    @aspirin624, there is a very old Speed Camera .gpi file on the Nuvi 1490 in addition to the new one that I added - it has a different name and is still visible in the POI folder. I don't know if the old file contains the location of the speed camera that I went past

    The Honda CRV did not have any Speed Camera .gpi file in its POI folder before I added the new file.

    I have filled in the Cyclops form that you provided the link for with the location.

    Then you have double speed cams files if you say they have a different names.
    You need to delete the old ones see that they have different names then one ones you installed.

    Speed cams files will only overwrite the ones with a same exact names.

    I always delete old speed cam files and replace them with new ones.
    That way you are sure you will not have double entries and possible conflict.

    @aspirin624, That is very helpful,

    I will remove the old file and see if that fixes it on the Nuvi 1490.

    The Garmin Sat Nav in the Honda CRV only has the new file in the POI folder.

    Maybe I will drive past a few more different speed cameras in the next few days (at or below the limit.....) to see if I get notifications.

    Hello again,

    I have done a few journeys now with the Nuvi 1490 with only the most recent UKIreland .gpi file installed in the POI folder - it appears to respond correctly to all of the cameras that I encountered.

    I am still having an issue with the integrated Garmin installed in my Honda CRV. I installed the same file in its POI folder and I can see it in the garmdevice.xml file. It also seems to appear in the "device" part of the systems menu as the "Extras/Speed Cameras" entry.

    I had both sat navs active on the same journeys but I got no speed camera notifications/bongs from the Honda sat nav.

    Is there anything that I need to do to activate the file?

    EDIT - I think I found a solution - I did a restore settings on the sat nav and next time when I went out I got camera warnings!! I discovered that a restore needs to be done every time the sat nav is switched off otherwise the speed camera warnings do not appear. Maybe there is a more elegant solution but this works for me!!

    Never done this before. I have a Garmin DriveAssist 50.

    So, do I basically just drag and drop in the POI folder? Does the file name need to be changed? Does it matter what the file name is?

    There is a sample file in there currently. Can I delete it?

    When I go to the alerts menu, it still just shows Red Light Camera as an option. Is that normal? Or should I see an option for Speed Camera / Safety Camera.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    @Hubiedee,

    The Garmin DriveAssist 50 has strong protection on it and any unlocked Speed cams will not work.

    Spoiler: The manual to the Garmin DriveAssist 50
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    In the manual: <--------This is the only place you change anything

    Proximity Alerts Settings
    NOTE: You must have custom points of interest (POIs) loaded for proximity points alerts to display.
    NOTE: This feature is not available in all areas.

    Select Settings > Proximity Alerts.


    Audio

    Sets the style of alert that plays when you approach proximity points.
    Alerts

    Sets the type of proximity points for which alerts are played.




    As for the sample speed cams you would delete them. Seeing that the unlocked ones do not work I would keep the sample ones for the time being.

    Your best bet is to get a subscription to speed cams if you really need them..

    The only way to get any unlocked speed cams to work on Garmin DriveAssist 50 you would have to patch it and that could brick your Garmin.
    I will not go into how to do that.

    You will have to find a different forum for patching the Garmin DriveAssist 50 to use unlocked speed cams.

    The Garmin DriveAssist 50 North American versions comes with:

    Trip planner: yes
    Trip log: yes
    Powered magnetic mount: no
    Built-in Dash Cam: yes
    Driver alerts for sharp curves, school zones, red light and speed camera warnings and more: yes
    Camera-assisted features for Forward Collision Warnings, Lane Departure Warnings, "Go" Alert and Garmin Real Vision™: yes
    Garmin Real Directions™ landmark guidance: yes
    Foursquare POIs: yes
    Smart notifications: yes

    Did you try updating with Garmin Express??

    Just tested these files on a couple of Garmin Units I have.

    No problems at all they are unlocked.

    As I do not use speed cams it was just a test.

    Did you see if anyone mentioned it somewhere?
    Before asking a question, know it's already discussed here and at 99.9% is not unique. Use search.
