Got a Lead Foot? Check out these Radar Detectors

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Accessories, Transportation

Escort Max 360 radar detector

No one likes being pulled over – and most people are familiar with that sensation of dread when they pass a speed trap while hammering a little too much throttle into the engine. However, there are ways to watch out for speed traps and related issues on the road, especially with a top radar detector.

The best radar detectors today give you information that you can use on the road, track a variety of detection devices, and let you know what to watch for. Whether you are looking for a professional device to help with your trucking or a unit for your car, let us introduce you to some of the top options on the market.

Escort Max360 - $650

Escort is a leading name in radar detectors, and for good reason. Not only will the company provide payment for your first ticket while using the device, but this model comes with the latest tech to help identify a variety of radar signals on the go. It's also filled with learning technology to help decrease false positive, and includes an iPhone app with GPS capabilities to help you find the best route for your travels. This is one detector that is worth the price, especially for professionals who will use it frequently.

Valentine One radar detector

Valentine One - $399

If you want a more casual detector for your daily trips, then this Valentine model is worth looking at. It's more affordable than the Escort model, and includes monitoring across the four commonly used radar signals and traffic lasers so that you don't miss out on any type of monitoring. It also includes some very handy customization options to help increase accuracy as you need it. The device itself has very limited readouts, so we suggest that you use the phone adapter to help give you app capabilities and show information on a better screen.
