    If you read forum with passion you could find extended info about France Cyclops.

    So it is trick from Garmin side. The point of it is as you quote - spots with safety cams was replaced with dangerous zones of quoted length. It is not prohibited by legislation! The workaround take place only.

    For others Cyclops you can read user investigation of Cyclopes format here...

    Ihave a question,
    with my simulator i never saw red light camera (alarm was 50km) my simulator run at 47km! is it normal, alarm red light not come ?

    The red light is in 50km zone and the GPS simulator ride at 47km in rural areas(Therefore unless 50km), could that the alarm red light created by Cyclops ever triggers for speed trap 70km (71km drive on my simulator) and for the speed trap at 100km, 108km drive on my simulator!
    in short all the speed traps my gps simulates at least 1km more ?

    So normaly no need km/hr for one red light alarm!

    i think my nuvi 360 is told for saw picture with little red light same post number 7
    so i saw banner text for speed trap with icone camera, but for redlight not working well ?

    Thanks for that useful information! Red light cameras are implemented for the increase of safety to intersection but have been precisely the opposite, many people say it is only for money grab. It take a photo of a driver and his or her license plate when they drive through a red light. Motorists typically hate them. Many feel the products are intended to make cash for a city, and not to catch bad-guys. However, two devices have just appeared that use comparable technology to make [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] photos useless to law enforcement. One of the gadgets can be bought now. The other is still raising money to get UL certification.

    Yup, sure does Kay [hope the 255W is still kicking for you]. Remember being answered with this from elsewhere?:
    ........... Although the file name indicates 'safety_camera_australia', it seems Garmin has happily lumped AU & NZ into the same file:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    .........
    In the above link Garmin is definitely offering a combined file which includes both Countries "Cyclops™ Safety Cameras, Australia and New Zealand" but the actual file-naming itself appears to indicate AU only. I've changed my wording regarding the 'AU' file in kenta2's initial post to be clear about it being for both, sorry for any confusion.

    Hello dear forum members!

    I have an garmin nuvi 1490-t and in the files list on the nuvi, i can see no poi folder?

    But yet when i look in about on my garmin it show old Cyclops from year 2009...
    Can i just add an poi folder and copy the gpi files in that folder?

    It is updated with garmin express and the latest CNU europe 2015.
    Just found it strange that it does show garmin cyclops safety camera in about, but there is no poi folder anywhere. Even not with hidden off.

    Thanks for your time for any help!

    Hi folks. I downloaded the us and canada gpi file and dumped it in my POI folder. Is it supposed to show up in my extras? Because the only thing that is showing up is my custom pois.

    EDIT: Nevermind, found it, its in Tools> Settings>System> About under Extras and Safety Cameras.

    Okay i found the hidden system folder already! I forget you also should put the settings ; show protected system files.
    Now i can see the .system folder.

    I succesfully updated my Nuvi 3790, first time it show me river and green while driving around!
    And even warn for red light camera now! Wow!

    Catymag do an good effort for explaining everything.
    I wish i now my nuvi same like you!

    It was a little puzzling the first time, but my nuvi works perfekt and is as new.
    With an sd-card and this handy gps forum, i read and found out everything already.

    My wife very happy with her updated 3790 and me with my 1490!
