I have just bought a Zumo 220.

I have uploaded the latest speed camera db and the voice alerts. I had to use the sox.exe fix as it does not support mp3 files.

It all works fine with the voice alerts except:-

1 - Visual mapping is slow, i.e. my position on the map lags behind my actual location on the road by a few seconds - e.g. it shows me entering a roundabout when I am past it.
2 - The camera icons shown are the standard ones (circle with the speed limit in the centre) not the bmp ones in the POI file.

If I delete the custom poi, then the mapping is spot on again.

Any suggestions?

ps. The configuration on the zumo is correct (I use the voice alerts etc. on my Nuvi in the car and that has no problems at all.)

I've been considering buying a Zumo 220 so would be interested to know if you have found a solution to the problem. If not, I may just go for a Zumo 550. I'm surprised that the speed camera database has any effect of delaying the on-screen graphics.Question

I was intending to use a Bluetooth headset with the 220, but with a 550 I would also have the option of being able plug my headphones direct into the unit.
