Hi
What is the best way to get a speed camera database with audible sounds on my volvo 70 2013reg sensus nav system ?

I can download the speed zoned database but how do I "convert them" into *.gpx frmat and how do I install them together with the sound files.

I know I have to use a fat32 formatted usb stick and go to "add POI" on the volvo system somehow.....

Can anyone enlighten me please - or even better does anyone already have a working speedcam database converted to gpx format that they can email me??

It is against forum rules to email a database to anyone, this is because of the security markers.

There are some GPX format databases available for download.

What is the underlying SatNav structure ? GPX often indicates Garmin.

Hi
I believe that the SatNav structure is a Nav-Tech product. I have already installed the speedcam / mobile / traffic light camera database with audible sounds from speedcamupdates.com but the camera locations and mobile sites are way out of date.

Do I just download the pgpsw camera database and convert it to *.gpx format using a batch tool ? If so how do I gat the audio files in the correct format ??

Can you read the speedcamupdates GPX file in Notepad?

If so you may be able to do a side by side comparison and see what's different.

@ Kremmen. Does the standard Garmin .GPX file have voices? If not, how about using GPI converter and POILoader to prepare a Garmin type GPX file with just a couple or three cams in it around tim's location as a quick test to see if it works on tim's system?

No, POILoader matches CSV or GPX to BMP and WAV (with SOX)

I'd be interested to see the GPX file that works.

I wonder if the SpeedCam data still needs POIloader

I can read the gpx database from speedcamupdates in notepad. They have been configured from "www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1" and published by "http://www.w3.org/XMLSchema-instance"
The individual gpx files look editable

There is an online poi converter from ov2 / csk / *** / files to gpx

Shal I just download the consolidated file from pocketgps and convert them online ?? If so how will the existing camera.bmp files work ??

Anyone tried this??

I don't want to brick my Volvo sensus satnav system.....

Firstly, have you actually got any third party POIs working in any shape or form on your device? If so, how are you getting them onto it?
I assume that you are now a fully paid up member here with access to the PGPSW data?
It's difficult to advise without actually having access to your type of device.

If they are in GPX format then download the GPX set from here and compare.

GPX is just another form of XML with different tags.
