Oh what tangle web we weaved. I was playing with Taiwan directional speedcam (created by Garmin) that have two new record types. This speedcam had "simple" voice announcement working on android Street Pilot. Since it's in chinese (name and description), it's hard to test and debug. But from the looks of it, it's putting the "voice data" in fields like Name, URL and GeneralText, interesting....
Here are the Taiwan map (unlocked) and speedcam (decrypted)
When I tried to test this on android Street Pilot 800x480, it would crashed 99% of the time with "Unfortunately, StreetPilot has stopped." So for those with Nuvi please see if it works (no crashing) and for those with android please see if voice announcement is working as well. Voice announcement is just a number (for the speed?) and the 24x24 icon is just a number in white with red background. Waypoint/alert won't show up in search, so only way to know that it's loaded is to check General->About->Extra and Safety Cameras (it's "Garmin Twn V2012.10") Alert is just the basic POI of "Along Road" type using CircleList. What is interesting is that the speed alerts do not set/use the speed field of the alert record. So I wonder if alert will triggered based on speed.

I know for sure, Garmin did not use GPI Creation Toolkit 4.0 to make the .gpi because it has records and fields not possible to create using just Creation Toolkit 4.0 XML specs. Fascinating stuff!
