GO 60 update removed all traffic camera information
I updated my GO60 a few days ago. It was a birthday present back in 2014 and it came with the European map for life. Also, it had (I don't remember exactly) kind of a temporary subscription to traffic cameras (checking at MyDrive Connect, it was a 3-month subscription), which I didn't keep. However, there was some kind of giveaway a few months after and therefore it was updated back them. This was somewhere around 2015. I never subscribed to that, as I only use the device three or four times a year. It would have been nice to but I didn't feel the need to update.
However, this last updated had a message saying something like (I don't remember the words exactly, and maybe the devil is in the details but I don't see how in this case) the outdated information about traffic cameras would be deleted. The way I understood it, it would seem to me that the update would delete those traffic cameras that are no more. It's not something you see everyday but sometimes they remove traffic cameras.
But it seems either I was wrong or the message wasn't clear or something went wrong. Or something. Because ALL of the traffic cameras info was deleted. The way I see it, that is wrong. In case this is what it was supposed to happen, it's a bad move in my opinion. I had that info installed in my device and it's my problem to know that there might be new radars or traffic cameras (or whatever) that I won't know about if I don't update that info, but I had some info already, that should not be deleted. All in all, you can never say all the info on the maps is 100% accurate (yesterday was one of those days in which I use the device and I almost drove in the wrong direction on a street due to a mistake on the map, which I will inform you after I finish this) and I have to live with that, so I can also live knowing that there might be new traffic cameras I don't know about. And no, I'm not saying this because I might have been fined yesterday (not that I'm aware at least), it's all about "what I had" and "what has been taken from me". And I would like it back, of course. I don't need an update, just what I already had would be fine. Thank you.
My second question is about the search POI function in my GO60. You'll see, those few times I use my GO60 every year it's because I go on a journey to see and photograph different places, such as castles, monasteries, whatever. So, after I've listed all the places I want to visit, I add them to "My Places" on the web, as anyone would.
Considering that I have to visit those places in a particular order for a number of reasons, and to make it easier to find in the list of my places, I name them such as "2020 - 01 - Castle of Whateverplace"(*), so when I get to one place, I automatically know which one would be next without thinking. Yes, I could plan a route ahead of time, but that doesn't work for me. I usually have to skip one or more destinations so I find it easier this way. I tried it once but I got a bit confused about how the device deals with skipping destinations on a route.
All in all, this time I had 19 destinations, so they all began with "2020". I usually go to "My places" and click down until I get to my next destination, click on it, "Drive" and there we go. But as my list has grown quite a bit, and I didn't fancy coming up with a different naming system, I tried this time to use the "Search" function... but to my surprise, when I write "2020", instead of showing all of "my places" that include (begin with) "2020", it only shows the first three or four, then it shows whatever POI's it might have stored from its database.
I find this to be a problem. I mean, in my case I know what is going on, but the thing with labelling like this (or whatever other system based on pre-fixes) is that whenever I type that certain prefix, I want ALL and EVERY place with that prefix to show up, not just a few. And yes, as you know, I tried going down the list a few times but it only loads whatever it has in its database, not from "my places".
I don't know if that is fixable of if there is a workaround, but although it doesn't mean a great deal to me, I find it odd.
Thank you for your time.
(*) For those interested, in case of making a second, third or whatever Nth journey in the same year, I add some extra "label" between the year and the ordinal.
