Just before Christmas Snooper announced that they were going to offer free lifetime map updates on their Truckmate and Ventura ranges for the first time in their history. As you can imagine, the offer proved very popular and we saw a clear surge in sales of units which included free lifetime maps.
The only difference between these two navigation devices is the screen size. Both the S5000 Ventura Pro and S6400 Ventura pro let you enter your vehicle dimensions and when a route is programmed, your vehicle size is taken into account and only caravan / motorhome friendly routes are given.
In the past, you would have had to pay to keep your Ventura up to date with a new map being released annually. This cost £85 for a single update and £130 for a lifetime subscription so free lifetime maps as standard on the S5000 Ventura Pro and S6400 Ventura Pro offers a substantial saving.
As with all Snooper Ventura navigation devices, the S5000 and S6400 come preloaded with official site data from the Caravan Club. You can select your destination by searching for Caravan Club sites and CL sites you know by name, location or by proximity to your current location. Ventura will then route you to your site, sending you only down verified caravan and motorhome friendly roads.
Combine the additional points of interest which run into their thousands and as with the maps and software, are completely free to update.
Snooper are without doubt the market leaders when it comes to specialist navigation. In our experience they have left TomTom and Garmin struggling with their equivalent specialist navigators.
