    It is normally! Some Europe region is not updated too. But that is interesting Garmin release the same files for some region with new date only and for some without changes at all. It is old story...

    I'm using a garmin nuvi 3597 and, after i've installed the unlocked version, the velox shows up in the menu (both the proximity alert and info menu) but not during navigation or "map scrolling". How can i fix this???
    I also have another question, does this "cyclops" velox from garmin have a different voice for each speedtrap (for example when you're approaching a fixed camera it will warn you by saying "watch out fixed camera ahead")????

    Edit: i also wanted to add that i always created my velox using poi's form (poigps.com) and adding them with .wav voices on my garmin using poi loader and they always worked fine.

    Cyclops is beeps only no voice.
    Cyclops does not show as an Icon on Map.
    You need to do a simulation past the cameras and it will alert you.
    Check in settings device about Extras and Safety Cameras to see if it is listed.
    If it is listed it will work.

    They are listed under "Extras and Safety Cameras" but they don't work (they are also enabled in the proximity alert menu) !!!
    I tried with a route simulation and "real navigation" but they don't show up (i tried with both a fixed and a mobile velox).


    EDIT: I found the problem....this crappy velox by garmin are far less reliable than any database i've ever used and many of the mobile velox in italy don't show up (i tried one in milan and it worked).
    Problem Solved.

    Actually Cyclops is a very good database, It is based on the database provided by the Camera Installers and to a lesser degree on user reports.
    Cyclops is also a directional database and it only alerts in the correct direction. It also uses POI Corridors to warn you of moveable cameras.
    Judging by South Africa database it is almost 100% correct.
    When using Cyclops it is better to switch off home-made GPI files as there can be interference if the points are close together.

    The substitution of concepts is very popular in France now. But Speedcamera is Speedcamera if it is named dangerous point...

    Works like a charm but are those allowed in germany ? I know in holland it's no problem but when i used a navigon device they had the option to hide the camera part.

    Germany no problem to use speed-cams warning, France and Swiss are the country's to be careful to use speed-cams warnings.

    I've be living in Germany 2years and never got any ticket for POI use on my GPS device.
