I'm sure this has been covered but all my searches find everything BUT what I am looking for!
I have an old Garmin Streetpilot c310 (very old) which is rarely used these days but I always used the camera alerts on it. The map is out of date to the extent that lots on new roads don't appear on it.
As a new Garmin UK map would cost more than the unit is worth I have loaded OSM generic routable map. This works fine except it doesn't seem to read the camera database.
Does anyone know how I can get this to work - or is it a step too far?
Any help appreciated.

What map you're using has no effect on whether a camera database shows or not. So what makes you think it's the map?

Just the fact that the camera database worked with the Garmin map but no longer works now that I've loaded the OSM.

Doesn't work or the cameras aren't visible? The Garmin map is set to maximum transparency so if anything is going to block the cameras it would be that. An OSM map shouldn't therefore block the cameras. Whether they alert is determined in a way that isn't influenced by the map, indeed you don't even need a map. The exception to this is if the camera isn't located correctly, without a map your device wouldn't be able to 'snap to road' and therefore could miss a camera.

Try renaming the map extension from .img to something else so your device can't use it. Do camera alerts come back?

I don't get the warnings on screen or the sound alerts. I've tried re-loading the POI file but it makes no difference.
I'm away for a few days but as soon as I get home I'll give that a try.
Thanks for the reply.

I have an OSM map on my DriveSmart. I've just tried using it and get all the expected alerts. Will be interesting to see what happens on yours once you're back.
