I have a Garmin Nuvi 250 thats works excellent with no signal problems from my Laguna or the wifes Scenic

Best to be careful when driving abroad with a speed camera detector GPS especially in France as the French authorities don't like em, full stop. On the spot fine and if your very lucky you can keep the speed camera GPS, if your not, as is most of the time, they'll confiscate it on the spot.

I have the Nuvi 250 that you can subscribe to Garmins speed camera database so its ok to use without fear of getting half inched by a french plod but even cheaper is the speed camera database from

Gets updated all the time and although this won't do the mobile cameras it'll do all the fixed ones.
Gamins database will do 'area's' that mobile camera vans are used in
