Questions & Answers
In the box, what will you find?
There is a standard 12vdc round connector at the other end of the cord and the power cord with cig lighter plug - this is the basic detector. It was about 7ft. long, and there was a small manual with it. A good tool for detecting police radars and rejecting false alarms. I was very pleased with the value for my
It has Bluetooth to connect with the iRadar app on the phone, right?
There is a way to connect the app to iRadar.
How much does the Cobra rad 450 cover and has a UV ?
You are right. Due to the fact that radar consists of radio waves that bounce around the environment, all radar detectors pick up the detection of radar in 360 degrees (just as your radio detects stations in 360° is like your radar detector). These radar sources are indicated by arrows on the detectors that have "360" in their names. In the RAD 450, there are no arrows pointing in any direction. It is true that the RAD 450 has an IVT filter. In this way, many radar-based vehicle safety systems are removed.

I love it Read the review and I will explain why it has a one-star rating
I can say with 100% certainty that this radar/laser detector works correctly. This device works at great distances and has a very high degree of accuracy. There are those who have given it 1 stars because it didn't detect police officers. There are police officers who do not turn on their radars for this reason. It takes highly trained officers to look at a car and determine its average speed in an instant. The officer will not be able to detect it if he does not have his radar on. Any radar detector that is not turned on will be unable to detect it. Because of this, the system will not beep when the cop is Having grown up in a family of local police and troops, and having tested the equipment on various speed detecting equipment and various bands, I was well qualified to test the equipment. As soon as the police car detector scanned me I had time to slow down after I found every single one of them with the device. It can carry out a scanning operation just fine with a clear view of the back as long as the rear is visible. Laser detectors are sometimes used by cops to measure speed. But the vehicle MUST be parked and not moving for it to be able to do that. laser beam is so small and narrow that it must hit the car directly to register a speed figure, which makes it 80 percent more accurate than other speed sensors. In order to be most effective, this detector should be mounted at the very bottom center of your windshield. It should be in the bottom center because most speed trap lasers are placed low to the ground for best accuracy, which means the laser is pointed at the hood or front In the center bottom, the device has a better chance of warning you sooner, since it will do so about 90 percent more often. When police use radars, there is a wide dispersion of radio waves, making it very easy for the radar detector to detect them. The amazing feature of this detector is that it has a great system to determine if it's a police officer or just another door in the vicinity. So far, I haven't had a false reading in town unless I set the sensitivity to the highest level. I will now take a look at those who report getting The truth is, you are The first thing you need to be aware of is The second car and simi truck are some of the culprits. Can you explain? Most new cars and almost all trucks have radar systems that allow them to detect nearby cars and warn you when it is okay to merge over or when you are For radar in trucks and cars, a 24 GHz frequency K band is generally used. The 75-hertz band. You can almost always set it off when you pass a railroad crossing. The conductor of a train blows the horn and lowers the arms on the tracks if he detects cars on the rail roads. Radars are used to find cars. While signals vary by state, in South Carolina about 98% of railroads use X band. I hope this review was helpful, sorry it was long. I just wanted to make sure everyone understood what X band was about!.

It is my first radar detector, and I intend to use it only for some time. I bought it in May of My vehicle is an FJ Cruiser, and I only drive over 10 miles per hour on highways, interstates, and back roads in places like Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida.
GOOD I take it with me when I travel as well The range is as follows My alerts have saved me from not seeing cops behind hills and whatnot while still having access to reading other drivers' reactions near hills, and has saved me more than one occasion from missing cops and whatnot. It's set to the highest sensitivity and I only get a few alerts at a time Once I have driven with it for a while, I can determine what are real signals and which are false signals based on the strength and type of signal it receives. Radar detectors do not sense other signals from cars, such as Blind Spot signals, nor do they give out any signals to police about the use of one. The value/dependability of the work This device alerted me almost immediately and allowed plenty of time to determine whether it was false and slow down accordingly. I'm sure I would have been stopped at least 10 times by cops sitting in medians and behind hills saving them time and money. Besides getting a dash cam, about which I have also written a review (Garmin 55), this was one of the best $120 I spent on an accessory for driving. The usability of the product Every time I go through unfamiliar roads or a trip that takes me longer than 20 minutes, I use it. been sitting in the sun with temperatures ranging from 110 to 0 degrees since I bought it, and it starts up every time I turn it on and shuts off if a threshold is crossed where the truck's battery voltage drops below some level. When a signal is detected, the screen turns into a dimmed mode after a few minutes. *Broadly, wiring and mounting It took me about a year to get the hard-wiring kit and add-on In addition, there is a custom switch that allows me to turn the detector on with one push of the switch rather than having to reach for the switch on the detector and turn it. Besides velcroing it to the top of the dashboard, I had to remove my suction cups in the heat, I could see it better on top of the instruments, and I had fewer reasons for the police to pull me over since I didn't use our suction cups. Since I hardwired a switch, volume has always been at the same position. There is a lot of noise In my experience, the sounds of each band are pretty distinct and can be remembered after using them for a while. The laser feature was introduced to me only once while driving on a Florida highway. It does seem like a retro laser and I did not hear it again since then. This is bad As far as negatives go, I truly cannot think of anything other than the fact that it uses a 12 volt dvd player style power cable instead of a more common USB or mini usb. There is a micro usb connection on the side of this device, which I only discovered yesterday and have not yet figured out why it might require a computer connection. I like this radar detector in general. Since its sensitivity is just right and it can be adjusted, I have benefited from it plenty of times and at least tenfold by the amount of times I may have gotten into trouble without it. When you know what you're doing, this lamp is really easy to wire and mount. Radar detectors are a great way to detect surveillance.

The cost to purchase this junk is $49, so you'll have to pay for it
An APP subscription of 99 dollars per year is required for it to function! When I received my radar detector before my 1000 miles trip, I had a happy moment, then the nightmare started. After I pair this piece of junk with the Bluetooth in my car, I am not able to finish pairing, therefore it will not work. In the end, the ONLY REASON for it was I would need to get an APP to synchronize with my iPhone and this piece of junk at a It costs $4. 99 a year or 99 cents a month. You can have it for just $99 The worst bait and switch is when you buy a product that is supposed to work certain way or his piece of junk in the first place was supposed to work. I returned this piece of junk and purchased a new radar detector from a different company for about the same price, but with a longer detecting range, detecting more frequencies with almost zero false alarms, and most importantly, no one is trying to rip I picked up a Uniden DFR7 radar detector recently. Do your research before you buy, but if you are convinced you will like this piece of junk, be prepared to pay an additional You can pay $4 per year or $999 per year. We will charge you 99 dollars per month if you use our services! I would advise you to stay away from it.
