Detection

Number of Detected Bands
This number indicates the number of bands the radar/laser detector protects against. The term band includes different radars, lasers, and safety signals, among others. The higher the number, the greater the protection.
Multi-band
X Band
X Band is a frequency used for detecting speed from a police radar.
K Band
K Band is the most popular radar frequency band that is used today. It is able to detect speeds from a stand still location, or from a moving vehicle
Ka Band
Ka Band operates within the frequencies 26.5-40 GHz. This is the newest introduced radar band and it is becoming more and more popular. It rarely has a false alert.
Ku Band
Ku band ranges from 12-18 GHz when used in radar applications.
Laser
This feature specifies if the unit will detect lasers.
Yes
VG-2 Immunity
The VG-2 detects radar detectors. Radar detectors with VG-2 immunity will be immune to the VG-2 radar and alert the driver when they are under such surveillance.
Pop Alert
Some radar guns operate in a POP mode so they can get a speed reading of a target vehicle extremely fast, resulting in most radar detectors not being able to consistently signal an alert. There are very few radar guns in service in the U.S. capable of POP mode operation. If your radar detector is Pop Alert capable, you may notice an increase in Ka-band false alerts when POP mode radar detection is switched on.
No

I currently own two of this exact model. It is the best I've see for the money. It detects signal as far as my friends valentine one that cost three times as much.

Works well.

January 30, 2012

I have purchased 3 of these, first one for my BMW - worked well and I got tired of moving it to my other car, so I bought another. I then bought one for my son in his Miata. I always leave it set on highway and turn the volume way down. My wife is a bit irritated by the false alarms, but I am so used to my route that if it ever goes off where it is normally quiet... there is someone there. We have done a few large trips, one on a holiday weekend and it helped me avoid a few tickets while doing some fairly high speed cruises. Not a ticket yet in about 2 years of frisky driving. A good purchase and great price for Sonic. Thanks!

Outstanding Value!

July 10, 2008

I've had this detector for almost one year to date, and it has saved me numerous times. It allows plenty of time to adjust speed accordingly. The instructions clearly define programming and mounting solutions and the unit is very easy to hear and read with its adjustable volume and its DIM feature

August 19, 2011

After reading other reviews I decided to go with this product. I am very pleased with the range (I have picked up radar almost a mile in some cases). It seems to pick up signals other than radar in the highway mode but I'd rather it pick up more than less. Great buy for the price.
