In addition the new Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT features a brand new facility - a first for Snooper - the ability to update the 4ZERO Elite BT built-in GPS speed camera database on the move (away from your home or office) using Bluetooth. To update the GPS database using Bluetooth simply pair the 4ZERO Elite BT with a compatible Bluetooth enabled device with data services e.g. a smartphone or tablet with airtime contract. There is an App to download from Google Play or the Apple Store to enable connectivity to Snooper's AURA speed camera database.

You should never operate the download of the speed camera database whilst driving.

Smart Mute ON/OFF

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT has a Smart Mute feature. When switched on, if you are driving below the speed limit you will only receive a visual warning on the Snooper speed camera detector screen. Whereas, if you are driving above the speed limit, both visual and audible alerts will be provided (the full range of alerts). The Smart Mute feature can be turned off to ensure you always receive the full audible and visual warning to all speed cameras.


GPS, Radar and Laser technology

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT encompasses three different technologies to warn to and detect the presence of speed cameras these are:

1. GPS database alerts - FREE to update, the updatable GPS database features fixed and mobile cameras. Some fixed speed cameras like HADECS3 and SPECS average speed cameras are undetectable via a radar or laser detector - this is when an up-to-date GPS database is invaluable.

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

3. 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.

Taking the technologies in turn, this is how you will receive alerts to them via the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT OLED screen and speaker.

1. GPS database alerts

As you approach a fixed speed camera location the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT 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 BT 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 BT 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 BT 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 Elite BT (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.

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT screen can be dimmed with various dim settings.

2. and 3. Radar and Laser detection

The 4ZERO Elite BT uses built-in 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 BT.

When you are within the range (up to 1 mile) of a live radar or laser based system, the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT screen confirms what is being detected e.g. 'K' band for a radar based system, the unit then also sounds an intermittent beep.

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

Furthermore, Snooper have added a rear facing laser detector to the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT 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 to 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.

Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT will provide advance warning of the following mobile laser and radar devices:

‣LTI - Marksman 20.20
‣LTI - UltraLyte (100pps included), LR, 100, 100LR, 200, 200LR
‣Compact, LRB
‣Kustom - ProLaser I
‣Kustom - ProLaser II
‣Kustom - ProLaser III
‣Kustom - Pro-Lite
‣Kustom - LaserCam II
‣Stalker - LZ-1
‣Laser Atlanta - SpeedLaser, S, R, Stealth Mode
‣Cleartone - Stealth SpeedLaser
‣Jenoptik - LaserPatrol
‣Jenoptik - Laveg, Video-Laveg
‣Multanova - StarLaserRedflex - Lasercam, Lasercam NT
‣Robot - TraffiPatrol, V
‣Sagem - MestaLaser
‣Sagem - EUROLaser
‣Truvelo - Lidar, D-Cam
‣Riegl - LR90-235
‣Fama - famaLaser II
‣Fama - famaShot III
‣Traffic Observer - LMS 291/221/04/05
‣NJL Kft - SCS-101/SCS-102

The radar detector covers the following bands: X, K, Ka, and Ku.

Please note: The Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT is unable to detect in advance a mobile speed camera van/device using a laser or radar gun. The ONLY time the 4ZERO Elite BT can detect a 'live' and 'in-use' laser or radar beam is when one is in use and likely targeting your vehicle.

In addition, if you are the first vehicle over the brow of a hill, round a bend, or simply the Police/camera operator is waiting for your vehicle to come into range, the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT radar/laser detector can ONLY detect a live radar/laser signal when there is one to detect.

The Snooper AURA updatable GPS database contains known fixed and known mobile speed camera locations. This is the best way to know in advance mobile speed camera sites. The radar/laser detector built into Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT will then warn if a live radar/laser gun/device is in actual use.


Snooper AURA speed camera database

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT like all Snooper speed camera detectors is populated by the Snooper AURA speed camera database. The Snooper AURA database provides advanced warnings to known fixed and mobile speed camera locations across the UK, Europe and a growing number of other countries across the world too including Australia,Canada, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa and USA.

