The Best Radar Detectors

Radar detectors are very common in the US but are slowly becoming more popular worldwide due to their small size, portability, and relative affordability. Radar detectors are also very compact, easily stored, and because they can detect any radar guns and speed cameras, they provide a useful early warning capability.  The type of radar used is dependent upon the threat that the user is facing.

Owning a police radar detector is essential if you are on the road regularly. If you are too frequently stopped by police, and you are caught with an unlawful radar detector you will be in trouble with the police. Here are some safety tips for owning or operating a radar detector. Do avoid driving in areas where radar use is restricted. Radar is monitored by the police and it is illegal to operate, or possess, a radar detector in these areas.

Valentine One Radar Detector


The Valentine One V1 Radar detector is one of the highest performing radar detectors on the market. One reason for this is multiple radar antennas! The only other detector with two radar antennas is the Bel STi Driver, but in the STi both antennas face forward. In the Valentine One, there is one forward antenna and one rear-facing antenna. Using this combination of antennas, it effectively tells you the band and strength of the radar signal, along with the number of “bogeys,” or radar units being detected. It will also tell you what direction the signal is coming from, and provide the best rear detection out of every other windshield-mounted detector on the market. Even when this sounds too good to be true, there’s more. The Valentine One has excellent laser reception, consistently appearing at the top of tests in this category. In addition to the super high-performance of Valentine’s detector, this model will never become obsolete. The very first Valentine detectors from 1992 look identical to the ones today, and can be sent in to Valentine to be updated with the latest hardware and software (charges may apply). If you decide on a Valentine One, you’ll be in good hands with the same detector for the rest of your life.

Whistler CR90 High Performance Laser Radar Detector: 360 Degree Protection, Voice Alerts, and Internal GPS


The Whistler CR90 laser radar detector is a high performance, professional grade dash model which detects all radar guns used today with total band protection, including X-band, K-band, Superwide Ka-band, and laser. Total laser detection identifies Laser Atlanta Stealth mode, Laser Ally, and the new LTI Truspeed S. It’s equipped with a pre-installed internal GPS database to alert you to speed and red light traffic camera locations in the United States and Canada, which can be updated via USB. Delivers 360 degrees of complete perimeter protection, detecting signals from the front, sides, and rear. Features Radar Signature ID (RSID) which is a Ka-band radar identifier that displays Ka 33.8, 34.0, 34.3, 34.7, or 35.5 when detecting these common Ka speed radar systems. Laser Signature ID (LSID) indicates the Pulses Per Second (PPS) transmitted by speed laser or other forms of laser sources. The POP Mode detection feature is an advanced speed detection capability that responds to brief bursts of radar. Traffic Flow Signal Rejection (TFSR) helps eliminate alerts from radar based traffic flow sensors and 6 filter modes reduce false alerts caused from other radar detectors. The low emission design makes it difficult to be detected by VG-2 and other radar detector detectors. This laser radar detector includes real voice alerts and an OLED text display that shows alerts and signal strength and contains many other features, such as Stay Alert, vehicle battery saver, 3 city modes, highway mode, and alert priority that make this a top notch detector. Measures 4.93″ L x 3.12″ W x 1.31″ H, and includes the radar detector, a 12V power cord, USB update cord, dash pad, windshield bracket kit, user guide, and a limited 1 year manufacturer warranty.
