TomTom releases update to Speed Cameras app for iPhone

Article by Anita Panait, on November 15, 2012

TomTom has released an update to its Speed Cameras app for iPhone, providing drivers a free 12-month subscription to the Speed Camera service. The Speed Cameras app boasts of new features like the audible and visual speed camera that drivers would receive when the app is running in the background or when the screen is off.

TomTom has also enhanced the average speed check support, helping drivers to stay below the speed limit, even when leaving a tunnel.

The Speed Cameras app for iPhone warns drivers of fixed and mobile cameras on the way, thereby helping them to remain safe and avoid fines.

The app informs drivers of their speed as well as the speed limit in the road they are travelling. The app also informs drivers of the type of camera ahead and the remaining distance left to reach it.

The latest version of the Speed Cameras app provides new and existing customers with 12 months of the Speed Cameras service for free. Existing customers will receive a free extra year of the service when their current subscription expires. Gerry Hinds, Vice-President Mobile at TomTom, said that the company’s Speed Cameras service is powered by a community of 1.6 million drivers, which includes everyone using the app on their navigation device, in-dash navigation system or smartphone.

Hinds said as more drivers share newly added or removed cameras with each other, the service will become better. The latest version of the Speed Cameras app also provides drivers the option to receive warnings for mobile camera hotspots.  The app update also enables drivers to stream audio alerts to the TomTom Hands-free car kit as well as other A2DP Bluetooth compatible devices, to amplify the sound.
