Guide to Buying a Remote Radar Laser Detector

Posted by on

What is a remote / installed radar laser system?


There are two types of radar detectors of radar detectors - windshield mounted vs. remotely mounted. Windshield or dash mounted radar detectors are usually referred to as portable units, while remote systems are custom installed.

There are several benefits of having a remotely installed radar detector:

  • Clean and uncluttered dash / windshield with hidden remote radar antenna. Controllers and displays have integrated look and feel.
  • Most remote radar systems are high-performance radar detectors
  • remote radar antenna are concealed for provinces that do not allow radar detectors.

Update: Best of Year 2019

Many customers had previous experience with Beltronics STiR Plus and Escort 9500Ci. They had both been discontinued years ago, and no longer provide adequate detection, radar filter, and laser defence today.

There had been a major updates in the custom-installed market throughout the last 2 years. It is partly due to radar detector manufacturers addressing false alarm filtering against vehicle safety sensors, as well as the growing threat of European bands such as MultaRadar.

    New Remote Radar Detector

    NetRadar DSP offers the best radar laser protection money can buy. Performance is top-notch utilizing the same DSP platform offering extreme radar performance. NetRadar must be integrated with AL Priority laser jammer.

    NetRadar DSP 360 gets you front and rear dual antenna for directional arrow via Bluetooth ALPConnect app.

    Radenso RC-M is the top stand-alone remote installed radar detector. I prefer it over Escort MaxCi. It's recommended to bundle with ALP laser defence. 

    Requirement of Stealth from Spectre RDD

    Net Radar DSP has been tested and proven to be functionally stealth and undetectable. Spectre Elite RDD placed inside another vehicle will not be able to detect your installed remote radar system.

    MultaRadar (MRCD) Detection

    MultaRadar (MRCD) is a form of photo radar now widely used in many cities in Alberta and Quebec. NetRadar DSP (with AL Priority) and Radenso RC-M both support MRCD used in Canada, specifically Alberta and Quebec.

    What is Max Ci / Max Ci 360?

    The first release of Escort Radar's MaxCi (US version) fails to address new speed enforcement technology such as DragonEye LIDAR and MultaRadar which are now heavily used by police speed enforcements in Canada.

    There is no substitute for AL Priority when it comes to laser defence. Escort Radar's Shifter Max offers mediocre blocking performance.
