A cheap solution in the meantime would be to DL a free social network app on her smartphone. Try "Waze" (what I use) or "Trapster" and see which has the most users in your area. All dedicated traffic social apps have verified stationary speed cams mapped out. No need to set the alerts for miles out, the default distance provides plenty of warning.

I drive with Waze running on my phone every time now. It is more reliable on traffic jams, plus it has all the info on hazards, wrecks and speed traps reported by all the other users. A ton of other navigation and trip sharing features too.

Biggest problem is that apps like Waze, Trapster and Escort Live make the BMW iDrive and Mercedes Benz mbrace navigation functionality Jurassic.
