TomTom speed camera app now available as free download
The app offers real-time fixed and mobile camera alerts said to be highly accurate, as well as average speed checks. The app also only alerts for cameras on the road that is being driven on, minimising false alarms.
Fixed camera locations are provided by TomTom’s database, and verified by a TomTom moderation team, while mobile speed cameras are community-reported and community-verified. The app can also run in overlay mode, which means that drivers can still contribute to the community and receive alerts while using other apps.
Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom consumer, said: “By launching the TomTom Speed Cameras app for free, we want to welcome more drivers into the TomTom community. Already, 4.6 million drivers are working together to report and verify speed camera locations in real time – and now all Android smart phone owners can join us to make driving a more relaxed experience. We have focused on reducing driver stress, by designing a clean and simple app which minimises false-alarms for irrelevant cameras.”
The TomTom Speed Camera app for Android is available as a free download on the Google Play store.
