It’s Taken 4 Years, But The Brand New Wireless Update ‘TALEX 3’ Speed Camera Detector is *Finally* HERE!
From: Adam Blair
Dear Fellow BTST Member,
“Excited” somewhat understates my feelings that TALEX 3 is *finally* here!
We’ve been working on this for a LONG time. Its been a year and a half of work between the pre-launch to Members and the final device actually being shipped…
I’m extremely ‘OCD’ when it comes to product design, which is the biggest reason TALEX 3 has taken us so long to make.
We’ve been down many blind alleys along the way, including working with several different factories from around the World, and trying multiple different design concepts.
After years of work, I’m thrilled to announce that the TALEX 3 Speed Camera Detector is finally available in the UK:
TALEX 3 Updates Wirelessly!
TALEX 3 comes with a built in SIM card, which *automatically* downloads the latest version of the TALEX Database as soon it’s updated!
This means you’ll always have the very latest Database on your TALEX, without having to remember to plug it in to a computer.
With the rapid proliferation of new speed cameras over the last few years, we made the Wireless Update system the key element of the design. It means you’ve always got the absolute latest TALEX Database, without having to think about plugging it in to download it!
When the Police decide to set up in a new speed camera location, Members can report it to other TALEX users nearby. It will automatically be downloaded to other Users devices in the area.
Members can alert each other about mobile speed trap locations which have just popped up overnight with one click.
When a TALEX 3 User spots a new Mobile Speed Trap location, they can just click the Community Alert button.
TALEX 3 will ask for a confirmation and then that location will *instantly* and privately be broadcasted to other Users’ devices within a 50 mile radius:
If you’re outside the 50 mile radius, but subsequently enter it on that day, your device will automatically download the reported location.
If regular alerts occur in the same location, we add it as a permanent “possible mobile speed trap” location to the master TALEX Database.
We’ve also designed a sophisticated system to eliminate any “bad actors” that consistently report false locations to the network.
The brand new Wireless Updates and User Alerts combined mean that you’ll always have the very latest Database on your TALEX, without having to remember to plug it in to a computer to download the latest database.
Intelligent Alert Distance™
Older generation TALEX models all had a static alert distance.
This meant whether you were driving at 5mph, 50mph or 100mph, the distance between the alert and the speed trap was the same.
TALEX 3 has the brand new Intelligent Alert Distance™ feature for Member Reported mobile speed traps. The objective is to make sure that if you’re significantly above the speed limit, the warning distance will be much greater.
Conversely if you’re crawling along in traffic, it will be much shorter.
Intelligent Alert Distance™ uses several variables to calculate the alert distance. It takes into account that on motorways, mobile speed traps can catch you from a long way away — as well as, crucially, the time you’ll need to slow down safely.
The last thing you want is to have to slam on the brakes as soon as an alert sounds!
Average Speed Displayed During Average Speed Camera Zones!
One of the major upgrades we’ve made in the final stages of development has been that TALEX 3 displays you your average speed during average speed camera zones.
This was incredibly difficult to get right but eventually, we did it.
Now, you will know your average speed between each average speed camera.
Why each camera rather than during the entire speed camera zone?
Because if you are under the speed limit between cameras “a” and “b” due to traffic — or whatever reason — you could still be over the speed limit between cameras “c” and “d”, but you wouldn’t know it because the low speed between cameras “a” and “b” would drag your average speed down.
We’ve designed TALEX 3 to reset your average speed between each physical camera so that there is no guess work on your part.
So long as you know what the speed limit is, it becomes impossible to brake it so long as you keep the average speed displayed at or below the speed limit.
This is a *huge* improvement over other devices that have attempted to start measuring average speed at the start of an average speed camera zone and end measuring it at the end of the zone.
It changes it from being a rough guide to 100% accurate.
Current Speed Display
One of the features of the “old” TALEX devices Users loved was the “always on” current speed display which is extremely accurate.
To get very accurate speed using GPS you have to use high quality commercial grade components that are properly engineered in to the firmware that runs on the device.
I’m sure you’ve seen cheap GPS systems in the past where there’s a ‘lag’ between the vehicle speed and the speed shown on the screen. Sometimes you can be stationary in a traffic jam doing 10mph…
We walked away from several factories who couldn’t solve this ‘lag’ issue.
