II. Download of the database

    Attention: Mercedes COMAND Online devices have a limit of nearly 30.000 POIs.
    For Mercedes COMAND Online, all countries worldwide are available for database downloads. But the database for “Europe” would exceed this limit. We advise you to only choose countries you really travel to. You can use the statistics page for the estimation about which countries you want to choose in order to not exceed the limit.

  1. Select your preferred countries.
    Choose several countries through pressing the CTRL-key.

  2. Select how to split the database.

    You get many files for different camera types with Split into all categories.
    You get only two files for speedcams and redlights if you choose Split into speed cameras and redlights.
    Or choose All safety cameras in one category. With that option you get only one file (POI category) to install in your device.

    Note: Each options includes the identical number of speedcams.

  3. Click Download now.
    Save the file mercedes-comand-online.zip to the hard disk of your PC.

  4. Unzip the file mercedes-comand-online.zip with a suitable program.

 

III. Load speed cameras into NTG devices

  1. Reformat a SD card as FAT32 (not: FAT or exFAT).
    Do not use quick format.

  2. Create a folder names PersonalPOI on the SD card.

  3. Copy and paste all unzipped GPX files into the directory SD-CARD/PersonalPOI.

    e.g. 1: Split into all categories

    e.g. 2: All safety cameras in one category

  4. Remove the SD card from the computer.

  5. Insert the SD card into the SD slot of your COMAND Online device.

  6. Switch on the ignition.

  7. Go to NAVI > Options > Personal POIs.
    The import of all POIs can take a while. Be patient.

    Enable the following options: Audible + Visual + imported SCDB categories.

  10. During your drive the speedcam icon will appear into the map.
    Unfortunately, you cannot change the icon. Importing of own icons is impossible in Mercedes COMAND Online devices.

  11. The SD-card has to remain inserted while driving.
    It's impossible to transfer the POIs into the internal storage.

    Who can send pictures with English menu to optimize the guide?

  8. The screens shows all POI categories on the USB-stick.

    Note: In our example we installed only one POI category (SCDB_Ampel_50). You certainly have more.
