That’s because this isn’t sat nav, it’s a warning system for approaching speed cameras (static and mobile), accident blackspots, schools and congestion charge zones, with the first of those very useful if you already have a number of points on your licence. The Origin360 speed camera database is pre-loaded, offering audible and visual alerts including speed trap type, speed limit and proximity to ‘hazard’.
Pogo Alert also includes a highly sensitive infra-red laser detector to protect against mobile laser based speed traps and ‘safety camera vans’ via the supplied (removable) laser detector module. A six-month subscription to Origin360 is included, after which you’ll be loking at an annual fee of £50.
The device itself is available now for £249.95.
