News: Is a 40mph Motorway Coming Soon?

pocketgpsworld.com
Just outside of Bristol the M32 changes into the A4032 as it approaches the city. The A4032, like many city roads, has a bus lane. So why, I hear you ask, is this newsworthy? Well, the bus lane is currently being extended another 800m so that it will actually be on the M32 and during the roadworks there will be average speed cameras monitoring the reduced 30mph limit.

Some people involved in the works say that the average speed cameras may be remaining after the works have finished and that there are talks of keeping the speed limit at 40mph instead of the standard 70mph that motorways in the UK have.

News: TomTom unveil CURFER - a car and driver analyser

pocketgpsworld.com
TomTom are busily announcing a raft of new products ahead of IFA Berlin opening its doors tomorrow.

One of the new products is TomTom CURFER, a hardware device that plugs into your cars OBDII port and links to your smartphone to provide feedback on your driving style and your car's performance.

It's an odd product, especially given it will cost 59.00. Are there that many drivers that want to analyse their driving style? The OBDII integration could prove useful, that gives access to a raft of car engine data that is otherwise inaccessible and every car sold in the EU since 2001 has this port fitted.
