Would help for the coolingproblems as well! But what asterix proposes - disabling the speedcamfunctionality from the SERVER side - seems legal to me. You take Waze over the border and - poof!, speedcams gone, nothing you can do. Would hold in court.

*When crossing a border without roaming selected, you'll find that nav and phone services still work even though you're well over 10km inside the other country. I.o.w. the system has not yet recognized that you are in another country. And as long as it hasn't it will not disable the speedcam functionality, and you will be breaking the law...
