Snooper 4ZERO Elite Explained

The Snooper 4ZERO Elite is a speed camera detector featuring GPS, radar and laser technology. The Snooper 4ZERO Elite also features directionality so you will know whether the speed cameras are enforcing your side of the road using the directional alerts. Plus the 4ZERO Elite is Mac compatible as well as Windows compatible.

Voice and beep alerts warn you to each speed camera location across the world. A voice alert will tell you the type of camera you are approaching and the speed limit will display on screen meaning you do not need to take your eyes off the road to know there is a speed camera in the road ahead. The OLED screen displays GPS signal strength, City Mode status, Electronic Compass, your vehicles speed and the current time. Set up is simply 'plug and play.' Included in the box is a cigarette lighter adapter, dashboard mount and windscreen mount giving you 2 options to mount the Elite in your vehicle. 

A worldwide speed camera database is included with the Snooper 4ZERO Elite.

GPS alerts will alert you to all speed cameras within Snooper's AURA database. You will also know which Gatso speed cameras are live, working and active using the built-in radar detection. This enables you to know which Gatso radar based speed cameras are indeed working or are turned off and inactive.

Speed limit

Manually set a speed limit and if you drive above this predefined speed you will be alerted.

Volume control

Control the volume of the Snooper 4ZERO Elite with the volume dial. Plus there is a mute button to receive no sound warnings.

Auto-ranging alerts

Auto ranging alerts are also included. This feature provides warning a greater distance before the speed camera when driving on roads with a high speed limit and less advanced warning if driving on slow roads.

Front and rear laser detection

Not only will the Snooper 4ZERO Elite warn you of laser speed cameras targeted from in front of your vehicle it will also alert to laser guns targeted from behind your vehicle.

GPS, radar and laser detection

Snooper 4ZERO Elite Questions and Answers

Question: I'm interested in the Snooper 4Zero, please advise if camera updates can be done via mobile phone hotspot internet?

Answer: While the Snooper 4ZERO Elite's internal GPS speed camera database can only be updated via a compatible Windows or Apple computer. The new Snooper 4ZERO Elite BT (Bluetooth) model (which replaces 4ZERO Elite) does have the ability to update via a data enabled mobile phone with Bluetooth. You can also update the 4ZERO Elite BT via a PC (Windows/MAC) as well.

Question: I was thinking of purchasing the Snooper 4Zero Elite. Before I do could you tell me will its performance be affected by the use of a sat nav and a separate dash cam?

Answer: The Snooper 4ZERO Elite uses GPS, radar detection and laser detection which is all built-in and completely passive. It will not interfere with any other electronic device you might be using within your vehicle.

Question: Can the Snooper 4ZERO Elite be mounted out of sight in the car, or does it have to be on the dash? I have a redundant glove box that I might want to put it in.

Also, for local journeys , can I “teach“ the unit as to where I see mobile cameras?

Can I also teach it to ignore false signals on my most used routes and to ignore them?

Answer: The Snooper 4ZERO Elite comes with both windscreen suction cup mount and Velcro pad for dash mounting. The Snooper 4ZERO Elite needs to reside in one of these two places and not a glove box for three main reasons:

  1. The Snooper 4ZERO Elite LED text display would not be visible in a glove box
  2. The 4ZERO Elite features a built in GPS antenna, to enable a successful satellite fix placing the unit on the windscreen or dashboard would help to achieve this.
  3. The 4ZERO Elite built in radar and laser detector needs to have a clear line of sight of the road ahead, again placing the unit on the windscreen or dashboard would help to achieve this.

You cannot teach the Snooper 4ZERO Elite to ignore false signals or add your own personal locations. You can however change the alert settings in the 4ZERO Elite menu. Can I suggest you read the manual for the Snooper 4ZERO Elite for more information.

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.
