After reading the documentation at
i tried to create a speed camera warning file for my garmin etrex cx.
After moving the resulting file to the GPS i can see the cameras and they clearly state that they should alarm above a particular speed (say 70km/h) and at a distance of say 700m.
However, approaching a camera, the alarm never goes off.
This is how the content for one camera of the input file (GPX) looks:
<wpt lat="60.212742118" lon="17.478977647">
and some of the cameras are on the format:
<wpt lat="56.215221472" lon="12.678246628">
the command issued to convert the GPX file into a GPI file was:
gpsbabel -i gpx -f infile.gpx -o garmin_gpi,category=Cameras,alerts=1,speed=30,proximity=700m,position,hide -F poi.gpi
Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Sound or other general settings on the GPS blocking them?
