On long drives and road trips, it’s easy to get into the flow and stop paying attention to exactly how fast you’re driving. If you don’t have a fancy GPS system in your car that warns you when you go over the speed limit, you may want to look into getting a radar detector to help prevent you from speeding.
Yes, a radar detector. These days they have great features, one of which is the ability to set a speed and then get alerted if you start driving above that speed. That way you don’t get a speeding ticket because you won’t speed in the first place. That would be so helpful on long drives and road trips!
The Uniden R7 Radar Detector, available at Best Buy (the sponsor of this post), allows you to set the MAX speed you want to drive. If you exceed your preset speed, a voice notification will warn you so you have a chance to slow down. That way you don’t even need to take your eyes off the road to check your speed and you can keep driving safely.
It does actually come with a large color OLED display though so you can quickly and easily read any relevant information. On this screen, you’ll also see directional arrows that identify the direction of incoming radar signals and change color on a scale of green to red to indicate the signal’s strength.
If you’re into the technical stuff, the Uniden R7 Radar Detector has a K-Filter and Ka-Filter to filter noise from the K and Ka bands to prevent false detections. It also has high sensitivity on all conventional and instant-on radar bands for long-range detection. It can track up to four signals at the same time for greater awareness while you drive.
The Uniden R7 Radar Detector works with most vehicles, so you can most likely use it in your current one. Check it out before your next road trip!
