a little off topic, but I wish I knew this a few months ago...
Nokia Speed Trap Detector
The settings for radar speed traps detector. Your Nokia cell phone can be programmed to pick up radar speed traps, when programmed your cell phone picks up the radar and alerts you on the message alert tone. ( Doesn't work with Nokia 7110! )
1. Enter your menu
2. Select settings
3. Select security settings
4. Select closed user group
5. Select on
6. Enter 00000
7. Press ok
8. Clear back to normal, within a few seconds your phone will display a radar sign with five zero's next to it. It is now activated.
Unfortunately only Nokia phones have this function. Cell info display needs to be de-activated. Settings -> Phone Settings -> Cell Info display Each time you turn off your phone, or even each time you loose contact with your carrier, you'll have to activate it again... It is done by steps 1 through 5, but the number (00000) will be already on the field as default.

Is it both X band and K band? How about laser then?
Sounds like an urban legend.
IMO of course.

A wealthy Nokia executive, Anssa Vanjoki, has the record for the most expensive speeding fine ever (Over $100,000 due to the means tested fine system employed in Finland). Either this Nokia speed detector doesn't work very well, or it was produced as a direct result of this fine when a pissed off Mr Vanjoki ordered his minions to develop such a feature, or as Geo says its an urban legend, probably dreamt up by someone in response to the massive fine that Mr Vanjoki received.

OK - set the phone up as above. The graphic display represents a cluster of three interconnected nodes followed by five zeroes. Good, so far.
Drove towards the only fixed speed camera in the Suffolk coastal area and bugger me if a strange whining sound didn't start when about 250 metres from the camera installation. Sounded like a distant aircraft turbine which faded away about fifty metres past the camera, but there was no doppler effect so we weren't moving quickly in relation to the source. My passenger heard it very clearly as well but couldn't locate any directional source, within the cabin or from the outside.
I made other passes, in each direction, but we heard nothing further. Was it environmental noise we heard on the first pass? It wasn't agricultural machinery. There's no airfield within ten miles of the speed camera. It's all somewhat puzzling.
All done in the interests of science, of course.

I think your wheel bearings gone

Maybe I did lose my bearings....or was it alien abduction?
I think we should be told.
