Fixed Alpine sat navs can be enhanced with additional POI's and the locations of stationary and mobile safety cameras via POIbase. POIbase ensures the quick and easy installation of the required data, and you will be ready for a safe trip in no time.
POIbase is compatible with the following Alpine sat nav systems:
- W710D, W997D , X701, X801, X802, X901, X902
- INA-W910R, W910BT (new version), W920, W925, W928, W970BT
- INE-W970BT, W977BT, INE-W990BT, INE-W990HDMI
- Safety cameras can be displayed on the map
- Audio directional warnings when approaching safety cameras.
- POI's can be displayed on the map
- POI radius search
- Some sat navs require the SD card to be prepared with the SyncTool, after which POIbase detects the memory card as Alpine or iGO Primo.
- Some sat navs (W710D, W997D , X701, X801, X802, X901, X902) need to be selected manually in POIbase.
- For ALPINE NVW-M300P up-to-date firmware 20.05.2011 or above is imperative.
- No safety camera warnings in Switzerland and to some extent France.
