Free GPS Software

http://www.waze.com/

for smartphones etc

with free realtime traffic etc info and speed cameras

I have created a group on there for EF'ers as well, so download and join up

also has some sort of lame game attached to it, not quite sure what thats all about, but the traffic info is excellent, the more people who use it the more accurate it becomes.

Re: Free GPS Software

if the gps program knows the position of the fixed cameras, why is it illegal?
Didn't you mean laser blocking-signing devices?

No, it's illegal for your satnav to warn you of the location of speed cameras in Switzerland. Se an old thread here: Navigation systems that warn of safety cameras and mobile speed surveillance banned!
