Kenwood - Loading Safety Cameras as POI's


You will require a subscription to access this service:

  • Select ‘Garmin POI Loader’ from the list and then press ‘Continue’
  • Then select ‘UK – Consolidated by type (Gatso etc)’
  • Choose to save the file to your desktop or "My Documents"
  • The downloaded file is a zip file. Right click on it and extract it to the folder that you created earlier – ie ‘Speed Camera Database’ folder.

Transfer to CD-R/RW

  • On your desktop, create a folder called ‘garmin’
  • Then create a folder called ‘poi’ within this garmin folder
  • Run POI Loader
  • Select "Custom Folder (Advanced)" and then click "Next"
  • Then click “Browse” and select the “poi” folder (inside the garmin folder) on your desktop
  • The next page will ask you where you have stored the data files. Click “Browse” and select the new folder that you created earlier called “speed camera database”
  • Then click “Next” and POI Loader will create a file called “Poi.gpi” within the ‘poi’ folder (within the garmin folder) that you created earlier. 

Burn to CD-R/RW

  • Next you need to burn the whole ‘garmin’ folder on to a CD-R/RW.
  • It is necessary to finalise the disc during this process. If you are using ‘Nero’ then uncheck the box called “Allow files to be added later (multisession disc)”
  • For other brands of software it might be necessary to consult the manual or help file packaged with it, to determine how to finalise a disc.
  • You should end up with a CD-R that has garminpoiPoi.gpi

Upload POI's to your Navigation System

  • Select [NAV], then insert disc.
  • Press ‘YES’ when prompted to upload new “Custom POI” files
