Hi guys,

Does anyone have any experience or detail around the GPS database performance in the UK for Genevo detectors? Im very tempted by the Genevo Max but generally in the UK it's regarded that a GPS database as being the most valuable source for alerts.

I am not sure where Genevo get their data from and the update frequency / reliability / accuracy for UK data?

Genovo's website says their GPS database is updated every month, but doesn't say where they source their data from. I would try emailing their support team for an answer.
Many UK motorways have average speed cameras which don't use radar or laser, but rather take a photo of your car as you enter the monitoring zone and again as you leave the zone. A distance/time calculation determines your speed. A GPS database detector, or one of several phone apps is required to locate those cameras.

Defo 100pc need gps, which is why I quite like the escort 360 max int as the companion app seems to show all the fixed camera locations near me.

But would love to see both units in action in the UK. The max seems to support more bands.
