Best Highway Radar Detectors

Are you a road warrior driving from place to place on the Highway?

highway drivingIf most of your time is spent driving on the highway, your #1 consideration when choosing a radar detector is the sensitivity and range of the detector.

The formula I’ve developed for this is the 4X Rule.

Your #1 consideration when choosing a radar detector for constant highway driving is the sensitivity and range of the detector.

The formula I’ve developed for this is the 4X Rule.

This means that your detector should have at least 4 times the range of a police radar gun's capture range.

So why is it so important to have a detector that can detect signals from so far away?

Well, because of Instant on radar.

Radar Detector ReviewsPolice have the option of putting their radar gun into what is called “standby mode,” which allows them to delay activating the gun until they have a speeder within target range.

If your radar detector has at least this 4X capture range, you have a greater chance of detecting the officer's gun while it is still being activated, and as a result a greater chance of avoiding a ticket.

Due to these factors, I have categorized the detectors that appear on the bottom of this page as being good, better, or best.
