TomTom Speed Camera FREE app for Smartphone! @ Android

Found 24th JanEdited by:"TheEnglish909"
Found this for free and it's amazing it tells you what street you are in, how fast you are going, the speed for that particular road, when your approaching speed cameras including temporary/hidden or if police are nearby, verbally warns you if you are approaching the limit. It's saved me so many times, get it now for free before they start charging :-)


Available on Android FREE:

1. Search app store for 'Tom Tom Speed Camera'
2. Click install
3. Open the app and you are ready to go.

It helps to buy a cheap smartphone stand for your mobile device they are a few quid from Amazon/eBay.

Remember do not hold your mobile phone whilst driving!

ANDROID: play.google.com/sto…_GB

WARNINGS:

WHAT TYPE OF WARNINGS DOES THE APP GIVE?

Our aim is to give warnings for all situations that can be dangerous, including any roadside cameras, which can result in a fine or other penalty, such as licence points.

The types of warnings can be divided into camera warnings and safety warnings.

Camera warning types are as follows:

  • fixed speed camera: a static camera, which is activated based on driven speed
  • red light camera: a static camera, which is activated based on traffic light colour, in some areas combined with speed
  • average speed zone: two or more static cameras, which measure your driven speed over a stretch of road and is activated when the average speed at the last camera is over the limit
  • traffic restriction cameras: a static camera, which is activated for a number of restrictions (no-right-turn cameras, bus-lane cameras, etc.)
  • speed enforcement zone: multiple static cameras, spread over a stretch of road, which are activated based on driven speed (not average speed)
  • mobile speed camera: a temporary camera (laser or radar, handheld or on a tripod), which is activated based on driven speed (confirmed camera)
  • likely mobile camera: a mobile speed camera (not yet confirmed).


Safety warning types are as follows:

  • speeding: a warning when you exceed the legal speed limit
  • jam ahead: a warning when you are approaching a traffic jam moving at a slower speed than the traffic driving towards it
  • danger zones (only when driving in France): a warning for a potentially dangerous stretch of road, including fixed speed cameras
  • risk zones (only when driving in France): a warning for a temporary potentially dangerous stretch of road, including mobile speed camera (confirmed camera)
  • likely risk zones (only when driving in France): a warning for a temporary potentially dangerous stretch of road, including mobile speed cameras (not yet confirmed)

The 2 scenarios are not analogous. With shoplifting there is always a cost to someone. Either the shopkeeper loses revenue or (possibly and) prices go up and everyone suffers. In many instances of driving faster than 70, nobody suffers as a consequence.

Going faster than the speed limit is no more intrinsically dangerous than driving at the speed limit is automatically safe. Certainly, going faster than the speed limit does not automatically incur a penalty as there is often a margin of error allowed.

You could perhaps consider when the 70 limit was introduced and why? You might also consider countries where there is no limit on certain stretches of road.

I'm not advocating speeding. I generally abide by the law because I respect the concept of the rule of law, not because I agree with every piece of legislation. I also know lots of people who choose to speed under certain circumstances. The comparison with shoplifting is nonsensical.

If only there was an app you could download which would warn YOU when you're about to post a idiotic and sanctimonious comment?

I've added it to the description.
Good post, Good Deal, Thank you 😁

It's free for a reason. Check the bad reveiws on play store. Will stick with Google maps and it's faultless and free.

Nothing wrong with the reviews. You must be looking at the wrong app.

Been using the app for while. Really useful and picks up the camera on the routes I've taken.

This is the speed camera app, not the main TT maps app. It does what Google Maps won't do yet - warn as you approach speed cameras and can be configured to ONLY warn you if you are actually speeding. Works well with and complements Google Maps IMHO, with an overlay on the screen. This TT app has always been free, as I recall.

Also works in average speed camera zones, telling you you average speed and warning when you are over the average speed limit. This is less reliable as the average speed cameras tend to move around a lot (with roadworks) and it take a while for the app to catch up as folk report and re-report it.

Haven't tried the feature in Waze in a while, but when I last tried Waze was less reliable and couldn't warn only if I was speeding, as I recall. And as above with Google Maps, I have used this speed cameras app to complement Waze

Where's the link?
I had this installed a while ago and it was great apart from if you went say 71mph on the motorway it beeped - I know you should not go 1mph over, but would be nice to have it set to say if you go by 5% (73.5mph on the motorway) as I like to keep bang on 70mph as easily creeps to 71mph.
Is THIS the app?

Ahh, spotted it now, thanks.
I would use this with Google maps .. if it works good and behaves well with Google maps as an overlay, then thumbs up from me!
rather use googles app waze
yet to find anything better
Been using Waze for a solid year plus now everyday covering 15,000 miles plus. Can't fault it, thoroughly recommend to everyone(highfive)
Love this app, very useful, only issue I find is that it doesn't keep up to date with changed speed limits

I use it alone with waze since waze isn't able to judge average speed cameras
Overpriced crap now. Used it for years used to pay for the extras, then went Google Maps bad move then Waze great move and free

This isn't the TT Sat Nav app. And how can it be "overpriced" if it's free (just like Google Maps/Waze)?

It doesn't judge your average speed but tells you are are approaching one and there is a distance bar when in the zone

Waze does warn only if speeding. Has done for ages. Waze is more accurate than the TomTom one because it knows your next turn. So it can warn of a camera on the road you’re about to take. TomTom can’t.
Waze is a free app that includes all this, PLUS it’s a navigation app owned by Google that diverts you away from traffic jams!

Google maps is good but it's just lacking any speed warnings or any speed info what so ever.
Thanks
It was free anyway. COOLD

Yes you do use it as an overlay, just means you have to open 2 aps.
Downsides - have had Google maps crash, maybe due to TomTom, and the Tom Tom audio is cut off at the start when approaching speed cameras.

I use Waze also. I find that it saves me so much time and I've learnt so many new routes using Waze.

I've actually dedicated an old phone just for Waze.

Still hear OP for posting.

The thing I like about this is you can put the speed of the road your on on top of Google maps!

I like Waze but find it drains my battery when running. Hopefully this Tom Tom is just as good but less power consumption.
Been using it for a while now in conjunction with Google Maps. works great.
