Formatting question for camera csv files

 

My Mio uses a couple of different settings that I don't see in the csv files for the red light cameras. Was curious if any of that coding was supposed to be related to this? The Mio has settings for the direction of the cameras and for the speed at the intersection. Would that csv file hold this information? I don't see anything I'd recognize as speed or direction.

With my Mio, importing the csv file (I have to convert to ov2 files first) does not give direction and type of camera. It seems to work well however, I guess depending on the side of the street the camera location is on.

My C310x requires a "spud"

My C310x requires a "spud" file for redlight cams. Not sure how to interface an ov2 file for this. When entering them, you have a list of types of cameras, direction, and speed at the intersection. It's easier to see when you enter one manually, but it's also in the csv/spud files. Was just curious if in the csv file for cams here had any of these features embedded in what I'm seeing. In example, here's one of the names listed: Red Light Camera .01vx0. Didn't know if that stuff at the end (.01vx0) had anything to do with that.

Here's the data columns that I see in the GPXtoSPUD program:
Lat, Long, Angle, Angle type, Speed, Camera type, and Flags.

spud files

The codes at the end (e.g., .01vx0) are just an ID code for the location. It allows us to track down the individual POI record if someone has a question/problem.

Do you have any more details on the SPUD format such as what values are allowed for angle type, camera type, etc.

I may be able to build an option to automatically download in this format if I can get some of these additional details.

Any developments on this?

Any word on this? I want to convert the speed cam CSV file to SPUD file (for use with MIO C310X).

The Speed Limits are listed for most of the Speed Cameras. For instance...

Speed Camera 55 MPH .0271w

What you can do is open the .csv in Excel.
Highlight the name column.
Sort the column form A-Z and expand the selection when it asks.
Then they should be in groups of the speed limit. Make a new column and type in 65 or whatever it is and drag it down to fill in the column until you get to the next speed limit then repeat.

I did this on my Magellan with the traffic cameras so that they would be in separate categories for Red Light, Speed, Freeway. Mobile, and School Zones. It speaks the category of whatever the POI is in so my alerts are the lady saying "Freeway Cameras" or "Red Light Cameras", etc.

As far as red light cameras go you are probably going to have to put in the speed limits manually for the ones relevant to you.
