Following on from a very successful initial launch, the new CamerAware release implements a whole host of new features and fixes primarily submitted via user feedback in the CamerAware forum.
The new release follows on from a great start to the month that has already seen several Camera database updates, and a number of incremental updates to 'CamerAware Tracker', the online viewer for uploaded journey data (see it in action on my data at http://www.modaco.co...mid=1&journey=1).
Full information about CamerAware can be found in the 'CamerAware Forum', the 'About CamerAware' topic or the 'Complete guide to getting started with CamerAware' topic.
You can download and install CamerAware for FREE, have a play, take advantage of the position uploading and tracking functionality, and then purchase a licence code at a later date should you wish to activate the Camera warning functionality!
I've included details on the new features in this version below, and a couple of new screenshots.

CAMERAWARE 2.X BUILDS ARE COMPILED AGAINST .net CF 2.0, WHICH MUST BE INSTALLED FROM HERE
For this reason 2.x builds will not be deployed using autoupdate, and must be installed manually. Also for this reason, CamerAware 2.x is not compatible with Smartphone 2003 SE devices.
