That's the camera speed setting

if its the distance the limlit of distance i can set a poi warning is 100
There is a minimum distance you can set, but I would assume you wouldn't want to know about a camera at only 100 yards. It could be very hard work on the brakes.

Have a look at this Topic -

The idea is that you match each voice alert with the Gatsos of the same speed, i.e. (assuming you have lownloaded the speed-zoned set of camera files) you select the "pocketgps_uk_gatso_30" POI category and you assign the "Warning, Gatso 30" (or whatever it says) to it.
The two complications are that:
1 ) Unless you use Ray Flanagan's Extended Warning add-on (in which case you have more possible warnings and sensible names), you will have to work out which of the alerts are called which "noise", "boing", "polite" etc.

2 ) Unfortunately there aren't enough voice warnings for all the speeds, so you will have to make your own descision which one to use for each.

As a point to the PocketGPSW team, I'm sure a whole lot of people would love to know why on Earth there is no Gatso 70 warning, and why you waste a precious "slot" with a copyright message that no-one will ever use or even listen to?

You make a good point gazza...

In the drop-down box labelled "Satnav system there is an entry called "tomTom OV2" - that is the one you want.

The "OV2" refers to the file format that TomTom uses for its Point of Interest files.

If anyone from PGPSW is listening, it really shouldn't say "OV2" in that menu, because that isn't the name of any TomTom unit! It has now confused at least one customer... Wink

Please have a read through THIS as it explains the installation/ configuration of the database for your device, if you have any problems please come back with a question, as it would appear you have been reading the POICapture guidelines rather than the camera installation ones - Mike

Not sure what you mean by "New Camera POI Files". There is no "update download" available, all cameras have to be downloaded again.

Please read this guide which gives you details of how to load the POIs onto your device. This will tell you which download is which. The download is available here.
Once you've digested those & downloaded the files, let us know if you have any specific questions/problems.

Sorry, although I was pointing you to the available help, I hadn't actually read it and now I can see where the confusion arises Embarassed .

From Beginnerís guide to the PocketGPSWorld camera database

Quote:
Option 1 (single file POI)
As stated above, this category contains all of the above categories, except for the Continental one. It is for UK users who have SatNav systems that can only use a limited number of POI categories at time:

pocketgps_uk_sc

This is equivalent to your "UK SINGLE FILES"
Quote:
Option 2 (5 main categories)
This is just the main categories and none of the subcategories that show speed limits:

pocketgps_uk_gatso
pocketgps_uk_mobile
pocketgps_uk_redlight
pocketgps_uk_specs
pocketgps_uk_temp

This is equivalent to your "UK CONSOLIDATED"
Quote:
Option 3 (24 files comprising of both main and sub categories)
If you want the above but with subcategories of the Gatso, Mobile, and SPECS databases to show speed related cameras:

pocketgps_uk_gatso_20
.
.
.
pocketgps_uk_temp

This is equivalent to your "UK ZONED"

Sorry for the confusion Exclamation

Now it's up to you to decide which one you want :D

Idea Maybe one of the Mods could amend the guide to reflect the name of the downloads Question
