Road Angel

Hi guys and gals

Has anyone who's got the road angel noticed the difference in speed between the angel and car speedo?

My car's speedo seems to run 4/5 mph faster than I'm doing :shock: which is good I think.

Just thought I'd let you know :wink:

Hi Neil, you are correct in that statement, the roadangel being gps driven is updated every second and is far more acurate than your speedo will be.
Its a real plus when town driving and there are cameras around, cos you know you are actually nicely below the given speed limit.

Car manufactuers have to make the speedo read higher than it really is, so in effect you drive slower, as the systems such as 'road angel' and 'origin b2' use GPS there speed reading is much more accurate than the car's.

if you need anymore info on speed trap detectors or satellite navigation just give me a PM or you can contact a very helpful company called 'Nav Now' on 0871 7500 111, i think ops: .
