There are 3 different methods to install speed camera POIs:
Method 1: Copy POI files into map folder
Method 2: Route planner by MyDrive
Method 3: Add community content with MyDrive
Notes for method 1
Older TomTom devices are shown as flash drives in your computer. You only need to copy and paste speedcam files into the map folder.
Use this method also for devices with SD cards (e.g. Mazda NB1, Mazda Navigation AVN1).
Notes for methods 2 and 3
New TomTom devices are not shown as flash drives in your computer. In that case you have to use software MyDrive Connect for connecting device and computer. We cannot say if method 2 (Route planner) or method 3 (Add community content) will work with your device. Please try both methods. Examples:
TomTom VIA 135M _ version 12.075.3065980.84 _ use method 3
TomTom START 20 _ version 12.075.3065980.84 _ use method 3
TomTom START 25 _ version 12.075.3065980.84 _ use method 3
Find your version here: Settings > Me and my device > About my device.
We are very appreciative of your version and feedback. Thanks in advance!
Use this method when your device is shown as a flash drive in your computer.
Switch on your TomTom device.
Connect device to computer. Wait till connection is ready.
Open Windows Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac).
TomTom device should be shown as flash drive in your computer.
Copy and paste unzipped OV2 and BMP files into your map folder.
Disconnect device from computer.
Go forward to capter 5: Enable alerts.
Use software MyDrive Connect when your device is not recognized as flash drive.
Switch on your TomTom device.
Connect device to computer.
Start MyDrive Connect.
Register your TomTom in My devices.
Open link: https://mydrive.tomtom.com.
TomTom website opens in a browser tab.
Sign in to your TomTom account.
Click Select File and choose OV2 file.
Repeat the steps for all OV2 files.
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.
Go forward to capter 5: Enable alerts.
Right click on MyDrive Connect icon in the system tray.
Select Manage community content.
Open link http://169.254.255.1/pcmi/.
Note: The link can only be opened if the device is registered in MyDrive Connect and correctly connected to MyDrive Connect.
TomTom website will open in a browser tab.
Updating your device.
Click associated BMP file. For example: SCDB_Section_20.bmp (SCDB_Abschnitt_20.bmp).
First POI file has installed with icon.
Note: The appearance and menus may look different. It depends on device and software version.
If necessary browse through all menus of your device.
Go to Main > Settings > POI settings > Warn when approaching a POI (Einstellungen > POIs verwalten > In der Nähe des POI warnen).

Choose approaching distance: 500 meters.

Repeat last steps for all SCDB categories.
At the end, check the entire list for your own safety.
Only POI categories with a speaker icon bring an acoustic alert.
Checkmark all SCDB POI categories.
Speedcams are shown in map with associated icons.
Note:  is the speedcam ID. Find that speedcam in our speed camera map.
Repeat all steps of the guide above to update speed cameras in your device.
Advice: Select always same countries (step 1) and icons (step 2). So you get always files with identical file names.
This makes overwriting very easy.
Update with method 1
Copy and paste new OV2 and BMP files to your map folder. Overwrite pre-existing older files.
Update with method 2
Import new POI files according to instructions above: Route Planner > My Places > POI files > Import POI file.
Update with method 3
Import new POI files according to instructions above: Add community content to my device.

Because it may happen that new POI categories have been added.
Monthly updates will be recommended.

Attention: Do not delete system files!
Attention: Do not delete file with unknown content!
