I want to put both the UK and Euro text file in my content/speedcam folder.

My question is, do you put both the "pocketgps_eur_sc" and the "pocketgps_uk_sc" texts files in the speedcam folder at the same time or should you load them separately.

Thanks

You can put them both in the folder. This will give you alerts for all UK and continental ones. The only problem might be the speed readout. It may be thet a 110kph cam might indicate 110 mph etc. I'm not certain. But as you will probably be awere of the current speed limit, a cam warning at at any indicated speed shoud be sufficient to get you to check your actual speed. I think what happens and will depend on which skin you have on the iGO and possibly whether you change units from Imperial to metric or not.
Let us know what actually happens for future reference.
I might try a simulation later to see if I can work out what's what.

So to summarise. Yes, but the speed readout might be wromg for continental cams.

Thanks for the confirmation.

As you say I will need to change units from Imperial to metric and back depending on whether I am in the UK or Europe.

Well, that will depend on whether or not you want the various readouts in KPH and Km/meters. Personally I would keep my satnav to MPH/Miles as I don't have a lightning brain that converts KPH to the MPH or Km to Miles that I understand and my speedo displays in.
