From reading on here I'd go with one of the cheaper Chinese ones. I've found the Snooper overpriced for what it is.

Snooper works for me ,it has never let me down no matter where I have been. Expensive? Probably but you only get what you pay for..

Have been pleased with my Snooper, toured Scotland with it this year and it didn't let me down.
As someone else said they are expensive but you get what you pay for.(y)

Snooper for me!
Never let me down in uk or France. Downloaded aires and sites.
Also Bluetooth for phone and useful as a small freeview tv!
With the current offer of free lifetime updates it's a no brainer IMHO
And yes - u get what u pay for(y)

Looks like I'm the only one who hates my Snooper! It does have campsites in it and it's mostly taken me right to them.
Maybe it taking me to the centre of a French field and up a single track in Devon was user failure :)

I ended up in the hospital at Arras, my fault for bad typing :notworthy:

i have the S5000 snooper and added reversing camera directly into it very simple, engage reverse picture from camera (y) remove from reverse back to sat nave.

the ventura model has the campsites on not just the CC version

if you do get a snooper ensure you get the latest as its got lifetime maps udates and " a built in " dash camera recorder.

Oh, and buy from Performance products who a re " snooper" snooper direct is not Snooper:doh:

performance products have excellent customer service back up (y) had a problem with charging when mine was nearly 3 years old the took it in checked it out and it came back with a new charger unit "FREE"!

expensive but the get my vote.(y)

My Satnav has lifetime free updates and voice recognition.

It has campsites, Acsis sites, all Stellplatz, all Aires by type, all major fastfood restaurants, supermarkets (all brands), wildcamping locations, English Heritage, National Trust, castles, France Passion, petrol stations, LPG stations, all types of CC sites, all types of C&CC sites, B&Q, motorway services, Archies, Campercontact, Bordatlas, Campingcard, all across the UK and the whole of Europe.

However, it isn't a Snooper it's a Garmin. Sorry about that.

We have the Chinese truck sat nav and it is good value. However, it isn't a patch on the Snooper that I played with; the Chinese one is slower to respond to touch screen commands and takes longer to display routes. If I had the extra cash, I'd get a Snooper (after having another play to confirm that it is as fast as I think that it is) but, for £60, the Chinese machine is adequate.

8yrs, but many years a tugger.
Had, still have, a s7000. It was ok, but the software is very quirky. Now replaced with the equivalent sized Garmin. Superb piece of kit, with free European map updates and speed cameras. It also has traffic, is easy to load POI's, has various inputs, but no tv like the Snooper had, which I never used.:clap: Again not cheap, but reading all the threads regarding the Chinese one, I'm glad I don't have one. :mask:

We have the S6450 Caravan Club edition, bought it at Stratford meet. A great piece of technology. :rock:

Pleased with our Snooper which got us around Belgium, Germany, France etc for 4 weeks recently. Biggest problem seemed to be roads closed for roadworks that was on the proposed route but that's not Snoopers fault.

Multiple Junctions can sometimes be an issue in getting the right one in the heat of the moment but I think that's more driver error.
