Road Angel Gem - Auto Express Best Speed Camera Detector Winner 2013 - 14th June 2013

The Road Angel Gem has for a second year running taken the No. 1 spot as the best speed camera detector in Auto Express's annual Best Speed Camera Locator award. In total eight speed camera locators were tested including locator apps - to find out which is the best to help you stay within speed limits.

On the winning Road Angel Gem Auto Express said "The GEM is an incredibly easy-to-use speed camera locator from Road Angel. There’s a simple full-colour display, clearly labeled buttons and a mount with a degree of adjustment. It could tell whether cameras were on our side of the road or not, and we were able to report missing cameras. It gave good vocal warnings in plenty of time, as well as visual guidance. A Road Angel subscription costs £65.99 for a year, or £39.99 for six months". To view the Gem on ActiveGPS click here.
