Got my new Zumo yesterday to replace my Ipaq 2210/TT6, its early days yet but I've installed all the POIs I need (converted most from the TomTom using POIConverter and uploaded using Garmins POI Loader), but how do I get the same POIs to be shown in Mapsource on the PC , there doesn't seem to be any way to upload directly from the Zumo, or to put directly into Mapsource.

Use POIConverter to change the files to to .GPX which Mapsourse will open. Or Downdoad the Garmin single file with all camaras GPX from PocketGPSworld.

For the Speed Camera Database:-
Just download the .gdb file from the database.
Unzip and open the resultant .gdb file.
I have assumed that you already have the MapSource software.
All 11000+ locations will be shown.

I save all my POIs as CSVs for the Zumo, I thought about GPXs but whilst the Speed Cam database for Garmins Zumo is in CSV,GPX or GDB format , the Garmin POI database on the Pocket GPS site are all CSVs (and POI Converter doesnt handle these).
To get the end result of my own POIs into Mapsource I converted the equivalent OV2s to GPX format and did get them into Mapsource, but decided it was all a fairly pointless exercise as map scrolling was at a snail pace (with 11000+ speed cam icons) plus the icons displayed were different - though with a bit of tweaking I probably could have sorted that. In the end I decided it wasn't worth the hassle!

As far as I am aware the camera display will only show up as a separate entity ie they will not be shown as an overlay or as an integral part of any other map
