    Was looking at the units on ebay and they are all under 20 quid, always nice to have another working button lol. Do you know if it takes its signals from the blue speed camera type things at the side of the road?

    I use a Traffic Master freeway
    It sits in the middle of the top of the dash and I regularly get asked by people, "oh is that a camera spotter"
    "No it's Traffic master"
    They then look all puzzled

    I got the unit for my Mondeo in 2004
    The licence used to be £50 for two years but is now £35 per year
    You can also update the module every six months, getting rid of the basic functions, but finding that menu is a nightmare!

    Trafficmaster are marketing something called Q-busta.

    http://www.ekmpowershop1.com/ekmps/s...-busta-6-p.asp

    Looks to be a variant of the freeway units, and not too dissimilar to the setup previously found in Vec B's.

    Costs £130 (fitted) but comes with lifetime subscription, so no more annual renewals.

    This is what you get



    anybody think its worthwhile ?
