1 Important note

    Your navigation unit is based on iGO software from the manufactor NNG. In some iGO versions, the manufacturer blocks the display of speed camera data in individual countries. This can affect Switzerland, France and border regions, among others.

    The installation of speed cameras is disabled in the version iGO nextGen. You can recognize this version by the icon of the application file:

    After map and software updates, the speed camera warning function may be lost. Therefore, consider carefully beforehand whether you really need the update. It is no longer possible to reset to the previous version afterwards.

    Please try our free sample file before purchase.

5 Enabling speed cameras

  1. Make sure that the device gets a real GPS signal.
    Your vehicle should be outdoors. Probably, you will not find real GPS signal if your device or vehicle is in the garage.

  2. Check all preferences in the device to enabling speed camera alerts.
    In most cases the menu is named Settings > Alerts or Settings > Warnings > Speed Camera Warning.
    The wording of the menu may be different (depending on installed software version).

    Do you have some pictures for us? (in your language)
    Would you like to improve our translations? We are very appreciative of your help. Please help us optimize our installation guide.
    Don't hesitate to send us an email any time: Thanks in advance.

    The following example shows the menu of Clarion NX405E.
    The menu is named Settings > Warnings > Speed Camera Warning (Einstellungen > Warnpunkte > Warnung bei Warnpunkten).

    Note 1: In most cases real GPS signal is required to find the menu for enable warnings.

    Note 2: The category for mobile speedcams is not supported by our database. You can only download fixed speedcams from our website.

    Note 3: The iGO software manages all acoustic and visual alerts. We have no influence on acoustic or visual alerts. Our database is just a POI file.

    Note 4: In most devices you have to choose a TTS speech for acoustic alerts. TTS speeches tells you street names and other notifications.

    Note 5: Your navigation device is based on iGO software from the manufacturer NNG. In some versions of iGO, the manufacturer blocks the display of speed camera data in individual countries. This can be Switzerland, France and border regions.

  3. Look for speed cameras on the map. And take a real test drive.
    Note: It will not work if you are only simulating a route.


6 Updating speed cameras

    Repeat all instruction as same as a new installation to update speed cameras in your device. Delete all files inside of the folder speedcam. Copy the downloaded file SpeedcamText.txt into the folder speedcam (according to instructions above).

    We recommend to update the data once a month to drive safely.
