    France will install in 2005 install 1000 radars

    Here is an overview of all radar which are known by www.radarfalle.de

    What You can do...

    Buy a GPS device, and install a POI software (Point of Interest) to be warned when You are in a proximity of a fix street radar.

    Point-Of-Interest visually and acoustically warns you of POIs as you approach them. Speed cameras, petrol stations, restaurants are only some exaples for POIs.

    What You can not do...

    • Using a device, to detect actively street radars (Laser, or dopler), except in UK
    • Using a device, perturb the operation of street radars (scrambler)

    How to enter a new camera position

    For an up to date database, the system is only working as long as You receive daily update of safety camera positions, Here is how to enter a new camera position with TomTom device.

    Sticky: 'Idiots guide to adding speed cameras'
    extract of the forumwww.expansys.com
    Further guide to help those who want to maximise the use of Tom Tom Go who may not be computer whizzes. Object is to encourage as many as possible to become "accurate camera spotters" so that the camera database is as accurate as possible.

    If you only want to update your own machine follow 1 below. If you are happy to share your new locations with everyone else then follow 2 below.

    In each of the following you need to enter the camera location, you can do this by address, browse map of by far the best most accurate is by "GPS location" when the TTGo is next to the camera location. For the reasons of accuracy that is the method I will cover here.

    1. When next to the camera location on foot/in car, Tom Tom main screen, forward arrow, forward arrow, change prefs, forward arrow, maintain POI, Add POI, select pocketgps uk gatso, select GPS location, address is shown, suggest keep address as shown and add gatso after it, do this by touching screen at end of address to remove highlight you can then type additionalty as usual. Then select done.

    As you have added to existing POI database this new entry will use settings for icon,distance and sound without additional adjustments.

    If you are willing to share your new locations then follow 2 below.

    2. Firstly you need to add a new POI catagory in which to store your new POI camara locations.
    From TTGo main screen, Forward arrow, forward arrow, change prefs, forward arrow, maintain POI, Add POI catagory, type name of your POI eg "New Gatso" , Done, select marker (scroll down for lots of options)done.

    When next to the camera location on foot/in car, Tom Tom main screen, forward arrow, forward arrow, change prefs, forward arrow, maintain POI, Add POI, select "New gatso", select GPS location, address is shown, suggest keep address as shown and add gatso after it, do this by touching screen at end of address to remove highlight you can then type additionalty as usual. Then select done.

    You have now saved this camera location in a new file, therefore so that you can be warned of your new locations you need to set the POI warnings from the "Maintain POI " menu. (as you did originally)

    There is a trend on the camera market, people want now to tag their photo, not only by adding sound (micro can be found now on point and shot consumer camera), or letting the camera add EXIF embeded data ( Exchangeable Image File Format) into each pictures.
    Consumer always want more!, and with the arrival of Google Maps on the market, some years ago, It has not taken much time till users decide to add geoposition (with a GPS) to their pictures. While this feature can be found on some high end camera model (camera body > $10000, as an option it is quite pricey too), TomTom, Garmin and other consumer GPS are now able to provide a cheap and ready to go alternative.  A data logger is a device able to record periodically  latidutes, longitudes, altitude, date and time while yyou are on the road. It is now possible with some tools to merge pictures and files produced by GPS ad save new meta informations in EXIF data.

    Click Here for a live example

    Why use a data logger?

    • What itinerary did I travel yesterday?
    • When did I start driving today?
    • How long did It take to go from A to B and C in between?
    • Which is the current altitude and speed?
    • How can I remind precise positions?
    • When exactly I traveled there? 

    Combined with your favorite DSLR or point and shot camera

    • You take pictures but now can't remember the exact place of some of the  photos
    • With a software, you can then match the coordinates with the picture and you  like to see your pictures on a map. (Google map, Google Earth)

    Dedicated data logger

    Sony has started to sell a small device (Sony GPS-CS1KA), it cost $105 and do not use the latest SIRFstar III chipset, so don't expect much of it, old GPS chipsets are known to be slower to find satellites, have lower sensivity, do not work also well in city.
    Anyway here are the main characteristics:
    Sony.GPS-CS1KA

    • Keep track of your digital photos with satellite precision
    • Holds approximately 360 hours (31MB) of data
    • Records a location log every 15 seconds
    • Simple operation; no need for complex set up or connection, one button, two lights
    • Compatible with most digital still cameras; compliance with EXIF 2.1 or later
    • Small
    • 12-channel GPS with no screen.
    • The included software detects the unit and imports the GPS data. Another module detects attached cameras/MSD and imports the data
    Or you may want to buy a better dedicated data logger, Royaltek, Evermore, Gisteq or Globalsat are selling small device.

