Radar Detectors and Laser Jammers are your best line of defense against speeding tickets (other than driving the speed limit, of course!). Toy Motorsports sells a wide range of radar detector and laser jammer solutions, for all types of vehicles, and all types of budgets. Both radar and laser speed detection technologies are currently in use by law enforcement in the United States, and it’s important to understand the difference between these technologies and the equipment available for detecting/jamming them when choosing a radar detector and/or laser jammer. Here is some information regarding radar detectors:
What Are Radar Detectors?
Radar is the most commonly used speed detection method used by law enforcement. Police Radar guns function by emitting electromagnetic radio waves to measure a vehicle’s speed through monitoring the “doppler shift” in the radar signal as it is reflected off of a vehicle and back to the radar gun. Because Radar guns must publicly broadcast a radio signal to determine a vehicle’s speed, radar detectors are able to detect the use of radar guns, as long as the guns are turned on and actively emitting radio signals. Today the majority of police vehicles are equipped with radar guns, as it allows law enforcement officers to determine a vehicle’s speed when they are parked, or when the vehicle is moving. Equipping your vehicle with a radar detector is a safe and legal method (in most states and in all New England states) of detecting the presence of radar signals, which are often indicative of a speed trap or speed determining police cruiser ahead.
Types of Radar Detectors
Remote Mounted Radar Detectors:
Remote Mounted Radar Detectors are the ultimate stealth and factory-looking solution to radar detectors. Remote Radar systems operate through radar detecting antennas which are hidden behind the front and rear bumpers, out of sight of other drivers, police officers, or potential thieves. Remote Radar displays are professionally installed in your vehicle to offer a clean, factory-like integration of your radar system. Toy Motorsports offers remote mounted radar systems from K40, Escort, Beltronics, and more. A Remote Mounted Radar detection system is the perfect addition (especially when coupled with an optional laser jamming system) for the motorsport enthusiast that demands the best performance with factory-like integration in their vehicle.
Windshield Mounted Portable Radar Detectors:
The most inexpensive option in radar detectors are windshield mounted units. Windshield mounted radar detectors offer portable solutions which are powered through cigarette-lighter power adapters – or which can be hardwired into your vehicle’s electrical system by a Toy Motorsports electronic installation technician. Toy Motorsports offers windshield mounted units from Escort, Beltronics, K40, Whistler, and more.
