Snooper Lynx GT LIVE explained
The Snooper Lynx GT LIVE looks identical to the Lynx GT Lite and indeed the outer casing is the same. The difference between the two models is that the LIVE version updates itself automatically with new speed cameras, whereas the Lite version needs to be connected to a computer with an internet connection to achieve the same.
Ongoing subscription charges for the Lynx GT LIVE are either £7.99 a month, £22.99 a quarter or £86.99 a year. However, the suggested selling price (SSP) of £179.99 includes the first 12 months of the live automatice updates - this represents a saving of £36.99 from buying the LITE version and adding live updates via subscription.
The Lynx GT LIVE has a built-in SIM card and utilises GPRS technology, the same used in mobile phones. Once subscribed to the Snooper AURA LIVE speed trap database the Lynx GT LIVE continuously updates itself with new cameras. Plus users of the Lynx LIVE can also at the press of a button report and share mobile cameras as they spot them with other Lynx Live users. Reported mobile cameras stay live in the AURA live database for six hours.

The Snooper Lynx GT Lite speed camera detector appears identical to the Lynx GT LIVE model and it almost is. That is apart from one BIG difference, which is the Lite version requires a PC to update the speed camera database, whereas the LIVE version automatically updates itself as you drive. This is down to the built-in GPRS technology that the Lynx GT LIVE is equipped with.
The benefit of Lynx GT LIVE version is clear - LIVE and automatic updates when you need them most out on the roads of the UK.
The cost difference of maintaining the two different versions is though very vast. The Lite version comes with FREE lifetime speed camera updates, whereas the LIVE version costs £7.99 a month, £22.99 a quarter or £86.99 a year. A higher price, but what price do you place on your driving licence?
