Why Do You Need A Radar Detector?

By investing in a radar detector, you not only enhance your ability to adhere to speed limits, contributing to a more informed and confident driving experience. When a radar detector detects the presence of radar/laser signals in its vicinity, it activates an alert mechanism to warn you. This alert is usually in the form of a visual display, auditory tones, or both.

This advanced notice allows you to adjust your speed promptly, avoiding potential speeding tickets. Some radar detectors come with integrated GPS technology which helps you stay informed about known speed trap locations, red-light cameras, or speed limits for specific road segments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, radar detectors are absolutely legal in New Zealand. However, it’s essential to note that speeding remains both illegal and hazardous. If you happen to be pulled over, and the cops observe your radar detector, you won’t receive any sympathy. So, it’s important to stay mindful of speed limits and drive responsibly.

While higher up on the windscreen is preferable, it’s not imperative. Your radar detector can be installed in virtually any position on your car – be it on the window, dashboard, or even the seat. The key requirement is that it can receive a GPS signal for static speed camera alerts to function properly.

Yes, radar detectors have a range limitation based on factors like the type of radar being used, terrain, and weather conditions. Typically, the average range for most detectors is approximately 1 to 2 miles for highway use and around 500 to 1,000 feet for city driving.
