Thank you for buying your new ROAD ANGEL Navigator
As our roads become busier, more congested and more regulated, staying
alert to road and traffic conditions is a challenge to everyone. Even the most
conscientious driver can have a momentary lapse of concentration that
could easily lead to an accident or a fine and points.
ROAD ANGEL Navigator is specially designed to be a simple-to-use
addition to any vehicle, to alert and warn you in advance of known danger
areas. In the comprehensive ROAD ANGEL Navigator database are stored
Police, Local Authority and Ministry of Transport designated danger spots,
including accident black spots and safety camera locations.
Using the latest Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology, ROAD
ANGEL Navigator compares your position with the known danger spot
locations and gives you an audible and visual warning as you approach
them. An accurate GPS speedometer in the display gives you time to adjust
your driving to the approaching danger.
The safety of you and your passengers is our prime consideration, and we
trust that for all the miles you drive, your ROAD ANGEL Navigator will
enhance the safety and enjoyment of your journey. Join other ROAD
ANGEL Navigator users in guarding your life and livelihood.
We are pleased to have you as a valued customer and hope you will be
delighted with your fully integrated ROAD ANGEL Navigator. Having
listened to our customers we think the new features will make this product
your perfect driving companion.

Register Now!
Register your ROAD ANGEL Navigator immediately after purchase. This is
important for two reasons:
•
You cannot update the unit until it has been registered. Database
information will be significantly out-of-date at the time of purchase and
should be updated as soon as possible (see page 39).
•
Without registration, we cannot resolve warranty issues, log queries or
solve problems with your ROAD ANGEL Navigator.
REGISTER your unit online:
1. Go to www.blackspot.com
2. Click on the Product Registration link. The Product Registration form is
displayed.
3. Enter your ROAD ANGEL Navigator's serial number. You can find this
on the base of the unit.
4. Click on the Next button. Once your details have been entered, you will
be prompted to download the update software directly to your PC. The
registration process normally takes one full working day – you can then
use the software to update your ROAD ANGEL Navigator (see page 39).
If online registration is not possible, please call the Registration helpline
(recorded) on: 0870 084 7439. Leave your name, address and telephone
number and we will forward a registration form to you the same working day
(Mon – Fri).
7
Subscriptions
Your ROAD ANGEL Navigator comes with a free subscription for six
months of database updates and product support. It is critical to the
operation of your ROAD ANGEL Navigator that you update the unit regularly
and so continued subscription is essential. With constant additions to the
ROAD ANGEL Navigator database (1000+ sites per year), the benefit of
your ROAD ANGEL Navigator and the protection it provides will be
dramatically reduced if you fail to maintain your database.
You can also subscribe online at http://www.blackspot.com/subscriptions/.
Warranty
Your ROAD ANGEL Navigator is guaranteed for one year from the date of
purchase from all defects that occur with normal use. If your unit fails to
perform as specified in these instructions, please visit:
http://www.blackspot.com/warranty
Security
Owing to the high number of thefts, we strongly suggest you remove your
ROAD ANGEL Navigator and its bracket from view when you leave your
vehicle.
Please contact Blackspot Interactive Ltd if your unit is stolen or lost. Each
ROAD ANGEL Navigator is identified by a unique serial number on the
base. We can disable a unit through our security systems and detect any
attempt to re-register it. This has frequently resulted in the safe return of a
ROAD ANGEL Navigator to its rightful owner.

