oh yea..
another thing, where can we can more voice clip?

1st alarm at 500m is too short, i'm trying to set it to 800m
2nd alarm at 250m is even too near, mine is set to 500m

if 1st warning at 500m, most probably you've already kena tangkap by the camera.. hehe

i'm trying to look for something like "Warning... speed camera infront"

or if possible, give the distance is even better..

Any feedbacks regarding wrong location of Speedtrap POIs, etc should be posted at the Speedtrap POIs thread maintained by Bro Pauchai.

Anyway, what kind of error do you mean?

thanks bro.. :) nice voice clips...

regarding the distance for 1st and 2nd alarm... after i set the distance and i tried today...
fuh yoh... my device is sooooooo 'bising' la...
hehe. i'm living in Penang island, small island ma..

my setting is:
1st alarm : 800m
2nd alarm : 500m

these are all in radius, where if i'm not on that road, it will detect any speedcam POI within that radius.. I pass by under the penang bridge, but the device bising for the cam on the bridge.. i pass by queensbay there, the cam bising for the cam on the coastal...

I'm thinking of re-setup the distance.. any good recommendation other than 500 and 250 ?

hmm....

this is not for voice clip or distance.. but more on the settings..
last night, i was playing with the settings, then i found out that, i can actually run the speed sentry without GPSproxy... hehe

now, I can setup 2 settings...

1st settings
- GPSProxy on with virtual port com3 and com5
- GarminQue port set to com5
- Speedsentry port set to com3

2nd settings
- GPSProxy disabled.
- GarminQue not running
- Speedsentry port set to com2 (GPS device)
- tick on the SIFR chipset in the settings area.
- it works and it seems faster than going thru the GPSProxy.

But I think the 1st setting more suitable but it seems there's a little bit of delay there.
Anyone tried this before?

Since the POI got no elevation data, no way to tell if the Speedcam is above or under. But to minimise "false alerts" you can at least set a narrower detection angle, that way approaching Speedcams which are directly infront of you will be alerted, the rest at the sides out of the angle will be ignored. But of course, you have to go thru trial and error to get the optimal setting for the detection angle.

Not sure about optimal settings, just remember that the detection angle value is for each side, so if you set at 30, the detection angle is 60°.
