Award winning Speed Camera location technology - Optional From £29.99 inc vat
Ventura is completely unique. Unlike any other sat nav system Ventura can provide 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 camera is added you can download it, because 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 license intact.
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. by contacting:
The AURA™ database is constantly updated, and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. AURA’s 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 establised 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?
