maybe ?

When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

maybe ?

On our journey home from the Lincolnshire meet, a camera car (as in streetview type camera) was making sedate progress around a roundabout. Al had already gone round, so I hung back and sure enough the cameras took the same exit and ended up between us. I followed it for a while, thinking if the cameras were rolling as the speed suggested, we could both end up online. There was nothing on the back, but as I overtook I saw HERE on the side. According to Wikipedia, Here Maps replaced Nokia Maps, and used to have streetview, but no longer does. OK, so why drive a camera car round if it only has satellite view or map ? Maybe it's changing again - I shall be checking from time to time to see if streetview re-appears and shows 480s on the A47 near Swaffham !

You can do time shift on google maps, so you may still be there!