2. Installation
This section shows you how to install ROAD ANGEL Navigator in your
vehicle. ROAD ANGEL Navigator can also be used as a free-standing unit
for GPS navigation whilst walking or for route planning prior to your journey
(see page 27).
Unpacking
Empty all the parts out of the box and familiarise yourself with each item.
Each pack contains:
•
The ROAD ANGEL Navigator unit (SD card is pre-installed)
•
A mounting cradle
•
A windscreen mounting arm
•
User manual
•
Anti-glare screen protector
•
Cables:
•
•
•
1 x Straight power lead
1 x Sprung power lead
1 x USB cable
Mounting the Unit
ROAD ANGEL Navigator has a high sensitivity GPS antenna and requires a
clear view of the sky to receive information from GPS satellites. We highly
recommend that ROAD ANGEL Navigator is positioned in the centre of the
front windscreen, low down, just above the dashboard. If screen glare is a
problem in this position, try installing the unit beside the driver's “A-pillar”.
Check that the GPS reception operates correctly in this position.
If you want to install ROAD ANGEL Navigator anywhere else within your
vehicle, you may require an external GPS antenna. Please contact
Blackspot Interactive Ltd or visit www.blackspot.com for details.
Use with UV and Heated screens
UV screens block GPS signals from entering the vehicle, stopping ROAD
ANGEL Navigator from acquiring its position. This can be a problem with
certain models of vehicle, i.e. BMW, Mercedes, Renault, Peugeot & Citroen.
9
Heated screens can also affect GPS signal strength.
If your vehicle has a UV or heated screen, you may need an external
antennae (please contact Blackspot Interactive Ltd or visit
www.blackspot.com for details). Most vehicles fitted with a UV screen have
a defined section behind the rear view mirror where you can fit the
antennae.
Installing ROAD ANGEL Navigator
The following instructions describe the installation of ROAD ANGEL
Navigator:
1. Adjust the mounting arm as follows:
a) Unfasten the vertical adjustment knob, and change the angle of the
central joint so that the connecting flange is vertical when the suction
cup is held against your vehicle's windscreen. Tighten the knob to
lock in place.
b) Unfasten the horizontal adjustment knob, and change the horizontal
angle of the connecting flange so that it is facing in the required
direction: in line with the vehicle, towards the driver, or towards the
passenger. Tighten the knob to lock in place.
2. Hold the suction cup against the windscreen. Rotate the lever clockwise
to apply suction. For maximum adhesion, it may help to dampen the
suction cup beforehand.
3. Take the power lead, and plug it into the socket on the rear of the cradle.
Don't connect the other end to the cigar lighter socket yet.
4. Slide the cradle onto the mounting arm's connecting flange.
5. Take your ROAD ANGEL Navigator, and lift up the GPS Receiver panel.
6. Slide the ROAD ANGEL Navigator's power switch to the On position
(towards the navigation buttons – see page 4). The device will start to
load up.
7. Slide the unit into the cradle and press firmly into place (support the
cradle underneath whilst you do this).
8. Route the power cable to the cigar socket. Ensure that it does not
interfere with any of the vehicle's controls or airbag modules. If you use
your cigar socket for any other devices, a dual adaptor may be used.
You are now ready to use the unit for the first time (see page 13).

Hardwiring
ROAD ANGEL Navigator has a 5V regulator built into its power cable. If the
cable is cut and used to hardwire the unit into the vehicle, you will damage
the ROAD ANGEL Navigator.
To hardwire ROAD ANGEL Navigator into your vehicle, purchase a cigar
socket, wire this into the power system and use with the supplied cable.
Consult an auto electrician if you are unsure how to carry out
this procedure as incorrect hardwiring may affect the validity of
vehicle and product warranty. Consult vehicle manufacturer if
in doubt.
12
Getting Started
1. Find a location outside with a clear view of the sky (away from obstacles
such as tall buildings and over-hanging trees – these may delay or
prevent satellite acquisition).
2. Plug the power lead into the cigar lighter socket. If your socket is
ignition-switched you will need the ignition to be on.
3. Press the On/Off switch in the top right corner (see page 2).
ROAD ANGEL Navigator displays the following screen.
If you have not updated your ROAD ANGEL Navigator, the display
illuminates red and prompts you to ‘Please register your ROAD ANGEL
Navigator and execute an update. Any key to continue’. Press any
button to clear this screen. When you have updated ROAD ANGEL
Navigator, this message will not appear again.
4. The display illuminates blue and shows a satellite symbol:
The first time the unit is switched on, it must acquire data from a
minimum of 4 satellites to establish its position. THIS MAY TAKE UP TO
13
45 MINS. After approximately 4 hours use, ROAD ANGEL Navigator's
internal battery will be charged sufficiently for it to be able to memorise
its position. Subsequent starts will acquire satellites within 1-2 minutes.
5. When ROAD ANGEL Navigator has established its position, the display
shows your speed (0 if you are stationary).Your unit is now ready for
use.
14
3. Basic Operation
Understanding the Display
Safety Mode
In its normal standby mode, with no route selected, ROAD ANGEL
Navigator's display shows your speed, satellite reception (indicated by a
flashing 3-bar sequence – green: good satellite signal (3D fix), yellow:
searching (2D fix), red: no signal and the status of audio output:
Speed Measurement
ROAD ANGEL Navigator calculates your vehicle speed from GPS data.
The speed is updated every second and, at a constant speed, is highly
accurate. If you are accelerating or decelerating, the displayed value will lag
behind the actual speed by a small margin.
You may find a difference between the reading on your vehicle's
speedometer and ROAD ANGEL Navigator. This is because all vehicles are
manufactured with a tolerance on the speedometer to allow for tread depth,
tyre size and pressure changes.
15
Alert Mode
When you are approaching a known danger zone, the display shows an
alert message and an icon indicating the type of hazard and an advisory
speed limit. The table on the next page shows the types of alert icons
displayed by ROAD ANGEL Navigator.

