Speed camera campaigner, Mike Burns, has complained that speed cameras that have ticketed hundreds of drivers across Tayside are not following prescribed guidelines.

The rules, as set out in a handbook distributed in May 2015, says that mobile speed cameras: "must be publicised before enforcement commences and should be updated on relevant web pages and through social media and press releases".

News: Irish satnav review - "The greatest heap of sh**te"

pocketgpsworld.com
Most of us have experienced frustration with voice activated gadgetry but the irishman in this video was having less luck than usual as the BMW nav system struggled to interpret his accent.

The video, filmed from the rear seat, shows him beginning with a simple request to plot a new route but as the system struggles to understand his frustration grows and I suspect that were it not for the fact that it's built-in it might have been enjoying retirement in a hedgerow!

The language is 'colourful' so turn the speakers down if you're in the office or have young children nearby!

News: SSTL delivers final Galileo payload

pocketgpsworld.com
And in more Galileo news, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) has announced the delivery of the 22nd and final navigation payload to OHB System in Bremen.

Every one of the Full Operational Capability (FOC) payloads, the heart of a Galileo satellite, has been built and tested at SSTL's Guildford facility and contains atomic clocks, navigation signal generators and high power travelling wave tube amplifiers and antennas.

SSTL has been responsible for the development, assembly, integration and test of the 22 navigation payloads, the first was delivered in 2012 and since then one payload has rolled off the production line every six weeks.

Dr John Paffett, Director of Telecommunications and Navigation at SSTL, commented "The completion and delivery of the 22nd payload for FOC marks another milestone for SSTL, and I must pay tribute to the talented and dedicated FOC team here who have worked tirelessly to keep the production line rolling for the past four years."

News: Upper stage fuelled in prep for next Galileo launch

pocketgpsworld.com
The Fregat upper stage of the Soyuz launcher, that will lift VS15 with the next two Galileo satellites into orbit on May 24th, has been fuelled at Arianspace's Spaceport processing facility.

Fregat, built by by NPO Lavochkin, is used to inject the two satellites into their geosynchronous orbits. Its propulsion systems are capable of being restarted and in a Galileo orbit insertion Fregat performs an initial burn followed by a three hour ballistic coast before a final ignition to reach a circular orbit at which point the two Galileo satellites separate.

Regular readers will recall that it was a problem with this stage during the VS09 launch that lead to the partial loss of Galileo-FOC FM1 and Galileo-FOC FM1 satellites. An independent enquiry board traced the cause to a design failure which resulted thruster propellant line freezing. The design has since been modified to prevent this recurring.

The upper stage will now be integrated with its payload, the latest two full operational capability (FOC) satellites Galileo-FOC FM10 and Galileo-FOC FM11 before the payload fairing is attached ahead of the May 24th launch. VS15 will be followed by two more launches this year bringing the 2016 launch total to six Galileo satellites.

News: TomTom update breaks its own camera alerts

pocketgpsworld.com
A major oops from TomTom with news that an application update has broken its own speed camera alert function.

We've had a number of users report the loss of speed camera warnings following installation of software version v16.1. TomTom have acknowledged the issue in a post on their forum and suggested a reset can resolve this in some cases but a full fix will require another software update.

There is currently no ETA on when a fix will be available.

News: Mounting satnav on windscreen a threat to safety

pocketgpsworld.com
GEM Motoring Assist claims that 'thoughtless positioning' of satnav devices in windscreens is a 'huge threat' to road safety with today's ever larger screens causing a potentially lethal reduction in driver visibility.

GEM chief executive David Williams MBE said,"Sat nav devices are great for relieving a lot of motoring stress. But if in the process you’re obscuring a vast swathe of your field of view, then you are taking a huge risk."

But careful consideration when mounting the device can reduce or remove the issue completely, place it as low as possible to ensure your view of the road is unobstructed. Mounting it slap bang in the centre of the windscreen or even directly in front of your eyes (and yes I've seen this!) is patently stupid and dangerous.

GEM Motoring Assist has assembled a list of things to consider when choosing a location for your satnav, see the source link below.