    Tom Tom Software data logger

    If by chance, you have a Tom Tom and are ready to take it in your holiday, look no further: Event_logger is the software you are looking for!
    Installation is straightforward, just dump all files to your SD CARD, and start your Tom Tom, as default the logging start. A text file (Event_Logger.txt) let you configure the software

    "Event_Logger is a tracking and logging application enhancingTom Tom GO. It can log Tom Tom GO events to Itinerary files that are managed by Tom Tom GO like any other native Itinerary created through the ordinary user interface; besides, Event_Logger can produce standard GPX XML files where events are represented as way points and the whole route is logged through a sequence of track points obtained by querying Tom Tom GO for location information at short periodical intervals";  from Event_Logger introduction

    On the plus side:
    • Work as expected.
    • Complete documentation.
    • Files are saved in directory /itn and use a standard file format (GPX)
    • Google map viewer in Internet Explorer (drag and drop file)
    • A Tom Tom will also show you the right way :-)
    Some issues:
    • Tom Tom battery lifetime, very limited especially if you are in a 8 hours trip, do not forget to set the Tom Tom contrast to the minimum
    • a XSL (transformation language) render the file directly in Internet Explorer but NOT in firefox as an activeX support is required to view the MAP.

    Garmin data logger

    Garmin is able to create NMEA (The ASCII data stream received from navigation equipment (such as GPS receivers) conforming to the NMEA 0182 Version 2.0 specification.) file out the box, you do not have to install anything and can jump to next to "Viewing your trip"

    Using a data logger with your camera/camcorder

    They are all  quite easy to use,  start both device and check that the time are more or less in sync, so that both date and time are very near together. That's all! We just need now to use a software to mix pictures, video and GPX/NMEA file together.

    Viewing your trip

    Basically what you need to find is a GPX viewer. there is a lot available online (use Google :-)), here are some I've used

    Geo tagging your pictures/video

    Sony picture motion browser tag automatically pictures and video, but this tool is checking prior to installation that you have a genuine sony camera/camcorder.The next tool I've found is named: RoboGeo

    RoboGeo ($35) has a very easy to use step by step menu n the left side of the main windows. The most interesting functionnality for me is the ability to create Google Map web pages with icons that show where each picture was taken. When these icons are clicked, additional info about the picture is displayed along with the option of viewing the full size image. It is really worth the money.
    robogeo.step1.gif robogeo.step2.gif robogeo.step3.gif

    And the Map you'll get in Google Map with the above GPX file (the demo version of RoboGeo add random coordinate as long as it is not registered, that's why some point are in the lake of Zürich). When these icons are clicked, additional info about the picture is displayed along with the option of viewing the full size image.
    robogeo.generate.google.map.jpg

    GPSTagr site which allows people with a GPS Track log in GPX format to upload their log, authorize the application site to modify their images, search for images with relevant timestamps, manually exclude images from geotagging - then process the net list of your flickr images against the GPX track log. Picasa (Free) let your tag picture one at a time, it open Google Earth and wait for You to click on the map. Not very useful if you have many pictures and a GPX file for matching them. It is still avery good tools for viewing and organizing thousands of pictures.

    RedHen  is a free download that synchronizes the  GPS log files with just about any digital camera's standard EXIF datafile. RedHen can drop icons onto a Google Earth map-  Make sure you save the new "Spatial Media" folder in the "My Places" folder so your images are available next time you open Google Earth.
  • Since January 10th this year, it has become illegal to use radar POI in Switzerland, to warn of safety cameras and mobile speed surveillance locations.

    Sorry I love Swizerland, but on this one,  i can't understand it.

    The Swiss police are currently actively searching for navigational systems with any type of camera pre-warning that are being used while driving. When such a device is found, the device is confiscated and destroyed and the motorist can also expect a fine. Not only has the use of these warning devices been banned, but their production, import or sale has also become illegal. Swiss road authority ASTRAannounced these measures on January 8th.

    ASTRA has released adocument with answers to frequently asked questions.

    "Solche Führer stören die Homogenität des Verkehrs und das Verkehrsklima, und sie animie-ren überdies andere Strassenbenützer zu Ge-schwindigkeitsmissachtungen."

    hahaha just say You're are loosing million of CHF. I just hope manufactures, shops will be able to change that ridiculous law. On the other side we will see a lot of confiscated GPS device on flea market sold by police officer.

    And here TomTom answer: Ist die Nutzung des TomTom Radarkamera-Dienstes legal?


  • Tom Tom homepage  has change today, at least in USA, UK, the french page has not been updated.
    You can see a falsh  demo of possibilities offer by this GPS designed specifically for 2 wheels. I will acquire one as soon as it hit the shelves in switzerland.

  • I will list here all Hacks for Your TomTom

    I RECOMMEND YOU TO DO A BACKUP FIRST BEFORE TRYING ANY HACK!

