I have a 2017 VW Passat which is fitted with Discovery Media (Generation 2). Data is supplied and updated via an SD card. I have been trying to download the speed camera file and then add this to the POIs that already exist in the inbuilt GPS system. Can anyone tell me which SatNav system I select on the drop down menu and what file format I need in order for the built in equipment to read the data from the SD card? Many thanks in anticipation. Martin

Does this VW system allow POI's with proximity warnings ?

Most inbuilt systems only support POI's as navigation points.

There are issues but you may find this article helpful despite being a Seat site - same bits. It tells you how to install the cameras from here onto VAG satnavs

I used the "Garmin POILoader [UK - Consolidated By Type (Gatso,Mobile,etc) | pMobiles: Yes | French: No | Swiss: No ]"
The cameras are downloaded OK, but you cannot get sound warnings.
