1 - fixed speed camera;
2 - red light camera;
3 - red light and speed camera;
4 - section camera (average speed control);
5 - mobile speed camera;
6 - railway crossing;
7 - not constant mobile location.

Type 100004 is reserved by the application as an ending section camera. Nevertheless, every second section camera of standard type 4 is also processed as an ending camera.

Each speed trap of different types has its individual warning settings. If your database supports speed traps of non-standard type, you can define it in the application.

Warning settings

Name

Name of speed trap type. Appears in the list of speed traps. Is pronounced in voice alert.

Hint: you can rewrite it in your native language, select appropriate voice in the "voice and sound" settings and listen warnings in your native language. This is valid for English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian.

Speetrap type

This button opens a page for speed trap type (1,2,3,..,7) selection.

First warning

This group of settings specifies how application warns of a newly detected speed trap ahead of the car.

Distance

Maximum detection distance of speed traps of this type. Limited to 2 km (or 1.25 mile with imperial units selected). First warning distance may be shorter, sometimes significantly, in real life. It occurs mainly when the camera is around the strong bend of the road.

Speed limit in voice warning

When this checkbox is checked, application will speak speed limit in first warning.

Distance in voice warning

When this checkbox is checked, application will announce distance to speed trap in first warning. Spoken distance is multiple of 50 meters (or 200 feet with imperial units selected).

Continuous warning

This group of settings specifies how application warns when the car is dangerously close to a speed trap. Continuous warning is a sound that application plays when your speed is unsafe. You can select sound effect for continuous warning in "voice and sound" settings.

Distance

This slidebar sets a distance of dangerous proximity to speed trap.

Speeding over the limit to activate audible alert

"regardless of speed" value means that application will play a continuous sound when car is closer to speedtrap than it is set in "Distance" parameter. "Any excess" value means that application will play a continuous sound when your speed is above limit. Other values (+5, +10, ..) specify safe margin over the limit. If you select "+5 km/h" and speed limit is 50 km/h, application will play continuous sound when your speed is above 55 km/h.
