When it comes to camera location data, accuracy is key. One of the reasons why Cheetah detectors are better than others, is that our proprietary database is 100% verified by Cheetah’s professional database team, which monitors all media and internet channels as well as communicating directly with police departments, city traffic engineers, city records, Municipal Codes of Ordinances, traffic bureaus, state transportation agencies, our own network of trusted camera spotters and field survey teams.
No automatically user generated content
Cheetah don’t rely on user generated content, so our products avoid the hundred’s of false alarms that always plague sat nav downloads and competitor devices, when users mistakenly submit traffic cameras as red light cameras.
All Cheetah GPS detectors can give multi-directional alerts; they tell you when you are approaching a camera intersection on an enforced direction that could give you a ticket; and they can also give a different alert when your direction is not enforced (no ticket). For these “non-enforced” approaches, the C50 says, “Photo-enforced Intersection.” You get the alert so you know to pay attention at a bad intersection, but you also know that you won’t be ticketed in that particular direction. The C50 lets you switch off these “non-enforced” approaches by selecting a different user mode.
Trinity is more accurate and complete than other databases because our team gathers more data than anyone else, to give you the most detailed alerts on the market.
In addition to the camera locations themselves, we plot:
- the camera type
- directional vectors
- speed limits (where applicable)
- ticket directions
- “non ticketing” directions
How we use that detail
Satellite navigation systems, phone downloads, radar detectors and some other GPS detectors use a basic “Radius Alert” technique to warn when you’re approaching a camera. The bad news in cities with a number of cameras is that radius alerting means a lot of annoying false alarms for “Off Axis” cameras on side streets. The good news for Genevo users is that we use a much more complex system of directional vectors to scout out the road ahead, cutting out those Off Axis alerts. Cheetahs know when to alert you, and when to keep quiet, so you have far fewer false GPS alerts. Unlike sat nav, radar detectors or competitor devices, there are no false alarms for cameras on the other side of the freeway. Genevo only alert to hazards that are a threat in your direction of travel.
Intersection adjusted coordinates
The common mistake that most other products and sat nav downloads make is to plot red light camera locations right in the centre of an intersection. GPS alerts usually pause when your car is stationary at red traffic lights, then start up again when you set off at the green. As many US intersections are quite big, this means you receive a second (false) alert, or “Ghost Alert,” until you reach the middle point of the crossroads. Live with a product for a while and that kind of thing really gets annoying! Trinity years of experience of dealing with European photo-radar led them to pioneer a unique solution called “Intersection Adjusted Co-ordinates” which Genevo detectors use to eliminate these ghost falses and to stop alerting at the exact camera position.
