To activate the speed camera warning function, the voice has to be ticked for reading out navigation directions when the navigation is set. The camera warning give two sets of beeps, first is about 500 metres and second about 75metres. It works regardless of if you set a destination or not, as long as the voice is set to on in menus.

That's a nice-to-have feature. Wonder why it's not available in the US? Maybe laws against

I just got excited. If AU has this then maybe we in CDA have it and perhaps I missed it. No. We don't have it either. Pity. We've driven over 20,000 kms in AU during 4 trips and I can see where that would be a nice feature. I agree, likely against the law. In Ontario radar detectors are unlawful and if you get caught with one you lose and pay a fine. The police have units that can detect them. A number of years ago a friend of mine was stopped and he quickly hid his radar detector by shoving it down his pants. They told him they detected a radar detection unit and asked him if he had a unit in his car. He said "no sir." They asked him to step out of his car. He did and when he saw them looking at his crotch he looked down to see the cable hanging out. Cost him a few hundred as well has loss of the radar unit and lots of embarrassment.

The navigation system detects red light and fixed speed cameras.

Frankly, I would NEVER have guessed that would be legal in AU. We've really enjoyed driving around AU (outside of big cities) because of the fair speed limits and tough enforcement. My sons thought I was BS'ing them when I told them about the enforcement. One son works in the auto manufacturing biz and he spent 6 weeks in Melbourne working with GM on the Camaro. Before going over, an engineer from Melbourne came to Canada and visited their office. When he walked into the meeting he asked what the numbers on the highway meant. He said 100 kph sure does't mean that because when he got up to 120 he was still being passed by everyone. He said that would never be tolerated in AU. When my son subsequently went to Melbourne (we had him drive our favourite road - Great Ocean Road) he found out that I was not kidding about enforcement.

Where do you live in AU. I'd love to go back for a visit again but my Dear Wife now refuses to fly - ever. So much for that thought. We've taken the Indian Pacific twice and I'd like to do it one more time. Would also like another crack at the GB Reef.

During our last trip 5 years ago we were stopped twice by police. First time was traveling north from Perth headed for Denham and Monkey Mia. Rounded a corner to find six cruisers. We were flagged down and given a breathalizer test. Passed it with flying colors although the bad breath may have got him. Then, in NZ traveling from Christchurch to Dunedin we were driving parallel to a rail line. The road then made a sharp right, crossed the tracks and then a sharp left. Our GPS had shown the limit at 100 but it disappeared off the screen when we made the left and again were parallel to the rail line. I could see a small town ahead and told my wife I wasn't going speed up since I could not determine the limit. So I drove at 60. I then looked in my mirror and could see a half dozen cars behind us. Horrors, the second was white with orange and blue bars - NZ police. Then the cruiser popped out, turned on flashing lights and siren and pulled us over. At that point I thought "just what I need, a speeding ticket." I lowered the window and when the officer reached the car he said "sir, can you tell me why you were driving so slow." My wife just about chocked trying to keep from laughing. Anyway, we got a lecture on the fact that 100 meant 100, not 90 or 80 or anything like that. We said we had no intention of driving 100 or we'd miss the sights we came to see. He then said "fine, but if you find 2 cars or trucks behind you pull over and let them pass." We agreed. Then had a conversation on enforcement and what they tolerate. He said if we don't go over 110 we'd be OK. Of course 110 in a 100 in AU is going to cost a bit.
