Try this site:-
Speed Camera Database
"Our database covers all fixed camera types including Static, SPECS (average speed cameras), and Redlight and also has comprehensive coverage of mobile camera locations."

I have a satnav program on my Android phone called Sygic, it includes user reported speed camera alerts and possible usual locations. It also gives you the option of setting a percentage of the speed limit and wil warn you when you go over that limit. It makes a sound and displays a warning triangle, enough to get your attention but not in an annoying way.You can get it for Android and Apple phones and I find it works really well, you can even get live traffic updates. It costs about 15 euros for a lifetime licence and about 10 euros a year for the traffic/speed camera locations - not bad I thought.http://www.sygic.com/en/

If you have tomtom premium speed cameras, there is an option for mobile camera hot spots.

You can download free POI for both TomTom & Garmin SatNavs fromwww.trapster.com this covers all camera types.You can also download for smartphones with SatNav, these have a live update facility as well. Regular daily updates are available for SatNavs whilst smartphones enjoy the live updates. The database covers most of the world. The only downside is that there is no indication of the speed limit with the warning. I have both the TT database and Trapster on my Satnav and have found the Trapster to be more accurate. You can also get an Inforad GPS based "detector" from Halsfords and other stores from 39.99 with free updates for life, these covers all camera types as well. I am still benefiting from these after 8 years at least.

I can certainly vouch for the Pocket gps data base. I used it on my TomTom for a time, and while visiting family in Rotherham, we were driving along the Bawtry road towards Wickersley when the TomTom alerted the possibility of a mobile unit. As it happened I wasn't speeding, but my Brother in Law who lived there said "What's that thing kicking off about"? I said it was warning of a possible speed trap, to which he replied "I've never seen one there" or something like that. We came round a bend in the road, and there, in a lay by, was a Bobby with a Hi Vis Jacket and a speed gun!! Should have seen the bro' in laws face! It was a picture!! I haven't used them for some time now as TomTom had an offer on their own service, but it shows that it's pretty accurate!
