Pogo Alert

The fully portable, plug-and-play Pogo Alert speed camera detector combines GPS and Laser technology with cutting-edge design and a high resolution 1.8-inch TFT colour LCD screen. The Pogo Alert will warn of ALL fixed speed cameras and in addition, alerts are provided for mobile laser traps via the supplied laser detector module.
The Pogo Alert also includes patented features such as 'Directional' feature that provides warnings only for speed traps in the direction of the user and 'Limitator' feature that provides full warning sounded only if the user is exceeding the prevailing speed limit.


Pogo Alert Summary
Pogo Alert harnesses the power of orbiting GPS satellites to provide total protection against the threat of fixed speed cameras, mobile laser traps and accident blackspots in the UK.

Pogo Alert combines cutting-edge industrial design with a high resolution TFT colour screen, custom designed GPS hardware and an intuitive graphical user interface. The result is the most sophisticated speed camera detector ever to take to the road.

Pogo Alert utilises the award-winning Origin360 speed camera database, which has been updated since 1999 and contains GPS co-ordinates of ALL fixed installation speed traps, including Gatso speed cameras, Truvelo speed cameras, DS2 (Speedmaster), Watchman speed cameras, Speedcurb speed cameras and SPECS average speed cameras.

The Pogo Alert speed trap proximity warning is user definable from 200metres to 2000metres or from 5-30 seconds. Voice warning of camera type/speed limit is provided when in the vicinity of a speed camera. Auto mute setting with adjustable "muted" volume is also available.

At each speed camera location the Pogo Alert shows type of speed camera, vehicle speed, speed limit, road number and countdown (metres or seconds) to the speed trap. The Pogo Alert can also display distance covered, journey time and average speed.

Pogo Alert also includes a highly sensitive infra-red laser detector to provide the fullest protection against laser based speed cameras and 'safety camera vans' via the supplied (removable) laser detector.
