Speed camera notification

It would be great if there was an ongoing Status Bar notification containing all the information in the AmiGO popup that appears on the bottom of the screen when approaching a speed camera or other other hazard.

Such a notification could be seen by apps like Tasker, Automagic etc., and user defined action taken as a result (such as highly customised announcements, turning down the volume on the music player to aid concentration, or virtually anything else...)

Can this be treated as a user/enhancement request please?

    Hi

    Did this ever get prioritised?

    As an alternative, is there an Android intent I could hook into when approaching a speed camera or other hazard?

    Any update on this, please, or link to Android Intent information?

    Hi @Wibbly

    I'm not sure about the timeline or exact improvements but there're already new additions lined up for AmiGO later this year. Hopefully, we'll also improve the notifications popup.

    Best, lampard

    Hi @lampard

    Thanks for the update. Meanwhile, are there Android Intents I could hook into?

    Yes, insofar as that thread references Android Intents, but what is referenced was around TomTom Go and Google Maps.

    What I'm after is Intents supported by Amigo with the aim to specifically to be able to communicate to another app that a speed camera or traffic is being approached.

    Hello @Wibbly

    I asked the team and they confirmed that we are not broadcasting any speed camera intent so it's not possible what you asking for, but you could use overlay mode for that. I'll let you know here if there's any update in this regard.

    Thanks, lampard

    Thanks @lampard

    Unfortunately, whilst I use overlay mode, there's no programmatic interface to what's going on on the screen, and nothing different is reported in the notification either when a camera or other alert is displayed.
