I am very pleased to announce the Public Beta of MoDaCo CamerAware, my new Speed Camera alerting application.

Full details can be found in this thread in the new dedicated support area for this application, and I have posted an excerpt below.

Enjoy, and please post any feedback in here: http://www.MoDaCo.com/index.php?showforum=142

:lol:

I have decided to release a public beta of this application that I was working on quite heavily in late 2004, as development has slowed somewhat due to real life commitments, and I would like to build up momentum again icon_smile.gif

CamerAware will allow your phone, when connected to a Bluetooth GPS, to provide an ongoing display of your speed and direction, and monitor a database of cameras, providing you with an alert when one comes within range.

Additional features of the application include an ability to log your location to Phone or Storage Card at intervals of 1 second or above, and to upload your position at preset intervals to the http://www.World-Tracker.com service.

perfect! just what I have been looking for, The on screen speed will come in handy. I use tomtom but have always been annoyed that I have to go through countless menus to be able to find my speed.

will install it now and test it on the way home from work.

Thanks Paul!

I wish I had a GPS system :(

There are way too many speed cameras near me and I really hate those grey ones :evil: This app would be great.

GPS now added to my credit card queue :lol:

Thanks Paul.

Just one question though, is this just for Smartphone, or does it work on Phone Edition devices such as the M2000 and Jam? If it does, it might be worth copying the announcement to there as quite a few won't know about it.

Hi Paul, quick test last and CamerAware picked up my GPS and found the database ok.

During a quick drive it reported the camera's by turning the screen red but all I got was the system 'doink' sound. I have found the alert.wav in the \Storage\My Documents\CamerAware\Sounds folder but it did not play this.

I have the program itself installed to my sd-card and it has created the Database, logs and sounds folders in \Storage\My Documents\CamerAware and \Storage Card\CamerAware. Should it create both sets of folders :?:

Also I have my logging options set to every second on the storage card but after checking this morning both log folders are empty.

Nice to see this back to like, keep up the good work.

Ah yes, it is either looking for the WAV file IN THE APP DIRECTORY, or in \Storage Card\CamerAware\Sounds.

I'll fix it in the next release, and yes, you should see CamerAware directories under 'My Documents' in 'Storage' after the first run.

Logging.... did you hit 'Begin Log'? :lol:

PS Please post problem reports in the CamerAware forum :(

Just to say looks interesting so far, will get back with any suggestions

One question- its only being given the GATSO database to work from, should we not merge the SPECS db etc. to get a more complete coverage?

Hi Venomgames, I have not tried it in CameraWare but in its previous incarnation I appended the mobile, redlight and spec's files onto the end of the gatso file and it worked.

Wouldn't it be useful if you could have a speed warning and/or indication verbally. Looking at a speedo is dangerous, especially on a motorbike.

I dont think you would hear it on a bike........... (unless you had earphones in which is even more dangerous/illegal)

Speed warning would have to be tied to road speed limit which is a massive database........
