    Hi

    this works well and picks up data but when going into freedrive it has no sats . If I take the gps port out of the RR ini, freedrive skin then displays the number of sats.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    I *think* with Freedrive, you don't need to enter the gps port in rr.ini. I think Freedrive should give GPS info to RR which in turn will pass it on to GHRR.

    If not, you can use xport3 & to split the GPS port into 2 virtual ports.

    Besides, hasn't Freedrive already got speed camera detection?

    Hi

    Beezer yes it does but when I ever try to update the camera database it fails so was going to try this plugin as it look up todate.

    1. FreeDrive passes the Lat and Lon info to roadrunner but in different labels to the ones you are polling in gatsohunter.

    2. to use Gatso hunter and FreeDrive you will need to use something like Xport or another com port splitter.

    3. Yes, and my 'personal updated' version, which is available with the iDrive skin (green only at the moment) and will be available seperately has CAMALERT,CAMCANCEL,CAMDISTANCE and CAMSPEED notifications.

    Wow, this is one kick *** project. I always loved Gatso Hunter and always recommended it to people when they were looking for cool software. I'm glad to see so many people use it!

    What about a version of this more tailored for those in the US?

    Where I'm located (Chicago) there's not many cameras. The biggest threat are cops themselves or worse yet, cops with laser. Radar doesn't go off until you're tagged in most cases.

    Anyway, is there a way you could somehow combine Gatso Hunter with the Valentine One software?

    Basically, instead of plotting camera locations, use the Valentine One radar detector with the PC interface, and have the software plot each cop radar detected within Gatso Hunter (instead of cameras).

    Then just have some sort of setting that alerts you if there's a bunch of hits in an area. I always thought something like this would be the ultimate software of it's kind. Ultimately all of the above, with the ability to plot 'hits' on your GPS maps live.

    That might be a long way from now, but I was just wondering if it would be feasible by anyone here to try to combine that Valentine One software with Gatso for a more 'US' version.

    ok.. tried it today on a 15hr trip but got some serious errors... first of all it sometimes warns me about a speedcam where there isn't any around for miles...
    It tells me my speed is 640km/h or something.
    It crashes everytime it warnes me about something...

    Might be my config but I'm not sure yet!

    See if the original GatsoHunter works for you.

    I've not changed any of the parsing routines (yet). The version your running merely obtains NMEA from RoadRunner rather than direct from your GPS.

    In UK we have databases of the GPS coordinates of all the fixed speed cameras (Gatso's). GatsoHunter warns you when you're near a speed camera.
