Snooper DVR 4HD G3 is both a dash cam and a speed camera detector all-in-one device and is the third generation of the Snooper DVR-4HD dash cam. The Snooper 4HD G3 has a 3-inch TFT LCD screen to instantly view recorded video, full HD recording @ 30fps (frames per second), with a 152° viewing angle and features WiFi technology.

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 recording when an impact is detected the DVR-4HD G3 will record and save 15 seconds before and 15 seconds after the incident detected. There is a 32GB microSD card included in the box and you can upgrade the SD card to a maximum of 32GB microSD card. There is a 2 megapixel sony sensor providing camera and video which can be recorded in the following resolution:

Protect your no claims bonus with the Snooper DVR-4HD G3. There are many cases of false insurance claims whereby people carry out scams to claim on their insurance. The DVR-4HD G3 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 152 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.

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 G3 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 G3 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 G3 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 subscription 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 G3 with clear video imagery in all light conditions.

There are a number of driver-safety features on the DVR-4HD G3 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.

Installing the Snooper DVR 4HD G3

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 G3 features a built-in battery, this is designed for Motion Detection mode ) 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.
