Product Description

Product Description

The Road Angel Gem is the very latest speed camera detector to be released for sale in the UK. Being the newest device you'd expect it to have the latest features and technological developments and it certainly does. Road Angel Gem comes with LIVE updates, this means no need to connect to a computer to download the latest speed camera database. Instead using GPRS/GSM (mobile phone) technology the Road Angel Gem automatically updates as you drive! These updates deliver new speed camera locations, changes to speed limits. Plus with the 'CameraShare' button you and other motorists also using a Road Angel Gem can add live as seen by the roadside mobile speed camera vans and alike in a matter of seconds. Which just isn't possible with GPS detectors that require a computer to update! Road Angel Gem also comes complete with a built in laser detector, useful when you come across mobile laser based safety camera partnerships and their vans! Another very useful feature of the Road Angel Gem is it's database of road speed limits. These cover all roads in the UK, whether a speed camera is present or not. So at anytime on any road, Road Angel Gem will display the speed limit for the road you are driving on! This feature is further enchanced thanks to the Road Angel Gem's LIVE updates and it's 'SpeedShare' button, where if you come across a road where the speed limit has changed simply advise of the new speed limit.

Works fine but you will find that it doesn't pick up the right speed limits in many locations as it doesn't seem to have the latest information to process despite having the feature of automatically updating itself. Still a useful product, just a shame about this. Battery life isn't great, so you might need to hard wire it. The dashboard stands it comes with seem not to last very long either as I've already replaced two.

I have used four different Road Angels over 10 years: the small oval classic model, the 6000 incorporating GPS navigation, the big-screen Vantage now out of production, and now this Gem which may be the last time I buy and use a RA.

PROS

* Charges continually via in-car cable

* Updates from the dashboard so you don't have to take it into the house and connect it to a PC like the old models

* Small & unobtrusive (if you see this as an advantage) with good graphics

* Mount it on the inside of the windscreen or the dash, though both locations are problematic

* Correctly IDs speed cameras 95% of the time and alerts you to their presence

* The average-speed-between-SPECS-cameras on the motorways function is brilliant: a real first and very, very useful

* eAssist option (which you may never use, or only once in the product's lifetime)

* mph/kph easy to change over when you drive abroad

* RA's tech-support is reasonably knowledgeable and responsive

CONS

* The magnet-attach dash-mount is so weak that the unit spins around every time you corner, so you need the screen-mount for a secure fitting - which in my vehicle means the Gem ends up too far away to see clearly or reach, as the device is too small

* The build quality feels cheap and plasticky, less substantial than previous models

* The rubbery buttons are fiddly to use, a regressive step from the big easy touch-screen & quality-feel of the Vantage

* The speed limits on roads I know and use a lot are incorrectly displayed (i.e.

Very poor opinion of this product. Despite registering immediately, after many weeks it still starts with the comment 'please register and within 24 hours you will get updates' . Fixed cameras are reported perpetually at some locations where they may have existed once many years ago. Altogether a good looking product that simply fails to deliver

I have had my unit for over a year, used every day - and it is pretty useless. I bought one of these to make sure that I was made aware of the speed limit at all times, as I had just been fined for speeding on a country road with no signs, but it regularly displays the wrong speed for the road I am on, and in my case, NEVER automatically updates itself as advertised.
Unfortunately, like an idiot, I fell for the discount upgrade offer for 3 years worth of updates!! a lot of money for upgrades I never get, so I'm stuck with this piece of junk. These are the pros' and cons for my unit from my experience:
PROS:
* Useful display of average speed and current speed is displayed, whilst traveling through an average speed camera zone.
CONS:
* I can't trust it. It often displays not only the wrong speed for current road, but also can suddenly show say a 30mph whilst traveling on the motorway or dual carriageway.
* Warns of mobile safety cameras where there is no chance of one parking up, i.e. a busy road with no laybys or overhead bridges.
* Has not warned of three different mobile safety cameras and one well established fixed gatso
* Never updates itself. I did attach it to my PC recently, it said it was updating but no difference was made to it's inaccuracy. (a nearby 4 miles stretch of 40mph limit road, is still displayed as 60mph)
* My unit will only work when plugged into the lighter socket, it switches off after about one minute of being unplugged.
* The support network appears separate from the main Road Angel site, and has never replied to my complaints.

I honestly could go on but I think you get the picture. This unit does barely more than display the speed in the same way a Tom Tom, et al, does. Save yourself the money and avoid this garbage.

I have only had the unit for a week but even in that short time I am getting problems with it 1, despite me giving it a full charge the battery only lasts for 1 hour, the unit keeps switching itself one and off. I am very disappointed with it. I would send it back to Amazon and buy another one however the price has gone up to £177.99 and I cannot afford that price

Alerts 30mph from side roads whilst on the motorway. Alerts where there physically couldn't possibly be a van. Cries wolf so much. Real camera van alerts way too late and not adjustable like fixed cameras. Falls out of its cradle when you press a button. Screen invisible in daylight and sound so tinny and utterly annoying. Thick unweildy USB cable for powering in car. Its just terrible and i returned mine. Sorry to be so negative but its just the truth.
