I find that very useful and it works for most places, as well as the ability to use the wheel as a touch pad...but each to their own! I always used to get frustrated with the cable but looks like you've got that covered.
    Did you enjoy Alton Towers? Thorpe Park was pretty quiet 😚

    The ideal scenario for me would be if Audi used Tom Tom as their provider

    Just received an email from POIbase - they say this is how you load their database:

    1- Put an empty SD card into the PC card reader
    2- start POIbase on the PC
    3- click on "cancel" when the automatic device search starts
    4- click on button "manual selection" and select the Audi system
    5- click on -> Download >Download POIs > add some POIs and install them to the SD card with a click on "Update xxx POIs"
    6- put the SD card into the card reader of the Audi MMI
    7- click on > MENU > an then on the control button "Setup MMI"
    8- select "system update"
    9- select the storage medium on which the data is stored
    10- Update is executed

    It'd put them on as icons but won't give you warnings when you come up to them I guess.

    Exactly, I'm going to do what I mentioned earlier. I've already got the "beeper" and it's working well so far, even hidden away in the armrest of my current car.

    If you can add POIs to the standard nav, it'll work. If you can't, it won't.

    Just for those that are interested ...

    I was able to get the Speed Carmera POIs from pocketGPSWorld to work with MMI + Tech Pack (no Audi connect)

    (I also got the poibase one working but it is very limited with only 5k+ items in the default pack - i could only get about 2500 imported)

    Its a bit involved but here goes

    Download as 'Other - GPX' file and choose Consolidated By Type (The single file is too big for MyAudi)

    Upload them as 5 separate POI lists (I changed the icons too)

    Select them all and then choose download

    Double Click the resulting .jnlp file - don't just copy it to the SD card. This should run a java VM which does the rest. I couldn't get this to work with Windows 7 but it worked okay on my Mac.

    I also wasn't able to select the SD card directly but just saved to the desktop and then moved to SD card

    There should be 1 file called metainfo2.txt and a PersonalPOI folder

    Then just import under MMI Setup - System Update

    No audio warning of course but better than nothing. :-)

    This sounds silly but do you have to pay for the speed camera POI files?

    Nice 1 ctek.

    Since you seem to have chosen the same nav spec as me, prepare yourself to be 'bothered' in about a months time!

    By the way, does the poi database include mobile speed camera locations? Thanks in advance.

    Okay that sounds reasonable but I'll wait until someone can confirm that it works on just the standard SD card nav with no tech pack
    Cheers guys

    No worries Chris - shout if you need any pointers

    Its a shame its a bit fiddly with pocketgpsworld database

    The poibase one saves it directly to SD card in a format that the NAV can read straight off.

    I need to spend some more time with the poibase one to see why I dont get a full list - its about as clear as mud lol

    Still work in progress but I've tried to write to the SD card and it seems to be write protected even with the tab in the correct position. Also tried off a separate SD card and the system says the data is the wrong format.

    Will continue in case.

    A quick update now I've actually got the car

    I've managed to add speed cameras to the MMI system using My Audi. It worked first time, exactly as per the instructions. I used the PGPSW database, and selected the "consolidated by type" ASC format (strangely, the CSV format I first tried reported an error in My Audi, despite supposedly being supported). Then I uploaded the 4 ASC files (fixed, mobile, average, red-light) to My Audi as well as an icon I also got from PGPSW, and followed the prompts to convert and copy it to a blank SD card.

    Following the instructions, I successfully added the new POIs to the MMI. The only thing they don't mention is that you must remember to add the new POIs to the items you want to be visible on the map (like petrol stations, etc.) using the settings menu.

    To take care of warning notifications, I've pressed into action an old iPhone, which also handles internet radio duties. I've left it permanently connected to power in the armrest (fuse mod done so it doesn't run flat). It uses the Audi Connect SIM card for updates, so hopefully it can just stay there forever.

    A bit of a cobbled-together solution for something which Audi could have easily provided themselves, but I've managed to achieve my goal of an always-on system requiring no input from me each time I drive off.

    Well, I have the car now and intend to do a bit of fiddling at the weekend once I get a bit of time.

    Id rather have a comprehensive database than one thats easy to work around so was wondering if you had any more joy with the poibase or is pocketgps the route to take?

    Is your guide (#50 above) for poibase or pocketgps?

    Keep your diary clear for Saturday p.m.

    Hi Chris

    The guide was for pocketgps - the poibase one is really straight forward as it generates the files that go on the SD card directly

    Just shout if you need any help

    I haven't got my car yet so may be talking through my proverbial but have you tried using the iPhone app from pocketgpsworld to give audible warnings through Bluetooth on the MMI?

    AFAIK you cannot add POIs to the standard sat nav system but owners may confirm or refute this?

    User POIs can only be added to Tech Pack, with or without Connect.

    If trying to add POIs to non-Connect Tech Pack, this is only available from MY14 cars.
