Hi
I made a little application for my personnal use : Roadrunner
It alerts You when You're approaching a speed camera (beeps and LED blinks)
Speed cameras locations are available for United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and Sweden.

Looks good, does the speed camera info include the direction (i.e. do you get false positives when going under/over bridges, or parallel to roads, or in the other direction?).

Also, does the db include the speed limit at the speed camera location?

Ah, is the source anywhere, or is this closed-source?

Actually, I've no internet connection at home.
When I get it, I can open a project on maemo garage.

The application alerts You when you're approaching a speed camera and stops when You're going away.
You can have false positives (I don't know the side of the road, bridges, etc....)
The free database ( basic access on http://www.gpsinform.com) does not include speed camera.
Roadrunner does not support the premium database.

Sweet application, I could find myself having a big use for this (shame I don't live in any of those countries though).

Hi David,
Do you know about FoxyTag? Quite a lot similar to what you have done...
(http://www.foxytag.com/en/presentation.html)
I'd love to see a widget or app on maemo using foxytag database

rzr:
I 've added the sources on my website today
But I don't think if it works (I didn't work on roadrunner since 1 year...)
RF -> fixed speed cameras
RFR -> I don't remember...
RM -> mobile speed cameras
ZD -> dangerous zone
You don't need to import all ov2 files

Kee:
I will look at foxy tag

I planned to rewrite roadrunner from scratch as soon as I receive the N900.
I will open a project on maemo garage.

For someone like me who a few years ago lost a close friend to someone speeding down a road an application like this that indirecty supports and promotes speeding is both sad and maddening.

Now you won't 'just' be speeding but also fiddling with a tablet in the car.
