TomTom Speed Camera FREE app for Smartphone! @ Android

Posted 24th Jan 2018Edited by:"ThickSausage"
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.

Why you want to be warned if you not speeding?
Whats the difference between this and Here?

So why the need to be warned when breaking the law?
had this a while ago and got rid of it as it doesnt show all speed cameras especially mobile cameras so dont rely on this
Waze has this feature
I've been using this for a while, really handy for picking up those stealthy laser Hadecs cameras on the M1 & M6 which don't have road markings.

I use this on my phone, audio overlay to the cars sat nav. Waze will be irrelevant to anyone with Nav in their car already, which is where this is really useful.
Edited by: "steveo42451" 24th Jan 2018
This app is great , put it in overlay mode and fire up Google maps and you basically have the best combined satnav.
this was the best sat nav app but they discountinued it now they keep bringing useless stuff out, just bring back the old good proven sat nav which had everything

You can turn off the beep and just leave on the visual warning.
I recommend the whole sat nav app for about 17 per year

Recently done a 2500 mile round trip and it worked great!
Also free:

Use your eyes and read the speed limit signs! These can be seen full size and not on a small phone screen!!

Indeed but waze doesnt alarm all speed cams
My car already does that. Very useful. Though it takes a road sign for it to detect and figure out the speed and switch.
dribspak24/01/2018 21:33

So why the need to be warned when breaking the law?



Because my friend, sometimes the law is an ass!! Unless you're a tree hugger, you will know that the majority of speed traps are simply there to generate money. Take this area as an example, we have cash generator vans all over the roads where there have been no accidents EVER yet I have never seen them near schools where they may actually be a deterrent... go figure :/

I think it's disgraceful that TomTom effectively protect speeders from prosecution by warning them in advance about the speed cameras, thus endangering other road users.

Surely if the company wanted to demonstrate social responsibility, they would include functionality which would trigger the device running the app to detonate, causing a fiery explosion if the vehicle went over the speed limit.
The flaming wreckage of the car would then roll safely to a standstill, off the road and out of harms way.
Come on software boffins, I can't do all the work.

Maybe reading the road signs and awareness of surroundings will inform you on the speed limit.

As much as I like google maps and use it daily, it’s not faultless.

An update several months ago removed the visibility of the separate arrival times for via points. Previously, you could see how long it would take to travel between the via points. Now, you can only see the overall trip length / time. This feature was crucial for me, but google removed it.

Secondly, they made google maps “complete” journeys prematurely. That is to say, the app frequently shows the journey as complete even with a couple of turns left to take. It’s very annoying.

Waze can’t handle multiple stops. No use for me at all.
You can open this app and have it overlaying Google maps. It's updated all the time by driver's all over the UK

Tempted to get one for my old Samsung Mini to leave docked in the car. How much data do these apps use for people? I know peoples circumstances are different.

Beautifully said. My mum is a good example of this. She always does 60mph in a 70mph zone, and 35mph in a 40mph zone. Yet she'll happily do 30mph in a 30mph zone, with parked cars either side of the road, and kids playing in the street. I always tell her, if a small child runs out behind one of those cars, the chances of not killing it, or seriously injuring someone is very slim indeed. I'm not trying to single her out, this is how many people drive thinking their being safe. But 30mph can be way too fast for some scenarios, and 90mph no problem. Anyone can drive fast, it's knowing when to slow down.
This been out for years and been free the whole time
Do the Tom Tom ap or Waze need a continuous internet connection?
It seems they do
Can people afford hours of Internet connection on their phones?
Both free but Waze contains ads!

Do you have to start the app running like Google maps whenever you drive?
