Hi everyone
Does anyone know if there is a speed camera warning facility on the sat nav?
I can't find anything in the handbook
Thanks 馃檪

I don't Gazza, but hey it's nice to be warned if there is one, if you find yourself inadvertently doing 31 mph 馃槀

Living on the fringes of South London/Surrey there are, within a couple of miles of where I am, speed limits of 20, 30, 40, 50 ,60 & 70 along with a multitude of speed cameras. As much as I try to be aware of everything and stay within the law it's nice to have a helping hand in the form of a beep occasionally.

PS Does the SatNav show the actual speed limit in force and give any sort of warning if that is exceeded?

If I recall correctly from reading on other forum when people have downloaded the cameras it's done as points of interest so won't make any noise just shows a picture on the screen. It's probably easier to download Maps with cameras onto your phone and then link it through the usual methods. Also if you travel to France, not sure about other European countries, it's and offence to have speed camera location activated on Sat nav so you'd have to go back in and turn them off, not a big issue but that's why they don't come with it from the factory.

Hi Ancient one, yes that's my point! So easy to stray above the limit without noticing, so a beep is handy, especially in an unfamiliar area!

Try Waze with Carplay/Android Auto, features speed camera (and plenty of other) alerts, if you want them. I think it's a lot better than the built in Sat Nav.

I currently use Waze as well and think it is excellent and it will give traffic updates and divert you around slow moving traffic etc. Warns about accidents and vehicles parked on hard shoulders etc.

Im just pulling yer leg, it is too easy these days to edge over and BAM you got a fine in the post...
I got traffic camera alert on my tomtom.
interesting that in the cupra forum they have a way of installing the POI's in to the navi system on the Ateca. This is the same system as the Arona?
using a VW website that does the file conversion for you.
So as i have the TOMTOM with lifetime updates, it may be possible to convert these to be uploaded into the Nav system. More research is needed...

I may have a go at transferring, but it seems overly complicated.

I used to do alot of POI transfers back in the day. I will run my Garmin DriveSmart in parallel with the car sat nav just as a comparison.

As a side note, I don't like sat navs on the windscreen so use a central vent mount. It looks like it might obscure the Arona screen though. We shall see.
