“At last I have found a device that does both...”

Written on: 28/04/2010

At last I have found a device that does both navigation AND speed camera alerts !!!
There are lots of them I hear you say, oh yes but non of the others do both properly and have the option of the dedicated camera alerts with proper warnings like the PogoDrive does !!!
The snooper saphire came close but you have to display the navigation map even when you don't want it also I have found the Saphire does NOT detect all of the speed cameras in my area even though they have been in place for… Read Full Review

“Upgraded to Pogo drive from the B2 Origin. As I...”

Written on: 13/06/2009

Upgraded to Pogo drive from the B2 Origin. As I expected the Speed Camera alerts are 2nd to none. This is the best unit by far for alerting you to fixed camera locations and now common mobile sirtes have been included. Cameras which are only located on your side of the road generate an alert to cut down on false alerts.
GPS lock is much better than the B2. The unit locks on very quickly (usually within 5-10 secs) and evens locks on when inside buildings on some occasions.
The Sat Nav side of… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/02/2009

Pogo Drive satellite navigation has excellent maps, tomtom misses some roads, this does not. Easy to use, looks good, plug and play. Only down if there is one is the price, but I bought mine second hand so no complaints… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2009

Pogo Alert Seems to have reasonably good speed camera coverage. I hope that these people stay in business so that I can get updates from the camera database. It is almost impossible to run Update program without crashing. It either "can't open COM3" then crashes, or it just crashes. Pogo support were completely, utterly, explicitly unhelpful. Couldn't imagine worse technical support… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2008 by mrdougal (1 review written)

Overall the unit is attractive to look at but on using it the week points become clear. The speaker is far to low to be heard with the slightest volume from the radio. The day screen cannot be switched to night and is far to bright for night use. There is no choice of voice, option by default is female, not that this is a problem but an option would have been nice. The unit has a very flimsy bracket to which the window suction thing attaches and looks it will not stand the test of time. I… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/10/2008 by Martin Bourke (1 review written)

Can not always get a signal even in very wide open spacers. I have traveled for 28 mins without a signal in Liverpool on a clear sunny day! Sent it back and it came back the same. very poor. The worst thing I have ever had and I am never off eBay. Poor service and a sad product. Be warned… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2008 by deviant1966 (1 review written)

Very pleased with my Pogo Drive sat nav, it has identified EVERY camera, with no false alerts (cameras on elevated stretches of road when driving on the road underneath and the unit stays silent!) It also shows you that it is aware there is a camera on the opposite side of the road on its screen but does not alert you to it, great idea. Altered only once to a laser and there WAS a van on the over bridge. I have confidence in this product… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2008 by spartan2 (1 review written)

There are so many features on the Pogo Drive it becomes too much for the screen to cope with, because of this it's almost impossible to make the choice you wanted from the overly complicated touch screen menu.
Despite being to over the phone they had made over 1000 updates in the last 12 months my £99 Garmin is superior in mapping and speed camera alerts… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2008 by streets123 (1 review written)

I wanted a device to advise me of upcoming speed cameras. Now I know nothing about GPS systems and this is my first. I found out about Pogo on the internet, and after reading about how good they are regarding speed camera alerts, I purchased a Pogo Drive. I have only had the unit a few days however, I am very happy with it. The feature I love about this unit is its 'Safety Warning Only' mode... This means you don't have to have a destination programmed in etc... It simply alerts you to speed… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2008

I upgraded from the Origen B2 so I didn't look any further. Perhaps I should have done... Display too bright for night driving, and too stark-white generally, so it commands too much attention, and is a driving distraction. Menus are not good and need getting used to. No way of feeding back issues to get them acknowledged and (hopefully) corrected - it needs a user-forum. Needs a case… Read Full Review

“I purchased my Pogo Drive after swapping it in for my...”

Written on: 24/09/2007 by syediw6 (5 reviews written)

I purchased my Pogo Drive after swapping it in for my Origin B2. I had been very impressed with the B2 and so, I thought I'd give the new Pogo equipment a go.

My main criterion was that it had to be a very accurate camera spotter and less importantly, it had to be reasonably decent satnav for the very occasional use.

I was very impressed with the camera software - it never missed a camera. It was easy to update, but even though I could rely on it spotting cameras, I couldn't rely on the… Read Full Review
