Thanks, yeah i figured that out last night after most of my hair was torn out!

I had a quick go at importing my POI's before i went to bed, not sure if im doing it right or not, i clicked on 'import', then double clicked the .csv file from the POI i wanted to add, then clicked 'overwrite' to update the original DB file. However, when opening the DB folder again through poison.exe i couldnt really see any changes to the stock POI list?

One other question is.. does the .csv file contain the POI image that physically appears on the map (speed camera picture etc) or do i somehow have to import the .bmp as well?

It does not mod the original db files mate, you add the cameras and then save the db (to a new dir), this then is the modded db, you then add this to you disc image.

No.

It has the locations loaded into the db, when 1 is displayed on screen the mod will place the png from location 216 (withing the OS), on scree as well.

So, if you dont change the png, you get the tank icon.

Read Post 1 mate. (again, lol)

So what happens about the icons for other POI's that i want to add (for example 'shell petrol stations')? Do i have to change the icon on the OS for those as well? (im using the v.32 OS you sent me the other day btw, so most of the mods had already been done, including the tank icon->speed camera icon).

Thanks again.

Wrong thing mate.

Poison is for db mods (direct into the carinDB file), so you can any poi you like here, but it always uses icon216.

Adding 'shell petrol stations' to the POI menu, is done via a different method, and is added to the map disc in a different place.

Only if you change the contents via poison.

Nice one, thats cleared things up. So this thread is purely to show how to add speed cameras, rather than being able to add just any POI that you like?

Yes, for adding cameras via poison, adding POI to the disc is done another way... have a look at PipMyNav for that.

Hey mate, could you please tell me how to do that? I think I can do it myself if you would give me a brief description (PM?). I remember that fot the 2010 version one had to download a file which was basically the DVD structure but just without the DB files. As said, if you could briefly tell me how to do it I can do the work myself

Thanks!

Hi vince59it, I know how to add the speedcams with poison, but according to ccfj1, as of the 2010 disc there are additional mods required to get the disc working. I was asking him for that. I got a working copy now
BTW: ccfj1, your inbox is full!
