Auto Express - July 2008

We loved the look of the sleek, piano black Sapphire, with its smart colour screen and easy-to-access options list. As it has an on-board battery, it could also be used on two wheels, or in-car without a power lead. It has useful voice warnings/speed limits and clear information on-screen to back it up. And while we caught it out on a tricky reversible camera, it wasspot-on otherwise. Low Halfords price gives it an edge, but high subscription costs knock off points.

Auto Express - Product Awards Commended 2009

Veteran trap spotter Snooper has serveral models in its range, but the piano-black Sapphire is definitely our favourite thanks to its smart colour screen and huge list of set-up options. On the road it tripped up only on a tricky reversible camera. It is another to boast a rechargeable battery, so it can free up the cigar lighter socket for other kit.


Snooper Sapphire is ready to use - straight from the box. Simply plug the power lead into your cigarette lighter socket, connect to the power bracket and then use the windscreen mount to secure the Snooper Sapphire to your vehicles windscreen. Snooper Sapphire can be installed onto a motorcycle. An earpiece is available as an optional extra so that audible alerts can be heard.
