PostPosted: Thu Oct 20, 2016 1:42 pm    Post subject: Submissions when overseas, etc. Reply with quote

Guys
1)
When I travel abroad, for cost reasons, I do not have data roaming switched on. Because of this any submissions are queued, which is as it should be.
However there is no way (that I can see) of forcing their transmission, for example when wifi is available, or even when back in the UK.
The only way (that has been successful for me) to have them transmitted is by creating a new submission when back in the UK.
Could an enhancement be considered to allow submissions to be sent manually when wifi is available?

2)
Submissions that have been recorded but not yet accepted by your good selves do not appear to give a warning if the camera is passed again.
As there is an option to clear "cameras on phone" when downloading the latest version of the database, the app must be aware of them, so can the app please warn about cameras on phone?

3)
As the only setting that I find I ever have to change is the units (mph to kph and back again), can this option be moved up to the top level of settings, please?

4)
Finally, when the app fell over recently and asked if I wished to send a bug report, the e-mail address was flagged as not working. Might have been a temporary glitch, or may need looking into.

Thanks again for all of your hard work.

Adrian

Is there anyway that the app can be set to use "offline" maps rather than having to have an active data connection to download maps continually ?? Not only would this save data allowance (small but not insignificant), but in regions with a poor/non-existent mobile data connection, the map would not simply go all fuzzy or disappear completely as it does now.

Hi all
Not sure if possible....but, you have got to ask..

In Australia we have school zones at certain times ( 8am-9.30am and 2.30pm-4pm) and several locations there are fixed cameras that adjust the speed limit during this time ie 40km. If outside these times, the camera will revert to the original speed limit ie 60km.

Using this app at present I receive a warning - "variable speed camera ahead"

What would be great if the times, with speed could be inputted...
ie from 8am-9.30am this camera warns "school zone - 40 kms per hour" then outside these times "fixed speed camera ahead- 60 kms per hour ahead"

I have noticed that in the UK you guys have Variable Speed Cameras, but I cannot see if you have timed speed cameras

Anyway just an idea to make this great app better!

Hi JPV,

In the UK, variable speed cameras are generally found on "smart" motorways such as the M25 etc. The speed limit signs are matrix boards that change (reduce) the speed limit from NSL (National Speed Limit, i.e. 70mph for cars that are not towing) to a lower speed limit if there is congestion. The idea is that a reduced speed keeps the traffic moving and reduces the stop/start which cause jams.

Timed speeds for school zones is a great idea, and whilst almost anything is possible it would probably take a lot of coding of the master database and also the CamerAlert App. You'd have to have the two speeds, the four hhmm i.e. one for each time the speed limit changes, and also the days (of the week) that the speed limit changes.

I'll let MaFt answer this one! Thumbs Up

Regards,
