    Guys,


    There is a new version of the Road Angel software - 1.7.1 UK

    Find it here:

    http://www.blackspot.com/downloads/

    You can choose whether to have Cameras and Blackspots or just cameras with this version - ie it totally deletes the Blackspots :D :D

    Blackspot Servers under going maintenance at the moment though - save your updating until tomorrow.

    Thanks for that G. :)

    One word of warning for any of those that use RoadAngel via USB... DO NOT change from cameras&blackspots to cameras only as this will cancel the usual update download and instead prompt an initial full download which will cause problems.

    Thanks guys.

    Does anyone know when they might include mobile camera sites in their database?

    I dont think that they can add mobile site to the data base due to the fact that they are mobile and in no fixed position.

    A while ago Kinky posted this, so I was hoping they might get added. I think mobile sites have to be approved, so they use the same sites each time.

    FYI - for Road Angel users ....
    Picked this up on Pistonheads - posted today ....

    FOR ROAD ANGEL USER +POSSIBLY OTHER SAT SYASTEMS

    Posted by pesty

    Around my area there is a type of mobile van that uses fixed sites I wrote to RA to see if these sites are covered here is my poorly written question and their reply....

    Hello,

    I have a road angel and I am extremely pleased with it. I have a
    question in my area they are using more and more mobile vans! these vans plug into posts and wires already fitted under the tarmac and the locations are suposedly published according to the camera partnership website.

    Do you add these type of "mobile" locations to your database. I live in shropshire I see them all the time!

    Regards

    Phil


    Dear Phil

    These locations are called DS2 sites. We are currently collating this database and will be releasing it soon.

    Regards

    So there you have it they will be on there soon

    Thanks Richard i based my assumption on the local cops here round Blackpool. One of which is a friend of mine. He stated that they never used the same spot more than 5 times in a 12 month period of time as people will know it is there as they do for local gatsos. So they as PC plod to stand by the side of the road take the laser out of the boot of his car and do people in random areas. This could be local policy though with different areas haveing different policy's.

    I think the difference might be that they are hand held laser traps, rather than mobile camera's. Its the camera's they have to publish the location of.
