I have a new VW Golf with Navigation and would like to know if I can add PocketGPS speed camera database to the SD card before I subscribe. If I can are detailed instructions available on this Forum and are there any major limitations eg will I be able to get voice alerts or just visual alerts?

Possibly. You need to know the make and model of the navigation system in your VW. Just because it may be branded as VW doesn't mean that it is. Hopefully you handbook, dealer, google, etc will help you to identify your navigation system.

Pior to subscribing, you can always test by downloading and installing a free POI in the appropriate format from the free POI section.

Again, once you have determined the make and model of the navigation system in your VW you can then check out forums (especially the VW ones) for help on file type for POI and also Icon as well as setting proximity alerts and sound files.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Thanks for the link. It seems it can be done and even voice alarts are possible on the standard 6.5in VW system. I'll follow up on this other forum.
