Hi tony1076, The 7150 is a bit of a rare beast and if stokiedan ever bought a TT7150 I would guess that you and he are going to be trailblazing this area of TomTomidness for the good of the rest of us.

Does the 7150 use MyTomTom? if so, I would suggest that you try following the instructions as for the other 3rd generation devices as listed Here.

If it doesn't use MyTomTom, please let us know anything about how it connects to your computer and the internet and we may be able to guide you in the correct direction. But I fear that it may be a case of trial and error. Shocked

The basic question is "Can you add user-POIs to it" and if the answer to that is yes, then you can add the PGPSW speed cam database (as it's just a collection of POI sets.

The second question is "can you set up "warn when near POI" alerts, and if the answer to that is also yes, then you can have audio and visual warnings for the speed cams as you approach them (including the voice warnings that tell you the speed limit).

To answer the first question, either:
1. go to the settings menu / Manage POIs and see if there is an entry for "Add POI category" (I'm 99% sure there will be).
2. Connect the Go to the PC and run the "MYTomTom" software. Select "Add community content" from the pop-up box when you click on the icon next tot he PC's clock. If "Add POI" is there, all is well.

To answer the second question, got to Settings / Manage POIs again. If "Warn when near POI" is in the menu then all is well. (Again, I'm 99% sure it will be there).

As AliOnHols says, for full details on adding the PGPSW speed data, you should just follow the instructions for the "NAV3" TomTom models such as the Go100, Go1005.

To add low bridge POIs from here, you need to be a subscriber to PGPSW (which you will be already if you can access the speed cam downloads). Then go to the "Download POIs" section of the PGPSW website and select the POIs you want.
Installation is just the same as for the camera files, but we haven't created any warning voice files for those POIs.
