Whiplash, lies and fraud; the UK’s growth industry.
In recent years, the UK and Europe has seen a dramatic increase in driving scams and false insurance claims, with over 40 false insurance claims a day* This costs insurers an estimated £392 million per year in the UK alone and hitting the average driver with spiralling insurance premiums. Protect yourself with a DVR on-board and prove that incident wasn’t your fault. With a fitted Snooper DVR, drivers may also see safety benefits, as knowing you are on camera is proven to change motorists driving style, reducing harsh acceleration and sharp breaking.
A spokesman for the insurance industry said, “crash for cash is becoming a booming business, all the fraudsters need is a car and a little know how and they’re ready to go. We certainly recommend that motorists take steps to mitigate any fraud by using a device such as a DVR from Snooper”

2 Channel Recording.
With a 155° Front camera and 130° rear, your DVR-5HD covers almost all vital footage from around the vehicle.

THE AURA™ ADVANTAGE! THE IMPORTANCE OF VERIFICATION - All databases are not created equal.
Unlike AURA™, many other GPS databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera or a red light camera from a traffic flow camera or a surveillance camera. These databases could result in annoying false alerts, which could lead you to start ignoring even legitimate alerts--defeating the point of having a GPS database in the first place.
Other databases are not updated every day, and they also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these databases are not as up-to-date as they could be and are likely to miss alerts.
In contrast, 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.
The AURA™ database is constantly updated, and reliability is backed up by Snooper, one of the most respected and trusted satellite navigation and speed camera location manufacturers. Snooper has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance and has been established since 1979.
If you’re considering a GPS database to reduce your risk of an unintended speeding ticket or accident, doesn’t it make sense to go with the database—and the company—that reduces that risk the most?
