Best Radar Detector Review Introduction

Radar detectors have evolved more in the last several years than they did for the last several decades.  For much of this time there were effectively only two means of measured traffic enforcement in use, police radar and police laser.  In terms of police radar, there have been three radar bands to measure speed: X-band, K-band, Ka-band.  With police laser, it’s been infrared light at a wavelength of 904nm.  Since these remained the primary methods of measuring speed, radar detectors didn’t need much changing or updating.

The new Uniden R7 has the ability to detect MultaRadar photo enforcement speed cameras when enabled in the configuration menu. We’ve tested a number of different radar detectors with these very hard to detect forms of K-band radar with varying degrees of success.

So, when we received one of a handful or pre-release Uniden R7s, we were interested to see how well the Uniden R7 actually did when faced with one of these systems. We selected one particular location that is especially challenging on radar detectors that are claimed to detect MRCT & MRCD because not only are there two systems (each facing different directions) but they are straddled by two K-band speed signs.

Escort Redline EX Prototypes (formerly Redline 2)

Fans of the Escort Redline have a new treat, the new Escort Redline EX (formerly called the Escort Redline 2)

For the last several years, the Escort brand has seen some pretty significant changes at the helm at the hands of its new owner.  As can be the case, things at times may seem “chaotic” or in flux, but eventually from “chaos” can come order.  With Escort–at least from an engineering stand-point–it appears that the brand remains under good stewardship with a continued focus on product innovation, even if those changes are not coming as forthright as some of us would prefer.
