Had my Antara 3 weeks & prior to this never had any experience with any sat nav equipment. Even now, I've not actually used it but the missus has. Anyhow, first day in new car & she gets caught speeding- 46 in a 30! Can't blame her, coming from a 8 year old Megane, doing 30 in the Antara feels like you could open the door & step out. It has taken some serious discipline to get used to this.

So, my question is........ Is there anything you can do with the sat nav system to warn of speed cameras??

I use pocketworldgps Camera database and can say it is very good and accurate. The only problem with the Antara is you can only set it at one distance from the camera with a radius of xxx yards. It also only gives a Beep with the details of the camera being approached, which is difficult to look down at when driving.

I have mine set at 1/4 mile distance and find it gives plenty of time to adjust speed if needed, I agree it only gives a beep and the position of sat nav is not the best place in the world.

There are installation instructions on PGPS website specific to each model of car/sat nav Wilma.

Sounds like the memory stick is not formatted in the correct way - needs to be FAT

Also, you need to set up main folder and the subfolders such as my POIs and SpeedCameras

The system will auto detect the files and ask if you want to install

It's looking like PocketGPS then so far.

For those that have it or have used it, is it good & accurate, kept updated well etc?


I assume they update it now & then & you just download the updates?


Thanks for the info/replies so far.
