Just been on a dash from Central London up the A40/M40 and back, and my CamerAlert alerted me of a number of fixed sites that were removed yonks ago when the average speed zone was introduced!

I can only guess you have either an old database or you have 2 databases, again one being old.

As you say, all the fixed sites along the A40 from Marylebone to to M40 are no longer in the database.

Do these show on the submission map?

If not then it may be that you are being alerted to cameras you have submitted yourself but not been cleared from the device. Under manage cameras it would say how many of your 'own cameras' are there and give you the option of removing them.

Thanks for the input. What appears to have happened is that I initiated the latest update, which is 46668 thingies, but for some reason only 46667 got downloaded. Maybe that explains the weird behaviour.
