GPS Enabled Radar Detectors
Remember that childhood story about the little boy that cried wolf so many times that when the wolf finally attacked no one believed the boy was actually in harms way?
Well, it's the same story if you decide to get a cheap radar detector.
After hearing it constantly alert at every bank, gas station, and grocery store, sooner or later you’re going to ignore it.
That's when you’ll find that you’re in harms way.
If you’re shopping for a radar detector one of the most important factors you should take into consideration is the filtering of the detector as well as if it has GPS filtering capabilities.
GPS filtering occurs when your detector detects the exact same frequency at the exact same location after three passes. When this happens, it will alert you that it’s locking out that exact frequency and location.
As your detector learns these locations along your route, and locks out the common false alert signals it encounters, your detector will be less likely to alert to false signals and become more dependable.
Now, you may be asking yourself what will happen if by chance an officer chooses to run radar at that exact same spot it previously locked out?
Well, it is very unlikely that the officer’s radar gun would be on the same exact frequency as the door opener at that location, so the radar detector will alert you.
Photo Enforcement Warnings
Another advantage of having a GPS equipped radar detector is that it will be programmed with the exact location of the fixed photo radar and red light cameras that you will encounter along your journey.
