The fixed cameras database includes an information about speed cameras in
Another version of the program, aSmart HUD Air, shares same user interface but fully compatible with worldwide FoxyTag FIXED AND MOBILE SPEED CAMERAS DATABASE. After registering you will be able to participate by signaling new cameras or by confirming existing ones. You would create trust links with the other users and benefit from more reliable information. This collaborative model makes that FoxyTag is today the most complete and up to date speed camera database in the world.
Of course, registering with FoxyTag.com is free.

On approach aSmart HUD 3D +SpeedCams will give you sound and visual warning. Warning also will be given in case your speed exceeds the speed limit set for that camera.
NOTE: It's not guaranteed all speed cameras in your area are included into the database. However, we will release database updates right after the new information will become available.
You can edit the database by adding or removing the speed cameras. Also you can change the camera speed limit.
You can add new camera just by a single tap at "map" center, or at the "camera" icon:
After you called the "Add Camera" screen your position is memorized, so you have time to finish the tagging process.
Note: you cannot add cameras in case your GPS signal precision is lower then 50 meters.
With aSmartHUD 3D you can create and save the driving routes (Google Directions service is used - the same as for the standard Map application) to follow them later. Application will display your current position on the route and display the route on the map.
Every route is saved in the appplication database, so you don't need to re-create it every time application starts up.
Tap "Add" to create a new route, "Delete" erases the selected row of the routes table. Pressing "Go!" makes the selected route "current" - you will see your position on it (red ricle indicates the final position on the route, green circle is start position).
For creating a new route you need to set up the start and finish points of your trip, and then tap the "Route!" button. Also, you can define up to 8 waypoints (8 is a limitation of the Google Directions service).
Start, Finish and waypoint positions are draggable - you can just move them over the map by finger to chnge their positions.
You can serch the locations on the map by address by using the "search" edit box in the top of the screen.
In some cases you can have more then one alternative route. You can switch btween them using the "<" and ">" buttons,
button will open full driving instuctions of the selected route list:
You can email the driving instructions to any e-mail address:
You can use "+" or "-" icons to adjust the map range. "+" increasing the range, so the map "zooms out".
3D Track Log Graph is a nique way to represent the speed, location and altitude data in a single 3D graph. Color coded speed and altitude chart is constantly adjusted according to your moving trajectory.
You can access the 3D Track Log Graph screen by tapping the "Track" button on the main commands menu.
The Track Preferences are available by tapping the left upper corner of the 3D Track Log Graph screen, where you can adjust the transparency of track data components or switch them off completely. Also, you can switch the speed chart style and the graph scale.
Speed Chart Styles:
- 2D: Speed chart will be displayed on the bottom of the screen (left side vertical in Portrait screen mode)
- 3D Gradient: Speed chart adjusted with your moving path. Green bars reflect your lower speed points, red – higher.
- 3D Limit Bars: Speed chart also adjusted with your moving path. The bars shows what speed limit you've been keeping in that point. Green color for first limit (city), yellow - second (public roads), etc.
NOTE: due to processor performance issues, the track data size is limited to 1MB. If the data size is exceeding this limit, some of the most oldest data will be simplified (i.e. decreased it's detail level).
You can email your current track as a GPX file to any email address;
Trip time display: time elapsed since application startup.
Moving time display: time of your trip minus time spent for standing on traffic lights, fueling on petrol stations, etc (i.e. all the time when you are not moving and the speed is zero);
Direct distance/time to Home location display: the time is calculated on a basis if your current speed, and should be understood as "minimal time necessary to get to stored Home location on a direct line with current speed". Home location can be reset by tapping the "lightning" icon, located next to the distance;
You can access the Google Maps by tapping the "Map" button on the main commands menu.
Transparency of the Maps could be adjusted by dragging the slide bar on the screen bottom, so you can use speed reading and map at the same time. All standard gestures (like zooming and scrolling) are supported.
The "pin" button locks map center on your current location.
You can easily switch between Street, Satellite and Hybrid map types.
Note: this function uses the internet connection, so depending on your connection plan additional charges may apply.
