Please help a relative beginner ! I've updated my RAC 110 with the camera database. The ICONS show just fine on the maps but now I don't get the flashing speed warnings I used to get if I was within the warning distance from a camera and travelling too fast. This feature is controlled in the 'configure alarm' section of the 'change settings' menu and can be set to give visible and/or audible alarms. The handbooks aren't explicit on the topic, and at first glance it looks like a one-off alarm at a single speed, but try it with the original camera files and you'll see what I mean. Is there something in the pocketgpsworld .csv files that is different or missing? Is there anything I can do to get the feature working with the new files? For sure the warning is a good feature and I don't really want to lose it. All help much appreciated, and thanks in advance.

I also found the overspeed alarm didn't work with the PocketGPS files, but after a little lateral thinking, and empirical testing, I have found a solution.

The unit seems to be hardcoded to certain file names for the speed warnings, here's what I did:-

1. downloaded the PocketGPS files using a SatNav System of Route66 - PocketPC and a Camera Selection of UK - Speed Zoned Complete

2. Unizipped the files to a temporary directory on my hard drive

3. Created the following DOS batch file in the temporary directory and ran it to rename files

Code:
@ECHO OFF

ECHO Rename files from Pocket GPS World to RAC SATNAV Format

REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_tba" "Speed limit"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_20.*" "Speed limit, speed 20.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_30.*" "Speed limit, speed 30.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_40.*" "Speed limit, speed 40.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_50.*" "Speed limit, speed 50.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_60.*" "Speed limit, speed 60.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_70.*" "Speed limit, speed 70.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_gatso_var.*" "Speed limit.*"

REN "pocketgps_uk_redlight.*" "Red light control.*"

REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_tba" "Section speed control"
REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_20.*" "Section speed control, speed 20.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_30.*" "Section speed control, speed 30.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_40.*" "Section speed control, speed 40.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_50.*" "Section speed control, speed 50.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_60.*" "Section speed control, speed 60.*"
REN "pocketgps_uk_specs_70.*" "Section speed control, speed 70.*"


4. Copied the new files over the existing ones on the unit.
