I just subscribed and downloaded the red light camera POI files. I have read as much as I could find but still have some questions.
I can't seem to find what the unit (Street Pilot 330) will actually do when approaching one of the red light intersections. I know one can download specific sounds but is there a default one that will sound if one of the specific files aren't downloaded.
I can't seem to be able to find anywhere if the SP 330 will even accept new sounds from a POI download. If the 330 will accept the sounds then how is it downloaded and how is it specified for use with the red light files.
Thanks in advance for any info anyone can shed light on my questions.
Only units with an MP3 player can accept custom alert sounds, however, the redlight file will alert at .25 miles as long as the word "redlight" is in the filename when you load it.
If you take a look at the Help File for POI Loader under "Alerts", you will find detailed information regarding the alerts.
On units without Custom Alert sounds, the default "bong" sound will sound and a visual alert will be shown on the screen.
Note that as with all alerts, you must be on a road that the POI location is on and traveling in the direction of the location and alerts must be activated on your unit, in order for alerts to sound.
I get an alert at one corner (which is the dong sound and the top bar turns red) and for the life of me I can't see the camera's. But then again I never stopped and looked closely. At least in Chicago, there are signs warning you. And the camera's are very easy to notice.
It could have been an old site where a camera use to be located, just a guess.
