The first radar detectors appeared on the shelves of digital equipment stores a long time ago, so many experienced motorists have already tried them in operation, as well as draw certain conclusions about how efficiently they work. Some ten years ago, these devices did not work very stably — often the sound signal indicated that the current speed of the car had already been measured. During this time, technology has come a long way.
Today, on the streets of large, medium and small cities, on highways, both stationary cameras and the so-called mobile complexes for photo and video recording of violations are used to measure speed. All of them work in their own frequency ranges. Modern radar detectors also do not lag behind in development — they notify the motorist about 500-1500 meters away that the car will soon fall into the coverage area of the camera beam. Choosing the best model is not as easy as it might seem at first glance. We decided to help our readers a little in resolving this issue and made a rating of the best radar detectors in 2022. In it, we will detail the key characteristics of the most popular devices among motorists, as well as give some useful tips on buying these devices.
How to choose the right radar detector?
First of all, drivers pay attention to how information about the camera is displayed. The vast majority of similar devices notify the motorist using sound or voice signals, as well as LED or LED indication. On sale you can find devices that will additionally say how strong the signal is — this allows you to judge the distance to the camera and the reliability of the signal itself. There are devices equipped with a character or LCD screen. These products are considered more informative, as they can give an idea of the distance to the camera, tell the car’s own speed.
Motorists consider the most effective devices that will display the name of the radar in front of the car. Such a moment fully guarantees that manufacturers have put this type of camera into the memory of the device.
Be sure to consider the ranges supported by the device. The K-format is considered the most common — it is used by most of the radars. However, if the camera is in pulse mode, cheap and low-quality devices may perceive it as interference or ignore it altogether. It is desirable that Ultra-K or POP be found among the ranges — radars with these frequencies always operate in a pulsed mode, respectively, the detector will be able to calculate other pulsed devices. In the last couple of years, radar detectors equipped with a GPS module have become more common, in whose memory the coordinates of all stationary cameras can be stored. However, such devices will need to be updated with an enviable degree of regularity.
If a motorist plans to travel in his car outside of our country, protection against detection will not be superfluous. This is due to the fact that in many European countries the use of such devices is prohibited. The radar detector protected from detection is placed in a shielded case, the most advanced devices calculate the frequency of the direction finder and turn off for a short time.
When we chose products to include in our rating of the best radar detectors, we took into account all the points that we talked about a little earlier. However, other factors influenced the choice. First of all, these are user reviews — we preferred devices with positive reviews, as people themselves wrote about the good quality and effectiveness of a particular model. Not ignored and the ratio of price and quality of construction. The review did not include too expensive products, since not every driver is able to afford to purchase such a device.
