Pogo Alert+ GPS and Laser based speed camera detector provides alerts to all fixed and mobile locations such as Gatso, PEEK, and Monitron cameras via a built-in GPS database and plug-in laser detector.
The Pogo Alert Plus comes pre-loaded with it's camera update software, so there's no need for a CD-Rom to be used to install the software. Plus it's both PC and Mac compatible.
The Pogo brand was acquired by Road Angel in 2012 - to view Road Angel's other speed camera detector the Road Angel Gem+ click here.
Pogo Alert Plus GPS and Laser based speed camera detector will confidently alert you to approaching fixed and mobile speed camera locations.
On approaching a speed trap the Pogo Alert+ provides warnings via both it's 1.8-inch colour touchscreen and as an audible alert. When no hazard is in range the Alert Plus displays your vehicles current speed via an on-screen GPS speedometer.
The Pogo Alert Plus is the latest and last system from Origin technologies Ltd (Road Angel Group Ltd acquired the Pogo brand in September 2012). But boy did Origin build their best ever speed camera detector! The Plus was a revamp and rework from the successful Pogo Alert and the Plus model adds:
‣OLED touchscreen - provides darker black levels, richer colours and better contrast than LCDs, making images and icons, etc, look smoother and more natural.
‣Rechargeable battery - providing up to 8 hours operation.
The Pogo Alert Plus provides speed trap alerts either via the updatable GPS database or via the highly sensitive infra-red laser detector. Using the laser detector the Alert Plus provides alerts to live 'in-use' mobile laser guns. The plug-in laser detector can also be removed when not required or when the using the Alert Plus in countries where there usage is deemed illegal i.e. France. N.B. The use of a laser detector is completely legal in the UK.
Comprehensive speed camera alerts
The 1.8-inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen provides all the information you need about an approaching speed camera. By glancing at the Alert Plus's screen (as pictured left) you can see the camera type i.e. GATSO, your speed i.e. 61MPH, the camera enforced speed limit i.e. 60MPH, the road number where the camera is located i.e. A37 a countdown in both seconds and metres to the exact speed traps location, and finally if you're driving below the posted speed limit the screens top and bottom remains blue, but if you're traveling too fast the screen top/bottom changes red, alerting you further!
