Oi gente. Descuple, mas meu Pourtuguese e lixo e eu nao posso falar "intelligente" se eu precisos falar em anglais ... I hope some of you can can understand me and respond in English (sorry again :( )

I am curious to see what Brazilians are generally using to fight laser/radar and speed cameras. It is my understanding that radar detectors (Bel, Escort, Valentine 1) are illegal in Brazil but do people still use them? Do the police (federal and military) regularly look for vehicles with radar detectors (RD)? Do the police use radar detector detectors (RDD) to seek out people using RDs? Do the police give out big fines for people using RDs?

Secondly, I know Brazil loves speed cameras! Probably as a way to generate revenue like most places but I see them everywhere. I visit Brazil once a year and usually travel from Sao Paulo to Tupa to Guaraja and back to Tupa. What legal devices to Brazilians use to protect them from speed cameras ... Waze? Cheetah C50 with Trinity subscription? RDs with GPS and Defender subscription? Escort Live? Or, is there a community that manages a Points-of-Interests (POI) database for Garmin and TomTom GPS devices?

It looks like MapaRadar.com is a pretty big community so any information would be much appreciated. My next trip to Brazil is in December so I want to ready myself before I go.

Obrigado!

Such devices are useless in Brazil. The speedometers here are not laser based but mechanical trigered by sensors digged into the ground. Antiradar as well any other defensive gadget are prohibited anyhow.

What we do is recording the sensors coordinates and build a database for a GPS use, then when you approach to a speed camera the Gps warns you about the limit and the position so you can still safe. It's very looked alike a POI data base.

I'm proud to tell you Maparadar is the best, larger and precise radar data base in Brazil. We offer for free data to almost every existing GPS or software.
Our cordinates are revised by a very experienced military jet pilot (a Retired Colonel) .
Fell free to contact us as you need. I personally wil be pleased in helping you here.

Consider visit Rio de Janeiro, I bet you will appreciate much more than Sao Paulo.Believe me!

By the way our drivers are Kamikazes then, so many cameras are to protect every one of us and why not make any money ti the goverment?.

Thanks for the response J!

I have a Garmin Nuvi but rarely use the device. I might consider downloading your POIs but I would still have to buy the Brazil maps at about $100. I am not sure if I want to go this route.

I am considering in buying a Cheetah C50 which is a dedicated redlight/speed camera alerting device. Google them to find more information. I talked to their customer service this week and they plan to launch their South American database in another 6-12 months. The device costs $150 and a lifetime of data sets are available for $50 which includes all regions and countries!

Redlight/speed cameras are big business in Western Canada and many American states. Ask my wife, a Brazilian, who gets nailed by them all the time! I think the Cheetah C50 would be ideal but might not be ready for December 2013.

I still was curious about Waze in Brazil. Do people use it? It's picking up steam hear in North America and am curious if it has found a following in Brasil.

Thanks again for your response and help J!

Forget about this. Our market is already defined an consolidated. It's too late for them unless they get our data base as a start rather than developing their own.

You DON"T have to pay for Brazilian maps. We have a group named Tracksource developing Garmin maps for free.

www.gpsinfo.com.br is a place where you can dowload the best stuff for Gamin.

The projeto Tracksource maps are daily basis updated and
regularly releases new maps free of charge.

Want to be happy? Bring your Garmin whith Tracksource maps and speedcamera downloaded from Gpsinfo.

Did you copy the text from above message?

It´s what we exactly do at.

http://www.maparadar.com

We offer this database free of charge for every GPS system available.

For Gps shield fixed running Igo, Garmin and others We have the best data available.

One year ago we did´nt ever head about Waze yet. Now it´s here and popular! It´s for mobile phone devices.

Great stuff but low confidence on it´s data, moreover it can record outlaw warnings!

We do not supply for Waze. Anyone can set anything at Waze! We can´t trust on Waze warnings.

Take a look at our site and post you comment!

Thanks.
