Road Angel PURE drives off with Auto Express’s TOP Spot!

We are delighted to be able to report that the new Road Angel Pure has been given top marks by industry bible Auto Express.

The all new Pure created such a hype and buzz, We were asked by them to send our latest model down to their HQ for a thorough road test as part of their 'Speed camera locators: 2018 group test' as they sought to find the best devices and apps at identifying all types of speed traps on Uk Roads.

As you can imagine, we are absolute delighted to be given the TOP spot with a 5* star rating in their test. Here's what the judges had to say;

It even has Congestion Charge and School Zone warnings. The Pure has been a long time coming but according to Gary Digva, Sales Director at Road Angel Group, it has been worth the wait;

'...more than justifies the cost. It has the biggest and best display and was the most accurate at spotting cameras. We like the way it shows the current limit and warns you if you exceed it. Camera alerts were accurate, and it impressed by ignoring cameras on the opposite side of the road.'

'It can recognise average speed cameras and work out your average, too. The Road Angel app (iOS and Android) enabled us to change settings quickly and easily, and the built-in Wi-Fi allows over-the-air updates. While the subscription is pricey, you get real-time alerts from other users.'

So there you have it. A fantastic review showing that when it comes to quality and performance, the Road Angel Pure is the best on the market.

Christmas comes early for motorists with launch of new Road Angel Pure

Motorists are in for an early Christmas present this year, with the launch of the new 'Pure' from the iconic GPS technology giant Road Angel.

The Road Angel Pure is the first new speed detection product from the group in over 5 years and has been developed following major investment by new owners, who acquired the business earlier this year.

Their most advanced piece of kit to date, the Pure is packed with a wealth of new features, including high resolution graphics, dynamic sound and touch sensitive buttons. It can be instantly updated at the touch of a button with built in WiFi and features wireless charging via the Smart Mount.

The Road Angel Pure also has built-in cooling, alongside journey tracking and road alert technology, all for increased peace of mind. Other new features include scratch resistant, anti-glare, ‘Gorilla Glass’, a 2.4'' clear sunlight readable TFT screen, auto-dimming based on ambient light, ‘intelligent mute’ and other personalisation options and smartphone configuration.

It even has Congestion Charge and School Zone warnings. The Pure has been a long time coming but according to Gary Digva, Sales Director at Road Angel Group, it has been worth the wait;

"Road Angel is an iconic brand and has been a fixture in many motorists’ vehicles for over a decade. What motorists will now see with the new Pure is the fruits of major investment into R and D by the group. We’ve taken all of the best bits of our ever-popular Gem range and then very simply, we’ve listened to what motorists want."

"What came over loud and clear was a need to be able to set the Road Angel Pure up as the individual wanted to best suit them. So, we’ve done that. We have a huge range of options for people to play with to get the unit working just right for them. We’ve also invested significantly in our team of Road Angels who are out on Britain’s roads logging new limits and restrictions and feeding that back to our team instantly."

"Speed cameras are there for your safety but with ever-changing speed limits, it can be easy to make a mistake. The best drivers see the road ahead and drive to suit the conditions. Our advanced speed camera detector keeps motorists up to date and much safer on the roads. This is our most advanced piece of kit ever and one we look forward to sharing with our loyal customers and hopefully, many new ones too."

Release Notes for Firmware - 2.6.0.0531
And New Road Speed Library April 2017

Thank you for choosing ROAD ANGEL Gem or Gem+

As our roads become busier, more congested and more regulated, staying alert to road and traffic conditions is a challenge to everyone. Even the most conscientious driver can have a momentary lapse of concentration that could easily lead to an accident or a fine and points.

ROAD ANGEL Gem or Gem+ is specially designed to be a simple-to-use addition to any vehicle, to alert and warn you in advance of known danger areas. In the comprehensive ROAD ANGEL Gem+ database, which is automatically updated whilst you drive, are stored Police, Local Authority and Department for Transport designated danger spots, including safety camera locations, accident blackspots, and safety camera vans.

Using the latest Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, ROAD ANGEL Gem or Gem+ compares your position with the known danger spot locations and gives you an audible and visual warning as you approach them. An accurate GPS speedometer in the display gives you time to adjust your driving to the approaching danger.

With over 250,000 miles of road around the UK, knowing the speed limit is often guesswork. Gem+ also has an on-board database of road speed limits, so you will know what the speed limit is, at a glance. Join other ROAD ANGEL Gem or Gem+ users in guarding your life, livelihood and driving licence.

The safety of you and your passengers is our prime consideration, and we trust that for all the miles you drive, your ROAD ANGEL Gem or Gem+ will enhance the safety and enjoyment of your journey.

We are pleased to have you as a valued customer and hope you will be delighted with this new firmware and updated Road Speed Library. Having listened to our customers we think the new features will make this product your perfect driving companion.
