    Default New Garmin alerts

    Ok I have now bought a new Garmin

    Does anyone have a location where I can download updated traffic alerts and warnings like speed camera alerts?
    I have ones from 2013 but they are a bit out dated and must be honest I am not willing to pay Garmin R360+ each year for that
    I see GPS data team but they also want you to regiter

    Any help would be appreciated

    Why you need alerts if you stick to the limits.....?

    I'm not a big fan of the alerts.

    I thought they were great the first time I used them.

    Then one realizes that 99% of the time they are false alarms.

    So you spend your time speeding between false alarms, slowing down for them, then speeding again till you get caught in a trap that isn't on the system.

    Well Prof the alerts does not just generally include speed camera's
    It includes safety alerts too

    it also includes other location information

    But yearly R300+ subscription is not worth it


    And personally I have not received a speeding fine in the last 3 years so that part does not make it worth spending money

    Since driving 4X4's my fine have dropped dramatically. I have become much more relaxed on the road.
    I used to NEED speed trap warnings, today not so much.
