Question about Traveller II Radar Detector

1 Answer

I have researched radar detectors and am concerned about the SpectreRDD as I live in Virginia. I am about to purchase a high tech radar detector and have narrowed the search to the Beltronics STi driver and the Escort 9500ix. I am slightly confused in asking other people. I think I know for sure that the Beltronics model is safe but I am still perplexed concerning the 9500ix. I have spoken to Escort dealers that have told me that the SDD can only detect the 9500ix if the 9500ix is within 25 feet of the unit so that the driver will haveample time to turn the 9500ix off. Please help and Have a Blessed Day, Sam

Call Beltronics tell them you have an RX65 out of warranty. They charge about $65. When I did mine I sent them only the detector and they also set me a new cord & suction cups.

Can you show me where to get the user manual for a cobra superwide laser detector with model number r-213


Unfortunately, Cobra does not provide secondary or tertiary manuals on their website for this old model of Laser Detector.

Your best bet would be to either purchase a new Laser/Radar detector from Cobra and get the manual from that.

Hope this helps.

Thanks!

Tips to Picking the Best Radar Detector


Remember the last speed ticket you received? Remember thinking that you must have a radar detector? Well, life is a little easier, follow these tips when you decide you do not want another speeding ticket to remember. The Internet is the best source of information for most people. There are a number of sites that offer expert testimony about the options and models that best suits your needs and budget.

An interesting fact to consider when deciding to buy a radar detector, there are over 100,000 radar detectors used by the police every day in this country. This number increases to about 20,000 more each year.

The price is also taken into account more people. But the old adage, you get what you pay for, is incredibly accurate radar detectors. When you think of the money is used, when you get your ticket (ticket price for the time off work to pay for it, increases in insurance premiums, etc.), it's worth, that most people spend the more money to buy high quality radar detector.

Do you remember the last speed ticket you received? Do you remember thinking that you should have a radar detector? Well, lives just got a little easier to follow these tips when you decide you do not want another speeding ticket to remember

I HAD 8500 SERIES FOR 4 YEARS , WITH NO PROBLEMS. WAS RECENTLY PULLED OVER AND TOLD BY COP HE DETECTED MY DETECTOR.HE WAS COOL , HE TOLD ME I SHOULD UPGRADE TO 9500 SERIES. CAN THE 8500 SERIES BE DETECTED...


Radar detectors use what's called a superheterodyne receiver to tune in the high frequency radar signals. A side effect of this design is that they emit a small radio signal at a predictable frequency, and thus devices like the Spectre can detect them. States like Virginia (where radar detectors are illegal, f*** that state btw) equip their patrol cars with Spectres to find those of us who use them. Many commercial enforcement vehicles also have them, since it is illegal at the federal level for any vehicle requiring a commercial driver's license to have a radar detector.

The only detectors on the market now which are known to not be detectable by the latest Spectre IV units are the Bel STi Driver and the Escort Passport 9500ci. Note that this is not the standalone 9500i/9500xi unit, but the full custom installed unit with laser jamming.

If you're not one of those unfortunate enough to live in Virginia, I wouldn't bother. If you do live in VA, get the STI Driver.

NEED INSTRUCTION/OWNER MANUAL


Uniden has been out of the radar detector business for some time now. I would strongly suggest getting a different radar detector instead of using this older model since newer radar detector models generally have far better performance -- especially for detecting Ka band radar.

Anyway, Uniden's web site does not list an instruction manual for this particular radar detector model. Yet, take a look at the instruction manual for the most similarly numbered product model shown in the following link:

Uniden Owners Manuals -- Radar Detectors

One of the instruction manuals in the above link should be similar enough to your radar detector so that you can figure out everything regarding your specific Uniden RD model.

Got this from a friend but never used one before so I don't know to much about this radar detecter could you give me some advice?


The best place online to learn about radar detectors and how to use them is radardetector.net. I would highly recommend a new radar detector model compared to any old Uniden radar detector. Uniden has been out of the radar detector business for some time now.

Ku is a band of radar used in some places by law enforcement. It is not used everywhere and can be a pain if it goes off for no reason. I recommend consulting your manual and turning the Ku band off if it is not used in the area in which you live. This will enable your detector to become more reliable for when you are being "zapped" by law enforcement

Pop is a way of using radar where the officer turns his radar on and off quickly. As a car approaches, they will turn the radar on long enough to get a speed reading, then immediately turn it back off to avoid detection by civilian radar devices. Some of the newer models of radar detectors have a feature which detects pop radar.

Every electronic device emits a frequency. Vg2 is what law enforcement use in states where radar detectors are illegal to identify whether a car is using a radar detector. The newer version of vg2 is called spectre and accomplishes the same thing. Some radar detectors can pick up on vg2 and spectre so the owner can turn the detector off before they are detected by law enforcement.

VG-2 is a technology that police use to detect radar detectors. Detectors with this feature will detect when VG-2 is in use, and alert you to its presence.

AND

the x,k,ka codes you see flashing are......

X, K, and Ka Superwide are the radar bands that are used by police radar guns. X band was the first band used for by radar guns, but is now the least used. All radar detectors that we carry detect all 3 of these bands.

If you live near a cell-phone tower, your radar detector can pick up on the waves coming from it. If you like in an area where radar detectors are legal and Ku band is not used, I recommend turning off the vg2, spectre and Ku bands on your detector. This will not only cut down on some of the "noise" but also make your radar detector more reliable for when you are actually "zapped" by law enforcement.

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.

I need a new speaker. Where can I get one?


I purchased one at Radio Shack for my Radar Detector.

If you take it to the store they should be able to show you one.




Best of Luck.
