Corded Radar Detector

Where does a corded radar detector go? Usually, you will put it on your windshield, attaching it with suction cups.

When it comes to accuracy, this sort of radar detector offers the highest range of detection, so it's the most accurate. So if avoiding speeding tickets and fines is of paramount importance, the corded radar detector might appeal strongly to you.

Before making a final decision, weigh the pros and cons. Is the high accuracy of this kind of radar detector worth the inconvenience of having a cord attached?

Cordless Radar Detector

A cordless radar detector is a convenient option for multiple-automobile owners. If you need to put it in your other automobile, it's really easy to just carry it over. With no cord hanging off the radar detector, installing this device in your car is very easy and convenient.

Some people argue that the cordless detectors can't compete when it comes to accuracy, so that's a possible downside. Then again, it depends on the manufacturer - some truly good quality models of cordless radar detector are going to be better than the corded style from a less-good manufacturer. Always check the facts for yourself. To sum up, anyone who owns more than one vehicle should at least be considering a cordless radar detector.

Remote-Mount Radar Detector

Remote-mount detectors are permanently mounted inside your car. This type of radar detector is amazing protection against thieves, because you can't even tell that it's installed.

Obviously, this is not the way to go if you want to take your radar detector out of one vehicle and put it in another. Since it's permanently mounted, it's not portable in the least. This should be a really easy decision for you to make: is security or portability more important to you?
