Snooper Speed Camera Detectors

With more than 35 years experience in the in-car technology market Snooper first made their name in radar and laser speed camera detectors which simply detected road side speed cameras such as the infamous Gatso camera.

As technology developed, both in catching speeding motorists and the in-car technology designed to alert motorist to their presence. Snooper then started to utilise the US military's Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network. These device use a database named AURA which includes fixed and mobile speed camera locations along with road speed limits. Being more advanced, GPS locators alert you to speed cameras at a pre-set distance before each camera location. These locations in the database are both fixed and known mobile speed cameras or accident hotspots.

Using a GPS database has meant that speed cameras such as Truvelo and SPECS averaging cameras, which are undetectable to a conventional radar and laser detector are now fully alertable to the motorist using one of their GPS speed camera detector.

Today and true their roots, Snooper still offer an detector which uses all three technologies namely radar, laser and GPS in the Snooper 4ZERO model.


Snooper Satellite Navigation

Following on from the Snooper's successful GPS speed camera detector range and with the growing popularity of satellite navigation Snooper then launched a range of in-car sat navs.

Early models included the Indago and Syrius and naturally these navigators also included Snoopers award winning AURA speed camera database to provide motorists with speed camera locations along their route.

Truck specific sat navs

Some years later in 2007 Snooper then started developing truck and HGV specific sat navs. These niche market sat navs used the same mapping as on earlier models, but also encompassed a database of road heights and width restrictions.

When using one of Snooper's truck sat navs named Truckmate the user e.g. truck driver or haulage manager can first input the lorries height, width, length, load type, etc. Once this data is known by the Truckmate sat nav safe routes for that specific vehicle can then be calculated.

Snooper's latest truck sat navs include the S6800 Pro which includes an impressively large 7-inch screen and with added features of a digital Freeview TV. Enabling you to watch TV when on an overnight stop or waiting for on/off loading.

Motorhome and caravan specific sat navs

Using the same road data information, Snooper have since launched a range of sat navs named Ventura which are designed specifically for drivers of motorhomes and those towing caravans.

These sat navs are also pre-programmed with a rich database of camp and camper sites. To view the latest motorhome sat nav range click here.
