We have tried to avoid answering these questions directly as "best" can mean different things to different people, and it also depends largely where you drive, whether you want a portable unit or a fully integrated system? What you should really be asking is, "What is the best radar detector or laser defence for me?"

 

Often an international review has little or no relevance to radar or laser detectors used in New Zealand. There really is no such thing as "the world's best detector," again it depends where in the world you are. Our policy has traditionally been to provide a comprehensive range of radar detectors and laser defence available at the best possible prices. Typically we provide the product specifications and allow our customers to make an informed decision.

 

The internet is inundated with reviews and videos of radar detectors and laser jammers. These reviews, however, concentrate solely on the absolutes of detection range and jamming capability and little more, awarding a top rating to a radar detector simply because it had the longest range. Many tests made in the USA, are on frequencies or laser equipment not used in New Zealand and at significantly stronger signal strengths that are much easier to detect. So clearly these tests are not a true representation of performance and detection capabilities when used in New Zealand. Properly informed and presented with the real facts it is much easier to buy a radar detector or laser defence in confidence.

Radar Detectors are legal to own and use throughout New Zealand, Laser jammers are a grey area and uses should decide for themselves if they should use these devices.

We stock a wide range of performance and budget radar detectors – be mindful that more money does not necessarily equate in to better performance from a radar detector.
