Buy Radar Detectors in Australia

Please note that the legal use of radar detectors may be restricted in your location. Always check local laws prior to purchasing a radar or laser device.

There are many types of radar detectors and laser devices available and they take many forms e.g.

Portable – windscreen or sunvisor mounted – Whistler, Bel, Escort, Valentine 1

Portable - w/ GPS – Whistler Pro78 GXi, Escort Passport Max, Escort 9500ixI.

Integrated – refers to a fully installed radar detection system for your vehicle with no tell-tale suction cups on the windscreen – Stinger VIP, Stinger Card, Bel XR-C Plus. Integrated units also feature stealth technology i.e. they are undetectable electronically.

Stealth Technology – these portable and integrated have built in features which can shield the device from electronic detection – Portable devices such as Bel Magnum & Escort Redline Pro A International series plus integrated units such as all Stinger models plus the Bel XR-C Plus feature stealth technology.

Laser Defence – laser aids that are capable of alerting and protecting you from unwanted laser attacks. Laser defence systems are not portable and require installation into your vehicle – Laser Interceptor

 

PORTABLE:

portablePortable radar detector units are selected for a wide range of general speed detection applications. A good quality portable radar detector is a good fit for many people. These units can detect police radar signals and alert to a possible threat. Most portables units also feature safety warning signal detection which can alert a driver to another potential road hazards such as road works, accident black spots, emergency services vehicles and some farm machinery. A quality radar detector will also alert a driver to the presence of a laser signal. In some cases the alert provided can be quite effective on forward facing roadside laser cameras. However, when it comes to handheld laser guns, only a minimal or no warning may be given, also rear facing laser speed cameras are very difficult to detect and it is unlikely that a portable radar detector will be effective in alerting a driver to its presence.

 

 

 

PORTABLE with GPS:

potable with gps

Some radar detectors have an in built GPS system allowing a user to isolate false alert locations as well as be made aware they are approaching a fixed point of interest such as a red light camera, fixed speed camera, a combination redlight speed camera. These devices contain a database which requires periodic updates to ensure accuracy.

 









INTEGRATED:

integrated

An integrated or built in radar detector operates in the same way as a portable unit. Integrated units generally require expert installation of their component parts to ensure that they are discreet and correctly fitted. Integrated units generally feature the key attributes of Radar detection, GPS Fixed known camera locations, isolation of false alerts plus when the option of laser defence is selected and installed, these systems may also provide a measure of defence from laser threats. Sophisticated integrated systems also feature a logbook function as well as being able to review known and unknown contact with radar and laser threats. As these systems feature GPS, periodic downloads are necessary to ensure point of interest accuracy. Integrated systems are available with or without stealth technology. We would recommend stealth technology selection at all times.

STEALTH TECHNOLOGY: This design method minimises or eliminates local oscillator RF leakage from the radar detector. Stealth is achieved in Stinger models by antenna design (now updated with an MPHD antenna). Stealth units are undetectable by radar detector detectors used by some traffic authorities outside WA.

FALSE ALERTS: False alerts occur when a radar detector senses a signal from a source other than those used by law enforcement officials. These false sources may emanate from automatic door openers at shopping centres and service stations using X or K band radar frequencies. To help eliminate false alerts all bands other than K and Ka band should be turned off or disabled as these are the only bands used throughout Australia. Limited false alerts can be detected by laser sensors. These are extremely rare, thus caution should be exercised before disregarding any warning alert. It is possible that a false laser alert can be caused by sunlight from sunlight reflecting from a polished road surface or other highly reflective surfaces. In some instances, infra-red security cameras can also interfere with laser detection devices.

LASER DEFENCE: Laser defence devices have been available for several years. Over that time, both the technology utilised to detect speed has improved as has the technology to detect and neutralise those devices. The systems for use in WA should be carefully chosen as there are important considerations to bear in mind when selecting your configuration. See here for further information on how laser defence works - Laser Defence – How it works

Speed Detection in WA: The speed detection methods deployed in WA are predominantly mobile cameras which may be installed in either a van or SUV, externally located on the roadside and handheld laser guns which may or may not utilise built in camera technology as well. There is already a fixed camera position located on the Mitchell Freeway north bound - there are plans to locate additional fixed cameras at Como, Stirling, Success and Willetton in the near future. These fixed camera locations will use a PoliScan speed camera the same as used in vans and on roadsides. These locations will not necessarily contain a camera as cameras will be rotated through these locations at police discretion. Further information relating to speed detection can be found here.

 

poliscan

Laser speed measuring technology is in widespread use in WA especially in the Perth Metropolitan area as well as major urban locations in WA. These are Vitronics PoliScan speed cameras and arrange of LTI Ultralyte 20/20 and LTI 20/20 Trucam handheld/tripod mounted devices. All laser speed detection equipment as used by law enforcement must be used from a stationary position. Radar speed detection equipment can and is used by law enforcement from either moving or stationary positions.
