What's the best product for speed camera detection?

Are speed camera detectors legal. If so, what's the best product to buy?

They are legal in the UK - but they're quite expensive and they aren't foolproof. You could try an app for your phone, several are available and affordable, and will show fixed camera locations and common van locations. But the best thing you can do is pay attention and drive legally. If you do opt to pick up a dedicated camera detector the Cheetah C550 is highly rated, but it costs £160 plus a subscription for updates.