Even our expensive (non TALEX!) £650 race data logger shows that the car is moving at 1mph while stationary in the pit garage. I can tell you I find this highly irritating!
Not so with TALEX 3.
Just like the “old” TALEX devices, the product is properly engineered, so that the speed you see is the exact speed you’re travelling at.
We’ve always insisted that TALEX 3 must live up to the TALEX Quality Standard.
If you’ve owned a TALEX before, you’ll know what I mean by this.
TALEX products have to feel special – something that you like or even love to own. We’ve taken a LOT of time to develop TALEX 3 to the high standards that were set in the past.
Making amazing products, combined with the best speed camera database in the UK was how TALEX was successful in the past — gaining the #2 spot in the market after the once mighty Road Angel — and that’s the approach we’ve continued to take with TALEX 3.
After the long hiatus developing the TALEX 3 Speed Camera Detector, and the successful pre-launch where Thousands of TALEX legacy users upgraded to TALEX 3, our intention is now to become #1 in the UK Speed Camera Detection market.
We have the best product and the more users we have, the stronger the network of the “speed camera scout” community will become.
We’ve added a non-intrusive compass to the home screen of TALEX 3 for those times you want to make sure you’re heading the right direction on to a Motorway.
Another new feature on TALEX 3 means that you can adjust the speed at which you get an ‘overspeed’ alert approaching a speed camera, or in an average speed camera zone…
You might want it to be set at the exact speed limit, or you may want to increase it a little — according to your personal preference.
You can increase in increments of 1MPH, however the standard setting should be spot on for most users :-)
You can also switch the “overspeed” alerts off altogether…
Choose if you want “Overspeed” Alerts or Not:
As standard, your TALEX 3 will alert you if you’re “overspeeding” during an average speed camera zone or when approaching a speed camera.
However, if you don’t want a continuous reminder to slow down for whatever reason, you can switch this function off.
The new Talex comes with a 2 Year Manufacturers Warranty.
This starts from the date of delivery.
If you have any issues after the 2 year Warranty period, we will endeavour to either fix your unit for free, or replace it for you at a heavily subsidised price.
We want to keep Members happy, and we also want you to remain part of the TALEX 3 network!
It makes sense to operate like this. We’re not (and have never been) a company who want our products to break after the warranty so that you have buy another one. We prefer to have long term Users who contribute to, and benefit from, being part of the network.
90 Day Trial
If TALEX 3 doesn’t live up to your expectations for any reason (or no reason at all), you can return it within 90 days of delivery for a full refund. No questions asked.
Order Your TALEX 3 Speed Camera Detector with 90 Day Trial:
We’ve decided to offer new Users two options to order:
Option #1: Using your Debit or Credit card.
Option #2: Using Bitcoin.
Terms of Order: ⤎
We ask that you don’t claim on the 90 Day Trial until you’ve actually tried and tested your TALEX 3.
This offer is intended for Users who actually want to become a TALEX 3 community Member, while still giving you the protection of being able to return your TALEX 3 within 90 days for any reason.
Database Updates ⤎
To get the pre-launch Deal on TALEX 3, you can order on this page.
On the “thankyou” page you’ll see after the order confirmation, you’ll be able to set up your Direct Debit for your monthly database subscription.
As we’ve always maintained since 2008, TALEX doesn’t believe in “lifetime memberships” because without the monthly contribution from Members, we couldn’t afford to maintain the Database as the very best in the UK.
Incidentally, every single one of our old “lifetime updates” competitors has either gone out of business or stopped updating their databases as we predicted they would, because they have no income to maintain them!
There is no minimum contract term and you can cancel at any time.
You can also restart your subscription at a later date without penalty.
You will receive your data SIM card to enable wireless updates separately from your TALEX 3 device. It should arrive no later than 2 days after your TALEX 3 with full instructions on how to install (it’s extremely simple). If your data SIM doesn’t arrive within 2 days for any reason, please contact us at [email protected] and we will set you up a fresh SIM.
Please note that TALEX 3 does not work with any data SIM. It must be programmed to work with the device, hence why the two are not sent together. Your TALEX 3 will come from our order fulfilment partner, whereas your SIM will come directly from TALEX HQ.
I’m super excited that you’ve decided to become a part of the TALEX 3 community. Together, we are strong.
All the best,
P.S. If you have any questions before ordering, you can email us at [email protected] :-)
