Hi there Brummygit, thanks for the link but I beat you to it by about 2hrs ha ha. Managed to load the safety cameras, went for a drive and bingo they work!!!! great stuff. There is a bit of a shortage of POI's for Garmin on the net, it seems like all the effort went into the Tomtom Go's unless you know different?? metroman.

Look at POIEdit on (details are on this site) and especially the autoupdate wizard - there you will find poidownload.co.uk where you can get masses of data. You can then write them into either CSV format and included them in the directory with the speed cameras or open them in mapsource format and import them as waypoints (favorites on the 2720).

I would do the first option as too many waypoints are not good.

Great bit of kit but I'd love it to connect to my laptop!
I loaded the software and registered the maps ok but when I connected the unit to the laptop there was a momentary message saying something like USB port overload. It happened so quickly I was unable to read it correctly. Needless to say the unit and the laptop are not speaking to each other.
I wrote to my supplier who asked Garmin and was advised to d/load the drivers again from their site which I duly did but this hasn't resolved the problem. The USB port is working fine as my daughter uses a webcam. Does anyone have a solution to my problem? metroman



HI there,
After reading this i couldnt help but trying to help. i have a garmin navigator V and for the last few days, i dont know if it was a windows 10 update or something with the garmin itself. So i bought a (for me) USB A to Micro B Y-Cable which provides 2 USB "A" Male connectors and 1 USB micro "B" Male connector, provides the additional power required by some Micro USB external devices..................... BANG IT WORKED FIRST TIME.
