RoadPilot has announced the launch of microGo, the world’s smallest GPS speed camera warning device. The stylish speed camera locator can be simply mounted on the windscreen or dash, is just the size of a match-box, and is offered with a graphite coloured case, brushed aluminium face, and configurable coloured backlight which can be adjusted to closely match the instrumentation of any vehicle.

The microGo uses visual and audible alarms to alert the driver to all types of fixed speed cameras across the UK and Northern Europe. Currently microGo includes France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Norway, with Sweden, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland to be added in 2006 at no extra cost. The information stored in microGo can be quickly updated on a daily basis online, from the RoadPilot database. Drivers can also opt for an additional laser detector to protect their licence from mobile and hand-held speed guns, available soon for an additional £49.95 (including VAT).

The microGo is directional and speed sensitive, ensuring no false alarms from cameras covering opposite lanes or when travelling below the speed limit. The display is adaptable, allowing the driver to select exactly what appears on screen, and is operated using one-touch technology.

Clear visual information is provided on the 42mm LCD display screen, including:

  • Position and distance of any speed cameras near the vehicle’s location
  • Actual speed limit in the vicinity of the speed camera
  • Vehicle’s precise speed, to a greater accuracy than a standard speedometer
  • The vehicle’s precise GPS location to within an accuracy of 5-10 metres
  • Vehicle’s proximity to the London Congestion Charging Zone indicating the approach, boundary or within the CCZ
  • Driver’s own definable personal speed limit
  • Rotating compass display showing direction of travel
  • Trip and Odometer showing distance travelled

Drivers can personalise the display to show combinations of a rotating compass; date and time; trip computer; true vehicle speed; and ‘RescueME’ - a GPS positional reading to pass on to emergency services if necessary.

"We are committed to making roads safer by making drivers more aware of their speed and providing early warning of accident blackspot and speed camera locations," commented RoadPilot CEO, James Flynn. "The microGo is a development of RoadPilot’s highly successful GPS speed camera locators, and this new device is superbly small, stylish, highly accurate and very easy to use. We are delighted to add microGo to our product range."

Another recent achievement for RoadPilot is its work with the Automobile Association (AA) to produce AA Navigator, a combined speed camera locator and satellite navigation system for in-car use. AA Navigator uses RoadPilot’s database to identify the locations of every fixed speed camera in Britain.

The microGo is available now through the extensive RoadPilot UK dealer network, direct from www.roadpilot.com . It costs just £199.95 including VAT and has a 12-month warranty. Information updates are free for the first six months and cost £49.95 per year thereafter or only £99.95 for three years.

microGo will launch at the two mph 05 motor shows during November and will be available for sale from 10 November.
