2013-03-20 11:15:57 - This new and free Android application warns its users before encountering speed cameras, red light cameras, average speed cameras and even police traps.
BoBCam uses the worldwide FoxyTag database which is already used by many other systems and with a growing number of users.
The application can be used offline as it has an updatable database containing 40’000 speed cameras worldwide. If the phone has a network access the application will use the FoxyTag server to get more reliable information.
The user is warned by an alarm 15 seconds before encountering a speed camera. When the user is in an average speed section the application shows the remaining distance and the speed he should do to stay under the average speed limit.
It is possible to tag new speed cameras by marking the spot as having a camera. Users can confirm speed cameras but
they can also remove a speed camera that doesn’t exist anymore.
Key features of BoBCam include:
• Warn users of: speed cameras, red light cameras, mobile speed cameras, average speed cameras, ghosts (a place where there are often mobile speed cameras).
• Completely free.
• When in an average speed section the speed display adapts to let the driver know if his average is too high.
• Supports imperial and metric units.
• Uses the FoxyTag database.
• Offline mode (can be used even with no network).
• Works in all countries.
FoxyTag’s collaborative model makes it the most complete and up-to-date speed camera database in the world. FoxyTag motivates neither speeding nor any other risky behaviour, but allows the driver to concentrate on the road and not on his speedometer for fear of being flashed.
