Drivesmart Alpha X Speed Camera Detector


The DriveSmart Alpha X GPS Speed Camera Detector is here.  Following on from the hugely successful original Drivesmart Alpha, the Alpha X brings all the same much-loved features, then adds more.  Better display and increased radar filtering makes this one of the best Drivesmart units yet.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


Following on from the outstanding success of the DriveSmart Alpha, the all new Alpha X has been added to the Drivesmart family.  Utilising all the best bits from the original Alpha,  the Alpha X also offers a clearer, crisper OLED blue-tone display, increased Anti-Radar Filtering (for reduced false alerts) as well as new features to cope with the ever-changing safety sensors on other vehicles.

The unique ‘Smart Radar’ filter from the original Alpha still remains, but with more customisation now available for certain radar activity means the detector can be set to only become active within range of a speed camera location. If this is a radar based speed camera it will then confirm if the camera is active. This is an industry first and removes the false alerts experienced by so many competitors from automatic door sensors and pedestrian crossings etc.

This live detection has been paired with arguably the best mobile camera database in the business, which combines to give you an extensive UK database of Mobile Laser / Safety Camera Van locations UK wide as well as all Fixed Speed Cameras including Gatso / Truvelo / HADECS / Monitron / SPECS average speed cameras and Red Light traffic camera locations.

UK Legal, the DriveSmart Alpha X works straight out of the box and there are no on-going subscriptions for database updates which are provided FREE OF CHARGE.


Features Include:
  • GPS / RADAR / LASER gives total protection of all speed cameras + live Radar camera alerts
  • SMART RADAR – UK’s first system for 100% no false K band radar alerts. A first in the UK market.
  • RADAR ANTI-INTERFERENCE – Decreases alerts from assisted braking / lane drift sensors used on some modern vehicles.

  • No more annoying shop doors / pedestrian crossings and other false Radar alerts that all the other systems suffer from (Switchable if you want to get all Radar alerts)
  • Laser Elite laser detection system for live laser detection alerts (ON/OFF selectable) detects all the latest UK laser guns including LTI-Trucam/Tru speed Euro/Unipar SL700
  • Alerts to all fixed speed cameras both radar and digital including Gatso / Truvelo / HADECS / Monitron / SPECS average speed cameras and also Red Light traffic camera locations (optional).
  • Alerts to mobile laser and safety camera van high risk locations. The Alpha also has laser detection for a physical backup.
  • Voice and visual warnings of speed camera locations including voice alert of the speed limit. Also optional overspeed alerts. Adjustable warning distance to camera locations, adjustable volume and brightness settings.
  • Anti-glare OLED display to minimise reflections in the windscreen and improve display visibility in bright sunlight
