You can buy one of those toy radar detectors or find one of those signs that tell you how fast you are going. They are usually around school zones and they flash your speed. Your detector should beep when you turn it on to tell you everything is OK too.

Won't actually detect anything


does it work when near a walgreens or cvs and detect a K band? if it is no longer picking up any of the false alerts, return it if you can or send it in to beltronics

Explain how it works works


As a radar detector, it receives signals from everywhere...Hospitals, automatic door openers, and microwaves and in most cases these are filtered to provide you a detection of a police speed enforcement radar. These particular detectors also detect laser light. In all cases, it is merely a receiver of a signal sent. This is why a number of people have positioned their defense of use of a radar detector as simply receiving a signal under the freedom of speech aspect of the Bill of rights. The actual function is a detection of a particular light wave and a triggering to a sound or light alert.

I have a brand new whistler laser radar detector , i received as a gift quite a few years ago. its never been used, is it worth anything?


that model was last sold before 1999. It still detects all the same radar but it will not detect POP radar. For more info on POP radar check out Whistler's radar FAQ page at www.whistlergroup.com

You can trade it in on a newer model by contacting whistler at info@whistlergroup.com

Is the Whistler 1430 detected a police radar signals now?


Yes, that model still detects what is out there. The only thing that is doesn't pick up is the POP mode on some radar guns. What is a POP Mode? You can trade it in on a newer model that does offer POP detection, call or email whistler for more information. www.whistlergroup.com or info@whistlergroup.com

Doesnt detect cops


Radar detection is not an absolute...there are several factors to consider:

-Most radar guns have an adjustable "gain"...which means that if an officer is only checking speeds to vehicles close by, he or she has the option of turning down the power. This means that your detector may not pick up the radar until you are right on top of it, if at all.

-Many police agencies are using laser or LIDAR technology for speed detection. Even if your detector is able to detect laser, the detector will not "see" it unless the police officer aims directly at your detector. The laser beam is very precise, and is only the size of a penny on the target vehicle when the officer is 1000+ yards away. Since the officer is usually targeting your license plate (it is the most reflective, and therefore the best target), the detector on your dashboard may miss it.

-Many radar guns, whether handheld or vehicle based, have an instant on feature. If you are in a "radar detector friendly state", the officers in your area probably use this option so they don't give away their location to those with detectors.

If in doubt, you may want to check your detector in the same vehicle with someone who has a known working one. If their detector goes off, and yours does not, yours is likely defective.

What does VG2 mean


It is a radar detector detector. So if you are running a radar in a state where it is illegal, this technology can detect the presence of your radar detector and you can be pulled over and ticketed. This is done by detecting the local oscillators and other "RF leakage" from the radar detector.
Sometimes you may notice that when you are near another car with a radar detector, your radar detector may go off. There are situations where your own radar detector can detect leaking RF energy from another detector in a nearby car.

Radar detector codes


When any detector "detects" radar, it will produce some form of Audiable sound. If someone is speeding, they need to slow down IMMEDIATELY if they want to avoid a ticket. It doesnt really matter if the radar gun is x, k, ka, ku, etc. You will probably get a ticket if you dont slow down.

Most dectectors will have indicators lights or displays that indicate the x, k, ka, etc., radar signals are actually being detected. This can provide SOME useful information. THe letters simply designate BANDS of frequencies that are used to send the radar beams. It is similar to changing the channel on a radio - k and ka bands use HIGHER frequencies for their radar signals.

X band is the oldest radar band and it is used for police radars AND door openers at supermarkets and other locations. If you drive by a supermarket, your radar detector is likely to go off and it is almost certainly going to be X band. CHeck it out next time you drive by a supermarket with an automatic door opener.

Since the police and the radar companies like to play cat and mouse, newer radar bands have been invented that OBSOLETE the older radar detectors. When the K bands showed up in the police radar guns, the radar detector folks had to have a new product offering that would detect X band and K band. And the race continues to go on even today and now, there are LASER police speed detectors and the new "RADAR" detectors now need LASER detectors as well. If you want to know the exact frequencies of these "bands" (K, Ka, etc), let me know and I will send them to you. But they are operating in the tens of GigaHertz regions.

Can police vehicles detec this device


Yes, all law enforcement officers and state troopers can detect just about all radars that are sold in America.

Even the laser based devices are detectable now...

Troubleshoot


You should try to find out what type of radar devices your police uses.ESD7000 model does not support some devices such as Ku band radar signal, but it should detect all laser signal.Laser signal is often jammed by sun light.If your police uses radar detector detectors VG2 it will force your detector to hide from it making it invisible for detecting.Try talking to someone who has other type of detector that works in your town.It is possible that you will be forced to buy another model.

Signals


When "X" lights up, this means that your RD is either detecting X band police radar or that it is detecting an X band microwave automatic door opener.

When "K" lights up, this means the same as above except that the radar signal is a K band radar signal.

When "Ka" lights up, then this means that your RD is detecting police Ka band radar since no automatic door openers operate on Ka band.

When "VG-2" lights up, this is supposed to mean that your RD is detecting a VG-2 radar detector detector (RDD). Police use RDDs such as the VG2 and the Spectre to indicate that a motorist is using a radar detector.
