GPX format

Copy the GPX file to a USB stick and connect in the Evoque

then

From NAV menu, touch More..

Select Stored Locations

Touch My POI

Select Add

Then select the GPX file on the USB stick and it will download the file to the Nav system

You can then select Edit

and choose to pick a sound to play and an Icon

The chosen Icon is displayed on the map and the chosen sound is played on approach

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the post, pikacu.

So it looks like the Evoque requires GPX format.

Out of interest, rather than converting a CSV file to GPX, did you try the "OTHER - GPX" format download directly from this site? (It's further down the drop-down list of formats).

If you did try it, did it not work?

And if you didn't, give it a go and tell us whether the direct GPX download works or not Very Happy Supreme Angel

I recently got a Range Rover Evoque and the .gpx download works but, as far as I can see, the speed rated files have to be loaded individually which is impractical. You therefore have to load the single files and can only assign one of the three standard audio chimes to them (one of which sounds like an ice cream van). So, no voice alert and no speed limit notification on screen. Not a patch on my old Garmin Nuvi. Annoying because the GPS system is integrated with the audio system so you'd think that there would be a way to get .mp3 files working! I'll keep looking but if anyone finds a practical way to get the voice alerts and speed rated files working please tell us.

It seems ridiculous that most manufacturers have taken the stance that they're not supporting user poi, especially when considering what they charge for their built in Sat Nav

I am sorry to bother you...But I tried to follow your excellent instruction but as I am very new to this...I seem to have got lost. HELP!!!
I just (today) paid the 19.99...and although I downloaded the CSV file...I then got stuck not knowing which bit of this file needed converting. I went to the Windows free converter you said..... but my Virus protection wouldnt let me. (ESET Smart Security)...So went into that and disabled protection..(I have enabled afterwards) and it did let me Download....but ...now I am so confused. I know...What an idiot we have here...But, I really need a step by step guide (I know that you already did this...But I cant get as far as the Putting it on a USB Stick) Do you have any thoughts??? well..printable thoughts..Laughing Out Loud I will wait a while for your answer before going on different routes. Thanks ..Tony

Hi,
I too would be interested to know which files need to be converted.
Although I am computer literate to an extent this is all new to me yet I have found the advice most useful.
However the link to the converters does not work and return an error 404.
Can someone help here please? Is there an alternative site available?

Hi Stewie and welcome to the PGPSW forums. I can't help directly, but there is a bunch of stuff on converting files here.

Hi,
I too have an Evoque. I did download the individual speed camera files and it did not take too long to download.
I soon got fed up with the standard chimes so as a compromise turned them off and put the excellent CamerAlert ap on my Iphone, its the best compromise I have found at the moment.
