Snooper S8000 Pro Sat Nav


Snooper S8000 is a great sat nav designed by Snooper. The Snooper S8000 includes 7-inch screen, DVB-T Digital Television, FREE maps for the lifetime of the product, FREE TMC traffic information and is Bluetooth compatible for hands free calls.

The Snooper S8000 can feature an optional speed camera database. This will warn you to all fixed and mobile speed cameras via the GPS database throughout the UK and Europe whilst getting you from A to B. There is also My Speed database of speed limits included for FREE so you know the speed limit for every road regardless of whether there is a speed camera located along that road or not.

You can store up to 16 multiple destinations along the same route for navigation. Plus you get Lane Guidance and Junction view along motorway networks.

Although the Snooper sat nav range doesn't include radar or laser detection, there is another Snooper product which adds laser detection the S8000 called the Snooper Laser Pod. To read the review click here.

Snooper S8000 Pro Models

In total there are three different Snooper S8000 sat navs these are: Syrius Pro, Truckmate Pro and Ventura Pro.

While all three models have the same features e.g. a 7-inch touchscreen display, DVB-T Digital Television, Bluetooth, FREE TMC traffic updates and FREE sat nav map updates. The different models are preloaded with different software, which are designed to get different motorists or more accurately different vehicles safely from A to B.

If you drive a car or a small van then you need to buy the Snooper Syrius S8000, if you drive a truck or larger vehicle such as a high top-van then the Truckmate S8000 with its truck attribute database is the model you need. On the other hand if you regularly tow a caravan or drive a motorhome then the Ventura S8000 is the model to buy.

All three versions are available below, and with the exception of the S8000 Ventura you can also choose between preloaded UK and Ireland maps or full Europe maps.
