It's not bad but we do have users here who subscribed to it on their Garmin device and found ours more accurate.

Of course to be entirely fair, I'll leave others to comment as I'm biased!

i have used both pgpsw and cyclops (via garmin) - i found the cyclops to be quite out of date.

a friend of mine also has a cyclops camera detector (not a sat nav, just the 'detector' itself) and he moans about cameras not being on there for aaaaages! even when he reported them to him. apparently cyclops get their data from RAC drivers so presumeably places in the sticks where no one breaks down (like ogden partway between halifax and thornton) dont get many cars breaking down and hence no RAC coverage. the result: cyclops didn;t have the gatso's on that road in their database for about 2 years after they were installed - and then i believe it was only from my mate emailing them numerous times to add them!!

Very interesting, although I can't find anything in print, Cyclops always claimed their data came from a partnership with the RAC and it's Recovery Service Teams Confused

hmmm... i retract my statement then! thanks for the clarification!

@Darren: all i could find in 'that' communication with Cyclops was mention of 'verified by our field engineers'...
