Interesting thread and a nice new app work around for the Cameralert problem for us Samsung users, just about to pay for the full version
You will still have to pay for the 'full version' as your subs is to access the database not to use CA. Use the database on any device = pay subs.


I think he means that he's paying for the full version of STA. I did the same, it's good to support such a responsive developer.

a)Bit of a n=mouthful but if you can think of some thing better, please post it,
An example clarifies . Camra speed 30 MPH speed difference... 35MPH. Aletrt will not sound unless you are exceding 35MPH

b)If you are still over the camera speed + diff (35 in above) then a second alert will sound. In your case at 1/8 mile.

C) Intermittent low beep in range of camera (700 yds in your example)
d)Beeper will not sound unless you are going faster than 10MPH.

Turn the speed limits on and get the UK road data database (It's called something else that I can't remember but in the settings)
The device will then warn you as you are approaching a speed limit area that is lower than the one that you are currently driving.


Thanks M8TJT for that think I see it better now also to Kremmen for his reply.
I did download the Great Britain road network file I presume this is what you mean.

You're correct nhaliday I too agree it is good to support the developer in this.

What are the effects of the next settings
a) speed difference to speed limit to activate audible alert at the moment I have this set as any.
b) speed excess warning at the moment it is set at 1/8 mile
c) beeper distance at the moment set at 700 yards and
d) speed to activate beeper at the moment set at 10 mph

At the moment I have the speed limits section turned off.


a) example: speed limit is 30, the "speed difference to speed limit..." slider is set to -5 mph. Voice alert will appear at speed higher than [limit]+(-5 mph) = 25 mph. If you move slower than 25 mph, the app displays only the popup banner. If your speed becomes higher, the app speaks about the camera.

b) when a car is closer to a camera than this value, the app gives alert signal if speed is above [limit] + [tolerance]. Default tolerance is zero, but can be adjusted as %+mph. When the distance to the camera is larger, there are no signals for speeding.

c) this slider sets the distance when beeper begins to bleep, but not before a camera was detected. It may look strange that this distance is twice larger than first warning distance. The secret is that beeper distance is fixed, but first warning is variable, and in ultimate case real first warning distance may be twice larger than its slider specifies.

d) beeper shuts up at lower speeds so as not to annoy the driver.


speed limit section is strongly recommended for average speed check.
