    Yep it was pretty dead at that time and i just eager to get home. Looks like i will have to take it on the chin, learn and move on. It seems like an cash exploitation tactic to covertly activate the cameras. But for everyone else I can confirm even with the lights off now they likely to be active or will be active in the future. The simple truth is a lot of people break the speed limit. I remember speaking to someone who did data analysis for the highway agency and the average speed limit by motorists was above the national speed limit on the motorway. To me it seems quite tactical to enable them with out warning as it exploits drivers nature and habits. Normally we're use to seeing warning signs and big yellow cameras..

    e60 android 4.4.4 8.8 ccc upgrade

    Yep, I agree touch screen seems counter intuitive..From what I seen on the videos it is compatible with the centre wheel and steering wheel. I've got factory aux so i might give it ago when the weather is more forgiving.
  6. Hey All I was allegedly doing 90 mph (i still think i was about 85) on m1 north bound between j39 -j40 at 2am. No excuse really was just stupid of me. Lesson learnt There was no enforced speed limits or lights on and the gantry camera flashed at me. Didn't expect it to happen because it wasn't enforced but it is! Got the NIP through. Looks like i'll have to take the hit. Couple of questions can't understand why it's enforced with no notifications of speed limit enforcement (i respect that the motorway limit is 70mph) Also the NIP states "For variable speed limit offences only. the speed limit at the time was 70 mph" but the limit wasn't enforced Do you think i should appeal for the course (first offense)? Or will i just straight get slapped with a penalaty Thanks