In addition:
•
The Proximity-to-hazard counter increases from 1 to 5 bars as you get
closer to the danger zone.
•
Speech warnings will tell you the type of zone followed by an audible
tone that increases with your proximity to the hazard.
USE THE ADVISORY SPEED LIMIT FOR GUIDANCE
ONLY. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS KNOW THE SPEED LIMIT
AND TAKE ACCOUNT OF DRIVING CONDITIONS.
When you have passed the danger, ROAD ANGEL Navigator returns to
standby mode.
Muting Audio and Speech Warnings
You can stop audio and speech warnings temporarily when you are in a
danger zone, or permanently from Standby mode.
To temporarily mute audio and speech warnings when in a danger zone,

Adding and Deleting Danger Zones
Blackspot Interactive Ltd. are constantly updating the central database of
danger zones. You can be of great value to all ROAD ANGEL Navigator
users by noting new information accurately, adding it to your ROAD ANGEL
Navigator's database and then downloading the information to our central
database. All general information is verified by Blackspot Interactive Ltd.
before it is added it to the central file.
PLEASE ONLY ADD OR DELETE DANGER ZONES WHEN IT IS
SAFE TO DO SO.
Deleting zones
You can delete any of the locations stored in the ROAD ANGEL Navigator
database. When your ROAD ANGEL Navigator alerts you to the required
danger zone:
1. Press the DELETE (“D”) button on the front of the unit (see page 2).
2. Confirm the deletion by pressing DELETE again.
When a location has been deleted it can only be restored by reentering the location (see Adding new locations, below) or by
requesting a factory reset for your next update: email
[email protected] with your serial number and contact details.
Note: By using a factory reset all your personally stored
locations will be lost.
Adding new locations
You may add new locations to the FIXED, MOBILE, AVERAGE,
BLACKSPOT and SCHOOL areas of your ROAD ANGEL Navigator
database. When you update your ROAD ANGEL Navigator these new
locations will also be downloaded to the central database, and can then be
verified by Blackspot technicians for inclusion in future updates.
ROAD ANGEL Navigator needs to be travelling in excess of 4 MPH
to calculate the heading for the location.
When your vehicle is precisely alongside the new location:
1. Press the STORE (“S”) button on the front of the unit (see page 2). This
will confirm your location.
2. Choose the type of warning and then the speed limit.
3. Press STORE to confirm your choice.
37
Adding an Average Speed monitoring section (SPECS
zone)
Store an average speed monitoring area only if you are absolutely sure of
the start and finish points. When passing underneath the first ‘start’ SPECS
camera carry out the following:
1. Press STORE once to store the first camera position.
2. Press DELETE to select the location type: AVERAGE.
3. Press STORE to confirm.
4. When you are underneath the finish camera, press STORE to confirm
the finish position.
The section of average speed detection is now stored.
If you press STORE by mistake, you have the option to cancel by
pressing the MENU button.
Protecting and Cleaning
Cleaning the case
Your unit is made from tough polycarbonate moulded plastic and is
designed to withstand normal daily handling. Only clean with a dry or slightly
damp cloth. Do not use solvents or a wet cloth.
Cleaning the screen
When cleaning the LCD display, avoid pressing too hard as this may
damage the display.
General precautions
Avoid water or very damp conditions, extremes of heat (60ºC) or cold
(-10ºC) and dropping the unit. We recommend removing ROAD ANGEL
Navigator and its bracket from the dashboard if the vehicle is parked for
long periods in direct sunlight.
38
6. Updating the Database
Your ROAD ANGEL Navigator is capable of storing up to 50,000 unique
danger zones (see page 45). As soon as possible after your purchase, you
should:
•
REGISTER the unit online at www.blackspot.com (see page 7). If online
registration is not possible, please call the Registration helpline
(recorded) on: 0870 084 7439. Leave your name, address and
telephone number and we will forward a registration form to you the
same working day (Mon – Fri).
•

•
Download the latest version of the database. You cannot update your
ROAD ANGEL Navigator until your registration has been processed –
this can take up to 24 hours online. Allow 3-4 days for registrations using
the recorded form request service.
We recommend that you update your ROAD ANGEL Navigator on a regular
basis, as safety camera locations are constantly changing. With new
locations being added and old cameras being removed, we recommend a
monthly update. If you are a high mileage motorist, using unfamiliar roads,
you may want to update your database weekly. You should also update the
database before you set off on a long trip.
To update ROAD ANGEL Navigator, you will need to install the supplied
software (also available as a download from our website) on a PC with

