    Road Angel Gem v Pogo Alert

    As the the SatNav units don't show camera alerts I am thinking of getting one of the above. I have been offered the Gem Deluxe with 3 months free subscription for £160 and the Pogo with 6 months free subscriptions for £190. I don't generally speed but have been caught out before by not spotting a speed change on a dual carriageway near Monmouth by a mobile unit and will be going to new areas soon. Have read lots of fors and againsts just wanted some realistic reviews and comments from people who have used either or who went through the same dilemma. I like the Pogo as it is small and has an 8 hour battery so don't need any trailing wires but then I like the Gem as it constantly updates itself. Any help? And before anyone suggests alternatives I don't have or intend to get a mobile phone for please don't suggest apps. Thanks

    PigPen,

    I have a Pogo Drive, saved my bacon several times, plus it has sat nav as well, handy if you travel in another without a fitted Sat Nav unit.

    I use a normal cheapish TomTom Satnav (£80) and have installed the PocketGPSWorld speed camera database with full voice warning and adjustable distances for the warning. Works a treat.

    Pocket GPS World - SatNavs | GPS | Speed Cameras - Speed Camera Download

    Voice Alerts (TomTom Format) for the PocketGPSWorld Speed Camera Database

    After reporting a new camera for their database, I am now also a life member with a free yearly subscription :-)

    The database has all of Europe in it and includes known mobile sites.
