Wayfinder has announced the launch of its SpeedAlert speed detection tool, that will turn any mobile phone into a speed and safety camera detector.
The SpeedAlert software can be downloaded over-the-air to a mobile phone, with no need for a PC, and once running needs no further input from the driver.
It uses GPS to note the car’s position in relation to its database of over 17,000 safety camera locations, and can give visual and audible warnings of approaching traffic observation areas, including speed and red-light cameras.
Warnings of active safety cameras are given at least 20 seconds before reaching the camera’s location.
The software can also be used to show the maximum speed limits in countries throughout Western Europe. Drivers can also set their own maximum speed level.
Launched this month, a lifetime’s subscription to the software and 12 month’s access to the camera database is available for £54.99 or can be purchased with a bundled Wayfinder Sirf III GPS receiver for £109.99.
