The best I've got with a 2005-2 disk was to enable look up of custom POI and set them as the destination etc. but no icons are displayed on the map which makes it a bit pointless. There was a change to the way POI are handled on the 2006-1 disk, it may be possible to change the older disk format, but if it is, I don't know how.

If you want use a icon named "POI_SPEED_CAMERAS.PNG" you must will use :
/ICONS/RR/POI_SPEED_CAMERAS.PNG -> This are 31 chars
/ICONS/NAVI0X/POI_SPEED_CAMERAS.PNG -> This are 35 chars

Then S024 will be S031, this limit the lenght of the full string of complete path of icon.

Regards
What about the other parameters? e.g.
  • G508
  • G524
  • G539-I0+G523-I2+G522-I1+G521-I2!

Hi, tried my first atempt at making the Speed Cameras Disc up but to no avail. Even the TMC stopped working. I'm using the DVD High 06-1 & nav os V.27
Any ideas?
Thanks.

I have got the latest camera locations working on my 2006-2 disc. I have also managed to get the picture to display on the search screen.



I am trying to add fast food places i.e. MacDonalds, but the only bit I am struggling with is the ENG file. As posted earlier could somebody please explain what all the parameters are.

1) Make an ISO image of the 2006-1 DVD
2) Download the Speed camera database in ASC form from
Pocket GPS World, you need to subscribe to download, but it only costs £2 for a month's subscription or £19 for a year.
3) Download the following files into one folder:
a)
POI Convertor
b)
ASCI to IDX/URL Mk4 convertor
c) All the files from
Here
4) Run the POI convertor on the .ASC file from Pocket GPS world, save it as a TomTom ASCII (*.ASC) file. This changes the structure slightly.
5) Run the asc2idxurl_mk4.exe program from the command prompt in the folder you downloaded everything to, make sure that there is only one .ASC file, the one saved from the POI convertor. Use the following command line : asc2idxurl_mk4 ENG CAMERAS
6) Rename CAMERAS.IDX to 0079.idx
7) Rename CAMERAS.URL to 0080.url
8) Modify the ISO image with these steps:
a) Add camera_splash.jpg to the "\TPD\Icons" folder (I'm not yet sure if this is required, I don't think it actually works for the MK4, but do it anyway for now).
b) Add POI_CAMERA.PNG to the "\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ICONS\RR" folder.
c) Add POI_CAMERA.PNG to the "\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ICONS\NAVIOX" folder.
d) Overwrite the ENG.LSC file in the ""\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ENG" folder.
e) Add 0079.idx to the "\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ENG\TABLES\0" folder.
f) Add 0080.url to the "\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ENG\TABLES\0" folder.
g) Add SF_CAMERAS.HTM to the "\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ENG\SE" folder.
h) Add ST_CAMERAS.HTM to the "\TPD\nccBeu_eu_20050726\ENG\SE" folder.
9) Burn you modified ISO image to a DVD-R.

You should now have SPEED CAMERAS as a POI option from the "Car" main catagory.

I've had a quick look at creating sub-catagories, but I don't think it's worth it. You can create different index entries for different types of camera, and there is nothing stopping you having duplicate entries, for example "All Cameras", "All Speed Cameras", "Red Light Cameras", "Mobile Cameras" etc. but I guess if you want the feature at all, you want all the cameras!
Sweet Guide, ive just done it and its excellent cheers! a couple of questions, is it possible to use an excel version and convert it to the correct format, ive noticed a few cameras locally that dont, and never have existed and I realise that they may have been mobile ones but not in the last 8 years ive lived in my area have i noticed them? also what distance can the cameras be viewed from min?

Anyone have a copy of asc2idxurl_mk4_02.exe - the self-extractor appears to be damaged as when it is run it initially asks for a password and then when you click <OK> it fails with a pop up box stating 'Data Error in asc2idxurl_mk4_02.exe' File is Broken

Or am I doing something stupid?

Cheers.

Mark.
