Speed Camera loading for Dummies

How many would like to know how to set speed alerts to only alert if you are going to fast!!!!
Well I have searched on this site and read all the threads and even the help section in the poi loader and it was not clear to me on how this works. I have been watching and reading all this stuff and I see there are a lot of us that can’t understand a lot of this lingo.
So I started to play with all the info from this site and my GPS and have figured it out,, some of you might already know this, but it is hard to ask a question on how to do this stuff on these web sites (it’s easier to talk on the phone or in person to get information).
So here it is as per my findings on how to set the speed alerts to only alert you if you are going faster than the posted speed.
1rst you need to go into the speed camera cvs file and add the @ sign before the speed in all the line (this is on the threads here and in the help section on the poi loader), this will take some time but it is worth it. I only did this for my state at this time.
Example: speed camera @65mph
By doing this it will also turn the grey bar to red and won’t stop alerting till you slow down.
Next on the same file increase the speed by 7 to 10 mph I have mine set at 10mph above the posted speed. (AZ cameras will flash at 11mph over).
Example: 65 + 8 =73mph
Speed camera @73 mph
What this will do is alert you only if the difference is greater than 7 mph. So you can cruise at 65 to 66 mph with out an alert just the icon will appear.
Now when you load this file after you made all the changes go into the poi loader and when you come to speed camera file select the distance at the bottom and enter 0 not the 1985 change to 0.
I hope this will make it easier to understand on how this file will work. I was getting tiered of every mile and a half of beep, beep, beep, caution approaching speed camera.
AZ has or will have over a 100 + speed cameras and I drive all over the valley and it gets annoying at times to have the alert always sounding. Now I set the cruise control and I still see the Icon but no beeping unless I am going to fast then it lets me know.
