Hi Leo

I have been using your excellent app for a while now for the speed cameras but recently I tried to set up some custom alerts for Low Bridges based on the premium POI set from this site.

tldr: is there a variable or something I can use to notify me of the bridge height from information contasined within the database

For info these are the stewpsd I have taken to create the alerts

I uploaded to the STA app the premium POI set for Low Bridges in Garmin CSV format

An example from this database is 0.14517,51.43955,"Bridge - 10ft, Bexley, Manor Way","" (admin I hope I am forgiven for showing this one line)

This allocated the Camera Type as 100590

I then used Settings | Alerts | + to create a Low Bridge alert using the camera type above

This satisfactorily gives me an audible and visual alert either in STA or overlaid another navigation app (Sygic)

The databases I have installed are this Low Bridges and the speed cameras

Is there any way that I can get the height of the bridge to be spoken and displayed. One way I suppose would be to upload each height as a seperate database but that would mean 47 different alerts!

I am happy to batch edit the text/csv file if required to remove everything but the lat/lon location and height if there was some variable I could use to allow the identification.

Is there anyway I can do this?

Thanks for your assistance and thanks also for the great app
