I see the Speed camera Data base has been updated, but do not see the version for Iphone, does the Iphone version not get updated? or do I have to get it from somewhere else?

The download and integration will take from 15 seconds on an iPhone 3GS depending on the speed of your data connection.

you should also get a red alert saying there is a newer database on the server. although not perfect, we are working on ways to make this more obvious.