7. Troubleshooting
ROAD ANGEL Navigator fails to power up
1. Check that the power lead is plugged into the correct port on the back of
the ROAD ANGEL Navigator cradle (see page 5).
2. Is the ROAD ANGEL Navigator's green Power LED on (see page 2)? If it
is, press the On/Off button next to the Power LED. If the Power LED is
not illuminated, check that the unit's power switch is in the On position
(see pages 4 and 10).
3. On the plug in the cigar socket, check that the LED is illuminated. If it is
not, please check that the plug is located properly and then test the
internal fuse. If this is OK, then no power is reaching the socket –
consult a qualified auto-electrician.
ROAD ANGEL Navigator lights up but does not acquire satellites
(shows satellite symbol but the five bars fail to light up - see page 13)
1. Check the position of your ROAD ANGEL Navigator in the car: it must
have a clear view of the sky to acquire GPS data.
2. Are you in a built-up area? If so, move to an area clear of tall buildings or
overhanging trees.
3. If this is the first time the unit has been switched on it may take up to 45
minutes to acquire a signal.
4. Power down the unit and reboot by pressing the Reset button on the
back (see page 3).
5. Has the vehicle got a UV screen? Place ROAD ANGEL Navigator onto
the roof of the vehicle and wait for it to acquire satellite data; once
acquired, place back into the car and see if it can hold the signal. If it
cannot then an external antenna is required. Please visit
www.blackspot.com for details. If you have a Ford Focus or Mondeo with
a Quickclear windscreen, ROAD ANGEL Navigator will work if placed on
the far right hand side of the dashboard.
41
ROAD ANGEL Navigator loses the satellite signal (the speed display is not
shown)
1. This may happen temporarily owing to tunnels, tall buildings, bridges or
dense foliage. When you are clear of the obstruction, ROAD ANGEL
Navigator should re-acquire satellite signals in a few seconds.
2. Have you moved the unit within the vehicle? Reposition ROAD ANGEL
Navigator to its original position.
3. You may be experiencing poor GPS coverage – very occasionally one or
more satellites are out of sequence and the signal temporarily drops out.
It should be restored within minutes.
No audible signal
On powering the unit, irrespective of the volume level, the unit will
sound. If you can hear this then the volume has been adjusted to
minimum.
a) Press the MENU button on the front of the unit (see page 2).
b) Tap the OPEN button and then NEXT to view the Camera alert
volume setting.
c) Tap the EDIT button to edit the value.
d) Tap ADJUST repeatedly until the display shows the required value.
e) Tap on the STORE button to save the setting. ROAD ANGEL
Navigator confirms that the setting has been stored.
f) Tap on the EXIT button.
I am not getting a warning on all fixed cameras
1. Has the unit been updated recently? Carry out an update to add all the
new locations (see page 39).
2. ROAD ANGEL Navigator has a directional feature that allows it to ignore
cameras that are enforcing the speed limit in the opposite direction.
42
I am not getting sufficient warning as I approach fixed cameras

e) Tap on the ADJUST button repeatedly until the unit shows the
required value.
f) Tap on the STORE button to save the setting. ROAD ANGEL
Navigator confirms that the setting has been saved.
g) Tap on the EXIT button.
Sometimes when I am driving I get a warning for a camera that is not there.
1. Has the unit been updated recently? The camera may have been
removed from the database.
2. ROAD ANGEL Navigator may be warning you about a camera on a
parallel road very close to the road you are travelling on. If this is the
case, the proximity bars may switch off before they go all the way to
maximum. This problem is more likely to occur if your ROAD ANGEL
Navigator is set to a long alert distance setting. Try reducing the Alert
Distance setting (see above).
ROAD ANGEL Navigator displays the message 'Please Register..' when I
power it up
Your ROAD ANGEL Navigator has not been updated. You need to
register (see page 7) and update your ROAD ANGEL Navigator (see
page 39).
ROAD ANGEL Navigator flashes the message 'Alert Data Out Of Date'
ROAD ANGEL Navigator has not been updated for 30 days. You need
to update ROAD ANGEL Navigator as soon as possible (see page 39).

