The South African reports that Google Maps will roll out a new feature - speed limit and speed camera data to their maps app.

This feature will be available in 40 countries, and South Africa is one of them.

This will put SA's built-in navigation in phones in line with most in-car navigation systems.

Of course, the metro police won't be as chuffed with this new perk.
