    Default New Zealand Safety Cams

    Just to finally close this thread NZ speedcams have now been added to the regular sticky thread although I still cant get the cams from the AU cams there is a separate up to date NZ cams file in the list. (TomTom Official Speed Cameras )
    many thanks to the Maverick for these and Biggerdave for all their diligence and time in helping us Kiwis out. (well I'm a pom really but dont tell anyone)

    Thanks Guys

    Hi There.
    I would just like to run something past you all.
    I have been looking for official tom tom New Zealand speed cams for a while but it looks like no one is sharing them.
    Now here is my question, after checking the tom tom site under Australia I noticed that their speed cams for Oz included NZ so I downloaded the Oz cams from this site and put them into my NZ map and activated them but they did not show up,
    So I then downloaded the OZ map placed the cams in there and did an autoactivate but still no luck with them showing up on NZ map.

    The 2 links below point to tom toms OZ cams pages, One is a shopping basket clearly stating OZ/NZ cams ready for download if was to subscribe, The other tells you that the cams work in NZ too.

    Anyone got any Ideas?

    Many thanks in advance.

    TomTom speedcams are NOT POI's.
    You need to plan a route past a known speedcam & then run in demo mode at just under 400x

    I've not forgotten you Joe, just haven't got to the bottom of this. Some say the Oz speedcams automatically incl those for NZ and would automatically be added to an NZ map although others say these should (and used to be) separate.
    To check you're Oz ones are there & patched you should have a Safety Cam AU TomTom.ov2 a Safety Cam AU TomTomOv2.ver AND a Safety Cam AU TomTom.ov2.dct (this .dct file proves it's been patched)

    I'll be back with more info when I get it.

    ....and you've tried a drive-by a known speedcam in route demo at just under 400x AND have a warning sound associated with the speedcams?

    If you can, try it on an Oz map to see that at least they (Oz speedcams) are OK. If so then you'll need to hang on until we get the REAL NZ ones too

    In which case it's deffo a case of not having real NZ speedcams. On another forum we're trying to get hold of these. Watch this space
