Hi all!

Unfortunately, being the indecisive person I am, I'm looking for some opinions! I have recently changed jobs which now means I'm travelling a LOT more than usual. I have a TomTom GO 510 which deals nicely with the navigation side of things and I've loaded the POI speed cam database from this site, however there are times when I may not have the TomTom with me (when the missus "borrows" it! Rolling Eyes ) but would still like Speed Cam warnings. I'm looking at 3 choices: Origin B2, Road Angel Compact or Road Pilot MicroGo.

I've read all the reviews, the Origin seems to get the most votes but I was wondering if anyone here had any experience of the units and could give me their opinions?! Especially as the Origin seems to have been on the market the longest!

Thanks!!!

Hi Mike! Unfortunately I have a rickety old Nokia 6230 - not very Smart at all! I was kinda hoping for something discreet which was quick and easy to plug in each time I hopped in the car. I use O2 and their WM2005 handsets are a little on the large side for me...

Thanks for replying tho!

How about just buying another tomtom? Halfords sell the tomtom one now for a little over 130, quite a bit cheaper than the other options you were thinking about (I think). You could then simply put another copy of the database from here onto it.
