Brightness Control
If the brightness of the unit can be conveniently adjusted and controlled, it will be listed here.
Turn-on/off Select Bands
Many radar detectors can detect many different bands of signal. This feature designates if the user can select what bands he or she has on or off.
Unit Mounting
Different radar detector are attached to the vehicle in different ways. The most common is for it to be suction-cupped to the windshield. This allows the unit to be moved from one vehicle to another with ease. Another mounting option is called remote-mounting. A remote mount unit is directly installed into your vehicle.

Other ways to mount your radar detector include Velcro and adhesive.

Suction cups
Power Source
The power source is the method in which the unit receives power. Some units will be powered by batteries, while others will need to be plugged in to an AC or DC power source.
12V DC Car Adapter
Direct Power Accessory
If there is an optional accessory to the unit that will provide power, it will be listed here.
Travel Case Included

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.
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.
This feature specifies if the unit will detect lasers.
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.

It overall is nice it is loud enough to where you can hear it over your music. It is somewhat accurate, but sometimes misses police cars. I have had it for 2 months and it is yet to pick up an unmarked car. Overall I am happy with this product but I would get a better one.

This detector works well on the interstate but when it comes to city driving it gives off alot of false alarms, even when in city mode. For the price it gets the job done its just not the best.
