We will see the available routes. Click on the one that seems most appropriate for the time and difficulty of the route you are looking for. You are always in time to change route. As you can see, icons will appear on the displayed routes indicating accidents, works in progress or, what interests us, speed cameras.
Note that the DGT speed cameras will be shown on the map. But not in the indications shown when you click on Steps and more. Anyway, during the route, in navigation mode and in the preview, we will see the map in real time, and it will show us all the necessary indications, including speed cameras or accidents.
Another aspect that may interest you is the tolls and highways. If you go to the drop-down in the upper right corner and click on Route options, you can check «Avoid highways» and/or «Avoid tolls». Two interesting options if you do not want to encounter these elements during your trip, short, medium or long distance.

If you click on a speed camera you will see information about when it was reported and when it was updated. The more updated it is, the more reliable the information about its location and whether or not it is still active. Once in motion, the application does not allow the driver to consult this information, in order to avoid distractions at the wheel that could jeopardize safety.
We have talked about fixed radars, but what about mobile radars? They generally appear in the application with a blue color and their location is usually less reliable than the fixed ones, precisely because their position is constantly changing and those who report them are usually the travelers themselves.

The best thing about this mode of the application is that you don’t need to do anything. That is, it is completely automatic. Maps will locate the speed cameras and warn the driver as long as a route has been created and the ‘How to get there’ button has been pressed.
In addition, the voice will warn in advance of where the radars are located along the route. As if that were not enough, it also has the ability to report what type of control it is: if it is blue it will be fixed and if it is yellow it will be mobile.
The DGT also allows to know where these controls are, although with a much more archaic method that cannot be consulted while driving. Thus, the DGT has completed a PDF with all the radars, their directions, the exact location and what type they are.

To ensure that all these movements are carried out safely and in compliance with traffic regulations, there are more than 1,300 radars distributed throughout the country’s road network. These are fixed, mobile and section radars used by the General Directorate of Traffic to control speeding.
If the icons have an orange color it means that we are in front of a fixed radar, while if the color is blue it is a mobile one. In addition, the co-driver can click on the icon of a speed camera to obtain more information, such as when its location was updated.
