Portable Detectors Come in a Wide Range of Quality
A portable radar detector is good for someone who drives several vehicles or may not have the budget for a custom-installed unit. If you decide to buy a portable unit, it is important to know that there are many differences between a cheap unit and a high-quality model. The inexpensive ones are more of a nuisance than anything else because they false a lot. These false readings will come from alarm systems in buildings and devices the government uses to monitor traffic speed. We see many of these units in the gloveboxes of vehicles because the drivers got tired of them going off for no reason. The range of the cheaper units is also poor, so even when they detect police radar, it may be too late to help you avoid a ticket.
The solution is to keep your money in the bank until you can afford a high-quality portable detector such as those sold by California Car Sounds.
Our units use sophisticated filtering so they can tell the difference between a false alarm and real radar. The vast majority of the time, when the alarm goes off, you do need to check your speed. The good units also have much better sensitivity, so you will have more time to check your speed in the event you run into a radar trap.
Custom-installed Detectors are the Best Defense
The best defense you can get against laser and radar-based speed detection devices is a custom-installed unit. They take protection to the next level. Here is how it works. In the front of your vehicle, we strategically place laser shifters that can pick up on when laser (or LIDAR) has been shot at the vehicle. They instantly fire back powerful beams of light at the laser gun, not letting it get a reading on you. Now, you have precious seconds to slow down and avoid a ticket. Since this type of speed detection is light-based and not radio-wave-based, your detector only goes off if your particular vehicle has been targeted. If you owned a portable detector, all it does is confirm you are about to get a ticket.
For the ultimate in defense, we can also add rear laser shifters to your car, truck or SUV. While the vast majority of the time, laser is shot at the front of a vehicle, in the instance you are targeted from the rear, you are covered.
