Bloddy interfering bas***ds!!!!

Ive only recently gone and spent out on a Road Angel 2 as well :cry:

Its not even out of its box yet..........


>contemplates a further rant about the 159mph pig... then realises its been done to death on here already ;) <



Although there was a similar case in the papers today...

Piggie crashed his car @ 90mph, then when the case came to court they had (you'll never believe it could happen :rolleyes: ) LOST the black box from the car.

Case dismissed, trebles all round sir.


Go figure eh?

Bex, Road Angel isn't a laser/radar detector though (unless you plug that bit in), it uses GPS and a database of known locations.

I know I have that bit :p No need to try and make me look stupid, I can do that on my own :moon:

I can't be bothered to shell out money if they are going to do you for having them in your car, that was what I was on about :D

There are several threads about what will and will not be banned GPS is OK, detectors will be ilegal ...

But the bill didn,t take too long to get back on the books .....

But most are now BOTH GPS and Detectors - however as the "detection" bit is useless (By the time it warns you of a fix, they have your speed) then why not just mount it lower down out of sight.

I will be placing my S4 on top of the steering column when this comes into force - it still get's a GPS fix and warns you of speed cameras.

Properly :rofl:

Does anyone know when this Bill will come into effect? They've been saying they're going to ban them for years, and every year it doesn't happen - so what makes it special this time?

RA2 has built-in laser detection, both front and back, and it works damn well if I may say so, however when the law is passed RA will release a software update which will disconnect all the laser detection circuitry making it perfectly legal to use.

I've personally been wondering if that's a clever tactic that they're using - the company officially releases the patch, so they're covered - but none of the owners actually ever installs it. How will the police know that you haven't installed the patch?
