hi
about to collect a new bmw with built in sat nav. i understand this does not have speed cam alerts (or the facility to add pgpsw ones to it).
if i run my tomtom live with no route planned, do the camera alerts run as normal so at least i would not have to set a route each time?

thank you.

I can't comment on the TomTom but I've just bought a 2015 BMW F10 (5 Series Saloon) and although the NBT Pro Nav is a huge improvement on the older CIC Pro Nav, routing is still not on a par with TomTom and there is definitely NO way to add User POI (PGPSW camera files)

They do if you leave unticked the final option of Warn only if POI is on route, in the Manage POIs setting.

But if you do not have a route planned you will be warned about a large number of cameras on other roads. It is amazing just how many cameras can be located on other roads, especially if your warning distance is set to a reasonable distance. For a 70mph camera you need a fairly generous warning otherwise it is too late when you get the warning.
