The Packard Bell Compasseo 600 GPS device uses NAVTEQ maps to guide drivers to their destinations. The Compasseo, released in 2007 for a European market, also has the ability to show drivers upcoming speedcams. Speedcams, or speed cameras, are often placed on or near stoplights to capture the number plate number of a driver who is travelling past the speed limit. With the camera detection feature on the Compasseo, drivers can slow down before reaching the camera. Users can purchase updates for the camera database, and then download and install those updates on the GPS.