"Fullscreen speed" indicator mode makes the spead reading more clear. Tap the speed to switch it on or off.
Alternative "Fullscreen speed" mode can be selected in Display Preferences.
Two fonts for the speed indication ("Arial" and "LCD") available.
You can minimize and maximize the "speed cameras/distance to start" display by tapping the blue triangle in it's upper right corner.
You can switch the alternative compass style:
"Live" display mode makes the application the more interactive: speed indication slightly changes the size depending on your acceleration.
You can select current iPod playlist, skip/rewind/pause/play music items, set the music player in Shuffle or Repeat mode.
Tapping the "HUD" icon mirrors all the text, so if you position the iPhone horizontally under your car's windscreen you can see perfectly readable half-transparent reflection of the picture displayed.
We love this mode! We found it much more convenient compared to traditional car dashboards (especially on the roads of Western Europe, which are full of speed cameras and where you need to watch your speedometer all the time). And last but not the least - it just looks cool.
Note: this mode works pretty well at night time and twilight, but on direct sunlight the screen brightness can be insufficient. Depending on your windshield angle the image also can be slightly "double".
You can switch between different map styles and providers. Currently, application supports the Google and OpenStreet.org.
Sample OpenStreet.org provider "Matrix" color scheme:
Also, you can use the "invert" option invert map colors.
"Lock rotation" option disables the map rotation, so the map North always will be oriented on top.
If you selected the monochrome map color, you can adjust it's brightness, what is especially useful at night time.
Program downloads the maps data according your moving path, so internet connection (3G or WiFi) is required. However, it re-using your Maps application cache, so it does not re-download it every time you moving on the same places.
Depending on your connection plan, some additional charges may apply.
You can switch the map off to save the internet traffic and battery life.
Unlike the standard Maps application, aSmartHUD starts download the map data only when the GPS precision is enough to measure your current speed.
Landscape and portrait screen modes supported.
aSmart HUD 3D +SpeedCams can keep track on 4 speed limits, giving a warning (sound and visual) each time you crossing it. Normally, it's legal speed limits within cities, local roads and high-speed motorways. "Never exceed speed" is the speed you should not exceed under any conditions. For example, it can be a technical limit of your vehicle or the point where government can arrest your driving license.
Weather forecast is provided by Norwegian Meteorological Institute and the NRK. "aSmart HUD" uses the 3G or WiFi connection do retrieve the data, each weather update takes about 40-80 kilobytes. You can disable this feature by switching the "Display weather" to "Never". If "Every 5 seconds" option is on, the display will de switched between the weather data, "Nearest speed camera" and "Distance to Start" in cycle.
Next two switches define time intervals for the data display. "+3 HR" will show the forecast for the time after 3 hours since cucurrent moment, "+9 HR" - 9 hours, etc.
Temperature units (C, F) are selectable on the "Units" tab in Preferences.
Location Info (longitude and latitude, GPS measurement precision) and some more data is available on separate screen. You can adjust transparency of the "Location Info" screen to use both views at the same time.
On the "Records" screen you can see the maximum reached speed, altitude or distance from start, for you current trip or for for all the trips you ever did.
You can choose between 6 different color themes.
Speed log chart is located below the camera data.
Several sound options available: "Electro", "Beep" (just another sound to mark the speed limits) and "Morse", when aSmart HUD 3D +SpeedCams beeps morse-code for "ONE" when you crossing the first speed limit, "TWO" for second, and "THREE" for third. The startup sound is morse-coded word "HELLO".
You can specify different measurement units (km/h, mph, knots and meters per second), display color scheme, sounds and more.
Troubleshooting a.k.a FAQ
- The program is running only on GPS-enabled iPhones
(second generation or higher)
with iPhone OS 4.2 or higher. No iPod Touch, 1st-generation iPhones or
minor OS versions supported.
- The precision is affected by the satellite signal
quality. On open-sky spaces it's pretty good, but under other
conditions can noticeably decrease. Also, after startup it requires
time to locate the necessary satellites, so during first minutes of
measurement can be less effective.
If unsure, use the program only for reference, don't rely on it for
