Several years ago I wrote my own application for speed camera warnings using this database for the camera locations. This uses the CSV data file. It has long puzzled me why you chose to bundle the number of the camera with its type rather than giving it its own column in the database. Now you have also bundled the direction with the camera type in the same data column. Whilst it's not hard to decode this, it does seem to me that it is strange not to separate all the data fields with commas.

mosts devices require a specific csv format for speed cameras and other pois. garmin needs: lon,lat,name,details others need to have 3 columns only. hence the type, id, speed and now direction are in a single column.
