Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom consumer, said: “By launching the TomTom Speed Cameras app for free, we want to welcome more drivers into the TomTom community. Already, 4.6m drivers are working together to report and verify speed camera locations in real time – and now all Android smartphone owners can join us to make driving a more relaxed experience. We have focused on reducing driver stress, by designing a clean and simple app which minimises false-alarms for irrelevant cameras.”
The TomTom Speed Cameras app provides alerts for both fixed and mobile speed cameras, as well as average speed zones. The locations of fixed cameras are provided by TomTom’s highly accurate database, and verified by a TomTom moderation team, while mobile speed cameras are community-reported and community-verified. The app can also run in overlay mode, which means that drivers can still contribute to the community and receive alerts while using other apps.
As of today, the TomTom Speed Camera app for Android is available as a free download on the Google Play store.
