Snooper S280 Sapphire Plus

Time 13 years ago

PLAYING golf is a great way to ease away the stresses and strains of modern motoring – but only if you can find the course in the first place!

Not only will Snooper’s latest sat nav system get you to those unfamiliar courses, but it can give you a head’s up on the course you’ll be playing too.

The S280 Sapphire Plus has access to information on more than 2,000 golf courses across Europe with its Golf Pro Shot Saver software.

Users can download detailed information on their chosen courses (up to 100 at a time) and will then get stats, such as distances to pins, bunkers and lakes, as they play.

Granted, the golfing function won’t be something every driver uses, but the Sapphire Plus is packed with other goodies too.

The palm-sized multipurpose navigator also boasts sat nav, speed camera locations, MP3 music player with the ability to play videos, as well as photo viewing software.

The 2.7-inch colour screen has a touch screen display and the mapping software can search for destinations via postcode as well as standard addresses.

Directions are given verbally and matched with on-screen icons, and to keep the unit compact the GPS satellite antenna has been built in.

It’s got a 256mb memory as well as a 64mb memory card and comes with a rechargeable battery.

Price: £279.99
