    danger Speed camera alert speed is set to the incorrect speed

    I've actually contacted Garmin support three times on their website about this with no reply, let alone the 3 working days its says I'll get a reply.

    I've bought a new Garmin SatNav and the speed camera alert speed is set to the incorrect speed of 50mph for a whole stretch of motorway, but you can see on the bottom right hand corner of the screen the speed limit is correctly showing 70mph, please see screenshot: 20160711 154859 zps963uh6j9
    I drive this road everyday and it's extremely annoying to have the 50mph alerts constantly beeping at me when even the satnav shows the correct speed limit of 70mph. I've updated maps but hasn't resolved, not sure if a speed camera update will?
    If so I'd like to get a free speed camera update from Garmin really. Will have to try calling them when I get time because they're not replying to my emails on their website.

    Are you sure that those messages come from Garmin [map]? Perhaps they occur due to old Cyclops gpi-files? Search for those in the POI folder on the device.

    Is the correct speed really 70 mph, There is a possibility that the Map is incorrect.
    Anyway it is reporting an Average Speed Limit Zone not an actual Speed Camera.
    The Warning is a Cyclops warning you can update your Cyclops right here @ Gpspower.net
