Info & Downloaden


Hi there.

Are you a native speaker? Would you be willing to help us?
We are very appreciative of translations or pictures/screenshots to help optimize our installation guide. Or any other advice.
Please don't hesitate to write us an email: info@scdb.info. Thanks in advance.


I. Download speed camera files

  1. Make your decision on the download page. We choose these options.

  2. Load and save the file tomtom.zip to your computer.

  3. We save the file tomtom.zip in the Downloads folder.

  4. Unzip the ZIP file. You get the folder tomtom.

  5. The folder tomtom contains speedcam files (file types: OV2 and BMP).
    These files are needed in the next steps.


II. Install POI files by using software MyDrive

    Use that installation method when your TomTom device is not recognized as flash drive.
    At first, load and install software MyDrive from TomTom.
    An account for TomTom is also required. Create a TomTom account if you don't have one.

    Note: Although the POI file is very small, MyDrive needs at least 400 MB of free space in your navigation device (internal drive). To sync OV2 files with your navigation device, your device needs at least 400 MB of free space. The software MyDrive will be unable to sync when you have less free space. We recommend to delete some countries/maps and POI files which are not in use to get more free space. Or upgrade your TomTom device with a larger memory.

  1. Switch on your TomTom device.
    Connect it to the computer by using USB cable.

  2. Click here for this link.
    The TomTom MyDrive website opens in a browser tab.
    Sign in to your TomTom account.

  3. Click Route Planner > My Places > POI files > Import POI file.

    Click Select File and choose OV2 file.

    Click Import.

    Repeat the steps for all OV2 files.

  4. The files will be transfered automatically to the TomTom device.
    Disconnect when synchronization is finished.


III. Activate alerts

  1. Disable TomTom Live Services in your device (Main menu > Services > Speedcams).

  2. Choose the SCDB speedcams in the TomTom menu: Main > Settings > POI settings > Warn when approaching a POI.
    Choose distance value and sound file for your warning.

  3. We do not recommend to activate “only warn when POI is on your route”.

    Our speed camera database works with an accuracy of +/- 20m. Therefore it is possible that the TomTom device won't recognise a speed camera because the program would assume that the speed camera is on the other side of the road due to a slight deviation. In addition there are also many speed cameras that are on the left side of the road but work in both directions or can be swivelled. Therefore, please don't activate this item and all speed cameras will be included in the warnings!


    IV. Alternative instructions

    This guide does not apply to all models.

    1. Right click on the mydrive connect icon in the system tray.
      Select Manage community content.

    2. A browser screen opens.
      Click Add POI.

    3. First add OV2 files and then the BMP files.

    4. And if needed you add your own warning sounds in ogg format.
      Note: Warning sound is not included in the SCDB product.

    5. After your done disconnect your TomTom from PC or Mac.

    6. Open settings: Main > Settings > Warn when near POI.

      We recommend for SCDB_Speed = 350 meters.
      And if wanted select your earlier uploaded warning sound.
      We recommend for SCDB_Redlight = 300 meters.
      And if wanted select your earlier uploaded warning sound.
