Road Angel 2 GPS Road Warning System
The original Road Angel fisrt appeared two years ago. The Angel 2 just released contains many more new very useful features. It should be noted that it is NOT a fully functioning GPS navigator, but more a licence protecting aid with additional safety benefits. If you are interested in this type of device it could be a good move to have a very close look at the Uniden 301 GPS as it is very similar and comes in at a third of the price. So what does it do? With new fully integrated GPS and Laser technology, ROAD ANGEL alerts you to: accident blackspots, safety cameras (including Gatso,TruVelo, SPECS, Watchman, Speedcurb, DS2) and mobile laser guns; with an audible, visual and voice alerts.
Everyday use of ROAD ANGEL acts as an extra pair of eyes to keep you alert to approaching danger and improves the safety of every journey. It is also very simple to install and update using the excellent website. Using the latest global positioning satellite (GPS) and Laser detection technology, ROAD ANGEL constantly gives you an accurate speed reading and an audible and visible alert as you approach hazardous sections of the road. Should you breakdown, ROAD ANGEL has a unique RescueLoc function which gives you a pinpoint location reading to help direct rescue services to your position.
The Road Angel is readily available in Australia, but we couldn't find anywhere to download a manual from. Prices range from a bit over $900 up to the RRP of $999.00. The dearest suppliers are Harvey Norman, Retravision type shops with the small specialist on-line suppliers giving the best deals - Andrews Communications etc. On legality (it is really a radar detector called by another name) is OK in the UK but this isn't mentioned on Australian sites. It could pay to check this out before purchase. Most of the info on this page came from the UK.
