I am planning to buy a new 3008 (Allure) later this year. Does it include a Speed Camera database (UK) & if so what is it like.

John
Sadly it doesn't but it is available as a cost addition to the tom tom services.

The car does support carplay and android auto so you could use either of these to alert you through the audio of the car. Tom Tom even do a free android app.

How do you get speed camera alerts through CarPlay pinkaardvark, does it include all speed traps or just fixed cameras. I have an Aguri speedway in my current car but it doesn't look great sitting up on the dash

Not sure if there is and AA or CarPlay integration. I assume the free tom tom one will play it's audi through bluetooth if it is paired to the car as an audio device.

Waze does not work with Android Auto yet but they announced that a beta testing program will begin in the near future. I signed up for it so hope to have more news soon.

Google now owns Waze which probably explains why it's going to be the first nav app after google maps to be approved for Android Auto. Apple tend to be a lot more restrictive than Android so can't see them being too keen to approve Waze for carplay (or any other nav app) especially as it's now owned by their arch rival!

The alternative is to use the speed limit output on the dashboard and not drive any faster than that. I think that is known as the law. Then you can stop worrying about speed cameras.
Its so easy specially in the 3008 for the speed to creep up without you realising this happens at the wrong time flash flash your done least the beep beep of the speed cam warning makes you check your speed at that point.

No it doesn't, although you can buy a hazard/danger zone subscription as an add on to the Tom Tom Live Services. It doesn't specifically say it includes speed cameras, but I imagine it must do.
Thanks for that. Had a look at TomTom Live services web site and it does have a camera database as an add on. Pity it is TomTom - I experienced their safety cameras back in 2009/10. Not unusual to pass a fixed camera without getting a warning even on ones that had been there for years.
I reported some to TomTom without any effect.

Yeah, since being caught twice I use speed limiter. But its still good to know where the cameras are especially the ones sited at the bottom of a long downhill stretch!

I love the fact that the speed limit recognition can adjust the cruise control / limiter on the 3008.

Could not link the two on my current qashqui so agreed this will be helpful.

I'm a careful driver and (touch wood!) have never been caught by a speed camera. My wife's juke has these warnings and I find them quite distracting!!! Can understand why some would want them though.
