Hi can you add the direction the camera is facing as with the direction of traffic flow. When reporting cameras.
Ie.mobile Camera the other side but gunning this side.
Cheers
Dave

Can you not just say that it was on 'this side' of the road. That will surely get the heading right. Also be careful about 'the direction the camera is facing' as mobiles generally 'face' in the opposite direction to the direction in which you would be 'caught' i.e. they catch you whilst approaching; and it is the latter direction of travel that is needed in the database.

when your passenger captures a new camera while you are driving the direction of your travel is recorded and assigned to the new camera. As already mentioned you can also tell the program that the camera is actually 180 degrees from that.

If you record the camera while standing still then the direction will not be accurate. You can mention the direction in the voice notes.
