One of the limitations to using your smartphone as a speed camera detector is that until now, you relied on speed cameras being located and stored on a GPS database of some description. Thanks to Snooper, there is a new retro-fitted device called iRadar.
iRadar is a small, waterproof device that mounts behind the front grille on most vehicles, wiring easily into the power supply. iRadar then connects wirelessly to your iPhone via Bluetooth to work in conjunction to the FREE iRadar App. The App will of course provide you with up to the minute fixed speed camera alerts as you drive including Gatso, Truvello, Red light and even Average Speed Cameras. Accident Blackspots or Mobile Riskzones also feature on the GPS alert however, until now there was no way of detecting which cameras are live and where new mobile sites are located that are not yet on the GPS database.
iRadar has a built in radar and laser detector so that as you drive, if a mobile camera is pointing in your general direction, the radar / laser signal is detected and fed into your iPhone via Bluetooth where App alerts you to the detection.
We’ve tested both the app and the iRadar and can safely say that there is nothing like it on the market today! Snooper have long been the market leasers when it comes to speed camera detection technology and this is another industry first that could save you points on your license and make you a better driver!
