Best Radar Detectors
The following are Radar Roy's top picks for Radar Detectors for New Zealand!
(Due to contractual agreements with both Escort and Beltronics, Roy cannot ship any detector marked with an * to any address in Australia or New Zealand.)
Beltronics Vector 995
The Beltronics 995 Vector is the international version of the Bel RX65. The only difference is that the Ka USA setting in the advanced programming, has been omitted from this detector.
It is a top performer on all bands
As X band is NOT used in New Zealand, Radar Roy recommends deleting this band from the detector. To do this press the two buttons on the top right of the detector, go to band select, and select X off.
Escort 8500 X50 *
The Escort 8500 X50 was the winner of "Motor Trends" radar detector shoot out in 2004 with superior range and filtering.
In Roy's testing, the Escort 8500 x50 was the clear winner in rejecting "false alerts" and the range and sensitivity of this detector was unsurpassed!
Beltronics RX65 *
As Beltronics and Escort are now the same company, in 2004 they introduced the Bel RX65 and then the Escort 8500 X50 (replacement for the Escort 8500). These two detectors are similar with the exception that the Bel RX65 has voice and Ku band for European use.
If you are having a difficult choice between the Escort 8500 and the RX65, Roy suggests this:
"Think of the Escort 8500 X50 as a luxury car such as a Jaguar with its sleek design with all the bells, whistles and performance and the Beltronics RX65 as a muscle car like the Shelby, also with strong performance but faster. Which car would you prefer to drive? "
Beltronics STi *
Professional drivers may want to consider the Bel STi Driver, as it is immune to the Stalcar MK3 that enforcement officials use to detect radar detectors in commercial vehicles,
The Bel STi Driver is the ONLY radar detector made today, that can defeat the Spectre and all other RDD devices.
As Radar Roy cannot directly ship product marked with an * to any New Zealand address, he recommends that you visit www.radardirect.co.nz or make arrangements with other parties in the USA to handle/ship your order.
