- There is a quirk involved in activating safety camera POI's on GTX/RSX devices. They are directly integrated into the map and can be configured as follows: Turn your sat nav on, then select More > Settings > Audio and Warnings > Alert Settings. Activate the selection box next to "Activate Alerts". Individual categories can now be configured under "Alert Types". (Menu items may have slightly different names).
- After installing POIbase Mobile, please be sure to follow all the instructions on-screen as the program may not launch automatically otherwise.
