Why Radar Detectors Pay for Themselves
Tip: Radar detectors make easy, excellent gifts for the drivers in your life
You have many options when it comes to radar detectors but they usually start at about $199. When you start looking at the fines, court fees, and insurance rate hikes, you could be looking at a ticket that equals thousands of dollars when all is said and done. Not to mention all of the time and hassle involved in traffic school, fighting a ticket, and even being pulled over in the first place. Whether you're driving to work, school, or on a road trip, your new radar detector will help keep you out of trouble and on your way.
How Radar Detectors Work (and they do work!)
Fact: Radar Detectors are legal for non commercial vehicles in 49 states including the Carolinas. Virginia is the only state where they are not permitted.
Radar detector technology has come a long way and if you haven't seen one in action in awhile, it might be time to take another look. Radar detectors work their magic by detecting the frequency ranges, or bands, used by police radar guns: K-band, X-band, SuperWide Ka-band, and POP. Some detectors also have the ability to detect the laser from a lidar speed gun for added protection.
When a radar or a lidar gun is detected, the driver is alerted either by sound and/or on a display so they have an opportunity to check their speed. Many radar detectors come equipped with city and highway modes which change the detector's sensitivity and reduce false alerts.
There's an App for That
New products like Escort Live use an app to send real time alerts for speed traps, red light cameras, and more to drivers based on other users data and feedback.
Radar Detector Installation
You can simply place your corded or cordless radar detector in your car yourself by mounting it on the windshield with suction cups or other mounting options depending on the product. But for a cleaner look that keeps your radar detector out of view, you can also choose to get a custom installed radar detector that nobody but you will know is there.
"They did a custom install of head unit, four speakers, amp and kicker subwoofer in my show car. Top notch service, fast install, on time delivery. I could not be more pleased with what they did. Highly recommended. They will do all my audio going forward."

"I have been a customer for years now and have never been disappointed! I have had everything from inverters and emergency lights installed for my work van, to a radio installed for my personal truck. They even install truck bed covers! Travis and Josh both helped tremendously. Top notch customer service! Very knowledgeable and do super clean installs that look like they were from the factory. Can't go wrong here. I'll continue using them with confidence.."
