    I've had an RAC traffic alert 1210 for the past 10 years and yes it still works.
    I have it on the top right hand side of my windscreen. In summer whenit gets hot, battery drain is a problem, but otherwise it works well. It works by picking up the signals generated by the info systems on the A roads and motorways. You know, the things on bridges and gantrys and on side of the road that look like camaras but not.
    It a poor mans version of a GPRS that's found in most sat navs.
    It is a basic unit that does it's job. nothing fancy.
    If you have a sat-nav, you will not need one of these as you can adapt your sat-nav into a traffic master. Most sat-nav units allows for this as an extra.

    My one seems to have stopped working a few months ago. It still beeps when the batteries are inserted but no longer responds to the roadside transmitters. Has the system changed or has my unit just failed?
    Thanks Michael
