Red Light GPS Device Lacks GPS Navigation

 Red Light GPS Device Lacks GPS NavigationBy and large, you would assume that when you buy a standalone GPS device for your car that this device would be able to provide you with turn-by-turn directions, as well as information about points of interest and so on. That is not the case with this particular product from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Sure, it’s still a GPS device and it is still meant for use inside of your car, but it doesn’t do anything in terms of providing directions. Instead, its sole purpose is to warn you about any red light cameras in your vicinity. This way, you would run through the intersection and you can avoid the pricey tickets that may otherwise follow.

As such, this product is appropriately named the Red Light Camera Detector. It uses the GPS side of the equation to figure out where it is and then it matches the location up with an internal database of 6,000 red light and speed camera placements in Canada and the United States.

If you’re looking for any other points of interest aside from these camera locations, you’re out of luck. It’s also a little shocking to hear that the Red Light Camera Detector retails for a whopping $200. One other way you can save on those red light tickets is, well, not to run through red lights in the first place.
