Best radar detector review: what are the top radar detectors of 2020?
Radar detector reviews of the best radar detectors available on the market in 2020 from Cobra, Escort, Radenso, Uniden, Valentine, and Whistler.
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.

Radar detectors continue facing more difficult challenges on the road in 2019. The best radar detector used to be considered to be one that was the most sensitive and alerted to police radar from the farthest distance but this hasn’t been the case for some time now. The best radar detectors today offer plenty of radar detection and alerting range and selecting one solely on the basis of range and sensitivity to police radar is not something that I would recommend as there are other aspects of performance that matter equally much of which will be mentioned below.

Introduction to the Whistler CR97
We have been anticipating the new Whistler CR97 for some time and after driving with this new radar detector for more than 12,000 miles–more than any other detector prior to its public release–it was certainly worth that wait.
For those that have followed me over the last 14 years, you know that I hold Whistler in high regard for consistently producing radar detectors that offer very good performance for a great value. I am pleased to report that the new Whistler CR97 provides an incremental improvement that is greater than any model introduction that has preceded it.

Best Radar Detector Reviews 2016 Introduction
To save you time, I’m providing a summary overview of each of the radar detectors that I am including in my list along with the pros and cons of each radar detector.
For those of you interested in reading a more in-depth review of each radar detector, I have provided links to those reviews as well. Like our best radar detector review 2016, this list does not include radar detectors that are no longer being manufactured or being being phased out in the near future.

Introduction to the Whistler CR93 & Whistler CR88 Radar Detector
The publishing of this review has long been overdue as Whistler had provided me with an early production sample, back in June, of their up and coming release of the new Whistler CR93 and Whistler CR88 radar detectors. Both the Whistler CR93 and Whistler CR88 radar detectors replace their outgoing Whistler CR90 and Whistler CR85 detectors.
