Yes, the very first speed camera warning system that's perfectly legal to use in Europe, and that's based on GPS technology, finally makes the transition to motorcycles.

Back in June last year, I mentioned the French Inforad GPS system {link}, an innovative GPS that holds a downloadable database of all fixed radars and potential areas where mobile radars operate. When you ride close to an area where there's a radar, the system starts beeping and flashing a diode to warn you to slow down.

Well, the folks at Inforad have launched a MOTORCYCLE specific warning system! The new system consists of:
  • A fixed unit, bolted on to your motorcycle (probably under the seat)
  • A removable cartridge holder (the cartridge plugs into your computers USB port)
  • A small antenna

  • A diode on a 20 cm long tube

  • A powerblock wired to your battery

The central unit is connected to the removable cartridge. If new radar positions are available on the internet, you connect the cartridge to the USB port of your computer and download them. The cartridge has enough memory to hold 10,000 radar positions.

Operation


Inforad GPS for motorcycles Coverage
Currently, not all of Europe is covered.

When you ride in one of the countries that is covered, within 20 seconds of reaching a radar, the system will start flashing its diode, warning you of the upcoming speed trap.

It's that simple !

Legality


Believe it or not, but this system is totally legal in Europe. It's not a radar detector. You can do similar with almost any current GPS system, but programming in waypoints/markers.

Cost/Availability


The unit costs 135 € (first year updates are free, after that 36 €/year).
Availability (in France): 25th of July 2005
