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 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.

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? As well as the UK and Ireland, the AURA speed trap database now offers Worldwide protection Including Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, 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.

Premium TMC (Traffic Management Content) Traffic information technology - FREE of charge!

If you're an experience driver you will know the importance of needing to know exactly what lies ahead. Accurate and reliable information is a must to ensure that you arrive on time. Traffic information is fed from 100's of thousands of vehicles and sensors across the country providing up to the second information.

Snooper's Pro TMC service will alert you to traffic incidents across the country. If there is congestion on your route simply ask your satellite navigation unit to find a route around it.

Here® Maps for Life (Formerly Navteq®)

A satellite navigation system is only as good as its mapping software - this is why the DB8500 utilises Here® Maps for Life street level mapping, ensuring that you can travel from A to B using the best route possible and more importantly, without getting you lost. By using Here® Maps for Life digital map data, the DB8500 is able to offer accurancy, detail, reliability, and flexibility providing you with a highly accurate representation of the detailed road network.
