    Default Speed Alert Gizmo.

    Hi all Years ago I had one of the first satnavs on the market and in the bottom corner it had the speed for the road I was on and the speed I was doing,
    if I went over the speed for that road there would be an audible alarm and flash.


    I have a car now with built in satnav so my question is, is there anything I can buy that just has the speed warning system as per this old sat nav?

    Best advice is read the highway code. It has pretty diagrams of the type of roads and the correct speed.

    Great first post
    Why not read the welcome message you received and also the df rules

    There's no speed limit here

    So you are one of the clever dicks who have NEVER EVER been on a stretch of road with road works and wondered if the speed limit has changed again.
    Regarding the highway code I read it back in 1969 and since then racked up 35 years ROSPA safe drivers awards and also have passed Advanced driving test. But you stick to your mindless trolling You Daft Twat.

    If there are road works and they have temporarily changed the speed limit your satnav wont show the temporary speed limit just like on a variable speed limit road!

    If there is road works and traffic calming is in place there will be suitable signage to reflect this

    You would think that with a record like that he would know to look at the temp road signs for the new speed limit!
