Can you recommend a satnav with speed limit indication?

Do you know of a Satnav (UK and Europe) with integral speed limit indication and speed camera warning or a Satnav with integral 'Road Angel Gem' facilities, please?

The TomTom in my car has these features, but it's illegal to drive through France with a satnav that warns of speed camera locations. Also the speed limit warning can never cover temporary speed limits, or speed limits that have recently been lowered. For that you need a camera system that recognises speed limit signs, as in new Fords, Mazdas and Vauxhalls, and that is not illegal, of course.
