I'm surprised that this hasn't attracted more attention!!!

Surely this is the standalone device that people have been asking for?

I'm either not getting the info from thier site, or their site doesn't contain sufficient info. How does the Inforad warn you of approaching cameras? Does it give different warnings for different types of cameras? Does it warn you of the speed? Can you modify the warnings?
Is there any way of recording/marking the positions of new cameras?
Etc.

Has there been a review? Can someone who uses one comment on how they find it? What are the differences between the 2 models?

The Inforad K1 looks to be a good option if the database is directional and voice driven.

I've asked for a review unit.

Bear in mind that our partnership is for an initial one year period only.
Although Inforad offer a lifetime subscription our database is only available whilst our agreement remains active.

Well done!! Other docs are hidden under the "Glove Box" link in the page footer.

So from that and the other docs:
JockTamsonsBairn Wrote:

Yes, Speed Cameras, Mobiles, Specs and your own POIs.
JockTamsonsBairn Wrote:

No.
JockTamsonsBairn Wrote:

Distance only?
JockTamsonsBairn Wrote:

Yes. You can record POIs, but no indication that you can record the type.
JockTamsonsBairn Wrote:

See V4 & K1

This is very interesting! How will the database update will it be via the "Inforad Manager Software" or is there a manual download from here and then the "Inforad Manager Software" updates the device?

We are supplying data to Inforad. They will distribute it to their devices in the normal manner.

I had a look at the Inforad on Youtube and the alert method would annoy me very quickly.

I have purchased a K1 because of the V3/4 warning system is over the top with all those flashing leds and beeps.

Have to see how well it works when it arrives Laughing

Plus the fact that the K1 is so small but also uses the SIRF Star III chipset.

Let us know how you get on with the K1 Pocketgps Smile

I emailed Inforad to double check their use of the PGPSW database and this was their reply:

We do use pgps but we use our own database as well,

You need to update every 3 to 4 weeks as there are always new cameras going up!


They said you use the normal Inforad software to update the device rather than via this website. They also say they support fixed and mobile cameras, so for 40 I'm very tempted! I'm always wary of you get what you pay for though.....
