Ok, they're not all Dutch, you have German, Norwegian etc there. Fire up HOME and use the 'remove items' option to uninstall these. That will prompt you to backup them up on your computer.

But please do take a FULL backup using Explorer of your device first and save it.

I took off all the "kamera" sounding OV2 files with the risky sounding names and it works much better and all the various cameras are functioning. Strangly all the alert sounds changed and I needed to re-select them. Very Happy
Many thanks for the help.

What is a RAR file? I've been asked to add signalboxes to our TomTom and been sent a .RAR file. Can you please help?

It's a compressed file, similar to a Zip file, and it needs a program called Winrar to 'unzip' it.

I don't think so, but from memory, there is a time limited trial version available. However there are a number of freeware programs that will handle RARs (at least extract them). 7zip seems to extract them and has (as far as I know) a good reputation.

Did you follow the guide? Do you see files names pocketgpsxxxxx in your maps folder on the ONE IQ?

I loved the video of the speed cam set up, brilliant.

I followed step by step instruction, alas it would not allow me to download into the western europe map as it had a conflict as the folder already exists.

I did notice it says do not connect to home, i also tried this but had nothing to find about tom tom.

I then deleted all cameras and tried again, again the same results.

I was using the gps uk complete not consolidated by type if that makes a difference i dont know.

I then went back to my old format and put in the database, i can see how consolidated would be easier to download and install, any help would be very welcome.

If you mean it warned you the files already exist and do you want to overwritethe files just say YES.

Other wise can you tell us EXACTLY what the message says.

Hi all,

Very new to all this. Was wondering if i use this same method (as shown on the video for speed camera's) to install the POI's i got from this site. Or is there another tutorial i should be following somewhere on here.

Thanks for the help

Welcome to the forum, you can follow the same guide for the non Speed Camera Custom POI files although I am not too sure you will need to set up the "Warn When Near Option" as that wouldn't really be needed - Mike
