Best Radar Detectors
The following are Radar Roy's top picks for the Best Radar Detectors!
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!
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? "
Radar Detectors are illegal in Virginia, Washington D.C., and in commercial vehicles over 10,000 pounds.
The Bel STi Driver is the ONLY radar detector made today, that can defeat the Spectre and all other RDD devices.
So if you frequently drive in Virginia, Washington D.C., or drive a commercial truck, the Bel STi would be the right detector for you.
