Hi all,

Only now found out i can activate speed cameras etc on my qq j10.

How do i download the latest software to update, because i click on download latest on the screen but i guess its not as simple as this?

Thanks

Nothing is free, you get the option to update but you cannot. I spoke with the stealer and they wanted around £150 for new maps so thought sod that and long live Google.

On the POI's I think you can add them but I never tried as Google and other free maps do the job.

You can buy Nissan map updates off E Bay much cheaper, or from forum member Black Rojer.
This is source I used to use for speed cams, updated weekly too.

You can do it using Google Earth/Maps (E/M) by inputting desired Lat/Long positions into a 2 column Excel file from Google E/M. Or by subscribing to:

The final Excel file (spreadsheet) needs to be loaded to the Nav system POI section with a USB stick.

Its a bit tricky and instructions are on this site...somewhere