The Snooper AURA database is provided FREE* of charge for the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT by the manufacturer (when purchased from ActiveGPS). The Snooper AURA database is updated with the latest locations - however, to receive the latest updates you must perform a download.

(You must download the App from Google Play if you are using an Android phone or download from the Apple Store if you are using an Apple iPhoneto enable connection to the speed camera database). More information relating to the free speed camera updates can be found here or by scrolling down to 'Speed Camera updates (FREE)' further down this webpage.

*To gain access to the free speed camera database, you must first register the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT with the manufacturer. In addition a compatible internet enabled Windows/MAC PC or Bluetooth enabled device with data is required to perform the initial download and subsequent updates.

Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT Questions and Answers

Question: How accurate is the speedometer on the snooper 4zero elite bt?

Answer: The speedometer on the Snooper 4zero Elite BT uses GPS satellites to provide a speed readout, this is more accurate than any vehicle using a conventional speedometer - which depending upon tyre pressure can be out by as much as 10%. GPS speedometers provide better readings at constant or higher speeds. When driving off from a stationary position the speedometer may be a few mph out, before the GPS satellite catch up with your precise location. Most GPS devices have an accuracy of 3 metres.


Question: How to change the minutes on my snooper elite 4 bt?

Answer: If you refer page 14 of the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT manual (13. Clock). You will see that the clock is automatically set by the GPS satellites to GMT. You can then +9 or -9 the hours to suit BST or another time zone around the world. You cannot change the time/hour/minutes manually.


Question: If ordered would I be able to receive the new Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT this month?

Answer: I'm afraid we've been waiting for stock since February, and the manufacturer cannot give us a date when stock will be available. We understand there are production issues causing the continued delay. We cannot specify an expected delivery date. We can email you when the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT comes into stock. If you would like us to do so, please reply to this email and we’ll add you to our list of customers waiting for stock.


Question: I'm interested in the Snooper 4zero Elite BT but have just bought a Ford Kuga with heated wind screen. Does the heated screen affect the performance?

Answer: Unfortunately we do not have a list of vehicles windscreens that the devices we sell e.g. Snooper 4zero Elite BT will work with and won't work with.

The Snooper 4zero Elite BT relies on ability to receive three forms of technology:

1. radar signal
2. laser signal
3. GPS signal

I would suggest you put your question to your local Ford dealership for a definitive answer.


Question: Does the Snooper 4Zero Elite BT show the speed for the road similar to the Road Angel and most Garmin Sat Navs, i.e. can it warn when exceeding the speed limit in areas without cameras?

Answer: No, the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT will only provide the road speed limit at speed camera locations via the updatable GPS database.

The only speed camera detector from Snooper which includes road speed limits as well as an updatable GPS speed camera database is the Snooper MY-SPEED XL.


Question: Can you give more details of the Bluetooth functionality? I assume this will connect to my vehicle? Will this mean speed camera alerts will be via the speakers of my car? I am struggling to imagine what the benefits are of the Snooper 4ZERO Elite having Bluetooth functionality? I would be happy to hear more details of the functionality.

Answer: The Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT (Bluetooth) functionality is for downloading the speed camera database locations whilst on the go. The discontinued, previous model did not have this feature and instead required you to download using a Windows or Mac computer.

You can still download the database using a Windows or Mac computer if you prefer.

The Bluetooth connectivity works with your smartphone, but you will need data roaming access which may be charged by your smartphone network provider.


Question: Does the Snooper 4ZERO Elite bt come preloaded so I don't have to use a computer? Also is this unit as good as the road angel pure.

Answer: No, there is no preloaded database. Above on this webpage we advise:

”To gain access the Snooper AURA speed camera database you must register the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT with the manufacturer and download the database before first use. We also suggest that you subsequently update at least once a week to ensure you are driving with the latest speed camera database.”

…and…

”To gain access to the free speed camera database, you must first register the Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT with the manufacturer. In addition a compatible internet enabled Windows/MAC PC or Bluetooth enabled device with data is required to perform the initial download and subsequent updates.”

We have had no experience of the Road Angel Pure and therefore cannot compare it with the Snooper product.

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.
