Radar Detectors: VEIL increases all radar detector performance!

Currently, the best overal performing* radar detectors (top price category) are:

$300+ Radar Detector Group:

  • BEL RX65 Pro< ($329) & Vector 995 ($299)

  • Escort 8500 X50 Red/Blue Display ($299/$339)

  • Valentine 1 ($399)

Each of these top performing radar detectors provide stellar RADAR sensitivity and rejection of false radar alerts. Although each provide very good sensitivity to police laser, the Valentine V1 radar detector is the most adept by a wide margin.

Both Beltronics and Escort models are very good laser detectors as well (an edge goes to the Escort 8500 X50) and each Bel and Escort model can detect POP RADAR (67ms variety) - a lethal form of police radar that occurs in bursts of 16-67ms, too short a duration for those radar detectors that are not specifically built to detect it.

The latest Valentine 1's offer superior POP RADAR detection capability and are are unique in being able to occasionally (~10%) sniff out the MPH K-35 hand-held K gun when its POP mode operated at a blistering 16ms!

Valentine 1's also distinguish themselves as the only ones in the top group to be able to spot Laser Atlanta's stealth mode police laser.

VR's newest revision of their radar detector includes "Euro" mode that can be enabled to perform especially well with Gatso/Multanova police RADAR - popular throughout europe, this low-powered RADAR waveform is most difficult for a conventional detector ` to pick-up.

Any of these top detectors would make a fine addition to your windshield.
