Product Description

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Product Description The Beltronics Vector 940 is the perfect accessory for the economical driver. When you think about how much just one speeding violation will cost you, an investment like this seems downright practical. The Vector 940 still has six times the range of imports, and covers you for all U.S. Radar and Laser Bands, all at an affordable price.

The perfect radar accessory for the economical driver. Click to enlarge.

Includes coiled power cable.

Easily install with quick-release windshield mount.

Superior Detection
The Vector 940 includes full X, K, SuperWide Ka, and Safety Warning System radar capability, laser detection, patented Mute and AutoMute features, audible and visual band alerts, and all the performance you'd expect from Beltronics.

Digital signal processing (DSP) technology and multiple laser sensors give you long-range performance, and greatly reduce the number of false alarms. On top of that, the Vector 940 is invisible to VG-2 radar detector detectors, keeping you one step ahead. It also features Highway/City sensitivity settings to tailor performance to your needs.

Easy to Use
The rugged Vector 940 gives you control right at your fingertips. Patented Mute and AutoMute technology allows you to quickly silence alerts. Advanced programming lets you customize several features, and all controls are easily accessible on top of the device.

Installation is also a snap: use the quick release Windshield QuickMount to attach it to your vehicle's windshield, and remove it in a snap. Don't want to leave it in your vehicle? No problem, because Beltronics includes a travel case to keep it secure while you're on foot.

Ultra-Bright LED Display
Don't miss a visual alert with the 940's 280-LED alphanumeric display. Exclusive threat display tracks and displays multiple radar signals, including signal strength. You can also view Safety Warning System (SWS) messages about upcoming hazards, construction, and more.

Enjoy three different brightness settings, or operate in dark mode if you'd prefer only audio alerts.

Total Tracking Laser
Unlike Radar signals, which are highly reflective, laser signals have very poor reflective characteristics. Many of today's laser detectors do not have the high sensitivity necessary to detect laser within a large "field of view." The Vector 940 incorporates Beltronics' best laser detection, which uses twin laser ports to detect energy far outside the main laser beam--including off-axis signals--providing a 360-degree field of view. The alerts provided by your unit are the same whether signals are received from the front or rear.

How Safety Radar Works
Safety Warning System (SWS) a modified K-band radar signal to alert users of Highway Construction or Maintenance, Highway Hazard Zone Advisories, Weather Related Hazards, Travel Information/Convenience, and Fast/Slow Moving Vehicles. The SWS has 64 possible messages (60 currently allocated), all of which can be displayed on your Vector 940.

The Beltronics V940 Vector is one of the best Radar Detectors I've ever purchased.
Bruno J. Bischoff
Yes, their are x and k band false alarms (x and k are usually burglar alarms), but the Ka warning has been right on, and that is what I paid for.
Edward G. Pollard
It was definitely a great buy and i recommend it to anyone wanting a well priced detector that actually does its jobs.

I had used Escort radar detectors exclusively for 15 years and thought they were the best detectors for the price. Earlier this year, however, I used an Escort 8500 X50 for a lengthy driving trip and found it just barely adequate.

I had a 5K mile driving trip to take a few weeks ago so I took a chance on this unit. I'm so glad I did. What a great product! The performance of this unit BLOWS the Escort 8500 X50 out of the water. I mean blows it right out of the water. I got warnings with this unit WAY before I needed them, whereas I got them just in time with the 8500. Perhaps more importantly, I got virtually no false warnings with this unit whereas I got them ALL THE TIME with the Escort unit. The Escort unit had me braking every 3 miles for what turned out to be nothing almost every time. Again when it counted--when it was real police--the Escort only warned me a split second or two before I would have been nabbed.

I am so seriously impressed with the advance warning range of this unit, the incredibly low false warning ratio, and the bargain price of the unit. It delivers WAY more than the Escort 8500 X50 for half the price! It is one of the most cleat cut comparisons I have ever experienced; no fine line here. I am surprised that Escort gets away with delivering such mediocre results for your detector buying dollar.

I found out about this unit by conducting extensive internet research and I'm happy to say the tests found on the internet were accurate. The only way to step up to a higher level of performance will be to buy the Valentine unit for 4-5 times the price of this unit. If you are like me then you can't afford the Valentine so you are looking for other options. I respectfully argue that this is the best value (performance for price ratio) in all non-Valentine units.

I've had my Beltronics Vector 940 for about two weeks. This is my first radar detector, and it seems to be getting the job done, and well at that. I've done a lot of research on radar detectors, and have been able to weed out the sub-par brands and models. I'd heard nothing but good things about Bel, Whistler, and Escort detectors, and only the former two had products in my price range (sub-two hundred).

I'd actually put off buying a radar detector for a few months, to save for a few other things on my car, and after Whistler's Pro-78 (Whistler PRO-78 Laser-Radar Detector with Real Voice Alerts, POP Mode Detection, INTELLICORD ready) went out of production--which had been my pick--I saw it's update model and it had less than desirable reviews. Finally, about a month ago, I decided on finally getting a detector, and had my eyes set on Bel's Vector series. It was between the V995, V955, and V940. Long story short, I saw no real reason in going for the more than two hundred dollar V995, and since the V940 was on Amazon for only a hundred around Black Friday/Cyber Monday Weekend, there was no real reason to spend the extra fifty dollars on the V955.

To give you an idea of the environment my V940 inhabits; I drive a four-door Cutlass with non-metallic, black window tinting (front sides, and all rear windows; nothing on the windshield but factory AS1). I also mount my detector low on the windshield. At first I mounted it above my rear-view mirror, but have since moved it lower to increase the potential of it detecting LIDAR/laser signals. I have my V940 about four to five inches directly above the dash on the windshield.

First: the Amazon picture of the V940 is not correct. The unit that I received looks identical to the V955. This is why I'm reviewing so quickly.
Second: I thought that the mounting bracket was so small that a mistake had been made. But the mounting method is very clever, adjustable and easy to perform. It can be mounted in even a sweeping windshield. The suction cups have exceptional grip to them. Well done.
Third: Round trip on the LIE and zero false alarms.
Forth: The instructions recommend using in the highway mode, which I did. Therefore why would any of the more expensive and expansive Bels be necessary.
Fifth: The only negative so far. The top of the unit is gray. Black would have been preferable and less reflective. I found some cross-stitch material at Michael's, traced an outline of the gray area, cut out 5 holes, glued it onto the Bel, and now I have no more complaints.

This is the first detector I've owned. Did lots of research and read lots of reviews, but didn't want to spend more than about $150. I was skeptical of whether a detector could consistently give me adequate warning time, but this one seemed to do just that. This is great for those little towns trying to boost revenue with speed traps. Best thing about this one is its powered by a standard RJ-11 phone connection. This means you can easily hardwire it to an ignition controlled fuse in the fusebox. Mine is mounted low on the windshield and you can only see about 2 inches of power cable before it goes down behind the dash. Comes on when my truck comes on, goes off when truck does. Would definately buy this one again.

UPDATE: Here it is 4 years later and this thing is still going strong, haven't had one problem with it. Still great warning time. If and when this thing ever goes out I'll buy another one. This thing is proof that you don't have to spend $400 to get a good detector.
