Does the job, once you get used to it.14 Aug 2011
By D. M. Todd
I have recently started a new job that involves a lot of driving and decided to get a camera detector at the recommendation of a colleague. Not because I want ot speed but to avoid accidentally being caught out. There have been a few times when I was almost snapped when the speed limit suddenly dropped from say 50 to 40 and there was a camera set up to trap the unwary.
My colleague has the Road Angel and with hindsight I wish I had paid the extra for that. I chose the snooper because it was cheaper and came with a free tracking software. However, I think it is worth paying the extra for the Road Angel.
My first issue was that it took FIVE days to get the unit activated. Don"t assume you can simply take it out of the box and start using it. You have to register it online first and then wait several days.
When I eventually got it activated, after several calls to the company, I was very disappointed with the software. For one thing, it claims to have a speed limit warning. It does but only ONE warning and only if you set it manually. So if you set the limit to 70mph it will not warn you if you are driving at 60mph in a 50 zone.
The speed indicator is a little idiosyncratic. When you are driving normally the main display will show your ACTUAL speed. This is a useful and clear check, though it would be better if it knew what the speed limit SHOULD be. However, as soon as you get a warning of a speed camera the main display changes to the speed you SHOULD BE DRIVING AT, not your ACTUAL SPEED. The actual speed is shown in a smaller display to the left of the main indicator. This has resulted in several occasions when I thought I was exactly on the limit but was actually over. Read more ›

Good product but not perfect 24 Feb 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase
I have used in the UK and abroad. It is good but it is not perfect, for example the product configuration menu is completely unfriendly. In addition you will not know when it"s the speed limit and when it"s the car speed displayed leading you to possible mistakes. A big plus is that it beeps in the right places.

Snooper Lynx GT 15 Aug 2013
I paid extra to have this unit installed into my car, however as the previous reviewer said it has to be registered and I waited 4 days for it to be connected to the vodfone network. I drove him with a knowledge of many mobile radar sites and expected this to be alerting me soon.........it didnt and my confidence in this began to fade. It alerts me of spec cams on a dual carriageway in worcs when there aren"t any and have not been any for some time. So despite this being GPRS and always kept upto date........well, again my confidence faded some more. I do not think the database is as good as previously read and when I use it in my new Land Rover it does not pick up the satalites. This maybe due to heated windscreen but I drove over 2.5 hours and it still didnt locate one sat. Overall would I buy it again. No. I will cancel my subscription next year before they start to charge me.
