    ? Garmin Smartphone Link Autovelox

    I was wondering if the velox subscription you can buy on the Smartphone Link app it's the same as cyclops and (if not) what are the differences between this two.
    I was also wondering how the velox subscription on the Smartphone Link app works...are the velox downloaded on your gps everytime you connect it to your phone(and they stay there) or do they only work with the phone connected???
    And is "live coverage" of velox included (i get report from other user and they get report from me)?????

    I also checked on the garmin website but it's not clear at all. Can somebody help me out please?

    EDIT: I found this: "Smartphone Link also enhances Garmin's standard safety camera alerts with Speedwatch data, which provides real-time updates for fixed, temporary and average speed cameras, mobile zones and red light cameras together with "crowd-sourced" mobile speed traps reported by Speedwatch customers." This basically contradicts (at least in part) what garmin wrote on the smartphone link app....this is driving me crazy!!!

    I found this:
    The Autovelox service is provided by SPEEDWATCH speed cameras in cooperation with Cyclops - The service includes not only signals of fixed locations and mobile speed camera locations but also the entire community SPEEDWATCH & Garmin reports - in order to ensure a safe trip, and without exceeding the speed limit.

    Ok, at the end of the day i bought the subscription. It doesn't replace garmin cyclops but it's an addition to it and, more specifically, it allows you to be part of a community called "speedwatch" where you can warn and receive live warning of speed cameras.
