Hi,

Had my Tom Tom One a while took some offer to use their camera update service. What a load of rubbish, so so bad...anyways happy to get pocket gps camera data base on it, but not sure how to remove Tom Tom's.

Do I just delete them all. Seem to be Safety_cam files and Radar_Be files.

My second problem, my mac will not unzip the file, also tried a third party program to unzip caller rar expander. Not having a very good day...Forget this one, just downloaded The Unarchiver, worked a treat.

Thanks

You can either just switch off the TT-supplied camera warnings in the menus (varies by model but on mine its Live Services / Safety Alerts / Disable Safety Alerts)

or you can completely remove them by one of two methods

1. using Home - in Manage my device / Items on device / Remove

2. Using Windows Explorer or the Mac Finder to just remove all the files with names like Blitzer, Radar, Safety_Cam Fartsboks and Fartkamera (Fnar,fnar!) etc.

There's three files for each: an .ov2, an .ov2.dcv and an Ov2.ver
