Hey, I'm OK. Pleased you've noticed. This section is a bit lonely. But not a lot of places where RA users can have a chat, so thought I'd have a go. I got a Vantage because I've got so many things I need to connect to the computer to update, that OTA updating seemed a good thing, plus getting reports of currently active camera vans. I'd hoped other RA owners might contribute. I will chunter on, though I think there's probably not much left to say.

......and finally, can't seem to get an EE 2G signal anywhere locally that I used to get one, including my back garden. Could be my unit has locked up, but that is not my prime suspect. I will take it away with me and try in further flung locations. Unfortunately I think this might be the end of it.

It's not since Orange amalgamated with T-Mobile and 'rationalised' their masts is it?

Yes, the dates coincide exactly with their mast 'rationalisation'.

Well I've actually found one place outside my grandson's school where the device connects. Basically this shows that the unit is still working, and so confirms the signal coverage is poor in my part of West London.

And I've got two EE masts within about 500 yards of my house in Bexhill. The rest of Bexhill is not so densely served though.

Perhaps you'd like a Vantage, an attractive little feature for your windowsill Driving

School yesterday 4 resets [plus off/on] to connect. Wonder why one reset is not enough?
