    Thinking of getting a radar/laser/speed camera detector. Have been looking around and they are quite pricy and require quite hefty subscriptions etc. Saw the Micro Fuzion website, and the systems on there look quite good. Just wondering if anyone has got one/had one or knows if they are any good?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have one in each of my cars and I think they are great. They warn of camera locations, including possible mobile ones, as well as other hazzards like school zones. They work on gps and do not "detect" anything so can leave you open to lasers etc. A usefull feature is that when warning of a camera location it tells you the speed limit and if you proceed over the limit it realy shouts at you. I paid £99 for mine -well worth it I think.

    Depends which one you are talking about this

    or

    I have both which I am not using the first one is ok but alarms at all Ka band radar including automatic doors and temporary traffic lights which gets a bit annoying.

    Second one is a re badged Talex unit and is really good, camera data base is also pretty sharp.


    Also worth noting though laser detectors are useless, if they alarm then you have been hit and it's too late best protecting yourself with a laser blinder.

    For fixed and mobile cameras I use pocketgpsworld speed camera database on my TomTom wich is absolutely fantastic.

    Bit of a grey area and it would be extremely difficult to prosecute as they are sold as parking distance aids, it just happens they use laser light and operate on the same frequency as UK spec laser guns and cameras.

    This is the one I use, front and rear.

    Tested at distances as short as 30m with LTI & Cleartone laser guns and they can't get a reading.

    Not that I condone speeding but after several instances of colleagues being ticketed on motorways (Particularly M74) at 78mph thought it was time for some protection :D
