Thanks Jason for an informative review. One question: how did you secure your Android unit (Hero or Magic?) to dashboard or did you not perhaps do so?

FWIW, I use a 10 sucker mount from Halfords to hold my G1 to the dash, with a 12V charger hard wired into the ignition system. Works well enough, but the CP8 on the G1 certainly works better in portrait mode.

Yeah, I got that update, but it hasn't fixed any of the safety cam issues. I may try it again in landscape mode to see if that's improved at all.

As far as I know it fixed an issue on HTC Hero where it would hang on exiting the application.

What issues are you experiencing?

1. Some cameras don't display, but I do get the audio warnings
2. 'Missing' cameras sometimes do show if I switch to portrait mode
3. Some cameras give multiple (3-7) warnings
4. I pass two cameras on one stretch of road. In landscape, neither display but in portrait they both show. As I get closer to them, the one furthest away vanishes, but gives me 4 audio warnings as I pass it.

There are some other usability grizzles, but I can cope with them for now.
