How do experts evaluate radar detectors?
Different reviewers have different perspectives, and each reviewer evaluates radar detectors differently. A few examples:
Of course, each reviewer has their own opinions about the importance of different features.
Some are interested in learning about every feature of every detector, some are just interested in maximum detection range. Some have strong preferences for particular detectors, some have a more open mind about new products and new features.
So who should you trust?
Remember, reviewers are just people - each reviewer has a different perspective. And of course, no reviewer is perfect. So don't take any one review as the final word. Do your research, and get a balanced opinion by seeing what all the reviewers have to say, and decide for yourself.
THE PASSPORT 9500IX WINS!
BEST RADAR DETECTOR FOR AVOIDING RED LIGHT TICKETS
Why it's best: Remember how the helpful people at the AAA office made up a vacation TripTik for your mom and dad and highlighted areas of known police presence? (Like all of the state of Georgia.) Fast forward to the 21st century. Now the Escort Passport 9500ix includes an updatable database of known photo radar sites and red light cameras and an embedded GPS receiver that warns as you're approaching a danger zone.
THE PASSPORT 9500CI WINS!
BEST INSTALLED RADAR DETECTOR AND LASER JAMMER
Why it's best: The Passport 9500ci includes every available advanced feature and is the only unit to incorporate the utility of GPS to identify false alarms and confirmed threats. The 9500ci uses a laser shifting technology to jam laser guns aimed at your vehicle. Increasingly, speeding tickets now come from laser speed guns, not radar.
