Whatever your feelings towards speed cameras, they’re unlikely to go away – and ignoring them could be the end of your driving licence. A number of sat nav systems have started to add software to locate cameras, but now you can add it to your phone, courtesy of Road Angel Mobile.
Road Angel Mobile enables compatible smartphones to warn you of various hazards, such as fixed and mobile camera positions, average speed monitoring areas, accident blackspots, primary school locations and congestion charging zones. Whenever a potential hazard approaches, Road Angel Mobile provides visible and audible alerts to get your attention. It runs on most Nokia handsets using Symbian Series 60 2nd Edition (check here for compatible handsets). In addition, to provide the application with the satellite signal needed, you’ll need to use a suitable Bluetooth GPS receiver, such as the Holux GPSlim 236 or GR230.
You can download it for a limited period for free, with the price rising to £5 at the end of October. In addition, there are data charges of £1.50 per week, charged to your handset.
