Beyond helping us reach our destination by optimizing the route, some navigation applications have an ace up their sleeve for those who like to step on the accelerator: the speed camera warning. If you want to have this function on the console of your car, two premises must be met: that the navigation application in question has a speed camera warning and that it is compatible with Android Auto, after all, Android Auto does not allow to be a projection of the phone. With that said, let’s review the main applications with detection of legal speed cameras that you can use with Android Auto.
If you don’t want to complicate installing more applications (because it comes by default on your Android phone), Google Maps shows the fixed speed cameras reported by the DGTamong many other functions offered by the navigation app of the big G. In this tutorial we explain how to configure them on your mobile so that, consequently, they are seen on the console of your car.

But Maps is not the only Google application: a decade ago it acquired Waze, one of its main competitors in navigation due to its careful interface and updated information, however it allows those who use the application warn of milestones on the road, such as speed cameras and the presence of the police. In this sense, if radars are the priority for you, Waze is a more complete alternative.

If you bet on a classic and highly experienced navigation service like TomTom, the AmiGo version is free and its nice and clear interface shows both fixed and mobile speed cameras. What makes it different from the subscription-based TomTom Go Navigation app? Mainly that the second one works offline.
