The latest map updates guaranteed
After registration and initial GPS contact, you will always have the option to receive the latest Here Global™ Lifetime maps for free. Lifetime map updates worth €159 incl. VAT (mobile navigation systems) or €249 incl. VAT (built-in navigation systems) can be downloaded free of charge from the Snooper website 2-4 times a year!
Advanced road maps
BUS&COACH uses high-quality digital maps from Here Global™, the market leader. Routes can be calculated using postal codes, street names, and places of interest, and even by simply entering a city, a location, GPS coordinates, a route with several intermediate stops, by selecting a destination directly on the map or a camping space with the facilities that you have selected.
Coach-specific radar device locations
Unlike other navigation devices, our navigation systems show you the speed limits that are applicable specifically to your vehicle size and class. In addition, BUS&COACH allows you to update the AURA™ radar database free of charge 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
While many traditional navigation systems with radar warning devices only provide updates every 3 or 4 months, our dedicated radar data acquisition team updates the database on a daily basis, so that you can download the update the very second when a new radar device is added. Snooper BUS&COACH will take you from A to B effortlessly, all the while ensuring that your driving licence is not jeopardised.

- speed cameras
- traffic light cameras

Day & night mode
The screen brightness for the day & night modes can be adjusted via the menu. The night mode darkens the map view so that you are not blinded.
You can choose between 2-D view, 3-D view and north orientation for the map view.
Personal destinations can be saved via the menu. These can be set as the current destination at any time. The favourites are shown as symbols in the map view.
Continued calculation in tunnels
If the GPS reception is disturbed in a tunnel, an exact route simulation is carried out.
Over two million places of interest in Europe (many with phone numbers)
An extensive list of bus parking spaces, bus stops, bus terminals, coach stops, tourist information offices, snack bars, restrooms, hotels, restaurants, petrol stations, ATMs, airports, train stations, shops and more. You can reach your desired destination at the push of a button. Your own POI favourites can be imported easily as a csv file.
Find POIs along the route
Make your choices from our extensive list of POIs and have them displayed within a radius of about 2 km along your calculated route.
Multiple-destination route calculation (multi-routing)
An elegant design has always been a key feature of Car Guard Systems' navigation systems. But they don't just look good on the outside - you can always count on them to deliver the expected performance. For example, let's take a look at our new and unique multiple-destination route planning software. Multiple-destination routes enable you to calculate a single route with up to 16 different destinations by simply adding the addresses. You do not have to stop and restart the device and laboriously search for each individual address. You can now easily calculate all destinations for the day, change their order at any time, and add new destinations or delete existing ones. It is possible to configure up to eight travel routes with several successive destinations.
If you wish, you can even have the software calculate the shortest path and the most sensible sequence of route stages automatically. You can select route options for each individual intermediate destination. At each stop, you can view the intermediate destination on the map along with the associated time and distances.
Coach mode and optional car mode
Although BUS&COACH was specifically designed to guide buses & touring coaches on safe and approved roads, the product also has a car setting. Just switch the navigation system to car mode and you will be guided to your destination using the best possible route for your car. Since the navigation system is offered as a mobile version, it can be moved easily between different vehicles. This means that you get two navigation systems in one package!
Connection for the vehicle loudspeakers
For the playback of music, video and navigation announcements(included with the S8110 model/the radio-voice output amplifier module is required for the S6900, SC5900DVR and S2700 models).
Professional traffic jam avoidance*
If you drive professionally, you know how important it is to be well-informed about what to expect on the road.
Accurate and reliable information is a must to ensure that you arrive at your destination in time. Traffic information is fed into the system from hundreds of thousands of vehicles and sensors across Europe, which makes it very up-to-date.
The Bus&Coach Traffic Jam Service warns you about all traffic incidents in the country and lists them in order of their distance from your current location or alphabetically. In addition to this overview, you can also monitor traffic incidents that are on the route that you have programmed into the system. And if there is a traffic jam on your route, you can simply have the navigation system automatically calculate a route (with an alternative route) that bypasses it.
Intelligent route calculation
The route calculation is performed based on the route characteristics (e.g. steep gradients), the vehicle speed, the vehicle dimensions and the vehicle type
Navigating according to POI symbols or motorway exit numbers on the map
Search for and find your destination based on our POI symbols or the highway exit numbers using our Map Search function.
Legal speed warning
Your navigation system displays the permitted maximum speed on almost all roads throughout Europe. You can select the permitted speeds for specific vehicles: cars, touring coach or bus with standing passengers. The value for the desired speed deviation after which a warning will be issued can be selected freely by the user.
Bluetooth® wireless technology
Stay on the safe side of the law. BUS&COACH is equipped with Bluetooth® so you can answer a call safely while driving and keep both hands on the steering wheel.
User-specific text size display on the map (4 levels)
Enlarge the street names or other labels on the display to make them even easier to read!
Your individual route
Calculate and save your desired individual route. Use the map search function to select one or more streets in your desired stations. With Your Route, you can create your own customised and individual routes! Most importantly, it enables you to quickly select several destinations in a certain area (driving to hotels, visiting interesting sights) directly on the map and combine them to create a route!
System and configuration security code
To protect your settings against unwanted changes, you can lock the menu settings and the stored vehicle-specific data with a personal password (except for SC5900DVR).
In the menu you can choose what important information should be displayed on the navigation system while driving. You can choose between speed, time of arrival, time remaining, automatic enlargement of the map in the event of a change of direction. In the "GPS" menu you can view the current GPS coordinates and the altitude above sea level.
