Hi

My Dad's trusty TomTom XXL one needed replacing due to the WNRO mess.

I opted to get him the TomTom Go Basic 5". He's pretty happy with it, especially the ability to update over wifi. But sadly I had no idea that TomTom have dropped support for custom POI's on the newer models.
He missed having the PocketGPS speed cams telling him speed cams, the distance and the speed. Instead all he gets now is the default tomtom warnings of a fixed speed camera.

I believe he can get a refund within 14 days at Halfords and get the Garmin instead.

Can someone confirm that the Garmin Drive 51 LM 5" will allow him to put the pocket GPS speed cams on like he is used to?

thanks

David

All Garmins allow POIs

With proximity alerts, so OK for speed cams.
Some GPS's (Sygic) allow third party POIs, but removed the proximity alerts a while ago. About as much use as tits on a bull for speed cams.
