    Hey All,
    New-ish member, first post.

    I've been reading various threads here and on the US forum about cameras (and lack of in some versions of Nav) are a talking point.

    MyLink Nav in my 2017( February build), has cameras shown on the maps (purple coloured camera icon), but they do not generate an audible alert. Is there a way to make certain POI's (cameras) an audible alert?

    P.S. Car was a late afternoon pick-up and after an early evening drive, put away for the night with the first 100km on the clock - still in the honeymoon phase and lovin' it!!!

    I've since worked it out.

    Speed/Red light cameras showing on nav screen and now audible alert prior to reaching the camera is also working.

    P.S. More kms on the clock and many more smiles experienced. Luvin' it!!!

    I too am very interested to hear!
    This is something those of us with VF1's have been very much wanting ... mebbe it needs a new MyLink software version as well as the maps that Holden released last week?

    Hey,
    I have attached the settings I currently have and the software version in my SS.

    I expect it was driver alerts functions that changed things (cameras were unticked by default), but have included all my related Nav/Camera settings changed today just in case. Made a few changes at the same time...

    Camera alerts work both with a nav destination set and also with nav on but no destination set. Once changed, seemed to only alert at reaching the actual camera on first run. Second run, it alerted prior, with enough time to adjust driving style if needed (no point chiming when you have reached the camera...). Haven't sense checked the distance between alert and camera, seems reasonable with daily driving style, but have not tried to distance check it yet.

    I hope this helps.

    Dropbox link with settings and software version:

    I believe Webby_SSVR has the latest map upgrade as mine (MY15) also does not have them also and requires the map upgrade which should hopefully enable this feature

    I went for a drive to test it out and can confirm that it works. There is also a warning chime.

    My Calais has the map update but doesn't have this feature. I'll check the SS tomorrow and see. Hopefully it does have camera alert.

    Yep, that's the same purple camera icons I get, with "Camera Nearby" displayed bottom of screen and two chimes that cut out radio broadcast when chiming.

    So those that have series 1, and have had the new update just released, don't have this feature?

    My car goes in soon for service and map update, this would be a handy feature!

    It would be good to have this in our VF 1 MY15 SV6. Wonder if this is possible.

    My New MY17 has this feature and is pretty cool. Tried it coming to work today and got 4 camera notifications coming to work. My Calais was updated in December but does not have this feature. I'm going to ring customer care now as I still have the reference number for the booking to update the maps on the series 1. I want this feature on both cars.

    Let us know how you go for the VF Series 1. I'm very interested for this for our car as I'm getting very forgetful in old age and health

    According to Holden all models should receive the cameras with the map update.
    See attached live chat with Holden
