3 Installation of speed camera data

  1. Connect your SD card with software iGO to the computer.
    or
    Connect your mobile device based on iGO to the computer with a USB cable.

  2. Open Windows Explorer (or Mac: Finder).
    Search for the directory ".../CONTENT/speedcam" on the SD card or device.

  3. Delete all files inside of the folder speedcam.
    The folder speedcam has to be empty.

  4. Copy and paste the 3 unzipped files into the folder speedcam.
    Pay attention to file sizes. No file has file size of 0 KB.

  5. Safely remove the SD card from the computer.
    Insert the SD card to the device.
    or
    Disconnect the device from the computer.

  6. Start the navigation on the device.
    The boot process may now take a little longer, as the speed camera data is imported into the software.

 

4 Enabling speed cameras

  1. Make sure that the device gets a real GPS signal.
    Your vehicle should be outdoors. Probably, you will not find real GPS signal if your device or vehicle is in the garage.

  2. Check all preferences in the device to enabling speed camera alerts.
    In most cases the menu is named Settings > Alerts or Settings > Warnings > Speed Camera Warning.
    The wording of the menu may be different (depending on installed software version).

    Do you have some pictures for us? (in your language)
    Would you like to improve our translations? We are very appreciative of your help. Please help us optimize our installation guide.
    Don't hesitate to send us an email any time: info@scdb.info. Thanks in advance.

    The following example shows the menu of Clarion NX405E.
    The menu is named Settings > Warnings > Speed Camera Warning (Einstellungen > Warnpunkte > Warnung bei Warnpunkten).

    Note 1: In most cases real GPS signal is required to find the menu for enable warnings.

    Note 2: The category for mobile speedcams is not supported by our database. You can only download fixed speedcams from our website.

    Note 3: The iGO software manages all acoustic and visual alerts. We have no influence on acoustic or visual alerts. Our database is just a POI file.

    Note 4: In most devices you have to choose a TTS speech for acoustic alerts. TTS speeches tells you street names and other notifications.



    Note 5: Your navigation device is based on iGO software from the manufacturer NNG. In some versions of iGO, the manufacturer blocks the display of speed camera data in individual countries. This can be Switzerland, France and border regions.

  3. Look for speed cameras on the map. And take a real test drive.
    Note: It will not work if you are only simulating a route.
    That example shows an alert with a XZENT X-F220 device.

  4. If you get no alerts or if you don't see the menu for enabling alerts:

    Please check file sizes in folder speedcam.
    Is there any file with file size of 0 KB?
    If yes: Copy and paste downloaded files again. And check files sizes after restart again.
    We regret to inform you that we have no solution in cases iGO software changes permanent the file size to 0 KB.

 

5 Updating speed cameras

    Repeat all instruction as same as a new installation to update speed cameras in your device. Delete all files inside of the folder speedcam. Copy the three downloaded files speedcam.spdb, SpeedcamText.txt and SpeedcamUpdates.spud into the folder speedcam (according to instructions above).

    We recommend to update the data once a month to drive safely.
