US (only?) camera notification wrong today

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sun Jun 23, 2013 1:23 am

Is anyone else getting camera notifications starting at 1.1mi today? I've gotten two so far in one trip.

So, the 1.1mi notification start is actually at the original and expected .3mi mark. There must be a yard/ft or metric issue squeezing in here. There's no way at 45mph I went 1.1mi in 30sec or so.

Hrm.... Maybe it's the beta I'm using then.

This happened with 3 different cameras to me this evening. Here's 3 screenshots from the app for this camera alert below. The camera is very close to the next turn, so also note the discrepancy between the camera distance compared to the distance to the turn:

I'm getting ready to make a run up to the local 7-11 for lottery tickets berfore it gets too late. There's a RLC about another 2 miles down the road. I'll pass by it and let you know my results when I get back. :)

Okay..Here's my results:

1..Notification popped up saying 480 feet to camera
2..Odometer ticked off ~ 2/10's of a mile from notification to RLC location

So while there is some error of around 500 feet or so, it's not a mile off.

That was a fun little experiment! :lol:
