  3. Split the database in one or more files.
    The number of speed cameras is the same for each option, no matter how many files the download contains.

    ...to get various files for respective camera types, e.g. SCDB_Redlight_20.gpx, ..., SCDB_Section_50.gpx, ..., SCDB_Speed_30.gpx, ..., SCDB_Tunnel.gpx, aso.

    ...to get the full database splitted into 2 files: SCDB_Redlight.gpx, SCDB_Speed.gpx.

    Choose All safety cameras in one category
    ...to get the full database as 1 file: SCDB_Camera.gpx.

    Choose All safety cameras in one category (another icon)
    ...to get the full database as 1 file: SCDB_Danger.gpx (just another file name).

    Note: Volvo device software can only use default icon. POI icons may look different in several software version.
    Custom POI icons as displayed on our website can not be imported into Volvo software.

  4. Press button Download Now.
    Save the file volvo.zip on your hard disc.

3 Preparing USB flash drive

  1. Use an USB flash drive with maximum capacity of 4 GB (recommended).
    Format USB flash drive as FAT32 (not: FAT/FAT16 or exFAT).
    Remove checkmark for quick format.

    Important: Format the USB flash drive each time before use (strictly recommended). Also if you bought it new.

    Copy and paste GPX files into root directory of the USB flash drive.
