Relight-Beta vs. Redlight-Cameras

 

Can someone please tell me what's the difference besides the file size?

Thank you.

beta has cross-streets

The beta file displays the cross streets in the green box. The other file lists the file name...beta makes it easier to figure out if you are at the light for sure...if you can read the text quickly enough.

I put both files in my nuvi...double warnings and sometimes I can see the cross-street info.

What green box? It's gray on my Nuvi 760 and red on my Garmin Mobile XT.

That's not a file name. It's text "red light camera.code". You can change it to whatever you like.

I can spot icons (my car and RLC) on the map so much quicker than reading cross street names.

I like the Beta version simply because

I like the Beta version simply because it displays the cross street names. Not that it's really necessary or even helpful, but just because the Beta version offers a bit more information for me.

Yes, to me Beta Version is better it tells the Junction. Miss POI had mentioned the code in other file is for reference which camera you are talking about.

I just want to make sure both files have the same database information except the reference code.

Thanks again folks.

Miss POI's answer to me

Quote:

You only need one of the red light files. One has the site code and the other has the intersection names.

I would use the beta. We will eventually phase out the original. We still have some bugs to work out of the system.

This is what Miss POI answered me in an earlier post.

You can easily do that by opening both CSV files in Excel or notepad and compare them. The coordinates are identical.

I prefer the beta version.

I prefer the beta version. It becomes especially helpful on some roads LOADED with red light cameras such as Woodhaven Boulevard running through Queens, NY.

Believe it or not, there are so many cameras that along the entire several mile length there is probably not an entire 45 second period in which I am not getting a proximity alert. With so many intersections (some very short between lights) it is impossible to recall which ones actually contain the cameras. With the beta I at least have a better idea!

Red Light Cameras along the way

True, True for us who live in NYC. The Beta file is very helpful.

It's crazy especially on Eastern parkway, Linden Blvd and Queens Blvd. So many Red Cams for the revenue enhancement.
