Speedcam and speed control

Postby Armandfumal » Tue Nov 26, 2013 4:12 pm

HI,

It would be very helpfull to have a real notification with specific sound and big red popup that announce the control...
like http://www.coyotesystems.co.uk/

because today, the alert of radar control is not enougth loudly and visualy, you can miss it.

regards
Armandfumal

I believe something like this has already been suggested before. As far as loudness, you might want to look into purchasing an external speaker for your mobile device

I second this request.

Professional speed alert, like radardroid pro, is extremely desirable.

What is missing:
CONTROL over the alerts:
When you want to get alerted?
- Always, above speed only, 90% + from speed limit
- Type of speed traps to be alerted: Fix, mobile, red light, Average speed
- How long before the trap: in meters, variable with speed, in seconds (estimated) before you pass.

HOW you are going to get alerted:
- Option to have different alerts based on your speed (over/under limit)
- Option of a LOUD buzzing noise (specially if over speed limit)
- Option for Big RED alert on the screen with clear read of the speed of the trap.
- Option of AUDIO alerts, even if the screen is off, on which the speed is announced.

other desirable features:
- easy way to "mute"/"occult" a trap (for your personal use only, in cases you are too familiar and don't need to be reminded)

+1 for more control options for speed alerts

There are several situations on my routes, where you come from a segment with lower speed and you reach a a segment with a speed cam where higher speed is allowed. So you never get an acoustic notification but if you accelerate to much, the speed cam will get you.
Again and again we have user requests around speed cams with "alert is not working", not only on those with the described situation. So a client option - as paial requested - with speed cam alert "Always" and "Only if you're above speed limit" would be nice.

Thx

Been wishing for an ALWAYS alert option for a long time. Got nailed the other day while overtaking. I had passed the audible alert point while still below the limit, and was of course over after overtaking but received no warning.

Any way to vote up feature requests?

+1, hate it when it doesn't alert because I'm not speeding at the moment and then choose to later on. I could see this being really useful.

Another good reason - how can we be sure that what Waze considers the speed limit to be still holds true?

Particularly here in Spain, speed limits are not always fixed. They can change based on traffic or time of day (never really figured out the rhyme or reason behind this tbh).

+1 To this initiatives.
I would add the possibility to chose to add a small icon with the speed limit of the way in the screen.
Specially in Spain there's not very much speed limit signals, so sometimes you don't know which is in the way you are.
Thank you very much.

I absolutely encourage you to add this feature. Just last week I got a speeding ticket because I was accelerating to overtake a car. I did not get an acoustic warning but when I had a look at the screen I saw the speed cam icon.
And to raise the point from the previous community member, here in Germany, we have more and more speed cams which have a dynamic speed limit and they work according to the limit which is set at the moment.
Cheers
