My Focus power sockets go off when you switch off the ignition, although there is a delay of around 5 minutes. Maybe yours does the same?


Mine is an 06 Focus and seems not to turn off. I've left my Bluetooth A2DP audio receiver plugged in numerous times overnight to charge it up. If it went off after 5 minutes or so then I wouldn't have a charged receiver. Wonder if it's something added in later models? I have considered getting it re-wired to make things like this easier but it actually has it's perks - when I stop for petrol then the kids DVD players and/or tablets can still have power!!


Probably then as mine is a 13 plate.

There is nothing messy about the lane markings. There is clearly a give way line across the carriageway as well as the usual give way to traffic on the roundabout rule. Lock MaFt up and throw away the key. Laughing Or better still, Take him out and shoot him. Catch 22.



Agreed. The fact the lorry exited into lane 1 on leaving the roundabout is perfectly acceptable and he/she had priority. MaFt should have given way Wink

If I'm not mistaken, he grew clever very quick, and DID give way - he has dashcam footage to prove it!

Lucky it wasn't someone on a push bike. He would have been on the web quick as a flash.

It's still not up to Ron Pickering's standard though.

A brief YouTube explaining who Ronnie Pickering is. Thumbs Up

For those of you who may have missed it, here's the original Ronnie Pickering dashcam (helmet cam?) footage. Warning there is some (a lot of) swearing!!

We bought ours when PocketGPSWorld ran an offer and have been reasonably happy with it. We turned off the Low Light Warning because, frankly, it was doing our heads in by constantly alerting even when driving on full beams in a well light area.

The only real problem, and one I think is far more detrimental to the unit, is the very low volume of the safety camera alerts. The unit it set to full volume but if there is a conversation in the car, or worst still music playing, you wouldn't stand a chance of hearing it. It's not exactly obvious even when there is nothing else going on. This seems strange as the satellite lock alert is very loud, if the camera alerts were that loud you'd never miss one! Whilst I'm not somebody who wants to drive too fast it's always possible you could be caught out by an unexpected, or badly sign posted, change in limit and miss an alert.

I'm hoping this is something a subsequent update may resolve.

Has anybody noticed that the dash cam still thinks that they are still driving on an average speed road when turning off and driving down a road which is not monitored by any further speed cameras?
