Who needs an undetectable radar detector in Canada?
Use of a radar detector is prohibited in the following Canadian provinces: Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, Yukon, and NWT.
But don't worry!
If you live in a province listed above, or plan to travel through the eastern provinces, you will need an undetectable radar detector, designed to be stealth and invisible to police Spectre radar-detector-detectors (RDD). Total Shield is a patented technology by Beltronics and Escort Radar, eliminating any leakage signal from radar receivers. Radenso has also released its own version so ultra-low leakage stealth detectors.
Overview, Comparison, and Reviews on Undetectable Radar Detectors
Escort 9500ci INTL is the best installed radar system we have tested for Canadians, especially if you live in province of Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada. Not only is the 9500ci undetectable to any RDD, it's also very well concealed in the front grill. 9500ci INTL also features GPS Truelock with AutoLearn, as well as MultaRadar (MRCD) detection. Highly recommended if budget allows.
Beltronics STiR Plus is no longer produced and has been discontinued.
If photo radar isn't a big concern for you, we highly recommend the high performance Radenso Pro SE model. Using the low-leakage Genevo S antenna, not only does the RPSE detector picks up radar long distance away, it is also the world's smallest radar detector, making them easier to conceal.
Escort Redline has been the best portable (windshield mounted) radar detector we recommend for drivers in eastern Canada. Redline features long range performance, band-segmentation settings improving Ka-band response time, and Total-Shield stealth technology. As the original Redline is no longer being produced, KMPH continues to offer the International version Redline, which also supports MultaRadar (MRCD) photo radar.
Remember to add a Sun Visor Holder with a Straight Cord to conceal your radar detector.
Beltronics STi Magnum and North American Redline are no longer being produced and have since been discontinued.
Quebec (and coming soon to Ontario) MRCD Photo Radar:
MultaRadar (known as MRCD) is currently used in Edmonton Alberta, many cities in Quebec (Quebec, Montreal, Gatineau, etc), and coming soon to Ontario. Escort Redline INTL and Escort 9500ci INTL have been tested and proven to detect these mobile photo radar systems as well as conventional moving K/Ka bands. They are also both undetectable.
