How does AURA database work?
How often can I update the AURA database on my device?
Snooper are constantly updating the AURA speed trap database with new speed camera locations and changes to speed limits. So you could in theory update it everyday to be drving with the latest speed camera locations, though once a week is often enough.

Q. My Snooper used to alert to cameras on either side of the road (using the Logic modes) and now alerts to camera on both sides of the road, why is this?
A. Performance Products Ltd manufacturer of the Snooper range, have confirmed that following a firmware update ALL devices will no longer provide directional alerts, but will now alert to cameras sited on both sides of the road.
This change is a result of customer feedback (see below) and a new EU ruling regarding alerts to speed camera locations in mainland Europe - particularly for France. Snooper devices don't just cover UK cameras, but countries throughout Europe and many countries around the world.
Customer comment: “Missed a camera on the other side of the road”
Snooper's Action: Simplified alert to cameras on both carriageways.
