Best Radar Detectors for City Driving


Do you do most of your driving in an urban environment?


While driving in a city environment, an inferior detector will encounter a myriad of devices that will cause constant false alerts because of its poor filtering system.

City Driving

As a result of this, radar detector manufacturers have installed an option on most of their devices that allows you to switch to city mode, which dampens the sensitivity of your radar detector.

The problem with this concept, however, is that with an inferior detector the sensitivity is taken down so low that your radar detector will not alert until you’re within easy target range of an officer!

Therefore, your #1 concern when selecting the best radar detector for you is the filtering capabilities of the detector.


Best Filtering Radar Detectors:


The radar detectors in the best category are equipped with an AutoLearn GPS filtering system.

This means that the detector learns the location of false alerts automatically through its internal GPS, and forever locks these locations out by storing the exact frequency and location of each detector.

The detectors that have this feature include the Passport Max, the Escort 9500ix, and the Passport IQ and the Escort 9500ci.

Another advantage of these GPS enabled detectors is that you will also have access to Escort’s Defender database, enabling your detector to alert you to fix photo radar and red light camera locations.

Better Filtering Radar Detectors:


If you would like to save $50 and you don’t mind manually blocking out the known false alert locations, then the Beltronics Pro 500 would be your detector of choice.


Good Filtering Radar Detectors:


If you have budget constraints, then at least consider a radar detector that I rate in the Good filtering range.

These include the Escort 8500 x50, and the Bel Pro 300.

If you don’t want or need the arrows, the Escort iXc is the natural alternative for those seeking an exceptional detector that is suited to just about anything you can throw at it.
