Hey benno Welcome to the site. Looked pretty trick but the noise would drive me up the wall as well. Did I hear it right that it was able to tell the speed limits along the way?

Wish I had never heard of Southern Cross.

Laminge From what I saw of the system it looked to have a computer system and alarm separate to the GPS. Made the worse sort of sound every time you got too close to the car in front or if you went over the speed limit.
