Does the current SCDB database for Mercedes COMMAND negate the need for this POI loader?Theoretically, yes, because the SCBD (MB SpeedCams) contains a very big number of items that are already added to the database. According to the description posted on the [official website], SCDB contains 65.000 stationary safety cameras and it supports 30000 POI items. The loader will probably transfer the POI items, but the SCDB should be more than enough. Visit their website to learn about the contents, upgrades and general information.
MB POI Loader is a free program that will help you build a custom POI file with any type of POIs for your Mercedes-Benz command system. The tool will take any collection of POIs around the world, in the Google Earth format and generate a ready-to-use POI file that you can save on an SD card.
