    Default SCDB or Cyclop - which is best for Garmin device?

    I see that Cyclop seems to be updated here more frequently but I wonder, which speedcam database would be best to be used, which one is more accurate?

    Cyclops is directional. SCDB is not. Cyclops is higher quality (less false) SCDB is more quantity (user contributed)

    Do not PM me with questions. That's what a forum is for.

    Possibly you've loaded a locked file by itself. Use an unlocked file and place it in Garmin\POI folder. Make sure it's enabled, Tools>Settings>Proximity Points>Change and ensure there's a tick in the box next to 'Garmin Safety Cameras'.

    Yes it is marked "garmin safety cameras.
    But when I go to the extras do not appear the radars, unlike the SCDB that appear the radars. It's normal?
    I also have a problem with SCDB. When I put the new radars SCDB, my GPS gets very slow. Can someone tell me why?
    Best regards.

    SCDB are made using Garmin POI records which is different from Cyclops. They will show just like any user POI files (such as the ones made by PoiLoader)
    How big is your SCDB .gpi file? Post it and I'll look at it.

    Yes, that's normal. Garmin Safety Cameras don't appear in "Where To? > Extras" like SCDB and other custom POIs.

    I also have a problem with SCDB. When I put the new radars SCDB, my GPS gets very slow. Can someone tell me why?
    Reset the device. Back up your favorites "current.gpx" in GPX folder if you want to keep them. To restore later, rename it "temp.gpx" and drop it back in the GPX folder.

    Hello osiris4isis.
    The file I own is the last Official SCDB Speed camera for Garmin _ 07 Aug 2017
    I had to delete it because the GPS was very slow and re-enter SCDB WORLD Spa_PorMay 05 2017 and SCDB WORLD FranceMay 05 2017 (France and Iberia are the ones I need).
    The problem is that the mobile radars do not appear on the 5th of May.
    I did not realize what is the difference between cyclops and SCDB maps? Radars are radars so I do not understand.
