At present I import the PGPSW cam database into Sygic so that I have the mobiles and SPECS showing on the Sygic map and run CA in the background for the alerts. That works just fine and dandy for the UK cams.

Having recently treated myself to twenty five quids worth of Western Europe maps, I tried inporting the PGPSW EUR cams. This failed wit an error message something along the lines of "Import Failed" Sad

I think that Sygic requires that POI (cam) imports are done by country. Has anyone had any experience of this? Can what I want to do be done? If so, how?

It'd need a total re-write of the download system to split the download into files by individual country. For the number of Sygic users it's not something high on our priorities for that amount of reworking.

Perhaps I could add the country code (2 or 3 letters) to the download and this could then be filtered in Excel or similar to grab the countries you need for converting? Would that be beneficial?

It certainly would MaFt. I still am not sure whether several files can be done at the same time, or even one after the other. What I'll do is sort out a few French cams from the EU download, rupi them and see what Sygic makes of that. I wouldn't want you do anything until I have found out whether it works or not so as not to waste your time (unless you already know the answer). I'll have a go at it in a bit and report back.

The original quuestion was a general one to see if anybody had managed it without too much faffing.

Hi M8TJT, have you tried converting any Euro cams to rupi format as yet and if so, did they import to the relevant map folder?
I'm interested as I run Sygic as well as TT.

Well, it's sort of yes and no. If you just try rupi'ing the data and then importing it it starts importing ok putting the cams in the correct country then fails with an error. The problem seems to be that there seems to be a limit of eight countries allowed, but I'm not sure as I havn't yet been able to prove my theory as I am waiting for MaFt to do the 'country code' thing that he kindly offered to do above. If I can split up the cams by country, then I can continue with my experiments. I will certainly post here again when I have further info.

Your efforts sound promising. The 8 country limit wouldn't be a problem for me as over and above the UK I only keep the maps that are relevant to my normal European 'visits' areas (FR,B,NL) plus at the moment DE,AU & CZ as we are venturing further onwards later this year.
Hopefully MaFt will get the codings included soon so that the cams can be sorted and that will take us forward.
I will continue to watch for your update and thanks for the info on the current situation.

Anyone found a solution for this yet.
