The reason for this is because not all cops have their radars on. Cops are highly trained to be able to look at a car and determine an average speed. If the officer does not have his radars on it WILL NOT detect it. It’s impossible for any radar detectors to detect one that isn’t turned on. Therefore it will not beep saying cop ahead. I come from a family of town cops and state troopers and tested the equipment on various speed detecting equipment and various bands. The device found every single one of them before the cop cars detector scanned me giving me time to slow Down. The rear scanner on the device works just as good AS LONG AS it has a clear view to the back. For laser detectors that cops sometimes use they HAVE to be parked and not moving for it to get your speed. The reason is because the laser beam is very small and narrow and must hit the car directly for it to register a speed making it 80% more accurate. This detector should be mounted in the very center bottom of your windshield for best use. The reason for it to be placed in the bottom center is most speed trap lasers are lower to the ground for best accuracy meaning the laser is pointed at the hood/front bumper of your car. Having the device in the center bottom gives it about 90% more chance of warning you sooner. With radars the police use it’s a large dispursment of radio waves making it very easy for the radar detector to find.
The amazing thing about this detector is the fact it has a great system to determine if it’s a cop or just a door near by. I have so far never had a false reading in town unless I had the sensitivity on high.
Finally, those who say they get false highway readings. Your not. 1st off there are hidden speed cameras. 2nd Cars and simitrucks can set it off. Why? Well, that is because most new cars and almost all simitrucks have radar systems that help them detect nearby cars to alert you when not to merge over or if your swerving. These radar systems in the trucks and cars generally use a K band signal at 24.75hertz.
Passing a railroad crossing can almost always set it off. Rail roads have radars to detect cars to send information to the trains conductor to know he needs to blow the horn and lower the arms on the tracks. The signal is different state to state but in South Carolina about 98% of railways use X band.
I hope this review helps sorry it was long just wanted to properly explain the detector to everyone!!!
This unit is awesome! I used it for a couple of days in a small town that has lots of shops with security alarms and several construction areas with radar units that flash your speed to let you know what your speed is and it does great. The shops are almost always on the X band and filters it, alerts you, and then slowly disappears. The radar units in the construction area are using K/Ka band and it detects them both at a very reasonable distance (between .5 and .75) even in heavy traffic.
I get on the highway for my trip and within an hour the RAD450 detected a Ka band radar being used. It started with the single block and worked it's way up to 5 blocks over the course of about a mile. Sure enough, a state trooped was running radar heading East bound while i was traveling West. In total, i passed 7 State Trooper over the course of 12 hours and each time it picked them up with plenty of time to slow down and get closer to the speed limit. VERY, VERY please with this unit and the accuracy it has so far demonstrated. I would HIGHLY recommend this unit to anyone in the market for a new radar detector.
The only downside to this unit is the mounting. I don't like the multiple suction cup mounting that generally comes with most radar detectors. I would like to find a large single suction cup that mounts to the windshield and is easily detached by flipping a lever but i can't seem to find one for this particular unit.

Pour les autres flashant par l’arrière, les mobiles, les feux tricolores et de chantier, il n’en détecte aucun.
Know what you're buying - This DOESN'T work well in big cities, I basically keep it turned off or in Mute/City mode in Edmonton because no cops use these bands really. Its great for highway driving and I feel confident knowing I'm not ripping through a speed trap!
Still Happy with it! just wish it was louder.
As far as i used it i don't get many false alarms, especially if i drive outside of the city's.
The menu is easy to use and to understand.
I have not yet detected an radar nor did saw one, i will see when i do how good it is.
I will hardwire it to my fusebox, if you want to do that to you will need and extra cable because the original cable is not that long. You either add another cable to the original one after you cut it or you buy a new long one.
