You had to know it was coming. I didn’t think about it, but it is so obvious once you do. Naturally they are now making automobile radar detectors with those miraculous little GPS receivers inside them that know exactly where you are, and are thus able to also alert you to red-light cameras and (the new, up-and-coming) speed cameras.
This particular model that I have pictured here is the Cobra XRS 9960G, but it isn’t the only brand doing this now. The Cobra model detects all 15 radar and laser bands and has the very colorful 1-½ inch display window.
Along with the GPS receiver tucked away somewhere in there is a translator that downloads pre-stored information on the locations of the red-light and speed cameras in your area and triggers the alert to remind you to start obeying the law. It has a voice alert that warns you so that you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to find out what the box is beeping for.
Some earlier detectors that do this need to be connected to your pocket GPS receiver to function, but Cobra has come out with this complete package. There is just no end to the uses of these new super-microchips. Personally, I have never had a problem with speed limits to the point that I felt the need to buy one of these devices, but I can understand that many people need the crutch to help them navigate the highways and byways.
As it happens, Amazon is currently offering this model on a special sale with a 54% price reduction. So if you’re interested in reading more about it and perhaps ordering one, CLICK HERE to check it out..
Ok, what sort of amazing electronic gadget will show up next? It’s getting close to the Christmas sales season where this kind of stuff comes available, so let me know what you think is just around the corner. Before we run out and buy one though, we need to get this equipment checked out first. I’m going to speed into the kitchen and get another pot of coffee started. See you back in the day room in a little while.
