Good luck!

It's pretty easy ...

Just log in at least once each week for 3 weeks in a row and post something. If you can't think of anything else to post, just find the thread for the current COW (Contributor of the Week) and congratulate them. There are also a couple of other threads for making a weekly post, like the "Chit-Chat" thread, or "Keeping the Windmill Alive - Where was your last trip with your GPS?". Check out the the "Recent Posts" link to see what folks are chatting about, and before you know it, you will be making some contributions.

Lots of new speed cameras in

Lots of new speed cameras in my NY neighborhood. Is there a contact to uoload these locations?

Oh..... I see the link on the right side!

I'm curious... The newer

I'm curious... The newer maps come with speed/traffic light cameras as part of the map data. Is there much difference between the poi's offered here and those built in?

A big difference.

Ours are updated regularly by the members the built in ones aren’t.

POI Factory speed camera and red light camera POIs are sourced from local contributors and they are updated weekly! They are current where commercial providers could be years out of date.

I know - I am one of the contributors.

dlipter, you came to the right place!

I try to avoid driving into the city, but on a recent trip to Sunnyside I relied on POI Factory for the speed cameras on Queens Blvd.

A correction

zv1100e1, The speed/redlight data that Garmin provides in North America is separate from the map and what folks receive with their Garmin device is a free sample data set of the Cylcops file of North America but this file is not updated unless you subscribe annually for a fee for Cyclops updates, then remember to run Garmin Express on their device routinely to obtain/install the updates. I don't know how often Cyclops North America is updated but here at The Factory, the files have weekly updates and like Garmin's files using Garmin Express, the POI Factory's files will require downloading the files to your computer, then installing the update to your device with Garmin's POI Loader program.

PS: another bonus to the POI Factory's speed and redlight camera files is that if someone finds an error, they can write and contact our Speed Queen (sounds like a washing machine) who is also our redlight queen which may also have connotations I won't go into, and corrections are promptly addressed.

OK! Around here I know

OK! Around here I know exactly where the speed and red light cameras are. For my immediate area (chicago and north suburbs), the built in stuff has been relatively accurate. Of course, its the areas not often traveled to which need accurate data.

New speed cameras

In my neighborhood city installs new speed cameras every few month. Just on one block they installed two speed cameras and two red light cameras. My friend's daughter got three tickets (courtesy of speeding camera) within half an hour while looking for parking space.
I'm glad people report cameras to POI factory.

I wonder...

...if taking a driver's ed class each time she gets a speeding ticket would help your friend's daughter to comply.

I too am from Chicago but currently live in the SW burbs. The city is so lousy with red light cameras that I just automatically assume every intersection has one. The speed cameras are sneaky bastards though, and POI-Factory is a necessity if you want to have a prayer of avoiding them.

The burbs are sneaky with their red light cameras. The ones at 55th/Maple & Rt 53 in Lisle and 63rd & Rt 83 in Willowbrook are the ones I hate the most.
