Radar detector tests & reviews using real-world traffic enforcement

radar detector tests & review 2024

Radar detector reviews you tend to find online are essentially product sales pages linking to Amazon from affiliate marketers, often providing misleading or incomplete information and often showing outdated or inferior radar detectors that shouldn’t be considered.

Affiliate marketers make their commisions whether or not you purchase the right detector or not, so most affiliate sites have no consequences if you were directed to the wrong purchase.

Our radar detector reviews, on the otherhand, are based upon real-world radar detector tests often on the road, while driving at elevated speeds where a radar detector is most valuable, where we risk actually getting speeding tickets, and we only focus on the top performing radar detectors currently available.

So you won’t find an outdated or sub-par radar detector among our reviews.

We have driven with every detector reviewed, putting our driving record on the line in the process, so you can rest assured our findings and recommendations are going to be accurate.

Here you’ll not only find a great radar detector which fits any budget, but you will also find what type of traffic enforcement that you will encounter.

Today, traffic enforcement technologies, which can be detected by the best radar detectors, come down to the folllowing:

  • X-band police radar
  • K-band police radar
  • Ka-band police radar
  • MultaRadar MRCD/MRCT photo radar
  • Gatso radar photo
  • Redflex photo radar
  • Redlight and speed on green photo radar (including Redflex HALO)
  • Police lidar
  • Poliscan scanning lidar photo enforcement

Not every radar detector is able to detect and alert to some of these systems, while other radar detectors perform better than others.

While we have conducted more tests in the past of other older radar detectors as well as laser jammers, we are only including our more recent radar detector reviews below.
