I just joined POI Factory and I must say it’s been very helpful in learning the ins and outs of my new Garmin 530. Many thanks for a job well done and to everybody who contributes to the success of POI Factory.
This morning, I downloaded the Red Light Camera list for the first time. Great job, Miss Poi.
As the technology is developing, the installation of red light cameras is also changing. Couple of years ago Town of Vienna and The City of Falls Church in Fairfax County, Virginia installed new types of cameras in their busy intersections. These cameras are video cameras which records the red light crossers, not only the still picture but the whole movement of that particular moment.
I have nuvi 350. Seems like whenever i approach intersection, 'redlight camera ahead' warning goes on twice. If the light is red, it may speak 3 times. gets annoying. i put 'single tone' in proxmity alerts.
I was asked a question I couldn't answer. If you're in the intersection when the light turns red, does the camera take your picture or the car that enters the intersection after the light turns red?

Seeing more red
i think it'd be more convenient to see intersections rather than various alphanumeric letters.
what distance do u use for red light cameras? I've set mine to 400 ft so it gets close to the camera...but not too far away. not sure.
FL, is testing Camera Lights again, and I think they even have some fixed now in Orlando, I'll try to get the locations and get them to Mrs POI.
An article in today's Chicago Tribune says that the city is on track to have red light cameras installed at 10% of all traffic-light intersections by 2010.
I can see myself turning off the GPS when I'm downtown to avoid hearing "alert" every 15 seconds...
Some websites that I have seen suggest that it is possible to create a speed zone for a portion of road and the GPS will warn you if you exceed the speed at any point along the route. Is this possible or can you only set up one point?
I have noticed that some intersections (have photo enforced sign) seem to have more than one set of devices. I am wondering if one set is for redlight and the other is speed? How do I tell a speed camera from a redlight or is this even an issue? I'm in the Atlanta area!

Just read this this morning:

TUCSON AZ - The city of Tucson says it will begin testing photo radar and red light cameras next week.
The city is the latest in the state to install photo radar and red light cameras in an effort to slow down drivers and prevent accidents.
There are three new Red Light cameras. I saw a report on them on the news this morning.
72nd and Pacific ave
84th and South Hosmer
56th and South Tacoma Way
I just read this little article about Speed Cameras being considered for Baltimore City.
Quote:"BALTIMORE -- City officials want to seek permission from the General Assembly to install cameras to catch drivers speeding in neighborhoods.
"the 50 cameras, which went online gradually during the last 10 months, produced less money than originally expected -- and that future funds will be cut in half because of a new law mandating that some of the profits go to the state."
I just got back from a week in the Vancouver metro region. My Nuvi was sounding off with a lot of speed camera warnings, and I could never spot anything. Mostly they were on deserted and lonely stretches of highways. Does anyone know if these alleged cameras actually exist?
i've seen some intersections w/ small black objects probably around size of can of soda w/ two protruding black metal parts. are they redlight cameras? they're not like the 12" silver boxes the size of a shoe that look more like cameras.
