Apple Maps Speed & Red Light Camera Reviews

Apple Maps red light cameras and speed camera

Google Maps and Google-owned Waze, the popular driving navigation app, both already include these features. Waze has let drivers report and flag known camera spots and speed traps for years. It backed away in recent years from displaying police checkpoints, like those set up to snag drunk drivers. 

 We are curious where Apple Maps is publishing speed cameras and if these locations are accurate?
Apple is adding multiple new features to the Maps app in iOS 14, including Apple Maps icons that will let users know when they're approaching speed cameras and red-light cameras along a route.

It's not clear if this feature will be limited to select areas, countries, or will have a wide rollout, and it does not appear to be implemented in the initial ‌iOS 14‌ beta as an examination of the Maps app with various routes did not display icons for traffic cameras. 
   
While MacRumors took a look at the iOS 14 Maps app this week and couldn't find any traffic camera icons, it looks like there may be more to the CarPlay feature, as one Reddit user discovered. Google is testing a new feature in Maps that lets users report accidents and speed cameras. The feature, introduced in the latest version of Apple's map operating system, Apple Maps, displays a small speed camera icon at a point on the map where users report seeing a police speed trap.  
    
So far Apple hasn't really said much about how it will work, but I've listed a few examples of maps that should let you know when you get close. Google Maps shows you the location of the speed camera on your planned route and plays an audio cue on the map that tells you when you need to approach it. Apple Maps does not detect speed, it will try to give you data about speed limits, but will not inform you about changes. This information would be useful in both Apple Maps and CarPlay, so I'm curious to see if it works when I approach it. 
    
If you are in an area where the speed limit has fallen, Google Maps will notify you if there is a speed trap in front of you. The app logs your speed as you approach the limit and also shows you its location, and warns you if you do, so you should slow down and watch your surroundings.
       
The company has been working diligently on a massive maps update, and now comes Apple's biggest update in history, taking Apple Maps and other app features to a whole new level. If you're wondering why Apple Maps isn't getting out - looking at improvements in iOS 12, here's the answer: The company's long-term plans for the Maps app on iOS are much longer than that. The maps have been updated and have more features than ever before, including the ability to update maps, as well as a number of new features, such as speed cameras. Apple Map is currently available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and iPad Air 2, but will also be available on Android phones and tablets. 

Please give us your feedback below on the data Apple Maps is publishing. Are they missing locations and are they accurately reporting in markets worldwide?
