News: Satnav is dead, long live satnav .... maybe

pocketgpsworld.com
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has confirmed that the standalone satellite navigation system has been removed from its ‘basket of goods’, the system used to measure the UK inflation rate.

Simply put, sales of standalone satnav devices, or Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs) as we may know them, have fallen dramatically in recent years and sales are now so low that they no longer provide a useful measure.

Many more people now rely on smartphone navigation apps or have a built-in satnav in their car and new satnavs sell in far fewer numbers than they did at the peak.

News: Nokia to sell HERE mapping business

pocketgpsworld.com
Nokia has revealed it is considering the sale of its location services business HERE.

In a statement released by the company it said that it "believes this is the right moment to assess the position of HERE within the proposed new Nokia business."

Though the HERE brand may not be familiar to many, its former and more widely known name, NAVTEQ, will be. Nokia bought the company back in 2008 but with their departure from the mobile phone market they no longer need the mapping business which has struggled to make a profit.

Nokia have estimated the value of HERE at 2 billion EUROS, compared with the 5.7 billion Euros it paid for the company seven years ago.

News: Smart Motorway Cameras Catch The Not So Smart

pocketgpsworld.com
According to statistics obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request, speeding tickets issued on the M4 and M5 motorways around Bristol have reportedly skyrocketed from 750 to 23,000 in 2014.

The reason has been put down to the tougher policing of a section of smart motorway in area. The average speed cameras on smart motorways cover varying speed limits - the aim, together with safety, is to improve traffic flow.

News: Possible Jail For Dubai Men Who Insulted Speed Cameras

pocketgpsworld.com
Dubai Police have said that they have captured three drivers on speed camera "flashing their middle finger". All three have been arrested.

It's unclear as to whether the men expected to get away with it - they were speeding past the cameras, registration numbers on view. It can perhaps be assumed, they had the intention of getting caught.

News: TomTom's own speed cam database has been down since 12 Mar

pocketgpsworld.com
Subscribers to TomTom's own speed camera database service may not be aware that their service is having some issues and consequently there has been no database update since 12 Mar!

This is very poor for a service that is only of use if the data is up to date. With three weeks since the last update perhaps we can capitalise on this and encourage one or two of you to sample our data as an alternative?

Android and iOS smartphone owners can download the app for free, this includes one full update of the data (data that's updated daily btw and is bang up to date!). So you can road test it at no risk.

Given TomTom have gone out of their way to trample all over our speed camera service, imitating it, making it harder to use on their devices and now making it impossible to use on their latest models, you'll forgive us for the sly grin when we head they were having issues.
