After many years faithful service (I think I bought it in 2005), it’s now time to upgrade my Road Angel (the device that helped me to keep my Licence free from additives!!!) – shown above – to the latest incarnation of the device.
My original Road Angel was upgraded to the ‘plus’ version a few years later, and at the time, it was one of the best devices on the market. Fast forward to 2011 and we now have the sleek-and-shiny ‘Road Angel Connected’. The significant part of the name is the last word – connected. This means that I don’t have to remove it from the car and connect it to the PC to update the databases on it – it does it, automagically via an in-built sim-card. Add to that, it’s got a colour screen and a tracking function (so it’s possible to pinpoint me on a map – or the car, if it gets stolen), it’s a real overdose of super-tech. Lovely!
I’d considered other makes and brands, but in the end, I settled for this beauty! Best of all, I was able to haggle the price down direct from the manufacturers from an eye-watering £294 (eeek!!) to a much more reasonable £169.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
