sat nav with cycle maps and road maps?

Hi I'm after a sat nav for car use and cycling.

For the car use it must have speed camera warnings (with update capabilities) - traffic warnings if pos.

Now on the cycling mode it must have cycling mapping or off road mapping. A lot of sat navs have both car mode and cycle mode but don't have adequate off road mapping which is frustrating!

If there is a good car sat nav with cycle lanes as well then this would be perfect! But i would settle for off road mapping if not

Does anyone know of such a device?

Thanks in Advance
Andy

Also check out Windows Mobile PDAs, they can run MemoryMap mapping. I run an oldish Mio P550 running Tom Tom 6, OS 1:250k, 1:50k, 1:25k and A/Z of South Yorks... but I'm a map junkie.

Also check out Anquete mapping click here I thought their software was slower than MemoryMap 5 years ago, but it must have improved by now. They both do free trial to make your own mind up.

This could be the dual road/cycle product that you want click here rather than a walking/biking only device like this one click here.

The advantage of the PC based MemoryMap/Anquete mapping that download maps to your portable device, is that you can also print off the area you want to use, draw on it, make notes etc and then just chuck it when it's too scruffy to use anymore. I'm not sure if the Road Angel gives you that function.

Have you checked out click here they know everything about GPS systems and devices. And have good reviews of all the products available.
