The Novus Alpha features a unique vehicle profile setting from car to HGV, which allows the user to select the vehicle type that they are driving and receive speed limits specific to their vehicle.

The RoadPilot MicroGo also provides alerts to speed cameras in the UK and Western Europe, whilst the Novus Alpha provides alerts to UK only.

Pogo Alert

The stylish and compact Pogo Alert speed camera detector features a slightly larger colour TFT screen than the RoadPilot MicroGo.

The Pogo Alert also features a Laser detector for detection of mobile Laser based speed camera vans and other handheld devices. With the RoadPilot MicroGo the screen colour can be changed to match your vehicles instruments.

The RoadPilot MicroGo provides alerts to speed cameras in the UK and Western Europe, whilst the Pogo Alert currently provides alerts to UK only, though a European database is planned to be released before the end of the year.

Both systems have been designed to be plug and play and can also be easily transferred from vehicle to vehicle.
