Speed limit warning in Navigator 2.2

Navigator can help you stay within the speed limit.

To enable this function go to Settings / Navigation / Speed and camera warnings.

Navigator 2.2 - Settings Navigator 2.2 - Navigation settings menu Navigator 2.2 - Speed limit Menu

In the Speed limits menu you can set how and when mapFactor GPS navigation should warn you in case you exceed the speed limit.

Navigator can warn you either on screen (flashing speed limit restriction sign) or also by an audio alarm.

Speed limit warning threshold

You can also set a threshold for the speed warning.

  • Exact speed limit - warning immediately when you exceed the speed limit
  • Percentage - warning alarm when you exceed the limit by 5%, 10% or 20%
  • Value - warning when you drive 5 km/h, 10 km/h or 20 km/h over the speed limit

Important note:
Please be aware that speed limits are fully dependent on the map data. The free OSM maps are created by volunteer contributors and do not necessarily include all speed limits. There is much better speed limit data coverage in TomTom maps which are available through the in-app purchase.

Camera warnings in Navigator 2.2

Navigator can also warn you if you approach a camera. You can set warnings for speed cameras as well as traffic lights cameras.

You can set distances for the sound warnings - 100 m, 500 m, 1000 m. A camera sign will show on the navigation screen.

  • 1000 m distance - a yellow camera sign
  • 500 m distance - an orange camera sign
  • 100 m and less - a red camera sign

Also the alarm sounds change as you get nearer to a camera.

Please, be aware that the use of speed and light camera warning is forbidden in some countries. Check local laws before using this feature.
