information and advice is relevant to those
areas (countries or states) that restrict
the use of Radar/Laser Detectors. There
is an emphasis on "stealth" and
"undetectability". Models that
are not immune to RDDs (Radar Detector Detectors)
are highlighted to denote their unsuitability.
Remote (built-in) Radar Detectors can be the
best choice for drivers who use only one personal vehicle. Weigh the
various factors and then decide.
view (degree varies according to
range of most Radar Speed Cameras

(depending on installation)
Several models are immune to RDDs
Remote Radar Detectors designs are multi-piece units. The radar antenna and detection circuitry is in a waterproof housing mounted behind the front bumper. Laser sensors may be included or in separate housings positioned in the grille area. The switches and audio/visual warning components are contained in a smaller control box inside the vehicle. The intent is to provide a more discrete device that will not be noticed by "enforcers". Eliminating the possibility of theft is another consideration.
For "Oz" there is one
feature that rules most RDs "in"
or "out" regardless of their reputation
in the USA or elsewhere - RDD immunity.
Beltronics - XRC Ultimate
The Beltronics XRC-Ultimate (STiR-PLUSINTERNATIONAL) is the Remote Radar/Laser/GPS model we recommend for Australia & New Zealand. It's unsurpassed sensitivity and stealth features (undetectable) make it unique.
GPS integration adds alerts for fixed speed and red-light cameras through the TRINITY database. With "True-Lock", it is possible to eliminate false alerts in areas where you drive regularly.
The ability to selectively scan just part of the Ka-band (specific radars in your state) increases sensitivity (detection range) substantially. This makes Beltronics XRC-Ultimate (STiR-PLUSINTERNATIONAL) the choice for long-range detection in the states of Australia and New Zealand.
Beltronics XRC-Ultimate (based on STiR-PLUSINTERNATIONAL) for Australia & NZ features firmware and hardware improvements over previous models. Warning range of the difficult to detect MultaRadar CD Multanova CT and Redflex (ADG) K-band speed cameras is enhanced. Detection of the new Gatso RT2 (mobile) and RT3 (fixed) tracking RADAR is the latest addition.
