Hi,

Agree it's a bummer you cannot program POI's into the Nav system easily. I bought a road angle and it's pretty good. Recently they had some stock shortages that made getting it a tad difficult.

Have seen that nasty new camera at Lindfield as well, it's still not operational as yet (as far as I know) as they still have the signs covered. I updated my road angel today so will see if they have added it to the POI's.

I bought a product called photo blocker (or similar) from the US several years ago. It's like a clear lacquor that you spray onto your number plates, supposed to block the bright flash. Now I have been pinged once at the Spit bridge during the day by the camera there, given no flash required I can see why. HOWEVER at night it seams to work, recently I did get a massive flash on Military road (red light camera) and have yet to receive any nasty mail and it's been 6-8 weeks now.

In terms of radar detectors there are companies selling them in Sydney. A fully consealed unit is about $1400 installed. It is illegal to have one in your car and from memory it's 9 points + $1200 fine if you are caught. Will not work on fixed cameras (as they use sensors in the road, not radar) or lasers. Happy to forward info, just PM me.

Regards,

S
