Google Maps and Speed Cameras

 

I'm sure this has been asked, however I did not find a thread so I will ask.

Is it possible to download the Speed and Red Light file and use them with Google Maps on my Nexus 4 ( Same phone as the LG E960 )

Thanks

It looks like you can with this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lentz.poil...

That could be very handy on occasion.

A side question for you; have you enabled the Band 4 LTE on your N4? If not, it's amazing for speeds! cool

It looks like the paid version might be what I am looking for, however I will have to contact the author to see if there is an audio alert when approaching the POI. If not then it is useless to me as a NUVI 350 has such a small screen.

As far as activating the LTE I have not since as far as I know the band that it uses is not in use by my carrier ATT here in NYC

You may want to give this a try https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ventel.and... .They also have the Lite version.

Another alternative would be to download this free GPS program with off line maps that also includes cameras https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mapfactor....

Can also download POI Factory cameras to Map factor Navigator.

What a shame. I usually get between 80-90 down, and 20-28 up. I'm surprised ATT&T doesn't use Band 4 there.

If you travel, it may be worthwhile to do it, though. It's easy to root with the Towelroot app (NO data lost on the phone), and then flash a hybrid modem.

Let me know if you (or anyone else) wants the steps to do it.

The Canadian allocations are probably different for Band 4 than they are in the US. We seldom agree on frequencies and ranges but between the two countries, the allocations are often very close.

band 4 is Band 4

I know for a fact that AT&T as well as T-Mobile do use Band 4 in the US, but it seems, regional use varies. The Nexus 4 is the same one for the US, as it is for Canada.

Again, what a shame he can't utilize it.

90 meg down versus 20 meg down...probably not going to notice much difference. Streaming is streaming, and it is usually less than 2 Mbps on the internet, probably less on a cell phone. File downloads might come down a couple seconds more quickly but that's hardly noticeable.

If I'm missing something, I am certainly all ears.
