    I wish you could mark the positions of speed cameras on roads.

    it is easier to download the speedcamera files for your gps system which are available on many websites as updated daily!

    Speed cameras are not available in Map Creator at the moment.

    Hi Jan, what about Traffic Lights, Speed Bumps, Fords, Dips, Pedestrian Crosswalks and other sorts of “Roads Characteristics” that help the current “Predictive driving” that Garmin GPS for example have?

    all those are in here database but just not accessible for editing by the public on here. they get info like this directly from local authorites in the countries so is 100% accurate. this is not OSM that has everything this is a gps unit that needs to be accurate and things double and triple checked.

    Perhaps what you said is true in 1 of every 10 countries in the world; What is the purpose them to have map Creator program if you can only move some roads and place Hamburger vending places?

    I don’t know yet the first inventory in Latin America of Speed Bumps, Dips, Traffic Lights, Fords or Perhaps Speed Cameras. Some in India could not be “More Accurate” that the local guide who live in the backyard of the maps.

    My Country has officially more than 24 Thousand populated centres from Hamlets to Cities spread all over the country. So far less than 500 are properly located in HERE, and several of those are Duplicated; so who will have this corrected? the guy in India, checking the map, perhaps 90 days after somebody reported a Map Problem?

    If you want to have a decent GPS map the first thing that you need is to trace a CORRECT Map and not just trace lines through Glaziers, Ridges, Jungles or Deserts just becuase you “Guess” that something that looks like a “road” in an aerial image is actually a “real road”

    If local knowledge is forbidden to “Really” update the Here map with meaningful data, What is the purpose of the program them?

    By the way tell that history of the “GPS Unit that needs to be accurate and things double and triple checked” to someone that just brought a brand new Volkswagen, Citroen, or PSA Car with an in-dash GPS with Here maps (former Navtech) and that “ask” for an address and the NAV system guide him 250 kilometers “off-course”.

    I am sure the owner will not be much happy at all…
