Speed Camera Detection

Are you an Accidental Speeder?

With many speed cameras around the country, it’s very hard not to be caught speeding, whether it’s on purpose or the occasional time you’re going downhill with a slight lack of concentration.  Also, depending on the speed, most car speedometers may be slightly out on their calibration.

There are many devices on the market that claim to do this and that, but here at Source we only deal with the products we use ourselves so we know they work well.

_DSC6107GPS System

The first product we recommend is purely a GPS device.  These products inform you of the position of a fixed camera site or a possible mobile site in relation to where your vehicle is, irrelevant of the type of camera, be it the new style digital camera or the older style radar system.

Most of the systems we use for this will, while you’re driving, show you your driving speed and then when you come to the range of a fixed camera site, the unit will tell you the speed limit of the particular road and count you down until you reach the camera.  If it’s a mobile camera site, then the unit will advise you to take extra care as you are approaching a location where there sometimes is a mobile van.  Depending on price and features there are several products we stock to give you a variation on usability.


Laser Parking System

_DSC4878The other product we use is a laser parking system.  The system is designed to assist the driver when parking a vehicle and prevent unnecessary damage to the bodywork, as well as warning of approaching hazards.  We believe this product will increase your driving pleasure and keep you and your vehicle safe from unnecessary damage for many years to come.  The unit is supplied with twin laser sensor heads which are fitted to the front of the vehicle, or  quad laser sensor heads which are fitted to the front and rear bumpers of the vehicle.

The unit uses the licence free 904nm laser frequency. The same frequency as used by several motor manufacturers like Nissan’s adaptive cruise control system, which uses laser to determine the distance immediately in front of the vehicle and to deactivate the cruise control if the stopping distance is considered to be too short.  Police laser guns also use the same 904 nm frequency.

The best car audio in Sheffield! Paul spent over an hour with me just talking about everything, door speakers, amps, sub woofers & these guys really know their stuff. Chris (who did the work on my car) spent ages making sure I had no rattles at all. I got a top of the range set up within my budget, head unit, amp, sub & door speakers & cannot speak highly enough for these guys, i learned loads & got a system that properly rocks. If you want car audio, go see these guys, even if just for a quick chat, you’ll see what the hype is about. 10/10

I recently visited Source Sounds to have a new security system fitted to my Land Rover Defender. They are 170 miles from where I live. The whole experience from the time I first made contact with them was superb, trouble free and a pleasure. Whilst there I also invested in a dash cam which they hard wired and fitted for me. Despite all of the work carried out, when I collected the vehicle there was no sign that anyone had interfered with vehicle, inside and out. Paul spent an hour plus with me on collection to explain the use of the items fitted. I was also assisted with hotel transport and securing my vehicle overnight. No wonder people travel miles to use their service. I won’t hesitate to use again.

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you guys at Source, especially Chris and Paul who over the past few weeks have impressed me no end. I went to them with a typically sub-standard BMW sound system, not really knowing how it should be improved and had a really friendly informal chat with Chris about the best route to take. What has impressed me most is that never at any point are the people here pushy – they really listen to your requirements and budget and make honest suggestions and give a number of options. Chris and Paul both spoke in some detail about what the issues were and how the problems could be addressed and I felt I was in safe, honest hands throughout the upgrade process. A whole new set of 3 way speaker set up and a new amp later the car sounds crystal clear like never before. Not wanting to change the head unit, the guys had solutions as to how to keep the car looking as factory as possible, and even asked me back in so they could check how the system has bedded in. Old components are carefully removed, allowing you to have them replaced should the car ever be sold. Their installation couldn’t be faulted and their customer service is genuinely excellent – polite, highly knowledgeable and above all honest, with their customer’s best interests at heart. I have no reservations in fully recommending them and have no doubt I will be back in future. Thanks again gents !! Jason
