    Last minute news is that in Switzerland some PDN's have been banned.They will be confiscated and a heavy fine given. It has become illegal to have a PND that warnes you of a Speed Camera . Swiss Police are looking for Nav systems with any type of camera pre-warning feature.Not only but even sale or production has been banned.Vacationers beware!



    Hmmmm this is going to spead out man I can feel it.:eek: :mad:

    It is only the positional data, the speed cam POI's, that have been banned not the devices themselves. They have banned the sale of any devices that have pre-installed speed cam POI's.

    Delete the Swiss speed cam POI's and it is all good.

    I am guessing the Swiss government is losing alot of revenues from speeding tickets?? haha, to be that concern about a little device thats gonna warn and remind people not to speed when it isnt deem appropriate by the government... hmmm. A radar detector IMHo acts way differently than a GPS with Redlight POIs.

    This http://www.speedbandits.dk/ should be any government's attempt to reduce speeding in all countrys. Wish we have these in the states....:D :eek:
