Speed camera warnings

Anyone know if there are any solutions that allow the pro nav to alert on fixed location speed cameras. I've found a couple of third party sites that support the E60 nav but can't find anything yet for the F10.

Failing that, can anyone recommend an 'invisible' speed camera detector - i.e. one that doesn't have to be clagged onto the dash or window? Liked the look for the road pilot micro, but it seems to have been discontinued now.

If you have an iPhone, check the app store. There are various apps that claim to do this, at least in the Swiss store. I did have an app where people could report ad hoc speed cameras as well, but I cannot remember the name. Just don't know how reliable these things are.

I don't know the specifics of how the speed cameras work in the UK. However in some jurisdictions in the US, the radar detector can pick up the presence of a speed camera, because the cameras use a form of radar to measure and determine the vehicle speed. So if radar detectors are legal, perhaps that may help in picking up speed cameras.

I was more thinking POI on the pro nav. You can do this on the E60, but I've not seen anything for the F10 yet.
