    Default Any units available that will work from inside a glovebox?

    I'm new to the idea of a radar detector, so I apologize if this is a silly question. I've got a charger outlet inside my glovebox. Are there any radar detectors that will work from inside a glovebox?

    In a word? No.

    You could get a remote-mounted system and put the display in the glovebox...

    The answer is NO. The RD needs a clear view of the road to pick up signals

    is there a window from your glovebox to the road? if yes, then any detector will work . but on a serious note, no it will not work.

    Did they mention their new offer? Buy any two RMR radar "scramblers," and they'll throw in five acres of land in Texas. :wink:

    YES!!!

    RMR's units will work as well in the glove box as they do mounted on your windsheild.

    It is a good basic question....we all gotta start somewhere.
    And as most people said...No it will not work in a glove box.

    The 'RMR' they are reffering to is RockyMountainRadar they sell the most BS stuff ever...do not buy a RMR product...unless you want an expensive paperweight...I would have to say I wouldnt even count on them as a paperweight.


    'Matt1020' If you would like to flame, go and recieve flaming for being a 'noob' and visit the SDOT forum section... you will cry and never pick on another noob again. (If you are from there....you should know not to corrupt a young forum such as this one.)

    Oh I havent visted there in months...But those guys are BRUTAL

    :twisted:

    Yes , all the rf bands will work , not the laser of course .

    But the rf bands will work at a cost = loss of sensitivity , but not by much 10% at much. It is also related to the lenght of the wave , X Ka K reacts differently to the same material .This is why it is so hard to stealth a plane even with millions of $ :radar waves induce an electric current on any metal piece and re-radiate the waves : litterally the car and all the metal components become an antenna.

    Why will it work ? Radio frequency bounce everywhere , a fm radio will pickup the waves even deep inside a house. Rf is one of the most difficult radiation to contain. I used to hide my v-1 deep inside the well of ventilation and never failed to alert , but again not laser.
