Cool Camera Detector

Hi Goldsatr,
I've got an Inforad fitted in my car and as you suggest it
doesn't like the front screen. I wired mine in permanently to the cigarette lighter wires and got the optional aerial from
Maplins. The actual end piece is magnetic so I ran the cable
under the carpet (lots of cable) and under the back seats
and attached the magnetic bit to the metal on the side window frame, works fine.
Regards Leroy

I have bought and fitted a GPS based speed camera dectector from Microfuzion[ cost about 90 with free updates for life]. I have fitted it to the windscreen by the interior mirror, this area is clear of the coating and it works superbly well. I have used Velcro tabs, with adhesive backing to fix it, so that it can be removed to update. Fantastic value for money and great performance I would recommend to anyone. It gives speech warnings of the presence of speed cameras, with their speed limits and warns you to slow down if you are going too fast, what more do you want?
On the downside, the latest download gives warnings of "school zones" and sugests that you should reduce speed. You would be amazed at just how many such zones there are in my area and the unit is often issueing the warnings.

Thumbs up

I have ttg 700 in my Espace, and loctated it at the top of the screen near the dots. most of the time it worked fine, however whenver i really needed a good signal i never got it.

I bought an external antenna from EBay , it was not made by TT but only cost 29 and now i get fanatastic signal, the extra strenght also helped to keep on track on big roundabouts as before the map sometimes lagged behind.

A good invesment well worth the money

windscreen and GPS (SatNav)

The newer GPS/SatNav with SiRF Star-II (or III) are sensitive enough to work through the windscreens of Laguna II (Phase 1) - check the spec. before buying - I use a Garmin mapGPS 76 CSx; it's a handheld for walking, etc. and have no trouble at all getting a good signal.
