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.
No
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

great detector!

March 7, 2009

Great piece of work by whistler. It does go off a lot in the city but in city mode its not too annoying, but a $200 radar detector does the same thing since automatic door openers run on X and K-band signals. I have not gotten a single ticket. Overall great product would recommend to anybody even over a 200 or 300 dollar one.

Garbage

August 11, 2008

I just got this yesterday. It goes off all around the city.

Not to mention... today.. the second day I have owned it, I was driving a little over the speed and it failed to even go off! Absolutely no warning at all. Got a speeding ticket.

This thing is garbage. Total waste of money.
