I used Drive+ for the first time yesterday (in the UK) and all went fine apart from speed cameras not being detected. I looked through all the settings and I couldn't find anything relating to speed cameras. I was getting speed warnings yes but not specific camera alerts. Am I missing something?
Also, is there a way of displaying all the 3 available options (time to destination, time of arrival and distance remaining) simultaneously? Plenty of room on the screen for all three.

It doesn't tell you locations of that stuff, speed, red light or car pool cameras. It just pulls down the speed limit and lets you know if you're going over it...
Unless that is a great euro feature.
Try Trapster, community just for all the driving hazards, man made, natural, speed related and more...don't know how well it works in euroland but works great in USA.

Here in US, my Drive + does show me red light cameras (and maybe speed camera as I have not driven through those neighborhoods yet) and alerts me all the time. So, the app does have this capability. All it depends is the data from the map in your region.

There's an app called 'Speed Cameras' (the one in wpcentral news a few days ago) which alerts you when you approach a speed camera. I haven't tried this myself but I assume it would work in tandem with Nokia Drive+ if you leave the Speed Cameras app open and ND running in the background. I don't think it'd work the other way around. Their database seems pretty good so it could be a decent solution.
Anyone care to give it a try? Bed time here in Australia, so I can't do it now.

The feature exists but maybe the map data is lacking. Nokia owns NAVTEQ which traditionally has better map data in US because it's headquartered in California. TomTom owns TeleAtlas which traditionally has better map data outside of US.

I am from Canada and there is an app called G.P.S Navigator Voice that has the speed Camera locations that works well on the Lumia 920
I have a Toyota Camry that has a Blue tooth system that I use to answer the phone hands free. The sounds from the G.P.S Navigator are cancelled out when the Bluetooth is selected through my 920.
All the sensors on the screen of the phone light up saying your coming into a red light zone, but no sounds unless you turn the Bluetooth option off in settings, but now you need to answer your phone manually.
Vibrate mode works with Bluetooth mode selected in settings. The red visual colors gets you eyes attention to warn you. If you were to plug a set of headphones into the jack on the phone the sounds are there. You could get an small speaker that plugs into the jack for sound. Nokia maps are free and don't use Data, running the app may cost you because it connects to the internet.
