Solar Glass / Heated Windscreens
Radar Detectors and GPS units installed in cars with a heat reflective (athermic) or solar reflective coating will not work without an additional antenna. These coatings over the glass are designed to keep UV rays out but also reflect satellite and radar signals. Please note that heated windscreens with metal elements in the glass, like Fords, are OK. If you are unsure about your windscreen please call for advice or check with your local dealer.

Radar Detectors and GPS based speedtrap detectors are legal in the UK.
NOTE: We do not condone speeding and will not be held responsible for anybody prosecuted for breaking the law. We support the use of radar detectors and similar devices for two reasons. Firstly, anyone who does a lot of driving is bound to unintentionally break the speed limit at some point because they do not notice their speed creep up as they follow the car in front. We feel you should be warned about your speed before you are prosecuted for a crime you did not intend to commit. Advanced warnings allow drivers to make an early decision to manage their speed of approach safely and smoothly.
Secondly, cameras should be placed on dangerous roads and in accident blackspots to slow traffic down and catch the most reckless of drivers who do not have the skill to sensibly judge a dangerous stretch of road or are unfamiliar with the road ahead. If this is the case then these devices will give you advanced warning of possible danger ahead. Unfortunately cameras and police speed traps are often placed on straight flat clear sections of road with no immediate danger or where the speed limit has recently been reduced with the sole intention of catching speeding motorists and generating fines, see Press Clippings. However, for those placed correctly in accident blackspots, a radar detector can give you advanced warning of danger on the road ahead. Please Also click here for recent news
