6 Radar Detector Buying Tips | Car Audio


Hi my name’s Movin On, and I’ve been working
in the field of car audio and mobile electronics for over 8 years. I’ve installed everything from navigation
systems, to full car stereo systems, remote starters, alarms and beyond. To learn more, visit our website at www.movinon.com. When purchasing a radar detector, you must
first understand that they’re two different types of radar detectors–dash-mounted radar
detectors and integrated radar detectors. Both have advantages and disadvantages. A dash mounted radar detector plugs into your
cigarette lighter and suction cups to your windshield. The advantage of this is it can be quickly
put away, and not easily stolen. Also, you can put it into another car if you’re
using a different car. If you have multiple vehicles, this may be
the way to go. Integrated units are mounted on the front
bumper, rear bumper, and inside the grill and usually feature a laser diffuser. A laser diffuser will actually make it so
that laser shots cannot read your speed. Now eventually they may read your speed by
buy that time you will have slowed down. You also want to check your local laws for
laser and radar to make sure that you’re following them when you buy one of these detectors. A lot of dash mounted radar detectors and
integrative radar detectors feature GPS marking that can warn you of red light cameras and
speed traps. These are very useful if you live in the suburbs
or if you live in the city, as radar isn’t typically used on residential roads. The GPS monitors the location of the vehicle
and it queries a database of all these locations. If you see a location that’s not in the database,
you can flag it and it’ll be shared with other users. It’s your responsibility to insure the legality
of radar detectors and laser diffusers in your area. The police stay up-to-date with radar detector
technology and they’re always trying to make sure that their radar guns somehow surpass
the radar detectors. So a lot of times what you’re paying for is
the more updated technology that’s gonna stay on top of what law enforcement is using.
