We have red light cameras.
I just wonder if anyone can send or text IM to anyone who own GPS about the police who using radar guns on some location
i think they move around too much to reliably track. POI for police stations might be helpful.
I guess that is really a yes and a no statement. Around here and many other places, law officers have very specific spots that are used very regularly to site radar checkpoints. These spots are chosen because of the fact that speeding is common and the police can "hide" in the open using a hill, cluttered background, curve, etc.
Good money generators, these, hehehe!
Anyone wanting to tackle a POI data base for such points can have these two as guaranteed hot spots: 32.8246/-97.2054 and 32.8926/-97.226124.
I totally agree with you. I saw some specific spots which cop always be there. We should have POI .
can you show me how to get hot spot from my garmin?
They always move around, but they always come back to the same location.
I started a Speed Trap poi not to long ago for Charlotte, NC.
It would be nice to have a (National Project)
where everyone could add to.
Here's mine if your interested.
These are just for Radar Speed Traps.
If your unit works like mine (c530), you can set a favorite by touching the car icon on the map. I usually identify them by a letter i.e. A, B, or C. When I get home, I connect my GPS to my PC and open Mapsource from which you can transfer the favorites (they become waypoints) and the long and lat show up.
I hve nuvi660
I have a Nuvi 660 also and I beleave it is about the same procedure. If you touch the "car" icon you can save your present location as a point.
i like that idea of starting up a national POI for hotspots, however, i think its a bit irrational to have so many POI's for unsubstantiated data, red light cameras are stationary, and they dont really change much, i think if you really want this idea to take off, you need many people working on this project, a national database would be too extensive requiring too many checks and balances, however having sub-divisions such as NorthEast, SouthEast, NorthMidwest, SouthMidwest, NorthWest, SouthWest, etc etc, and having people in charge of different "zones" so they can more easily keep track of their states, would be an idea really worth looking into, but yet again, it requires the skill of many to achive a "nationwide" database
anyone else have any ideas?

There is a website where people contribute speedtrap information and it is broken into states. http://www.speedtrap.org/
Don't see how to break this into POI's though. Also, it changes.
