    I have a C3 with SRC and it comes through as a "ding ding" and shows up on display as speed cam. I prolly will update it manually (no subscription) on a yealy basis.
    I bought this as a one-time down load for my Nav 4 on my K16GT and it's already saved my bacon a few times and truth be told, nearly gotten me rear ended too. Yesterday, I was coming up to a green light on a road with a 55 mph speed limit when I got the "ding ding" about the same moment as the light turning yellow. I had to get on the brakes pretty hard and still put my front tire in the cross walk but as I'm coming to a stop I'm watching my mirror for the guy behind me in a Buick diving on his brakes. I was ready to pull the trigger to keep going if he didn't stop but he did. If he hadn't been paying close attention it could have gotten interesting.

    I seem to remember reading in one of the auto magazines that red light cameras actually cause accidents like this and that the accident rate at intersections are higher than before they were equipped with cameras.

    They're popping up all over the place around here and I'll probably get another $12 update to it about once a year. It also includes speed cameras and I've even gotten pop up warnings for what it called a "Mobile speed camera."

    Y'all be careful out there.

    Unknown to most people, all red lite cameras also have a speed camera. So if you speed up to beat the red lite and exceed the speed limit you can get either a red lite ticket, a speeding ticket or both! I am speaking from experiance! This is standard equipment in all red lite installations.

    A word to the wise should be sufficiant.
