News: Google updates Street View

pocketgpsworld.com
Google updated Street View yesterday and there are a number of cool changes.

A new satellite mode, taken from Google Earth, gives you a satellite view with imagery taken from orbit.

Another new features allows members of the "Trusted Street View Photographers" program to market their services. If you're not a member then this option will not be available.

Search results now utilise two lines when auto-completing search results to make it easier on the eye and also make the results more easily digested. And there are a raft of minor UI changes.

The update is rolling out now.

Six speeding bikers, who used their own personal versions of speed cameras, delivered themselves into the hands of Bedfordshire Police.

The riders, who were doing wheelies, swerving in and out of traffic and reaching speeds of up to 146 mph, filmed their antics with GoPro cameras on one of the bikes. This obviously proved very useful to the authorities when they caught up with them.

Get Speed Camera Warnings For Android (phones and tablets)

Over 5000 motorists were caught speeding by Suffolk’s A12 average speed cameras in the first five months of this year. They have only been in operation since October last year.

It's likely that many think these point-to-point cameras aren't actually turned on.

Also it's thought that non compliance can be blamed on driver's lack of concentration or ignorance as to how they actually work.

News: Wales football fans follow satnav to WRONG Lille!

pocketgpsworld.com
Oh dear. A football mad couple heading to watch a Euro game flew to Brussels, picked up a hire car then programmed their destination as Lille, Belgium rather than Lille, France, just 90mins away over the border.

They only realised their error when they arrived in the small Belgium town and noticed the lack of fans and a stadium.

The navigation error meant they missed the Russia v Slovakia match and, sadly, Wales are now out too.

Prior preparation and planning??

News: TomTom launch TRUCKER 6000 Lifetime Edition

pocketgpsworld.com
Given the plethora of stories where HGVs have become wedged in narrow village streets and lanes there must be a huge market for truck specific satnav devices.

So TomTom's TRUCKER 6000 Lifetime Edition should find a queue of customers desperate to reduce the risk and stress of coming a cropper. It delivers vehicle specific route guidance along with lifetime traffic and map updates (for the lifetime of the device) and has a built-in SIM that will even work abroad without roaming charges.

Drivers can pre-plan their journeys via the MyDrive app and calculated routes take into account the weight, type, size and even cargo. If you drive or operate a fleet of HGVs then equipping them with truck specific satnav seems like plain common sense surely?

The TomTom TRUCKER 6000 Lifetime Edition is available to purchase now, priced at £399.99.
