Snooper Lynx GT LIVE speed camera detector is a 'LIVE' product, this means that it will automatically update as you drive along thanks to built-in GPRS/GSM "mobile phone" technology. The Lynx LIVE provides alerts to both fixed and mobile speed camera locations such as Gatso and SPECS cameras. Plus mobile sites can be reported and relayed to the AURA Live database simply by pressing the 'Target' button on the Snooper Lynx GT.
The Lynx GT is designed to be windscreen or dash mounted and its 2.7-inch full colour TFT LCD screen displays and spoken voice alert provide all the warnings. Subscription charges apply after the initial first 12 months which are included, these are £7.99 a month, £22.99 a quarter or £86.99 a year.
Snooper Lynx GT speed camera detector uses GPS and GPRS/GSM (mobile phone) technology to provide advanced warnings to speed camera locations via an airtime contract. The unit can be powered either via your vehicles car charger or via the built-in rechargeable battery - which provides up to 3 hours operation during normal use.
Alerts on the Lynx GT are given both audibly from spoken voice alerts and via the 2.7-inch full colour TFT LCD colour display so you always know what lies ahead. What makes the Lynx GT unique is that the speed trap data is fed from the AURA live database - the ONLY system from Snooper that gets its speed trap data like this - faster than any other Snooper GPS device, as you drive and without the need of a PC!
12 Months Subscription
Snooper Lynx GT LIVE comes complete with 12 months subscription to the AURA Live speed camera database - offering a saving of up to £36.99 off the normal annual charge when purchased separately. Subsequent subscription is charged at £7.99 a month, £22.99 a quarter, £86.99 a year.
Snooper 'LIVE' product
Snooper Lynx GT is a 'LIVE' product and just like many mobile phones it uses GPRS/GSM technology to wirelessly connect to the network. The network in this case being the Snooper AURA LIVE speed camera database.
When using the Lynx GT LIVE in your vehicle it periodically connects to the AURA LIVE database adding (or removing, if relevant) speed camera locations within a 10 mile radius to a temporary database. Should you be driving in an area with a poor or no GPRS signal, then the Lynx GT will default to the preloaded database. ActiveGPS therefore recommends that you perform a database download from time-to-time using a Windows PC (not Apple MAC), which will permanently update the preloaded database.
Mobile site reporting
The 'LIVE' and connected AURA Live database works both ways - from Snooper and also back to Snooper. So It's also possible for motorists using the Lynx GT to add new and live mobile sites that they spot on the UK's roads. By pressing the large 'Target' button on the front of the Lynx, a mobile speed trap site is added to the AURA Live database and remains there for the following 6 hours.
Snooper Lynx GT also operates as a portable tracking system. Using the airtime contract it is possible to track the position of your Lynx GT anytime the unit's switched on. It is also possible to view current as well as historical journey reports and other useful information including average speed and daily, weekly and monthly mileage.
