Released in 2017, the Snooper 4ZERO Elite speed camera detector features just like its predecessor - the Snooper 4ZERO, features GPS alerts to fixed and mobile speed camera locations and a built-in radar and laser detector.

However, the all new Snooper 4ZERO Elite has the following additional features, one of which is a first for Snooper!*

Auto-ranging - when selected the 4zero elite will automatically provide alerts from a pre-set distance to the speed camera location - the greater the roads speed limit e.g. 60mph, the greater the distance of the warning provided by the 4ZERO Elite.

Directional alerts - when selected the 4zero elite will only provide alerts to speed cameras positioned to target your vehicle. Speed cameras targets vehicles travelling in the opposite direction will be ignored.

FREE speed camera updates - the 4 zero elite includes free lifetime speed cameras. This means there are no on-going speed camera subscription charges to pay.

*PC and MAC compatibility - the 4 zero elite is the first Snooper device and is the only speed camera detector we sell to be compatible with Apple operating system. Like all previous Snooper GPS speed trap locators the 4ZERO Elite is also Windows compatible.

Snooper 4ZERO Elite encompasses three technologies these are:

GPS database - features fixed and mobile cameras, some fixed cameras like HADECS and VECTOR are undetectable via a radar or laser detector - this is when your really need a database of speed camera locations.

Radar detector - detects mobile 'in use' radar based guns and all live Gatso speed cameras.

Laser detector - detects mobile 'in use' laser based guns and police handhelds. These are the more commonly used mobile safety cameras that are used by the Police and Safety Camera Partnerships.

GPS database alerts

As you approach a fixed speed camera location the Snooper 4ZERO Elite device will beep three times and emit a voice alert confirming the road speed limit where the speed camera is located. At the same time the OLED display will visually confirm the alert and display your vehicles current speed. The advantage of the beeps and voice alerts is you never need to take your eyes off of the road to be alerted to each speed camera.

In addition, the Snooper 4ZERO Elite features 'directional alerts' meaning you will only be alerted to fixed speed cameras on your side of the road and in your direction of travel.

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite has a 'speed limit' feature whereby you can set a speed limit and if you accidentally stray above this speed you will be alerted. The Snooper 4ZERO Elite also has a volume dial that can be adjusted to alter the volume of the alerts to speed cameras you receive. There is also a mute button.

The screen on the 4ZERO (pictured below) is OLED which will display your vehicles speed, GPS signal strength, electronic compass, current time and whether City Mode is on or off.

As you approach a mobile speed camera location the Snooper 4ZERO Elite will confirm the frequency type (X, K, Ka). In addition to voice alerts, you will also hear audible beeps.

The 4ZERO Elite uses front-facing radar and laser detection. The detection range on this snooper speed camera detector has been increased and is now more sensitive than previous speed camera detectors. The result is that you will receive advanced pre-warning providing you with more time to react to alerts given by the Snooper 4ZERO Elite.

Furthermore, Snooper have added a rear facing laser detector to the Snooper 4ZERO Elite so you will know if the Police are targeting your vehicle from behind too. There is also a City Mode which can be switched on the reduce the number of false alerts from shop doorway sensors, shop and house alarms and such like when using the radar and laser detectors. There is also a Motorway mode whereby alert volumes for detection can be predetermined.

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 4ZERO Elite'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 4ZERO Elite will provide advance warning of the following mobile laser and radar speed traps:

‣LTI - Marksman 20.20

Snooper AURA speed camera database

The Snooper 4ZERO, like all Snooper speed camera detectors, gets the GPS speed camera data from the Snooper AURA speed camera database - subscription fees and connection to your Windows based PC apply. The database provides advanced warnings to known fixed and mobile speed camera locations across the UK, Europe and in a growing number of other countries across the world.

The Snooper AURA database is constantly updated with the latest locations - but you must regularly connect to an internet enabled Windows or Apple Mac PC to download the latest update. More information about the free speed camera updates can be found here or by scrolling down to 'Speed Camera updates (FREE)' further down this webpage.

