Top 5 Car Radar Detectors

Like if this guide is helpful
Radar detectors, designed to warn drivers of police radar, thereby reducing the odds of speeding ticket issuance, have existed for nearly as long as radar detection devices. Legal battles related to the ownership and usage of these devices persist around the world. In many countries, such as Canada, most of Australia, Brazil, and Belgium, devices to detect or jam radar signals are expressly forbidden. For an extended period of time, the radar detector fell into a legal grey area in the UK. Until 1998, the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949 forbade usage of these devices. However, no ownership restrictions existed. In January of 1998 an amendment altered the antiquated act, permitting both the use and ownership of personal radar detection devices. Since that time, dozens of high-quality radar detectors burst onto the scene.

The Escort Passport 9500ix offers users a highly effective, easy-to-use radar detection option. Multiple types of radar detector are picked up by the Escort Passport 9500ix, including K band, Ka band, Ku band, Laser, and X band. Coverage is available in both the front and rear of the vehicle for maximum effectiveness. Additionally, the system offers many extras aimed at preventing false alarms, which are a common complaint amongst users of radar detection devices. One way the Passport offers protection from false alarms is by automatically reducing level sensitivity when the driver reduces speed. It also warns drivers of VG2 and VG3 radar detector detection devices.
