    Just bought an Ipaq 2210 and tomtom3...
    Id like to add Speed camera warning to this setup - I know there are quite a few databases out there, but which is the best/simplest to use?
    I want something that will integrate with tomtom so I dont have to switch off GPS to get the camera warnings.
    Any advice?

    I use the database from Pocket GPS World which integrates with TomTom quite nicely and its free :)

    Thanks Carlos...
    I had a look at that one and it seems like the one to go for.
    Could you give me any tips on installing it?
    I know the site has instructions, but I wondered if there were any little tips that might be useful?
    Do I need to download a POI editor?

    Yes if you download POI editor then it does all the work for you, All you need to choose is which POI`s you want and it loads them to the SD card on your 2210 with the other POI`s that come woth TomTom

    The speed camera one should be at the top of the list "Pocket GPS_UK_SC", The rest are up to you whatever you want as POI`s when on your travels !

    Highlight the one you want then click on +PDA at the top, Then you will get a box pop up and you select save which will add it to your PDA, Don`t forget to update it regularly by selecting autoupdate !
