Apparently, the Cyclops Red Light Camera detectors offered on the Garmin site, are not compatible with the NUVI 2555LMT. Can anyone tell me where to find a POI program that will work with this unit?
and to the right is a blue tab stating "red light cameras." Click on that.
it is updated every week
The nuvi 2555LMT (and, in fact, the entire 24x5 and 25x5 series) is not listed as being compatible with Cyclops (click "Compatible Devices"):
I wonder if that's just an oversight.
But page 73 of the owners manual:
shows that POI Loader will work with the device and the redlight and speed camera files here (requires a windmill* icon in your account or a fee) can be loaded to your device.
There's a bit more discussion of the 2555 and cyclops in this series of user comments:
You may want to check through this site's faqs on POI Loader, redlight cameras, adding audio alerts, adding custom POI icons, etc.
https://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/case.faces?..., only compatible on European version
Well done, alandb. It's always good to hear straight from a Garmin faq where things stand.
Maybe as more folks buy these newer non-cyclopsable US nuvis, we'll see an increase in paid membership here at The Factory--or more folks striving for their windmill.
POI Factory's are the best I've seen.
I have your same unit and this sites poi files using the Garmin POI loader work great. Make sure you download CSV extension files (use right click and save as) also keep them in the same directory on your computer.
This site is well worth the price of admission!
Okay I have a question. I have the 2455lmt and I downloaded the speed & red light camera csv files from this site. I also downloaded the bmp files and made sure they both were renamed speed-cameras.bmp etc etc. But I'm confused because I can't see any speed camera poi and I live right around the corner from one. Will I only see them if I have my traffic cable in or can I see the while not plugged up
Welcome to The Factory.
Custom POIs do not require traffic or power cables and do not require you to be driving a route. When you loaded them with POI Loader, did you get a Success window?
Let's try this: Tap these three--WhereTo/Extras/CustomPOIs, then tap Speed Cameras.
You should now see the 50 closest speed cameras to your current location. Now tap the closest one, and then Show on Map.
What do you see?
I also use POI-Factory Red Light POI's and they work fine.
If you are talking about seeing the traffic icon on the gps map. You will need to zoom in on that location to see it. When driving to that location the icon will show up once you get in close range to it. Here are two good threads to look over http://www.poi-factory.com/node/38826 and http://www.poi-factory.com/node/35396
Is there a general assumption here that the POI Factory red light camera are more accurate than the Cyclops cameras?
Reading through the various posts on the subject it appears users of both file sets are mixed. The general feeling is both do their job however, more "false" alerts are encountered with the cyclops data. If this is because the cyclops data uses reports of locations where officers have been spotted with handheld radar guns or where officers often park in crossovers I can't state as I've never used Cyclops. I do know the data from here is generally very accurate and the locations alerted to almost always are accurate.
With any database, the issue comes to how often the data is refreshed and the quality of the data to begin with. POI-Factory's active membership does a very good job of providing updates and verifications of locations which is very important in this age of easily portable units that can be moved in about an hour or two. The POI-Factory data is regenerated on a weekly basis with each location refreshed from the most current data available.
