Radar Detector Detectors
BEL XR Magnum vs. Spectre III RDD
|Escort Redline EX Portable Undetectable Detector||Defeats the cops latest RDD!|
Can the police tell if I am using a radar detector?
In WA, radar detectors are currently legal and you don't need to worry about having an undetectable radar detector. If you are in the eastern states of Australia it is likely that the police in your state are using radar detector detectors (RDD's). The most common RDD used in Australia is the Spectre III (also known as the Stalcar) and is widely known as the best RDD available to the police. The Bel STi range is the only radar detector series that is undetectable by the Spectre III RDD to date. If you find another site claiming undetectability as them to provide you with video evidence or 3rd party test results like those provided HERE on our site!
The "Wall of Shame"
|What is Stealth?
"Stealth" is a generic term used to describe any radar detector offering some type of RDD protection. For example, if the police are using a traditional VG-2 radar detector detector (RDD) the VG-2 cloaking on radar detectors would mean that they could not detect your detector.
What is Spectre?
Spectre is the next generation in radar detector detection (RDD) technology. Like VG-2, Spectre helps police identify drivers using radar detectors in areas where they are illegal, but it is more accurate, has greater range, and can defeat most modern stealth technologies. The only radar detector that is 100% stealth against the Spectre I, II, and III is the Bel XR Magnum sold here on our website. The Spectre III (also known as the Stalcar) is the most common radar detector detector used by police in Australia.
Do I need a Stealth Radar Detector?
If you are in Western Australia you currently DO NOT need a fully Stealth Radar Detector as RDD's are not used in WA. If you are in a state where radar detectors are illegal and RDD's are used it is highly recommend that you purchase the Escort Redline EX or the Uniden R3, the only detectors that are truly stealth against RDD's used in Australia.
How long with the Escort Range remain undetectable?
The good thing about the Escort range is that they do not leak any radio frequencies. This means that even if the police release a new radar detector detector the Escort range will remain undetectable because there is still no radio frequency leakage to detect! This makes the Escort range the best choice for Australian states where radar detector detectors are in use - namely all states besides Western Australia. It is important that you send your detector back to us once every 18 months so it can be tested in our microwave lab and serviced if required to ensure the detector is not emitting any radio frequencies.
Old VG-2 Technology:
|The first radar detector detector on the market was known as the VG-2 Interceptor which is no longer in use by any police units in Australia or anywhere else as far as we know. If a radar detector is VG-2 undetectable it really does nothing for you in Australia.|
