    If you open the CSV file that is in your Freedrive directory already you'll notice that the columns are in a different order to the one from pocketgpsworld.com.

    There is a column that isn't required as it just contains a reference to pocketgps.com. There may also be a column title bar at the top to remove.

    It should import ok then.

    done it, open it up in excel and move the GATSO colum to the end, the Long and Lat columns go first

    Pocketgps.co.uk regularly updates their files. Not saying CDR doesn't but he's probably just doing the same thing with the same file

    CDR, I wanted to ask you something... would it be possible to add/be notified of speedcams in areas that dont have maps? It would be tremendously useful for me...

    I often travel outside of the map coverage area for my main city (there are no maps for the beach cities for example) and I'd really like to add cameras from that area, and be notified, even though there is no routing/mapping.

    Is it possible to just use the GPS coordinates without map? does this work already? (I didnt have a chance to test it) but unless you really depend on the maps, it should be possible, no?

    PS: can you check this out plz... http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...181#post640181
