Some news.

Next beta version 1.2.7 (106) seems to be available.
New in this version: now it is possible to like or dislike cameras when you pass it and to leave some feedback in camera properties popup.

PGPSW now provides camera database ID, you can see it on the second picture. It is prepended with 'PGPSW' prefix. The number after the prefix is the same as the number in 'GATSO:12345@30' record.

This endpoint
https://api.speedtrap-alert.cc/v1/pgpsw/feedback/?interval=P1M
returns the data collected from the app in JSON format.
At the moment of writing this post it looks like

Code:

[
  {
    "id": "PGPSW166837",
    "entries": [
      {
        "created": "2023-01-23T11:30:51.773",
        "fromMap": false,
        "type": "NotHere"
      }
    ]
  },
  {
    "id": "PGPSW212008",
    "entries": [
      {
        "created": "2023-01-23T11:27:17.803",
        "fromMap": false,
        "type": "NotHere"
      }
    ]
  },
  {
    "id": "PGPSW14223",
    "entries": [
      {
        "created": "2023-01-23T11:26:17.637",
        "fromMap": false,
        "type": "NotHere"
      }
    ]
  },
  ....
  {
    "id": "PGPSW210296",
    "entries": [
      {
        "created": "2023-01-07T20:30:57.167",
        "fromMap": true,
        "comment": "Leo test",
        "type": "Other"
      }
    ]
  }
]

First three reports are made in movement. The last one is made by me on the map.

Sort order - negative feedbacks (Not here, wrong limit, bad location) go first. Then the time is applied.

Possible values of "type" field : "NotHere", "BadLocation", "OppositeWay", "WrongLimit", "Other", "OK".
OK - is confirmation.

"created" field: UTC time of feedback.
"fromMap" field: false - made in movement, true - via camera properties popup.

"interval" parameter in the endpoint URL is the duration in ISO8601 format https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#Durations.
P1M - selects feedback sent last month
P1D - last 24 hours
P6M -last half year
P1Y - last year.


Thanks for this Leo. I'll make a start later in the week to make use of the feedback from these. Would be useful if it could show the username on there somewhere so I can allocate any awards if, for example, a camera is removed based on reports from the app. Possible data protection issues though so maybe a custom variable that only the database admin knows in order to show the usernames?

Could you drop me an email if this is something you think would be feasible?

Just thinking out loud .......

We've had previous issues with users seemingly 'playing' with the CA camera reporting tool which produced many false reports.

Is there a way this can be policed by denying frequent abusers ?

The other issue was by the time a camera has been spotted and the CA reporting tool opened and used it could be hundreds of yards out.

If to speak about STA and its web-backend, there are some policies against obvious flooding of the database with false points.

- each STA instance installed on some device has some random unique ID (GUID) generated at the very first launch.
- STA attaches this ID to every feedback and report sent to the webserver.
- if there were too many reports of new cameras during given interval (last 2 hours), web-backend automatically removes all these points from the database and ignores further reports from this ID for the next 24 hours.
- if there were more than two successive reports with distances less than 100 meters between (points also removed).
- STA by itself doesn't allow to send new camera if the distance covered is less than 100 meters from the first acquired GPS location (many users start the newly installed app, walk around their houses and send dozens of "cameras").

STA takes and keeps immediate location when user clicks the report button. No matter when he clicks "send" button, this location will be used.

This wouldn't be for new cameras. Just 'seen again' and removal requests.

Removal requests for mobile cameras get ignored anyway (unless there is a comment explaining why it can't be a mobile site).

I can't see it being a problem to be honest.

I've recently replaced my phone (now have android 13 instead of 7 Very Happy ) and transferred my STA app across. That seemed to work OK but to be sure I also updated app from the play store. When I tried to update the camera alert database there was a new option to download "Speedtrap Alert 2023" in addition to the usual "Speedtrap alert" file. I tried the 2023 version and the STA app didn't like it! I managed to delete the 2023 version of the database and update with the correct version, but I'm now wondering if there is a new version of STA, and if so is it worth changing to it from ny tried and relied on version?

Don't use 2023 database. It is for current beta version. The difference is that 2023 has camera IDs.

Thanks for such a useful app but is there a way to disable the thumbs up/down popup.

It covers so much of my screen where I have information displayed and I use a different system for recording cameras.

I have searched through the settings (including POI types etc) and just fail to see an option

Thanks

Open app settings, then Advanced settings, and uncheck "Real time alerts".

Hi,

Next beta version 1.2.9 (108) is on the way and awaits Google approval.

What's new:

- voice alerts improvement. Now voice alerts volume can be adjusted independently from the phone music volume. This may affect Android Auto users.

- bug fixes and other minor improvements.

My voice volume has dropped to the point I can hardly hear it, since down loading this last beta......
This is on my Google Pixel 6 Pro.

What is your configuration? I mean using Android Auto or not, BT connection, does the phone stream music.
