Novus Delta Explained

The Novus Delta then provides the speed limit at that speed camera site and the green LED display on the front of the GPS Novus Delta provides additional information to the voice announcements.

Delta alerts

When a speed camera warning is triggered, a chime is heard followed by an announcement such as 'Warning speed camera 500 yards ahead - limit 30 miles per hour', the speed limit at the speed camera site will flash for eight seconds, before going back to displaying the vehicle's speed. This will typically happen at 500 yards from the speed cameras position, (in some cases a 500 yard warning is not ideal because of the road layout). A second chime is heard at 200 yards from the camera site, and if the vehicle is still over the speed limit, a continuous warning is heard 'Warning – reduce speed' until the vehicle speed drops to the speed limit, or the camera site is passed.


Installing the Novus Delta is easy via the supplied magnetic dash mount, and the supplied vehicle power adaptor will work in vehicles between 12-24 volts. Allowing the Novus Delta to also be used in HGV's and other commercial vehicles.
