We want to share some installation precautions of radar detectors here.
These suggestions will help you make full use of the detector and make your driving experience more enjoyable. Let’s start.
Which Is the Best Installation Position of Radar Detector?
You can get the best detection range by installing the radar detector on the windshield.
With this installation, even if your geographical location changes, also if you drive up and down the mountain, you can detect the signal faster.
Another advantage of installing the detector high on the windshield is that it’s hard for others to find that you have a radar detector in your car. Installing the detector very low, and leaving it on the windshield can easily attract thieves.
At the same time, this installation also prevents others from tracking you when they see it. This will maximize your privacy.
It is worth noting that some vehicles on the market have a nonferrous film on the windshield. Installing the radar detector behind the nonferrous metal film will seriously affect the performance of the sensor.
The ceramic color will not affect the performance of radar detection but may affect the performance of laser detection.
To quickly determine whether there is a nonferrous film on your car, go to the false alarm area, you know, and locate yourself at the position where the radar signal is weak.
Then, move the detector under the color to see if the signal strength increases. If the signal is enhanced, then you can know that your radar is affected by the tone, and you need to relocate to the position of colorless glass.
How to install the detector is also essential. Whether you use the original suction cup or choose the sunshade installation, make sure to aim at the front to maintain the best performance possible. The radar detector pointing up or down will endanger the detection performance.
Keep these two preferences in mind.
Many drivers will choose to install the detector near the rearview mirror because they are naturally used to looking in that direction.
If this is not attractive to you, please find the direction you will skim to from time to time on the windshield, and set the false alarm coordinates or adjust the settings.
