Who needs an undetectable radar detector in Canada?
Use of a radar detector is prohibited in the following Canadian provinces: Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, Yukon, and NWT.
Fortunately, most modern radar detectors are also designed to be stealth!
If you live in a province listed above, or plan to travel through the eastern provinces, you will need an undetectable radar detector, designed to be stealth and invisible to police Spectre radar-detector-detectors (RDD). Total Shield technology by Escort Radar eliminates leakage signal from radar receivers - see Redline 360c. Uniden also manufactures its own line of low-leakage stealth detectors such as the R Series (R4 / R8).
Overview, Comparison, and Reviews on Undetectable Radar Detectors
Which radar detector do we recommend for Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Atlantic Canada?
Top-Picks Portable: Uniden R4 / R8, Radenso DS1, Escort Redline 360c
Redline 360c is the flagship Escort radar detector, offering 100% fully stealth (zero leakage) TotalShield, extreme long range (similar to R7 performance), directional arrows, with amazing BSM filtering.
Redline 360c also supports MRCD/CT photo radar detection, and GPS camera database for speed-cams and red-light cameras.
Released in late 2021, the DS1 model is highly anticipated in the radar detector community. Preliminary testing have shown impressive Ka-band detection among the top performers, and it also features GPS auto-lockout, great BSM filtering, magnetic mounting design, and Bluetooth connectivity.
The new Uniden R4 features dual LNA design, offering extreme detection range. Other features include MRCD/CT photo radar detection, GPS camera database, K-Block1/2, Quiet-Ride and Auto Mute-Memory. Uniden R4 is set to replace the R3 model.
Improved over the R7 model, the R8 utilizes the new dual-LNA design and offer even more range and sensitivity for radar detection, while eliminating most false alarms. Uniden R8 is currently the flagship radar detector with directional arrows. Like the R4 model, the R8 is functionally stealth and considered safe to use in eastern Canada.
Custom-Installed Stealth Radar System:
Ontario's New Photo Radar
Ontario (especially GTA) is now running photo radar boxes with MultaRadar (MRCD). We recommend the following stealth detectors:
Quebec's MRCT Stationary Photo Radar
Quebec's photo radar encounters are mostly stationary at a fixed location, typically with a camera mounted on a pole. These are running MultaRadar CT (MRCT). We recommend the following choices for a radar detector:
However, most of these are marked with signages indicating photo radar ahead.
