Hi Everyone, lifetime member from way back.
I used to use this on my Tomtoms in my various cars.
Then once GPS became standard in most cars I ditched the Tomtoms.
Fast forward a million years and I now own a Tesla model 3 and wondered if anyone had managed to get the database to integrate into the Tesla Google maps.
Hereís hoping someone much clever than me has figured this out.
*apologies if this is in the wrong section but I wasnít sure where the question would fit.
Neil.

I don't think there is...

Did a quick Google and came across this: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/u-k-speed-camera-warning.159467/ (pretty sure that's you at the end Laughing Out Loud)

Hi mrfreeze,

Whilst I think that there is a way to add your own custom POIs to Google Maps, I believe that Tesla use their own proprietary version of Google Maps so that you cannot add your own custom POIs to Tesla's Google Maps.

Your best bet for camera warnings is to use either CamerAlert (iOS iPhone) or STA (Android).

Out of interest, do you have an iPhone and if so, do you have the POIViewer app for managing POIs? I'd like to know if the following works for navigating to a POI in a Tesla:

1. Lauch POI Viewer
2. Find the POI and select it
3. Tap on direction
4. Tap on "More apps.."
5. Tap on the Tesla App, the coordinates of the POI should be sent to the app and then the Tesla itself.

Regards,

Thanks for the link, thatís not me at the end, but I could see why you think it was. I didnít have a Tesla in 2020.

Hi Robert,
Yes I have an IPhone but not the POI viewer. Just looked and itís a paid app.
