Hi Fellow Geeks,

A while back (Feb 2005 in fact!) Geekzone posted a review on the very first version of the GPS Speed Sentry application for Windows Mobile devices. In case you didnt know the application is developed in New Zealand...

Anyway, I thought I would just post to let everyone know that version 1.5 is now out with many more features than the original release.

Aside from excessive speed warnings the software now supports speed camera warnings. A New Zealand database is being actively maintained on Zenbu (www.zenbu.co.nz) and contains all fixed camera across NZ as well as some "mobile" locations around the North Island. The database is free to download and use with the application (which is shareware).

So if you've got a GPS and a Windows Mobile device why not give it a spin, you might save yourself some $$$ next time you forget to slow down!

Nice... Great to see updates to the software. I was wondering if New Zealand would ever have a speed camera database.

Do you know if this data is updated with those mobile cameras or just the fixed camera?

Hi Mauricio,

The data on Zenbu contains all of the fixed cameras in NZ (which shouldnt change).

The mobile cameras are the "vans" you see parked on the side of the road. Since they normally park in the same places they are recorded for prosperity but as a result you may get false warnings (but any warning is better than none).

Ive added the ones I can remember from Auckland and Taupo as well as the ones Ive seen driving around Wellington/The Hutt/Porirua.

People can dd their own locations via Zenbu if they wish :)

Trevor
