Yes - I saw an article on that - so thought "I'll pop it on my phone!" only to find it was already there! Haven't tried it in Android Auto mode yet though - should have done this morning when I went out.

No Android Auto for me on my Connect but, I do use the AmiGo app on the phone, it works so good and has never failed to pick up those sneaky mobile vans that are painted so not to look like a Police van.

But saying that, I always try and stick to the speed limit of course, but it's good to have a back up to the traffic sign recognition system, especially where speed limits are concerned.

We had a presentation in the village last night from the Camera Enforcement Team and they advised they now have a handheld unit stationed about 400m up the road from the van to catch the people who go slow past the speed van and then speed up again when it's out of sight!

Just seen this topic so I thought I would download it to my phone.....Looks good but the only thing I dont like about it is, you cannot report anything on it like a broken down car on carriageway,accident, mobile camera van just pulled in etc. I think I will stick to waze thanks.Anyone else got any comments/reviews on it?

There is a report option with 4 categories: speed camera, roadworks, jam and road closure. Not as many options as in Waze tho I agree.

@Pandjh...Just had another look and YOU cant report anything. Agreed the app does report those options what you said. You can point me in the direction if you can find it. I have been right through the settings.

There is an icon at the top of the display that looks like a little paddle with a + sign next to it and an ! in it. Press that, select the category, it then asks you to select/tap on the road you are reporting.
