Today I was driving along the a55 in Wales I have. A road angel connected and PGPSworld on iPhone and on three occasions the camera database said mobile camera speed limit 30 ona 70 road

Don't know if you guys know about the fault or is it picking up other roads in the vicinity

That.

Happens from time to time. I know a couple of spots on motorways where you get 30 mph alerts. You can try messing with the Warning Parameters

Gear Icon (bottom right)
Warnings
Click the arrow above the end of the Default Range Slider
Here you can change some parameters for "detection". There is a detailed desciption of what each parameter does.... I've left them alone and just use common sense and my eyes...

The app uses a warning 'cone' so it can, on occasion, pick up cameras and alert for them when they are located on roads running close and parallel to your road.

I lower each of these by 5 (40, 40, 45) and that seems to reduce a lot offalse positives.

Mine set to 35, 35, 50 but will try yours.


Not that it's a real issue.
