Or you could treat yourself to a TomTom GO 300, have your speed camera warnings and sat-nav to boot. The beauty of TomTom is that it'll accept user defined POI (points of interest) files which can easily be uploaded and downloaded via websites. The upshot of this is that there are several independent and completely free sources of regularly updated speed camera data. You can even chip in and contribute new camera locations to these sites. You can set your own warnings ranges for these POI, and even upload two copies and have (as I do) a long range (I use 2Km) warning for mobile laser traps, and repeated shorter range warnings (I use 300 metres) for all speed traps including the lasers.

Though you'd probably get away with leaving either the Talex or the Microfusion permanently installed in the car. Try that with a 300, and you'll soon have a broken window and no 300 to worry about.
