    So to update the poi groups is it a case of importing new camera gpx files to poi groups and then importing poi groups as I didn't first time on my mib2 hu?

    I drove with map displayed this am and got a warble. The camera was a fair distance away and on on another road but I'd rather have a warble than not.

    Can the warble distance be changed or is it hu controlled / calculated?

    I thought the same lancs lad, sounded convoluted and complicated but now I've done it, it's easy enough (easy when u know how ;))

    The only bit I struggled was exporting to sd card. The first export option didn't work in my hu so reformatted sd card and exported using othe mib export option and it worked. It took a while for my icons to display but all seems happy enough now.

    The Mib units do their own calculation based on speed. Was RNS510 that you could set yourself. The Mib2 High ones come out about right. We got to take the one out with the standard unit to see. I know some conversation on whether the standard unit gets them at the right time and whether they always sound. That will also be firmware related between standard unit I guess. On the dummy run up the road it warbled at about the same time as my one does.

    Yes to the first question. You don't delete the category, you delete the data in the category then add data.

    Glad it's working for you.

    On the MK3 Seat Leon owners Group Facebook page there is a section with 'Files' and one of those is 'Add Speed cameras to MIB2, I downloaded the files and followed the instructions and it all went very smoothly.

    You do see prepared shareware speed camera files on the net. If they don't say the source you don't know whether they are knocked off ones or from a free source with a quality question. Developers that charge out for GIS data put items in them that dont exist but they find them if the data has been ripped off. Suspect GPS World do this so guys that second source their speed cameras might get a surprise.

    If you want to import your own POIs whether national trust sites or your own favourites you still need a POI Import program. Importing your own destinations in as POIs then saving as destinations makes the cars sat nav screen look like a normal standalone system where you see the destinations on the screen. Also easier that way to get a naming convention and get prepared before a journey. I use the Android App Map Coordinates N45, E25 Pro that shows you Google Maps and Openstreet. The latter is more useful for outdoor activities where Google Maps is weaker. It also provides Google Streetview so you can walk a street. If there are question about say a multi story car park entrance or where a foot path starts etc you can see it. You can make favourites. The app shows you the coordinates in about five different types. Supports degrees minutes and seconds (DMS) as well as the traditional decimal degrees. The former are the ones VAG navigation uses on the On Screen menu. That's where I get my dial in ones from or the decimal degrees ones to import into POI Inspector to build up my own destination points of days out etc.

    Can now report the warbles occur at the same time whether on a Mib2 High or Standard. I didn't notice any difference in the behaviour.

    It will do and warble near cameras not on the route. It's not a bad thing to have.

    The maps are different between the standard and high. The route finding is different. The standard unit road speeds held by road are more problematic. All a bit weird like mixed GIS databases used on each unit when they put the components together. Without using both systems you wouldn't be any the wiser.

    Agreed its not a bad thing to have. So far so good and no false alarms heard while pootling around my local area. Got a round trip to London from Lancashire tomorrow so will see how it behaves :) I'll have to remember to update the speed camera poi groups from time to time.

    Remember to reselect them as POI’s as well otherwise you will have them installed but they will not cause a warble when you get near one.

    Mind you, you won't see them on the map either. I edited that in the documentation on the Ateca thread. One of the differences between the standard and high. Discovered the other difference today on the standard when set to gps time it jumped an hour. I had read moans on other boards and wondered why at delivery it was set to manual rather than GPS time keeping (assumed this was why and sure enough the trip to the dentist gained an hour when it came out of the garage). There is suppose to a fault on recent units. Solution I took automatic summer time off, went back an hour.... we'll see. Reckon synchronized time keeping with GPS is better than it drifting. Suspect they have a programming bug.
