Need Help choosing the right radar detector for your specific needs? We have compiled a list of the most popular radar detectors along with some of the most popular features to help you choose.
If you ask our opinion, we feel that the best radar detector on the market is between the Escort 8500 x50 Black, Beltronics PRO-300, Beltronics PRO-500, Escort 9500ix, Escort Redline and the Escort Passport Max. With a starting point of $300 for most of these high end detectors they may be out of the range for many shoppers.  We rank these radar detectors on top because they offer the longest ranges, all include POP protection and they are firmware upgradeable so they will not become obsolete anytime soon. 
If you live in an area where radar detectors are illegal (Virginia, Washington DC & some countries including parts of Canada) and you can afford $499.95 then the Escort Redline would be the best radar detector for you.  In areas where detectors are illegal enforcement uses RDD's (Radar Detector Detectors) to find vehicles using radar detectors.  The Escort Redline is immune to all RDD technologies so they can not detect that you have a radar detector in your vehicle. 

When looking for a new radar detector we suggest that you choose a unit with Long Range, POP Mode Protection and if you can afford it a unit which is Firmware Upgradeable..  POP Mode is a normal K or Ka band radar signal which travels from the radar gun to a target and back in less than a 1/10th of a second. Most cheap radar detectors can not see this signal because it is just too fast for the radar detector to see it. This technology is growing and many of the newer models offer protection for this new technology. Firmware Upgradeable has only been available on some of the more expensive units but recently Whistler incorporated this feature on the XTR-690SE, XTR-695SE & Pro-78SE models.  This is nice to have because engineers are always trying to increase performance and having an upgradeable unit gives you the option to send the unit back to the factory to get updated firmware when improvements come out for a small fee.
