Ventura has the answer.
This unique software will create a route based on the attributes of your vehicle. Simply tell Snooper Ventura the size and weight of your vehicle, plus the type of load if applicable and the Ventura software will calculate a safe, larger vehicle friendly route. Routes will be calculated based on roads with adequate width and height, excluding roads with low bridges or weight restrictions plus many other hazards across the UK and Europe.
Improved routing - no other satellite navigation system routes in the same way.
It's not just about routing to avoid hazards. Ventura's unique routing algorithm ensures that where possible motorhomes, campers and larger vehicles are only taken on appropriate larger vehicle friendly roads. No other sat nav system on the market creates routes in the same way.
Ventura - more hazard information than any other caravan sat nav.
Ventura uses HERE transport data to provide the core caravan, camper and motorhome data. However, Snooper Ventura also incorporates additional information ensuring more comprehensive cover than other caravan sat navs using the standard HERE Maps for Life package. Ventura offers greater cover on smaller, narrower roads where it is most needed. Snooper Ventura has more hazard information on more roads across Europe than any other portable Motorhome, camper and caravan sat nav system, a system that is designed specifically with the caravan and motorhome driver in mind.
Ventura Sat Nav will save you £££'s in fuel and time!
Recent research has shown that a Ventura caravan sat nav will pay for itself quickly. Sat nav users on average drive 16% fewer miles, which means caravan and motorhome drivers use 16% less fuel.

Award winning Speed Camera location technology - From only £29.99 inc vat per year!
Snooper Ventura is completely unique. Unlike any other satellite navigation system Ventura provides you with speed limit alerts specific to the class of vehicle you are driving. Plus you can update the speed camera database 24hrs a day 365 days a year. Ventura uses our unique AURA™ database which is updated daily, so the second a new speed camera is added you can download it, because for a regular tourer anything less than 100% cover is just not an option. Ventura gets you effortlessly from A to B whilst ensuring that you get there with your driving license intact.
THE AURA™ ADVANTAGE! THE IMPORTANCE OF VERIFICATION - All speed camera databases are not created equal.
Unlike AURA™, many other GPS speed camera databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera, speed trap or a red light camera from a traffic flow camera or a surveillance camera. These speed camera databases could result in annoying false alerts, which could lead you to start ignoring even legitimate alerts - defeating the point of having a speed camera alert system in the first place.
Other speed camera databases are not updated every day, and they also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these camera 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™ speed camera database.
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?
How does it work?
As well as the UK and Ireland, the AURA™ speed camera database now offers Worldwide protection. Included in our system are locations in Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Romania, Russia, North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and is still growing.
Payments by Futurepay automatic payment system by credit or debit card. Please check local/country laws regarding speed camera alerts.

All payment packages provide unlimited access to the AURA™ Worldwide speed trap database!