    All hacks below require a PC, the USB cable and a file explorer to modify some files on the amovible disk.

    Replace the start/stop boot splash images

    Open the file splash.bmp with Your favorite graphic editor (for example www.gimp.org ) and put it under the root of the filesystem. You can like me, add your own background, your pictures and contact informations, just in case it get lost. Moreover many people wont be able to replace the modded picture and that will decrease th value of the device for thief.

    Recover unused space on your card

    You can empty the directory /scripts this directory contains pictures displayed during the demo. Gain: 900Kb

    What the law say:

    It is forbidden to use any device that DETECT a street radar in France, so a GPS device do not enter in that category.

     Content of the package

    A lot of bagsOpening religiously all bags...

    The difference in price between a TomTom GO may be explain by the requirement of using a GPS on a motorcycle. But what can explain the difference of price?

    TomTom Rider

    • Has an aluminium case, waterproof, and a lot slicker than a TomTom GO
    • Is shipped with many goodies: textile bag for transport, bluetooth handsets receiver, 2 handsets (one for the cars or street, one for the helmet)
    • Has many fixation systems made of black aluminium...

     Installation

    The first time You'll start the TomTom Rider, You will have to answer a lot of questions: settings preferences, testing bluetooth wireless connections with Your celullar or the headset provided.

    I was encountering problem when I first try to install the bluetooth handset, I decide to look at the firmware revision, what was installed was the 5.410, a quick jump at TomTom in the section download reveal that a version 5.420 was available since the end of november.

    The update take the form of a "big and monolithic exe of 6Mb", wenn You start it, You only have to follow the instructions, It is recommended to do a backup first of all previous settings (user preferences) and to backup the existing TomTom SD cards, for this there is 2 entry in the main menu. It took approx. 10 minutes to backup 360Mb of maps...so it look like USB1.1 data tranfer rate...The connection to my Sony Ericsson K750i has worked like a charm, Contact database and messages has been synchronized without nay effort (Yes You can use your TomTom Rider as a free hand telephone!)

    The installation has run flawlessy, there is really no dfficulty for a non informatician to act with the device, all menu are clear and readable. Personaly I dont not like the awful icons with their limited color scheme. Why Do I have to support then when so much icons are available under GPL? anyway the menu are crips and clear.

    I look carefully at the filesystem backup and found in /TomTom-Cfg a file birthday.txt which maybe may contains when my device has been build: vr 14-10-2005 12:53

     Installing Radars overlay

    Since TomTom 5.0 no additional 3rd party software are needed, POIs (Point of interests) like restaurants, petrol gas stations, golf... are supported by the TomTom kernel natively. POIs are simply a set of GPS coordinate organized in categories along with some metadata like telephone number, internet adress, contact name etc...

    Managing POIsPOIs can be selectively activated on Maps...

    POIs are displayed on a MAP using a technique of overlays.

    • Radars overlays are files with the extension OV2, along with some BMP representing how the overlay catgory look like.
    • Overlays has to be put in the same directory as the map it refer, for example map overlay has to be put in the /france directory.

    For each category of overlay (a category is simply a way to sort all element semantically: fix radar at 100, mobile laser radar are 2 examples of street radar and can e place in 2 categories), You can set when to be warned, (Icon Warn when near POI) usualy by setting the distance in meter when to trigger a sound.

    Select a POI categoryThen when to be warned...

    The table below present You some values which can be taken as a basis, there are base on the distance you may need at 120km/h to adapt to a new speed....

    Your speedRecommended Distance
    20-50 km/h200m
    60-70 km/h250m
    80-100 km/h300m
    110-130 km/h350m
    Mobile Radars300-500m (laser range at 400m)
    Street signal100m

    Then choose a sound, 15 are available,but You can store Your own (WAV format) and use them as well. In case of POI, a bref warning is recommended

    then
    choose a sound DO NOT ACTIVATE THIS OPTION!

    DO NOT ACTIVATE THE LAST OPTION!

    Why? Because You may be not alerted if the GPS do not think You are on the same road as the radar, since the GPS technology and the radars database has an accuracy of +/- 20meters You may be catch by a radar

     TomTom is using Linux!

    What is really interesting is that Tom Tom use heavily Open Source software and redistribute as state by the GPL the modified source code (More to read at www.tomtom.com/gpl )

    • Blowfish (The Blowfish Encryption Algorithm) -> Maybe for encrypting the ROM or some sensitive data like MAPs
    • ClipUtils (The Cohen-Sutherland line clipping algorithm)
    • CoRDiC (Coordinate Rotation Digital Computer)
    • MD5 (MD5 message-digest algorithm)
    • Ogg-Vorbis (Tremor-variable)-> Even If I have found no ogg vobis compatible file, wav seems to be supported through...
