Reviews: Reviewed: NextBase 412GW Dash Cam

pocketgpsworld.com

Nextbase are possibly the biggest name in dashcams at the moment with a number of PocketGPSWorld.com users having them installed and I also see many references to them in Facebook community groups when people are looking for dashcams. So for this review we got our hands their current 412GW model to give our opinion on this GPS-enabled dashcam.

Reviews: Reviewed: Spytrack Nano - Personal GPS Tracker

pocketgpsworld.com

Personal GPS devices are ubiquitous these days, most of us will have a GPS capable smartphone or satnav for navigation but there is an entire other market for GPS, tracking. Whether it's to monitor your vehicle, company employees, a pet or child, a GPS tracker may be the solution you're looking for and the Spytrack Nano from Rewire Security is one of these devices.

Looking not unlike the Bluetooth GPS Receivers of old, the Spytrack Nano weighs just 68g and is little larger than a box of matches. Packed inside are a GPS receiver, a rechargeable battery, a GSM Transmitter and a SIM card. And all this costs a very reasonable £69.99.

Reviews: Reviewed: Garmin DashCam 65W

pocketgpsworld.com

Garmin have been going since 1989 and are one of the main stays in the world of GPS - whether that's for aircraft, road vehicles or fitness. In recent years they have been producing a number of dashcams and for the last few weeks I've been using their voice-controlled, GPS-enabled DashCam 65W to review.

Reviews: Reviewed: AlcoSense Excel Breathalyser

Reviewed: AlcoSense Excel Breathalyser


Driving whilst impaired through alcohol is now almost universally regarded as anti-social. Long gone are the days when it was acceptable to drive to the pub, down a skin full and then drive home again. The first blood alcohol limit for drivers was introduced in January 1966 and although numerous campaigns have reduced the number of drink driving casualties the previous steady decline has changed to an increase in recent years with statistics showing a large rise due to "morning after"¯ driving offences.

And that's where I see alcohol breathalysers devices such as those manufactured by AlcoSense that I am reviewing here come into play

Reviews: Reviewed: RAC 05 GPS-Enabled DashCam with Speed Cameras

pocketgpsworld.com


The first thing that caught my eye with the RAC 05 was the built in screen. Oh, that and the fact that it comes bundled with our very own CamerAlert speed camera database. At this point you might be wondering how I can review an item when I have a vested interest in it. But please rest assured that this review WILL be unbiased - partly because the speed camera integration is only a small part of the product but mainly because, well, that's just what we do.

Reviews: Brodit iPad Mini Retina Holder Reviewed

pocketgpsworld.com
Brodit make some of the best device holders on the market. I took a look at the Brodit 521584 iPad Mini active holder with cig-plug. Putting it through its paces in both my personal car and in rental cars I wanted to see how transferrable it could be and of course how stable and secure the mounting solution would be.

I have a number of devices that I use regularly, and a larger number that I use occasionally. I also do a lot of travelling in rental cars so I need a mounting solution that is not only transportable between vehicles, but can easily be installed and removed quickly and easily. Of course the other main criteria are that my device is held firmly and it can be powered as well.

Reviews: Review of the TomTom GO 60 SatNav

pocketgpsworld.com
TomTom have a new range of connected SatNavs that are reverting to the original concept of using your phone data to provide a connection to the TomTom servers to get up to date information.

The new GO x0 devices are differentiated by size. The GO 40 has a 4.3" screen, the GO 50 has a 5" screen and the GO 60 has, you guessed it, a 6" screen. All of the models come with lifetime TomTom Traffic information and also lifetime Map updates.

As I am advancing in years I decided to opt for the TomTom GO 60 with the large 6" screen. The idea was that the larger the screen the better I would be able to read what is on it.

Reviews: Driving in Saudi Arabia

pocketgpsworld.com
As an ex-pat living and working in Saudi Arabia I couldn't help raising an eyebrow and a resigned smile reading the weekly newsletter editorial recently.

The case of the van driver that ran a red light having passed stationary queuing traffic may have seemed outrageous, but it's an all too common event here in Riyadh, where I have lived for the past 4 years. This happens in front of me every few minutes when travelling on Riyadh's road network, something I have to endure for two hours each day.

There are many fatalities with published death rates averaging 19 a day, not to mention the thousands of injuries that could so easily be prevented if the drivers here showed just a little consideration. Oh and a bit of concentration wouldn't go amiss either! Road accidents are the biggest single cause of hospital admissions alone.

Reviews: Reviewed: Garmin StreetPilot for iPhone



The latest version of Garmin's StreetPilot for iPhone offers full route guidance with spoken instructions and on-board mapping. There are add-ons that can be purchased in-app to further enhance the functionality, including Traffic, 3D Panoramas, photoLive Traffic Cameras, Urban Guidance etc. Some of these add-ons are available for free and include PhotoReal Junction Views and 3D Landmarks. This review focuses on the free components of the app as purchased in the Apple iTunes AppStore.

Garmin has had a few forays into navigation on the smartphone platform, all of which failed abysmally for one reason or another. With this in mind I was wondering what the new app would bring to my iPhone. Well I can say that I am pleasantly surprised! At first sight the app looks exactly the same as the established PND software. Indeed if you have a dedicated Garmin SatNav then you will be right at home with this iPhone app.

Reviews: Reviewed: TomTom GO 6000

pocketgpsworld.com

The TomTom GO 6000 is the Dutch navigation stalwart's current top of the range PND. It boasts a massive 6inch screen as well as their latest 'NAV4' software. The 6000 is also the only model of their latest batch of GOs (announced earlier this year) that has its own data connection without the need to connect to your smartphone. So, is bigger really better? Is the new map-centric NAV4 software any good? Can TomTom be forgiven for not including 3rd party POI support (again)?

Reviews: Reviewed: Garmin HUD (Head-Up Display)

pocketgpsworld.com


When Garmin announced the HUD earlier in the year it was the first time in a long time that I've actually thought "wow, finally something to get excited about". But then the cynic in me was saying things like "it's only your speed and directions, it doesn't even show a map" and my optimism dwindled. Once I saw the HUD was available on the Garmin UK website my interest perked up again and I wanted to see if it was just a gimmick or if it was actually a useful peripheral. I finally managed to get my hands on one recently and put my cynicism and optimism to the test.

Reviews: Reviewed: BlackVue DR550GW with Rear Camera

pocketgpsworld.com
Earlier this year we reviewed BlackVue’s DR500 drive recorder and we were very impressed. A sleek, GPS equipped, HD camera that also added WiFi for easy access to live video and review of recorded video files. You can read that review here.

Now BlackVue have gone one better and released the DR550 which shares a similar specification to the DR500, including the GPS and WiFi, and adds a second remote camera that can provide full coverage of the rear view.

The DR550 looks almost identical to its predecessor, the only difference being a socket on the side into which the cable from the rear camera connects. Otherwise the mounting, SD card slot and other features are the same.

Reviews: BubblePix BubbleScope 360 Panorama Reviewed

pocketgpsworld.com

SmartPhones are versatile devices with capabilities from Navigation to Augmented Reality. Nowadays your phone does everything replacing the SatNav, Camera, MP3 player, etc. Oh and surprise, surprise, you can actually make phone calls with it!

One of the more innovative uses for the SmartPhone see the camera being used to make 360 degree panoramas with GPS location embedded. This is not a novel idea and there are many ways to achieve this, including built in software on the latest iPhones. However there are many shortcomings to a lot of these implementations. Bubble Pix have come up with a simple solution to create some stunning panoramas called the BubbleScope.
