    Default Which is the best radar detector for Spain?

    I am looking for a new radar detector (I bought a BEL 735i when I left the US back in 98). Lately the spanish police has been setting up cameras all over the place, and specially in 60km/hr areas, where going 2xspeed limit is really easy and it means you loose your licence for 3 months.

    Therefore, and since my old radar cannot detect these cameras, I am looking for a radar that works here. In the web site http://www.radarshop.com/home.asp they say the Quintezz XT7000 Z-2 is the best one for Spain, although I am not familiar with this brand.

    In another web site http://www.radar-shop.de/html/espanol.html they recommend the Passport 8500 X50, BEL RX65 and the BEL Vector 995. In tje BEL web page they say that the Ku band is the one used in Europe, and of course, these two models have it.

    Which one would you experts recommend... by the way a ticket here is in the orther of $900 so price is not issue. (With the first ticket that I don't pay I get the radar for free...) Thank you very much.

    Juan

    Default Spain

    We have had several users comment that the best detector that they have found was the 975R: http://www.radarbusters.com/products...onics/975r.asp

    Do you know what kind of equipments are there? Detectors/jammers could help you against radars and lidars only.

    Hello T-T,


    Thanks for the link to the forum "Radar detector comparison tests against photo radars in EU". In it I found another link you posted to "What the Police using in your country?", where 'justinehuang' had a link to a Taiwanese web page.

    There I found pictures of the two types of radars I've seen most in Spain lately. http://www.escortcat.com/escort/trap/trap.htm They are the one at the top right (which the use in the country roads and then take away), and the 3rd starting from the left in the second row (which the use mainly in the cities). (I've tried to insert the image here, but I havn't been able to, sorry.)

    Apart from these, they are putting on the sides of the roads (not in the cities) fixed radars which are inside a green or gray box. It has a small rectangular cut in the front side, which I imagine is for the camera inside to take the picture.


    (I hope I inserted them correctly.)

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Juan!

    Well, the radar on that picture is Multanova 6F, it is on 34.3GHz +/-100MHz (Ka Band). It is a very low powered speed-trap, you must have a very good detector which alarms you in time.
    The second item is a Lidar (laser gun). You should have a jammer against that because RD's can issue a pre-alarm usually if they're aiming a car in front of you and you're lucky.
