Update whenever possible. I recommend Ash10's Camera Manager Utility as this automatically prepares teh update, you just have to upload it.

Make sure that all of your POIs are in the same location on your PC as when you upload you replace all existing POIs. By having them all in the same location you ensure you don't miss any out during the upload.

...and no, you don't have to delete anything as these individual safety cam and POI files are all combined into a single file on the i3 which overwrites the old file.

depends how much motoring you do . if you are a daily traveller then its worth doing it every month but i personally upgrade every four to five months....new cameras do po up now and again but not as much as in the beginning of the safety camera phenomenon....

I've found that the most frequent changes are around roadworks, where you'll get a warning about a reduced limit after the roadworks are complete or have moved on down the road. Like zogs, I now only update every few months.

Just install Ash10's Camera Manager Utility and let it tell you when there's an update. Fabulous little proggy, very much appreciated here.
