Pogoalert Keeps Speed Traps at Bay

by Paul Strauss

This wondrous little auto gadget uses GPS satellite tracking, radar and laser detection technologies to alert you to the presence of speed traps and traffic cameras.

PogoAlert GPS Traffic Alert System

The PogoAlert features a compact 1.8-inch LCD screen that mounts on your car’s dashboard or windshield, and lets you know when you’re approaching a speed trap or traffic camera. It also comes with live radar and laser detection to alert you to new spots that aren’t yet in the GPS database. Since it’s loaded with GPS data, it can also alert you to the current speed limit, and only alarm if you’ve exceeded that. Remember that radar and laser detectors aren’t legal in all localities, so check your local laws before thinking about one of these.

The PogoAlert currently offers map data for the UK and Europe only and runs

    Moose – thank you – that worked great for me to – on my machine it had put it to COM19. Just dropping it to port 2 got it working fine. I had similar problems with a B2. Why can’t origin make it clearer in their instructions???

    Hi. I’ve got a radar and laser detector from http://beatthespeedtrap.co.uk/ – can anyone tell me if there is much value in getting one of these as well? A friend of mine has a talex which he says is good but I quite like the look of this one.
