Snooper Syrius GPS

Rivaling the newly introduced Road Angel GPS unit, Snooper is now offering the Syrius. The company hopes to trump its challengers by tapping into an advanced database for speed cameras and other speed traps. Known as Enigma, the database covers the majority of Europe and is intelligent enough to provide warnings dynamically based on distance and speed. When driving safely at or under an impending limit, the system only resorts to visual notices; exceeding the limit, however, triggers a vocal warning and does so earlier than normal if the vehicle is already in a high-speed zone.

Beyond its speed-focused software, the Syrius uses a 4-inch touchscreen and has a lithium-ion battery for handheld use. Battery life isn't currently available. Snooper's GPS system retails for as little as 280 ($545). [Via NaviGadget]
