Welcome

The Quest and SPIII can have a map of the cameras loaded but won't give a warning. The Quest 2 is the only one which will warn you when you are near the cameras so that's the one to go for.

Quest 2 also has all the Europe maps pre-loaded rather than just the UK or a single country.

The Street Pilot III is well outdated now, don't buy it.

Also consider the Nuvi range which has a bigger touch screen and also supports the "POI Loader" for Speed Cameras. The Nuvi is not waterproof like the Quest is though.

Also look at the RAM mounts - http://www.ram-mount-uk.com/ they aren't as Gucci as the Touratech ones but they are substantially cheaper.

As for the locking mechanism, I don't have a problem with slipping my Quest into my pocket. It isn't that much bigger than a mobile phone. You really don't want to leave it on the bike for longer than a few minutes or some toe rag will find a way to smash it off......

Probably just use the locking function for the petrol station and when parked up but still close by just for peace of mind.
Price wasnt the issue its gonna be my birthday prezzie
(just the bracket unfortunatly)

Cheers for your help i see your on here a lot think i may be talking again once i get the quest
