Craig Peterson (author of Driver’s Guide to Police Radar) had tested these new and improved Spectre RDDs against the top selling radar detectors of the leading radar detector manufacturers, Beltronics, Cobra, Escort, Valentine, and Whistler some time ago and came away with some surprising results.
The new Spectre IV + RDD has advanced filtering capabilities— that heretofore, where not provided by the earlier models of Spectre RDDs (Spectre II, Spectre III).
Instead of detecting poorly shielded (ie; noisy and cheap) radar detectors (ie; noisy) at 5,000 feet and driving the officer nuts with an interminably long audio/visual alert, the new Spectre IV + RDD singles out these “cheap” radar detectors and dials back sensitivity.
This translates into several hundred feet of range, more than enough, and a much briefer alert. Sensitivity and target range of other radar detector models are unaffected.
