Accuracy matters.

Here's why.

Our radar antenna sees radar in high definition pictures, just like radar antennas used in high-tech industries and labs do. But regular antennas do not. Admittedly, we went through the extra effort and cost to develop such a high-tech antenna simply because we are tech nerds and enjoy doing the best we can, but those are not the main reasons. What really drives us is user experience. Please take a quick look at these two radar signal graphs...


Judging by those graphs, the two radar signals are the same, right? We bet your last radar detector would think so, as it would not see more than these simplistic block diagrams…


Lower resolution antennas see lower resolution pictures. They see the world inaccurately. Consequently, they will treat these two radar signals in one and the same way. Why is that important? Well, because it can be the difference between a smooth ride and a ride pained by false alarms. The devil is in the detail. Analyzing these same two signals, this is what your Stinger would see...


For the user experience.

Seeing accurate radar pictures makes a difference of night and day. The difference between a real alert and a false alert. The difference between being able to rely on your co-pilot and continuously being bothered by it. Imagine you get a radar alert that clearly does not come from a radar gun: a false alert. Let’s assume that the product you use has a function that lets you designate this alert as ‘false’. Most detectors do not have such a function (we call this FalseList®), but let’s assume so anyway.

Now, what happens if you run into a genuine radar check which produces a signal that rudimentarily ‘looks’ the same as the one that you have put in your product's memory as being false? Right. You will not get an alert.

But this goes even further, in a big way. Only truly accurate antennas can swiftly recognize and alert to modern low power radars. Most radar detectors do not even get near being able to do that. That’s why we use high tech components and insist on building the most precise antennas. Ultimately, accuracy is a prerequisite to a pleasant user experience.
