LYNX from Snooper uses state-of-the-art GPS technology to give you protection from all types of fixed speed cameras. But that's not all! LYNX now uses GPRS mobile data technology to provide advanced warning of mobile speed traps as well. Normal speed trap detectors can only alert you to fixed speed cameras such as Gatso and Truvelo cameras, but LYNX is different.

With one touch of a button any member of the LYNX community can share the location of any mobile speed trap or camera with all other LYNX users. The instant a mobile speed camera has been spotted all other LYNX users in the area will be notified. Also LYNX is updated automatically - all new camera positions are sent to you wirelessly. No downloading using a PC or internet connection necessary!



Snooper has assembled a professional team that devotes every working day to verifying each and every speed camera and high risk zone that goes into the AURA database.

Many other GPS databases rely to a large extent on information provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera or red light camera from a traffic-flow camera or surveillance camera. These databases could result in many annoying false alerts, which might lead you to ignore even legitimate alerts, defeating the point of having a GPS database in the first place.

Other databases are not updated daily, and also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these databases are not always as up-to-date as they could be and are likely to miss alerts.

Snooper LYNX with GPRS takes this technology one step further. With LYNX, the AURA database is delivered to you automatically using GPRS mobile data technology. Speed trap positions are sent your device wirelessly wherever you drive, limiting your chances of missing a camera. New camera positions will be sent you seconds after they have been added to our database.


If another user sees a mobile speed camera or hazard they can share this information with you instantly with one touch of a button. You can then be alerted to mobile speed traps.

AURA's reliability is backed up by Snooper, one of the most trusted and respected satellite navigation and speed camera location manufacturers. Snooper has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance since being established in 1979.
If you're considering a GPS speed camera locator to reduce your risk of an unintended accident or speeding ticket, doesn't it make sense to go with the product that reduces that risk the most?

What Auto Express had to say.

As more mobile safety cameras appear, standard locators can't keep pace. But Snooper's new Lynx uses GPRS to talk to other owners, giving you the latest information. The compact unit is well finished, and blends in with our car's interior. Three suckers on the screen mount, along with a rubber bush, meant we didn't notice any rattles. Resolution was good on the 2.7-inch screen, and sound quality also impressed. We liked the option to tailor the unit to individual requirements including a user-defined distance limiter. It picked up all the cameras on our test route and detected a GPS signal quickly. It told us what each camera was, and alerted us if we were speeding on approach. Our time with the Lynx was limited, so we were unable to rate its live updates. But if this works as well as the rest of the package, it's a great buy.
