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.
But don't worry - we have solutions for you!
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 Beltronics and Escort Radar eliminates leakage signal from radar receivers. Uniden also launches its own line of stealth detectors such as the R Series (R1, R3, and R7), crowned to be enthusiasts' favourite and the best portable detectors of the year.
Overview, Comparison, and Reviews on Undetectable Radar Detectors
Which radar detector do we recommend for Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Atlantic Canada?
Top-Picks Portable: Radenso Pro-M, Escort Redline Series, Uniden R-Series
Pro-M is also the flag-ship portable radar detector from Radenso brand, featuring the best MRCD photo-radar detection, and amazing filtering for both K-band BSM / ACC filtering as well as MRCD filtering.
Redline EX features long range performance, band-segmentation settings improving Ka-band response time, and Total-Shield stealth technology. Redline EX also includes GPS camera database, GPS Truelock with AutoLearn, Bluetooth Escort Live ready, and MRCD bands.
R7 offers dual-DSP radar antenna for extreme range for radar detection as well as giving directional radar alerts. A much faster processor also results in lightning fast response for detection. R7 is the flagship Uniden radar detector. 2020 production units also are reportedly better shielded and more stealth to Spectre RDD.
R1 is the least expensive R-series stealth detector. It has no GPS like the R3 or R7, so it's recommended if you intend to use it on the highways only (without GPS-filtering for city-driving).
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 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.
