I've written my first Python application for my N95 to provide a UK speed camera warning system using internal or external GPS. It is designed to operate in the background (e.g. whilst using Nokia Maps or in standby) and popup to the foreground with an audio visual alert, then return to the background. It should work with other suitable Series 60 phones with internal or external GPS but I cannot test this.
If this application is of use to others, more information is available at http://mcbiskits1.googlepages.com/
As this is the first application I've made that other users will have to get signed through the Symbian Open Signed process, I'm keen to find out if the installation guide I've written is correct and the installation works before I publicise it. I would therefore be grateful for someone to give it a try and feedback to me.
The application was written specifically for the UK. It should work in other countries except that the application assumes that the camera speed limits are in mph. If there is interest, I could update the application to work with kph limits if someone volunteers to test it.
I've now started to work on adding the speed camera locations to a landmark database so that they can be shown in Nokia Maps. The coding is not an issue but the problem I have is that no suitable icons are supplied in the Landmarks icon set and I have not found a way of adding new icons. Is there a solution for this?
