Has anyone fitted one of these yet and do they work. If so which is the best and most 'user friendly' model etc.
Was it easy to fit and how much did it cost?
 
This shows my Snooper S6R Neo mounted on my VFR.

The Snooper isn't as well packaged as the one box solutions like the Road Angel 2 but, having tested them back to back, it performs better. It's also possible to unplug the radar/laser detector from the Snooper so that it will still comply with the law when they make those illegal.

I am currently selling my s6r-neo to get the angel, but i am only doing this because i didnt think the neo was suitable for a bike,

1. What do you do when it rains, put it in a bag?
2.can you see screen ok when sunlight on it?
3Where have you mounted the detector?

Cheers

1 No, it's fine where it is just inside the double bubble. It's been exposed to some fairly serious Scottish downpours as well, but the location does help. Mounting it on the GS might be another matter.

2 Yes and in any event you'd be able to see the flashing red warning arrows. I also have the audible warnings pumbed in via a pair of Sony Phontopias installed in Cool Carbon's custom moulded earplugs.

3 It's on top of the instrument binnacle, attached to the screen with the suction mount and to the top of the binnacle with heavy duty Velcro. You can just see the rear end of it, above the white rev counter dial, in the picture.

Don't buy a Road Angel 2 unless you want to listen to Tiffany Dell's dulcet tones, will accept poorer overall performance and appreciate that the whole unit will become illegal some time next year.

I think they should be made compolsary.
If Speed Camaras are put in place such as accident Black spots (as everyone says they are), then these will act as an early warning system to ensure you are extra carefull when approaching them,

but if they are there as a money generating scheme (As the rest of people think they are), then of course they will banned otherwise they don't get there money ....

Me... I just keep my eyes open and my speed adjusted to the suroundings
 
I use a Morphius it is the only one that is water resistant & is designed with bikes in mind I find it pretty good, there is no external audio outlet for headphones but it is plenty bright & i have it fitted just below my line of sight so don't have any problems seeing it when it starts flashing
 
Of course non of these will stop you being zapped by the long range lasers or vascar.

Apart from the fixed speed cameras do they actually pick up anything else?

Adam,

.. the guys at www.pocketgps.co.uk have a database with 'known' speed cameras and it invites alll users of it to post any new ones going up. Its offered as a public domain utility.

"Apart from the fixed speed cameras do they actually pick up anything else?"
... just those Fen boyz speeding along the A14 .

:D very good Steve

Still, the amount of people on the A14 that drive into each other on a regular basis probably warrant a camera every half mile.
