“I decided to invest in a decent speed camera detector...”

Good Points
Fantastic early warning of fixed camera systems.

Bad Points
Bulky size, side connection points making installation awkward. Cost.

General Comments
I decided to invest in a decent speed camera detector -Snooper S6R Neo, after receiving my second set of 3 points . My cheap £100 Snooper was not very good and gave lots of false alarms. I looked around and decided on the Snooper S6R Neo with optional radar/laser module. I bought it from http://www.speeding.co.uk for £395, and it arrived two days later. Then you need to register and pay £4.95/month or £99 for 2 years subscription before you can download the camera locations.



After that, it was in the car hunting for Gatso! It found some I didn't know about, but also failed to pick up a few I knew about (A556 between M6 and M56).



When it detects a Gatso, Truvelo, Specs, Mobile etc. It displays the type of camera, distance up to 500M, the road your on, and the speed limit your in. If it fails to pick up the camera via GPS it will detect them with the Laser/Rader module. Other GPS detector either only rely on the GPS or have radar detection, but not laser as well.



You can program your own coordinates for fixed camera it's not picked up, and then upload them next time you download from Snooper.



The radar/laser unit can be installed under the bonnet (for cars with sun shielded windscreen glass) or windscreen mounted.



Money well spent. Highly recommended.



Since purchasing the S6R, I've probably driven more carefully because I've become more aware of the speed limits.
