Snooper 3ZERO speed camera detector includes not one, not two, but three different types of techonology for detection to provide advanced warnings to the UK's speed cameras. The Snooper 3ZERO includes GPS, Radar and Laser detection, the ONLY standalone system we sell to include all three!

The three technologies included in the Snooper 3ZERO are:

GPS database - features fixed and mobile cameras, some fixed cameras like Truvelo and SPECS are undectable via a radar or laser detector - this is when your really need a database!
Radar detector - detects mobile 'in use' radar based guns and all live Gatso cameras.
Laser detector - detects mobile 'in use' laser based gun. These are the more commonly used mobile cameras that are used by the Police and Safety Camera Partnerships.

Released in 2009 to celebrate Snooper's 30th anniversary, the 3ZERO has become one of our best selling speed camera detectors as it is the ONLY standalone system we sell that includes all three technologies!

GPS database alerts

When you are within the selected range (100-1000metres) of the location of a speed camera via the GPS database, the Snooper 3ZERO's green on black dot matrix screen advises you of the type of camera you're approaching i.e. 'Gatso', confirms the speed limit and then counts you down in increments of 50metres to the exact location. This is indicated by both the 3ZERO's screen and also via spoken voice alerts, allowing you to hear the information without the need to take your eyes off the road.

HADECS 3 speed camera locations are now within the Snooper AURA speed camera database. These locations are identified as a 'Gatso' speed camera location.

Pre-Alert and Auto-Range Settings

The Snooper 3ZERO features a pre-alert setting which enables you to adjust the distance that the 3 Zero will alert from to a fixed speed camera when utilising GPS. You can set your own personal pre-alert distance in 50 metre increments from 100 metres to a maximum of 1000 metres or alternatively you can select the 'Auto-Range'.

Auto-range simply selects the correct alert distance to each camera detected depending on the speed limit of the road the camera is situated on. The different alert distances are shown below:

Speed Limit

Pre-Alert Distance


250 metres


300 metres


350 metres


700 metres


700 metres


700 metres


Radar and Laser alerts

When you are within the range (up to 1 mile) of a live 'in use' radar or laser based system, the 3ZERO's screen confirms what is being detected i.e. 'K' band for a radar based system, the unit then also sounds an intermittent beep.

Snooper 3ZERO Questions and Answers

Question: I purchased a usb lead from you for my Snooper 3zero. However when I tried connecting it to my device it didn't work. Can you give me a returns reference please so I can return it?

Answer: We are assuming that you are advising that it is the cable that did not work, rather than the 3Zero?

As you can see, the mini USB cable is Snooper branded. This was from new stock recently received from Performance Products in Runcorn (Snooper manufacturer). It should therefore be guaranteed to be compatible with the Snooper 3Zero. In 12+ years of trading we have never known a Snooper USB cable to be faulty.

We presume that you would probably still wish to update your 3Zero? Snooper advise that you must connect the cable to a USB 2 port on your PC. This port is coloured 'black'. A USB 3 port, coloured Blue, will not connect. No Snooper product is Apple MAC compatible, so you must connect to a Windows PC. If you connect to a MAC the cable will not work with the 3Zero.

A subscription is required for the 3Zero. If your subscription has expired that may explain why the cable failed to download any data.

Snooper 3ZERO manual

Please note: Page 20 of the PDF manual refers to three different Logic Modes. Logic Modes are NO longer available following a firmware update on the 3ZERO. Read more about the change here.

Manual requires Adobe Acrobat Reader

This product is a sophisticated electronic device which requires that you read, understand, and act upon the information given in the instruction manual (usually available via the above 'manual' link). You will need internet access and, in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations, regularly seek out and accept all firmware or software updates offered by the manufacturer. All GPS devices need to ‘see’ the satellites in the sky. Therefore you will need to know that your vehicle does not have glass that will block or impede the GPS signal.

Updates to this product are via the internet. At this product page we state compatibility with specific versions of current internet connection devices, for example: PC, laptop, MAC, smartphone etc. The Consumer Contract Regulations allow you 14 days, from receipt of purchase, to check compatibility with your internet connection device/s. If you choose to replace or update your PC, MAC etc. neither we nor the manufacturer will be responsible if the new/replacement Operating System (OS) is not compatible with the purchased product.

The same advice about vehicle glass applies to radar and laser signals.
