I have the Snooper Neo S4.. Works a treat..

As for the law. Well up until recently there was a bill up to have "Radar" detectors criminalised again.. (detectors that detect radio waves)
However due to the costs involved and government time to get it through parliment, it has been dropped..
There was some talk that Laser Detectors (detectors that detect Infra-Red light) were included in this, but was unclear..

So Radar/Laser Detectors will remain legal to own and use in the UK for the foreseable future.. Unless the European Government get involved!!

GPS devices were never discussed in the bill as these devices do not detect anything.. They use Global Positioning to alert you of the camera locations..

Be aware however that ALL of these devices are ILLEGAL to OWN/USE in some other European countries..
France is a good example.. If you are caught with one in the vehicle it will be confiscated on the spot & you will be issued with a Massive instant fine.. And/or your vehicle may be impounded..
