Hi I was looking to buy a stand alone camera detection unit and came across the Inforad K1. After looking at the info and specs on this unit and also reading about it on this forum I decided to have a look at the INFORAD site. It seems within the last 3 weeks they have brought out a new unit called the K2 with a volume control!. I also notice that it does a CSV (think thats what its called)? which means that it can log your journey and at the end of it put it through Google Earth to trace and see the journey you just went on (or to track some-one else and see where they went). I spoke to Inforad just now and the only difference between the K1 and K2 is the volume control, "but" its 10 dearer than the K1 which is 39.99 and the K2 is 49.99. has any_one bought this new unit yet? as i'm thinking of ordering one this week. I wont have to take my tomtom with me at times then with this small unit.

Since I am about to change to a car with an in-built sat nav I am likely to use my TT540 a little less often (though I certainly won't be dumping it altogether due to the LIVE services)

However I decided to look for an alternative SCD and settled on the Inforad V4e with battery - currently selling for 29.99 on their site i.e. with a 50% discount.

Seems to be a little more sophisticated than the K1/2 but also comes with a 6hr battery which means no more trailing cables - haven't had a chance to test it yet but looks a better buy than the junior versions

Ordered the K2 yesterday direct from Inforad. Should be here tomrrow sometime.

Once i have it and tried it out ill report back here what its like. I went for the K2 as i heard the volume on the K1 is at a level which can get a bit annoying. Being able to "tame" it a little is hopefully worth the extra 10

Because I don't always have the TomTom set up in the car I bought a Snooper S2 http://www.snooperuk.com/products/snooper_s2/index.html off ebay for 25 just to see what they are like. I have to say I've been very impressed, when running it alongside the TomTom the warnings always seem to agree and even though I bought it secondhand off ebay they have honoured the free life time updates.

Direct from them it's currently 44.99 with life time updates.

The clever bit is it uses different coloured lights, Red with a constant beeping if you are over the limit changing to blue with a much reduced volume when you are below the posted limit so you don't even need to take your eyes off the road and it only warns of cameras in the correct direction of travel. Oh and a volume control as well.

I can recommend it.

How is the K2 working out for those who've upgraded from the K1?

Specifically:

what's the "real world" battery life like in comparison?

is the memory capacity any greater (ie able to fit alerts for more countries on)?

does the choice of volume settings make the occasional false alerts less irritating?

Just wondering if anyone out there with a K2 can respond to the questions above. I'm particularly interested in the memory capacity of the K2, as I need a device that can cope with the Netherlands, Belgium and France loaded.

Hiya, I have just bought the inforad k2, the device itself is good but the camera detection rate is crap.

I posted in the the forum above this and will be getting intouch with inforad about the database.

Out of 5 cameras I pass only 4 were detected and the redlight camera it missed had been there for at least 3 years, current active mobile sites were not picked up at all, it may as well not have been switched on.
