Disadvantages False Alerts (but you soon work it out)
THESE UNITS ARE NOT A LICENCE TO SPEED AND I DO NOT ENDORSE SPEEDING. THIS IS MEARLY A REVIEW OF THE PRODUCT. IT IS PROVEN THAT PEOPLE WHO USE THESE UNITS HAVE 24% LESS ACCIDENTS. BY KNOWING WHERE CAMERAS ARE THE OVERALL AVERAGE SPEED MUST DECREASE.QUICK OVERVIEW
GATSO Cameras can be detected upto 75 yards
MINI GATSO Cameras upto 400 yards
LASER and RADAR Guns upto 1 mile
They are so easy to fit and use. All you do is plug it into the cigar lighter then either use the supplied window or dash fix and away you go.Now the way the units work is on radar scatter - so if your following a car that goes through a gatso (or other radar emmitting camera) it will cause the radar single to "bounce off" and that is what you pick up. This is where you get the full distance which is plenty of time to be aware of the speed camera. However if your on the road on your own you do need to be aware that you'll be a lot closer to the camera by the time it picks it up. Usually this is enough time, but not always. I've had mine for about three years now and never drive without it.
The manufacturers say that snooper users have less accidents. I believe this is true because since i've had mine for three years nearly i've had one accident (and that was a hit from behind).Also people who read this and think "they are illegal" THEY ARE LEGAL 100% in the UK. Don't believe me? Pop into the local police station and ask them. However they are not legal in France so you will need to check for the country that you are planning to use them (i have a feeling they are illegal in Ireland too, but not sure on that). I know that in France the police will confiscate them.
Also some people don't like them because they say you should be within the speed limit. But don't forget if your in a 40mph zone going into a 30mph zone, and BHAM camera! You've slowed down, but you've not braked because it's safer to ease up but they've nicked you because you didn't see the camera.Mine has saved me at least 6 points. Whilst driving in rain at night in heavy traffic and through roadworks. I slowed down to the 50mph limit but was just concentrating and keeping up with traffic, then you hear the snooper go off and it reminds you to check the speed.
