Outstanding performance, the latest in technology, and remarkable flexibility are all part of these high-end detectors from BEL. The Vector series includes more driver-selectable features than BEL's Express series. You can upgrade the software to adapt to advancements in police radar technology. These detectors have increased sensitivity and an AutoScan mode to minimize false alerts.

The Vector 985 gives you radar and 360-degree laser detection, Safety Warning System (SWS) alerts, and Shadow Technology II (protection from radar detector detectors). Plus, it has extended range, selectable tone or voice SWS warnings, 64 digital voice messages, and a tech mode for digital readout of signal strength.

In addition, this model features BEL's AccuSweep technology for pinpoint detection of narrow radar bands. The selectable on/off settings for X band, K band, and Super Wideband Ka band frequencies allow you to eliminate extraneous signals. Keep an eye on your car's voltage level with the voltage meter mode. And for those who just need to know, the tech mode identifies the actual radar frequency the police are using.
