    Default About Safety Cams warnings in France.

    I noticed that in Copilot safety Cam warnings can only be unchecked.
    I read that Safety Cam warnings are illeagal in France.
    This is what the French Tourist board says about it :

    " Satnav and speed camera alerts.
    Since 3 January 2012 French laws have prohibited drivers from carrying any device capable of detecting speed cameras. This includes products or devices able to warn or inform of the location of speed cameras e.g. satnav or gps systems capable of showing speed camera sites as Points of Interest. If you have a satnav capable of displaying French camera locations in France then you must at least disable camera alerts. Contact the manufacturer for advice too as a software or database update is likely to be available that will remove camera data for France from the device.If you have a satnav system built into your car then contact the vehicle manufacturer in the first instance.

    The French law also says that unchecking Safety Cams only is not enough, they has to be removed from the system completely.
    Only Danger Zones are allowed.

    Is there a way I can delete the Safety Cam files for the French map only by deleting some files ?

    Hi Bielgeets
    I think you are right about that.
    If I do a POI search in the safetycam catagory and I choose another place > a town in France > after the search is done I tab " map " I don't see any cams displayed on the map, only over the French border
    in Germany or Belgium.
    Same for Switzerland.

    About two months ago I crossed France with my motorhome,to visit Spain.I got only safetycam-warnings in Belgium and in Spain.So no warnings in France!
    I always use two navigation systems at the same time (Igo and CoPilot), and only Igo gave me warnings in France.

    Ok, Thanx for the info.
    It's not aways clear what's legal and illegal in France but to be safe I will also uncheck safety cams also in Copilot.
    Just to be sure.
