Traffic congestion warning systems
There's a thread going about sat-nav systems. I have an RAC 1210 traffic alert, which is a little device which velcros to your windscreen and has a system of warning lights (N,S,E,W) which on approach to a motorway will warn of jams within about 3 junctions of where you are. It is no longer sold (but still works). It has proved invaluable over the years. It wasn't very expensive, under �100 I think. What is the modern day equivalent. Without spending a huge sum, what is available now for warning of congestion ?

The Rac Traffic Alert (TA)1210 was brilliant for what it did - it also covered all major roads and interesections - not just M ways. It once saved me a long wait on the M5 when motorway closed for Air Ambulance access. The TA1210 showed the Mway blocked 3 junctions ahead so I was able to leave the M5 and drive up the A38 till the TA1210 showed roads ahead 'all clear'. I have now had to trash my old trusty 1210 and have been searching the net for alternative - but can only see very expensive sat nav systems. The TA1210 was originally about �30 via the RAC. Any suitable suggestions for replacements gratefully received.