Auto-Range Settings

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite features auto-ranging. When this feature is selected within the units menu, the 4 zero elite will alert you to approaching fixed and mobile speed camera lcoations within the GPS database from a predetermined distance. The different alert distances are shown below:

Snooper 4ZERO Elite Questions and Answers

Question: Does the Snooper 4 zero elite detect all speed camera types in existence in the UK today? Does it come with the most up to date camera locations / types ? Also can I hard wire it into one car but use it in my other car with the cigarette lighter plug point?

Answer: The Snooper 4Zero Elite is the most comprehensive speed camera detector we stock and sell.

The Snooper 4Zero Elite is the only speed camera detector that we sell to feature both radar and laser detection, in addition to a GPS database of speed camera locations, known as the Snooper AURA database.

Does the Snooper 4 zero elite detect all speed camera types in existence in the UK today?

There are now several speed camera types found on UK roads that do not use radar or laser technologies, e.g. SPECS average speed cameras. Therefore some camera types are completely undetectable when relying upon a radar/laser detector. For these you will need to rely on the Snooper AURA database to show the known GPS location of the camera. If it is a new location then it may not be in the database immediately.

Does it come with the most up to date camera locations / types?

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite does not come preloaded with the Snooper AURA database. Upon receipt you will need to register the unit with the manufacturer, before downloading the latest Snooper AURA database of speed camera locations into the 4ZERO Elite via either a Windows or MAC PC. The latest speed camera types e.g. HADECS are included in the Snooper AURA database. The Snooper 4ZERO Elite radar and laser detector will both work straight out of the box - no activation required.

Also can I hard wire it into one car but use it in my other car with the cigarette lighter plug point

When buying the Snooper 4ZERO Elite from ActiveGPS included in the box are two vehicle power cables:

1. Plug in cigarette lighter socket
2. Hardwire power cable

So both the cables you require are included when the Snooper 4ZERO Elite is purchased from ActiveGPS.

Question: Can the Snooper 4ZERO Elite be also installed on a motorcycle? In other words, can it be used for both car and motorcycle? If so, does the device come with a protective waterproof casing?

Answer: The Snooper 4ZERO Elite is designed for use in cars, vans, etc only. It is not waterproof and it does not have a headphone socket for audible alerts. We understand that some customers have used the Snooper 4ZERO Elite within a tank bag on a motorbike.

Question: Can one use snooper 4 zero elite in countries not mentioned on the list?

Answer: The Snooper 4ZERO Elite incorporates THREE different technologies, these are:

1. GPS
2. Radar detection
3. Laser detection

The countries listed are ones that appear within the GPS speed camera database.

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite built-in radar and laser detector may well work in countries not included in the GPS database and detect radar and mobile based cameras. However, the 4ZERO Elite’s radar and laser detector has been optimised to detect radar and laser beams in the UK/Europe. We therefore cannot comment upon how effective the 4ZERO Elite radar/laser detector is outside of Europe.

Question: I am looking to buy the Snooper 4ZERO Elite from you, although my decision will be based around the cost of subscription. This unit appears to say that camera updates are free though in the manual it says there is a minimum 12 month subscription. Can you clarify the subscription cost for all the speed camera detectors?

Answer: You are correct that the Snooper 4ZERO Elite manual refers to an on-going subscription charge.

However, I can confirm that the Snooper 4ZERO Elite when purchased from ActiveGPS.co.uk comes with a free lifetime speed camera subscription to the Snooper AURA speed camera database, a saving of £29.99 per year.

Question: How does the Snooper 4ZERO Elite deal with average speed cameras? My old Pogo would display actual speed and average speed simultaneously between cameras.

Answer: On approach to an average speed camera the Snooper 4ZERO Elite will beep three times and emit a voice alert confirming the road speed limit where the speed camera is located. At the same time the OLED display will visually confirm the alert and display your vehicles current speed.

Whilst driving through the average speed check zone there are no further alerts or on-screen information.

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.

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