[APP] Speed Camera DataBase SCDB
« on: September 17, 2011, 01:24:35 »
Menion - First thank you for the fantastic Locus Pro. I want to share some tools that help with Locus. This is the free App in Android Market › Transportation › Speed Camera DataBase - SCDB by Eifrig Media <blitzer.de>. While navigating using your Vector maps in Locus Pro with Guide On, SCDB  runs in the background and alerts you as you approach mobile and fixed speed traps. The SCDB database of over 40,000 fixed speed cameras is quite good except it does not know which direction a camera is facing.

I would like to show the location of the speed cameras on Locus. SCDB creates a 2.23 MB blitzer.sqlite database in root /data/data/de.blitzer/databases but I do not know how to use this.  As an alternative I have found a GB-SectionCameras_iGO.kmz file and loaded this into Locus and can see various points with numbers such as 30, 50 but this data is not complete and I do not know how to display them as road signs on the Vector map. Can anyone help show the different cameras with the correct icon in Locus Pro? I think I need to start by downloading icons such as these http://http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/gerryc/camera-icons/index.html (but they are .bmp) or these http://http://mapicons.nicolasmollet.com/markers/transportation/road-signs/speed-limit/and follow your instructions in http://http://forum.asamm.cz/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=55 [MANUAL] - adding custom icons to categories. Any help would be appreciated and all of us could benefit if we can see Speed Cameras in Locus Pro!
Cheers
Tom

Now I can see Speed Cameras as POI in Locus. Follow these steps:
1) Download Speed Camera KMZ file - for example I used one from SCDB
2) Download Speed Camera icons - either the ones in the file or you can use any others (provided you change the name) such as the ones in this post:

3) Follow [MANUAL] Convert an existing KML/KMZ for offline use

4) Import KMZ and display POI
5) Drive within the speed limit!

Yes, broadly speaking a speed camera flash is the same as a normal camera flash. It depends on the type of camera as to which way it faces. Hopefully it was another car being flashed!

Is a speed camera flash the same as a normal camera flash? I noticed a flash to the drivers side of my car the other day, curious to know would this have been a photo camera or a speed camera? Or do speed cameras only take front or rear photos , and you would see the flash from the front or rear depending on where the photo was taken?(this was during the day) Any ideas?
