Add Speed Cameras to Europe 2007.1

I recall that RichardP1 very kindly posted the following instructions some time ago which related to 2006.1 and 2006.2, but how do we amend the files for 2007.1 ?

Here is a quick summary (in English! )of what you need to do, for more info on ripping and burning the DVD see the earlier part of the thread, I'll assume you know how to do it :

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!

I'm afraid that Navteq have altered the file structures on 2007-1. Therefore the instructions you posted won't work with 2007-1.

I added the cameras to the 2007-1 disc last night, the file structure is slightly different, but it’s not hard to work out. The eng.esc file is modded but the other stuff is in the same place.

Yes, I did mine a few weeks ago. The 2007-1 ENG.LSC is slightly different, but it's not hard to figure out.

I added speed cameras last night to the 2007/1 HIGH too. I have created 2 menus - 'speed cameras' and 'speed cameras plus mobile sites'. With the former I removed all the mobile and temp sites from the database.

I copied and pasted the relevant lines from the previous ENG.LSC file.

Funny thing is that although the cameras appear in the correct places when acessed from both my menus, the text for the list of cameras in the second menu is completely garbled on the nav screen. The miles to each camera appears correctly at the end of each line however. Does anyone know why?

The ENG.LSC looks OK at a quick glance. Check that you converted both sets of the ASC files using POIConverter.

Yes I did. If POIConverter isn't used then the car thinks the cameras are several thousand miles away!

A new database came out today so I'll give that a go. I'll use the ov2 file this time rather than the asc one and use POIConverter to convert it to an ASCII.
