Snooper S6900 Ventura sat nav set-up

What makes the Snoopers S6900 Ventura sat nav an essential piece of kit for a motorhome or caravan towing is that it has been specially designed to suit the different needs of these leisure seeking drivers. While most makes of basic sat navs are great at getting you from point A to point B on a one-stop journey, the needs of a driver on a touring holiday can be very different!

Straight out of the box this sat nav is really easy to set up and use. Setting up your device has been made simple with a set of on-screen instructions to follow after you first switch the device on. A top tip for new users is to sit in your vehicle the first time you switch on the sat nav. It makes the whole set up much quicker and easier because the maps and GPS will load more efficiently.

As the Snooper S6900 Ventura has been specially designed for use by large vehicle owners, the software will prompt you to enter your caravan or motorhome details, such as height, length, width, weight and axle type. Using this information, the sat nav will avoid sending your down roads and narrow lanes that will be unsuitable for your vehicle. You can be confident of avoiding routes with low bridges, sharp bends and narrow lanes with no passing places etc.

Stability and high visibility

The Snooper S6900 Ventura sat nav comes with a magnetic mounting bracket that offers very sturdy support for your device once you have fixed it to your vehicle. The mounting bracket comes with a strong suction pad and it is attached so well to the bracket that there is no wobble or movement of your device while in motion.

When not in use, you can remove the sat nav from the bracket and store it safely in a tough hard-backed protective bag, which you can lock away for safekeeping.

The device has a 7-inch touchscreen that is easy on the eye and makes reading the displayed information clear and simple without squinting or eye strain. While driving the sat nav will display route information and simple directions as well as keeping you aware of your speed and alert you should you exceed the local speed limits.

Feature-packed model

What makes the Snooper S6900 Ventura a good choice for a caravan or motorhome driver is that you can buy a Snooper reversing camera that links up with the sat nav to help make the reversing of your caravan much safer and avoiding any blind spots or hidden objects in your path.

Another outstanding feature that is especially useful for high-sided vehicles such as caravans and motorhomes is the warnings for windy routes, low bridges and steep hills. The sat nav will re-route you to avoid these obstacles when necessary.

The Snooper S6900 sat nav also has a motorway lane display to make it easier to travel of motorways and give you plenty of notice of up and coming junctions and what lane you need to use to either exit or stay on route.

Easy to find campsites

If you are on a touring holiday with your caravan where you want to stop off along your route to explore many local places, then the device is invaluable for its huge list of campsites that offer facilities suitable for a touring caravan or motorhome.

If you want to simply set off driving and then look for the closest campsite once you become a bit road-weary, or you really like an area and want to stop off to explore more of it, then you can search for a campsite nearby and the sat nav will calculate the distance and an expected time of arrival so you can phone ahead to check availability and make arrangements to stop over there.
