Is Your Radar Detector a New Car Detector?


Did you know that most radar detectors being sold today are nothing but new car detectors?


Several years ago car manufactures have been installing collision avoidance devices and soon these devices will become mandatory in all new cars sold in the US.

The problem that these blind spot, adaptive cruise control and parking assist sensors cause is that most of them utilize the same K-band radar frequencies that police use to enforce traffic laws.

Thus most of the radar detectors being sold today have become “new car detectors” and are completely worthless in protecting you against the threat of police radar enforcement.
