Can anyone advise how this can be overcome, I don't want to use my TomTom when I have an in built system.
Thanks for any advice
ps I'm pretty IT illiterate!

Hi. New member so late reply.

See if PocketGPSWorld speed camera warnings can be added to your sat nav.  If not their CamerAlert for phones is a very good alternative.  At just under £20 pa and updates every day it cannot be beaten for accuracy and content.  If you report cameras previously unknown a year's subscription is free.

Just a happy user for several years and no subs due until end 2018!

Edit: Only Germany and Switzerland ban camera detection devices.  France requires "danger zones" covering a camera location over a long distance rather than a specific location point and PGPSW allows the option of either that version or actual camera locations.  German and Swiss cameras are also optional.  There are no reports of sat navs etc being seized by French police despite the mythical warnings of such.  I'vs continued to use mine extensively in France albeit on an SD card that can be popped out very discreetly id ever stopped.

I would prefer a built-in google-based system like Audi which uses it's own SIM car for advanced online features.  There is what may be a SIM slot (based on size) above the SD card slot but it is not marked as such.

Along with the Rio I also have a 65 plate Renault. It has a similar media/nav setup to kia but it comes with speed camera alerts that can be switched off and pretty much up to date maps and easy to use voice controlled hands free phone. Just about the best thing about the car
