The 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. Portable Radar Detectors (self-contained) can be the best choice for many drivers. Weigh the various factors and then decide.

moved from car to car
Several models are immune to RDDs
original portable Radar Detector design
(1970s) is a self-contained unit that's
powered from a vehicle's cigarette lighter
socket. The size and shape of all brands/models
is governed by the the relatively large
detectors also include laser sensors. The
"housing" is always approximately
120 mm (long) x 80 mm (wide) x 30 mm (high).
In imperial measurements - 4.75 inches x
3.25 inches x 1.25 inches.
Despite increasingly complex features, the
purpose of the device remains the same -
to provide an audible alert when a police
radar signal is present. Some units are
able to achieve this advantage at much greater
distances than others. More so than with
other products - you get what you pay for.
For "Oz" there is one
feature that rules most RDs "in"
or "out" regardless of their reputation
in the USA or elsewhere - RDD (Radar Detector Detector) immunity.
Escort REDLINE ProA (INTERNATIONAL) is now the recommended Radar/Laser Detector for Australia and New Zealand.
The latest version with "K-band Segmentation" avoids false alerts from Mercedes vehicles with Disctronic Radar cruise control.
Warning range of the difficult to detect MultaRadar CD Multanova CT K-band speed cameras is enhanced. Detection of the new Gatso RT2 (mobile) and RT3 (fixed) tracking RADAR is the latest addition.
The Redflex (ADG RADAR) Speed Cameras can be detected: This is achieved by the ProA version's extra bandwidth compared to the USA Model. The optional vertical screen-mount renders detection alerts earlier and more reliable.
The latest version with "Ka-band Segmentation" scans just the segment (1, 2 or 3 of 10) that contains the Ka frequency (frequencies) used in your area.
The ability to "turn OFF" features like SWS (Safety Warning System) and RDR (Radar Detector Rejection) enables faster scanning and quicker processing of signals. This results in greater detection range of all types of RADAR including "moving" - car mounted and "stationary" - speed cameras.
