Speed Camera POI - Solved

Post by Machinehead » Sat Nov 11, 2017 1:20 pm

Hi,

I wanted to get Speed Camera POI on to the Discover Media sat-nav in my B8 and found this seller on eBay.

Bought it and received the file by email, copied to SD card and installed on the Nav. It failed the first time and I contacted the seller who got back to me straight away with things to try, and then supplied a 2nd update all within a couple of days and the new update worked perfectly and I now have fixed and mobile cameras, average speed cameras and red light cameras info on the NAV - Well happy!

Would recommend this eBay seller for the goods and excellent assistance. btw I have no connection to the seller, just well impressed with the goods and service.

Usually these ebay sellers etc are just ripping off and reselling files obtained from other sources, like this :

Many thanks.

Don't know where the seller gets the database from tbh. It didn't actually cross my mind! :( something to bear in mind when an update is needed though! :)

Thanks for the links - I think I found that whilst searching but the database doesn't appear to be available to purchase anymore. It also seems to be RNS-510 only which I thought was the earlier vw satnav with hdd, pre Discover Nav/Pro? Seems a bit more complicated too than just drag/drop files on to an SD card.

The poi often are in a structure and its just different file formats that can be converted, usually even big names like VAG just borrow othe sat nav companies software and files with some tweaks just to make life difficult for diy people.

The link was just an example, but the forum thread i linked details how its possible.
