The GPS Angel V4 is a warning device that sits on a vehicle’s dashboard to alert the driver to locations where cameras have been installed to detect speeding and stoplight violations. The device, which operates with a rechargeable lithium ion battery, has a database of more than 6,000 camera locations. Drivers can update the database online.
The GPS Angel uses satellite technology to match the vehicle’s current location against the list of camera locations. Users can set up personal location alerts to warn them when they are speeding in school zones or other predetermined locations.
The manufacturer says that since cameras are often placed in high-risk accident areas, the GPS Angel can alert drivers where they need to exercise extra caution. Bryn Jenkins, the company’s chief operating officer, said, “Not only will the GPS Angel help you be a better driver but it will also help consumers avoid expensive traffic fines and protect their license.” The product carries a suggested price of $129 and is available at retailers and at gpsangel.com.
