Google Maps tests speed camera system

One of the most popular navigation systems worldwide is Google Maps – but up to this point it’s been missing one thing – a speed camera warning system. But it looks like that’s all about to change, as the company has begun Beta testing the new tech on a selection of mobile devices.

Following its acquisition of Waze around five years, Google finally seems to be integrating some of the features from its one-time rival into its own navigation system. First on the list; a new speed cam warning function.

At the moment it’s still in the early stages of Beta testing – which means that it’s not available to all users just yet. And Google hasn’t announced when it will become widely available either – but considering it’s well into testing, we reckon it will be progressively rolled throughout this year. Nice one Google.
