Mio is a sat nav unit.

Yes we are aware of the GAtso issue this is still down to the the database been built incorrectly . The identifier for kmph or mph is mixed up with the camera type hence why everything is coming up GATSO .

You can reaasure yourself by editing the file and swapping the data while it gets fixed.

WLMOATE, Is your Avatar you in despair helping to sort out the database, or are you beating up the DS unit?

Hello MaFt,

the DriveSmart Team's most recent comments about SPECS seem to me to indicate that we could include a so-called 'start' entry in the database for each SPECS camera that falls within a particular set of such cameras. And, as you have pointed out, indicating the end of a set of SPECS cameras, by giving the last one a 180 degree direction reversal.

Given that the DS team recently released database 'Europe_111006.csv', I wonder if any other DS owners have had a chance to analyse this data and can confirm how we should code for SPECS.

I have looked at numerous SPECs in the DS database and the end point is rotated 180 degrees.

right then, version 3 has just been uploaded and now reverses the heading data for the 'end specs'

remember, not many of the specs have marked start and end points and the full list can be seen in the DS Readme file in the download.

i'm 99.99999999% certain that the format is correct now:

DS database: -0,06808;53,48969;60;1;9;183
PGPSW database: -0,06824;53,48973;60;1;9;185

= mobile:7846, 60mph, single dir, mobile(9), heading

so the following format has been used:
Longitude; Latitude; Speed; single/both direction; Type; Heading

PLEASE REDOWNLOAD THE DATABASE (AGAIN!) TO GET THE MOST UP TO DATE VERSION FOR DRIVESMART

According to DS the info should be as follows

Long/Lat/speed limit/1 = mph 0 = kmph/camera warning type/direction camera is facing

that's why i never went so far as saying 100% ;) i was under the impression that the 4th column was to say whether the camera was single direction or both ways.

so how does the DS deal with cameras that can face both ways? or doesn't it?

so, basically the 4th column should ALWAYS be 1 for the uk (mph) database?

if you can confirm then i'll get it changed (again) - there will be a database release by the end of this week anyway so will probably release the DS one slightly early (tomorrow) for testing and then release an updated one with all the rest.

we'll get there in the end! all we need now is info on start and end points for the specs but i'm going to post a request for this info in the forums.

Hi, if you click on the link beneath the "We need you" icon at top left of the page then can enter the map , locate these cameras noting their ID number and then clicking on the "Submit Single Camera Information" link you can then input the camera ID and change the details etc as required and then submit this form. Repeat these steps for each camera location and then the information you submitted will be included in the next updated database is realeased. If everyoe does this when they spot a new camera location or spot a mistake in the current database then the next database will be that much more accurate for our members.

"whitworth rd swindon" on the map this is shown as a mobile van?

the entry in the 'csv' file is: -1,78525;51,58359;30;1;9;82

which breaks down to: lon ; lat ; speed ; mph ; type(mobile) ; heading 82

unless of course the required format has changed?!


one of the specs is: -1,55695;51,48204;50;1;11;305

'11' being 'specs start'
