Hi,
I have this unit in one of my cars. Love the unit, hate the out of date inaccurate speed camera database. Since I am subscribed here (other car has a supported system) I wondered if anyone had any ideas how I could get the latest database from here onto my Pioneer?

My only option at the moment appears to be use Cameralert on my Android alongside the Pioneer and thats one too many dashtop devices. I prefer to go with built in.

Please note that I am dumb as a brick with techy stuff ie pretty old. Though I can follow idiot proof instructions!

Thanks in advance.

Page 30 of the manual says you can add custom POI's to an SD card using the 'NavGate FEEDS' software on the PC.

I can't find any mention of being able set up warnings for POIs or if they are just for navigation but it could be worth looking into that and seeing what it offers?

I have not yet had the enthusiasm to try and convert the PGPS World CSV file to the CSV file format in Pioneer Navgate, but you can load Speed Cameras from POIbase.com/en - costs about 15.00 EUR for annual speed cams, doubt if it is anywhere as good as PGPSW database, PGPSW do not seem interested in offering a Pioneer version of their database, but it is better than nothing.

My Pioneer unit is the F310BT, you load the poi on an sd card and then insert the card in the unit to update, I have never been able to use the USB cable to update which seems an endemic problem.

huh?! buy me one and I'll test and create a version of the database.

failing that why not tell us what the exact format needs to be??

surely my post above where i hunted out the manual, read through the whole thing to find reference to POIs and then offered advice back here is evidence that we are interested in offering a database that would work?

As MaFt says, if you know the format, as apparently you do to be able to convert it, then post a snippet of the database in the right format, and watch MaFty wave his magic wand. If it can be done, I'm sure that he will do it, just for you Very Happy

will possibly get up someone's nose, and make them feel less likely to help. [/rant]

Reviving a fairly old thread because the iGO txt file method doesn't work on my AVIC-F940BT.

The POIBase database is pathetic and I'd rather give you guys the subs than continue paying for a DBase that constantly needs revision because they've wrongly removed active cameras ...How can you trust a setup like that?

I've just downloaded the files for the most recent updates and checked it worked on my unit! It does! I've uploaded the "Blackspots" folder to Dropbox, complete with 3 files, which can be found @ https://www.dropbox.com/sh/a56fx1eks067zz0/AAC0u5R6u1eT9yxkUw4d2j2Ta?dl=0

I'd really appreciate it if you guys could do something with this to make it work with the more recent AVIC's ..it'd secure my subscription (and that of many others) for the next 3 years at least.

Thanks & Let me know if you need me to test anything. Cool

Yep second this post, both for testing and subscribing/donating. POIBase is poor at best.
