Apple Maps Now Showing Speed Camera Information in More Countries

Apple has started rolling out speed camera information in Apple Maps for additional countries, according numerous reports. Initially, the feature was only available in Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Apple says the feature will let you know when you're approaching speed cameras and red-light cameras along your route so you can anticipate potential slowing traffic ahead. You can also see where individual cameras are located on the map.

iCulture first reported the speed camera information as being available in the Netherlands and Belgium but said they weren't getting notifications.

The location of speed cameras can be seen both in CarPlay (including the CarPlay Dashboard) and on the iPhone if you only navigate with them. A disadvantage is that it is not clear from the app what is being flashed. Apple Maps only shows that there is a speed camera. In our test, we did not receive any notification of the speed camera and there was no announcement that you are approaching a speed camera.

Since then users in Australia, Austria, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Norway, and Sweden have also reported seeing speed camera information in Apple Maps. There have also been user reports of voice announcement warnings.

Notably, in the iOS 14.5 beta, users have the ability to report accidents, hazards, and speed traps within Apple Maps. We expect iOS 14.5 to be released in the near future.

I'll stick to Waze who had this feature for years

Update: I checked and cannot confirm this feature is available for me. I’m in Canada. Perhaps, not yet available in Toronto?

I had no idea this feature existed. Interesting. Could have saved me $75.00 if I knew about this.
