Snooper DVR 4HD is both a dash cam and a speed camera detector all-in-one device. The Snooper 4HD has a 2.7-inch LCD touchscreen to instantly view video recorded. Furthermore the DVR 4HD has built-in WiFi Connectivity that enables you to connect you Android or Apple smartphone to download recorded video instantly for playback on your mobile phone. The required Drive Cam Connect app can be installed to allows you to share footage directly through your smartphone.

Recording is made with loop recording mode. This continuous recording mode overwrites old video as the SD card becomes full. There is also an emergency recording mode that is triggered by the built-in G-Sensor. For example, when an impact is detected the dashboard camera will automatically start recording. If you are already recoding when an impact is detected the DVR-4HD will record and save 15 seconds before and 15 seconds after the incident detected. Furthermore there is a parked mode that records using motion to start recording when you vehicle is parked. There is a 16GB microSD card included in the box and you can upgrade the SD card to a maximum of 32GB microSD card. There is a 3 megapixel camera and video can be recorded in two different resolutions:

1. 1920 x 1080p (Full HD) - this recording mode provides the best quality for recordings
2. 1280 x 720p (HD) - this recording mode allows you to store more video at a lower quality

Protect your no claims bonus with the Snooper DVR-4HD. There are many cases of false insurance claims whereby people carry out scams to claim on their insurance. The DVR-4HD will provide evidence as to who was at fault leading up to and during an incident or accident.

There is a wide viewing angle of 140 degrees for recording on the Snooper dashboard camera. Plus the windscreen mount rotates 360 degrees so that you can adjust the mount to record any view of the road that you choose.

The Snooper DVR-4HD features a built-in battery which is designed to be used when your vehicle is parked (and Motion Detection mode is selected in the devices menu) and the device is turned off. When motion is detected, the DVR-4HD will record for up to 30 minutes. The device sleeps when motion is not detected. The battery life is only 30 minutes so it is not suitable for powering the device for continuous recording mode.

GPS location data is saved to the Snooper dash cam so you can view your route as an overlay on Google Maps.

FREE speed camera alerts

The Snooper DVR-4HD includes a built-in speed camera detector that will warn you via GPS to "fixed" and "mobile" speed camera locations via the Snooper AURA database. When in speed camera mode the DVR 4HD will display your vehicles speed and when you approach a speed camera location the screen will change to tell you which type of camera is in the road ahead. The unit will also beep when approaching speed cameras. The speed camera alerts can be turned off. You can also set a speed limit alert whereby when you drive over a pre-set speed you receive a warning. The Snooper DVR-4HD comes with FREE subscription to Snooper's award winning AURA speed camera database, with four updates per year (once a quarter).

The Snooper DVR-4HD is primarily a dash camera recording device. Although it will also warn of known speed camera locations please be aware that this is a secondary function and that you can only update the camera database 4 times each year. There is no laser detector and there is no radar detector. The Snooper AURA database does not include red light camera locations. The database is free but there could be many location changes in the three months that you cannot update it. If you are concerned about speed camera locations then we would recommend purchasing a standalone speed camera detector which can be updated daily or one which updates automatically via the mobile phone network. Some detectors also included radar and/or laser detection.

Night and day recording is possible with the Snooper DVR-4HD with clear video imagery in all light conditions.

There are a number of driver-safety features on the DVR-4HD including forward-facing collision and lane departure warnings and driver fatigue alerts. Fatigue alerts will advise you to take a break when making a long journey.

The Snooper dash cam has a built-in microphone to record sound in the vehicle which can optionally be switched off.

Time and date stamp will be store with all videos recorded. This feature can optionally be turned off.

The Snooper DVR-4HD can be set to turn on and start recording automatically when you turn on your vehicles ignition.

Installing the Snooper DVR 4HD

Installing the DVR 4HD device on the included windscreen mount near the rear-view mirror achieves the best performance. The car power adaptor cable can then be trailed around the top of the car windshield and down the side of the car to the cigarette lighter socket. Whilst the DVR-4HD features a built-in battery, this is designed for Motion Detection mode (please see page 25 of the user manual for more details) when the vehicle is parked. The battery life is only 30 minutes so it is not suitable for powering the device for continuous recording mode.

Speed Camera Database

The Snooper DVR-4HD comes with FREE subscription to Snooper's award winning AURA speed camera database, with four updates per year (once a quarter) and covers speed camera locations in the following countries:

United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Poland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, Italy.

Please note: *Due to the vast amount of speed camera data with the AURA database, the DVR-4HD will not accommodate the complete worldwide AURA speed camera database. Therefore you will need to select which countries you actually need to download e.g. if you are only going to use in the UK, there is no point in downloading/updating the rest of Europe.

IMPORTANT: It is fully legal to use, own and operate a speed camera detector in the UK. However, before using the Snooper DVR-4HD outside of the United Kingdom we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you check to ensure that the use of a speed camera detector in other countries is also legal.