8. Background Information
About Global Positioning Satellites (GPS)
Operational since 1990, 24 satellites orbit the earth at a height of 11,000
miles. At any given point on the globe, at least 4 satellites are in view at any
one time. Using sophisticated aerials and triangulation techniques, units
such as ROAD ANGEL Navigator are able to compute your position to
within 5-10 metres.
Occasionally, when roads are close together, ROAD ANGEL Navigator may
place you on the wrong road. If this happens, keep driving and ROAD
ANGEL Navigator will automatically correct itself when it has a better fix or
when the road network simplifies.
ROAD ANGEL Navigator may lose the GPS satellite signal temporarily
owing to tunnels, tall buildings, bridges, dense foliage or adverse weather
conditions. When you are clear of the obstruction, ROAD ANGEL Navigator
should re-acquire satellite signals in a few seconds.
GPS Status
To view GPS information, tap on
screen is displayed:
44
and select GPS Status. The following
ROAD ANGEL Navigator's Database
ROAD ANGEL Navigator uses a database of Police, Local Authority and
Ministry of Transport designated danger spots, including accident black
spots and safety camera locations, primary schools and congestion
charging zones. Your ROAD ANGEL Navigator can store up to 50,000
unique danger locations. Using the latest Global Positioning Satellite (GPS)
technology, ROAD ANGEL Navigator compares your position with known
danger spot locations and gives you an audible and visual warning as you
approach them.
It is critical to the accurate operation of your ROAD ANGEL Navigator that
you update your unit regularly to maintain the very latest data. With up to
100 new hazard locations added each month, we suggest that you update
your ROAD ANGEL Navigator monthly (see Updating the Database on
page 39). If you are a high mileage driver, using unfamiliar roads, we
recommend weekly updates.
To qualify for database updates:
1. Register your ROAD ANGEL Navigator with Blackspot Interactive
Ltd. You cannot update the database until you have registered (see
page 7).
2. Purchase a valid subscription package (see page 8). Your new
ROAD ANGEL Navigator comes with an initial, free, 6-month
subscription
Using ROAD ANGEL Navigator Abroad
Your ROAD ANGEL Navigator is specifically designed for use within its
designated country, as stated on the packaging. It will have limited
functionality in other countries because the appropriate map and
camera/safety GPS data will not be present.
If you intend to use ROAD ANGEL Navigator abroad, seek independent
legal advice prior to departure.

Speed Cameras and Blackspots
This section describes the type of cameras and road hazards covered by
ROAD ANGEL Navigator:
Gatso
The most common type of speed camera –
used in fixed positions mounted on poles at
the roadside. Measures vehicle speed using
radar and, if the speed limit has been
exceeded, photographs the rear of the
vehicle. Uses a flash unit inside the camera
cabinet or mounted on a gantry to illuminate
the offending vehicle's rear number plate.
ROAD ANGEL Navigator relies on up-todate database information for detection.
TruVelo
Measures vehicle speed using sensor strips
in the road and photographs the front of a
speeding vehicle, along with the driver. Uses
an infra-red flash. ROAD ANGEL Navigator
relies on up-to-date database information for
detection.
SPECS
Takes a digital photograph of your vehicle at
the ‘start’ point and then another a set
distance further down the road. If your
average speed is greater than the speed
limit between these two cameras you are
automatically prosecuted. ROAD ANGEL
Navigator relies on up-to-date database
information for detection.
46
Watchman
Measures vehicle speed and, if the speed
limit has been exceeded, takes a
photograph of the front of the vehicle,
including the driver. Can be accessed
remotely allowing operators to download live
video, stored images or data. ROAD ANGEL
Navigator relies on up-to-date database
information for detection.
Speedcurb
Measures the speed of vehicles in the
monitored section of road using pressure
sensors in the road surface. If the speed
limit has been exceeded, it takes a
photograph of the rear of the vehicle. Uses a
flash module for night-time operation. ROAD
ANGEL Navigator relies on up-to-date
database information for detection.
Traffiphot
Uses pressure sensors in the road (similar
to Speedmaster – see below) to measure
vehicle speed and photographs the rear of
any speeding vehicle. Not to be confused
with red-light cameras. ROAD ANGEL
Navigator relies on up-to-date database
information for detection.
Speedmaster
Semi-permanent (fixed location but only
used part-time), system that uses pressure
sensors in the road to measure vehicle
speed. Connects to a camera on a tripod for
evidence of any offence. ROAD ANGEL
Navigator relies on up-to-date database
information for detection.
47
Black spot
A specific location, identified by the police
and local authorities, where a high number
of accidents have occurred e.g. a difficult
junction. Black spots are often targeted by
mobile speed enforcement units. ROAD
ANGEL Navigator relies on up-to-date
database information to identify black spots.
Congestion
Drivers must pay in advance or on the day
of travel to enter the designated zone during
the scheme’s hours of operation. There are
substantial penalties if you do not pay the
congestion charge.
Primary Schools
You can set up ROAD ANGEL Navigator to
alert you whenever you are within 250
metres of a primary school.
