Stalker Radar Introduces the Spectre III Radar Detector
With radar detectors illegal in Washington, D.C. and Virginia, and completely prohibited in all commercial motor vehicles across the United States by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Regulation 392.71, the Spectre III is the sensible addition to any patrol vehicle.
The Spectre III detects radar detectors by sensing microwave “leakage” from the devices. The Spectre III is capable of detecting all radar detectors certified for use in the United States by the Federal Communications Commission as of December 2004, including models that feature “cloaking” and “VG-2 Alert.”
The Spectre III mounts on the vehicle’s windshield and can be rotated a full 360 degrees. It can monitor traffic in front or behind in either stationary or moving mode.
The device displays signal strength and features operator-adjustable gain and signal volume controls as well as automatic high-temperature shutoff. Learn more about the Spectre III at: www.stalkerradar.com/rdd or email [email protected]

How the Spectre Radar Detector Detector (RDD) Works
By Radar Roy - 0 Comments
Are you a professional driver?
Or do you live or frequently drive in virginia or washington dc.
If you’re considering purchasing a radar detector and you have answered yes to either of these two questions, then this video is just for you.
Hi, my name is Radar Roy and I’m a retired cop, certified traffic radar instructor and in 1996 I joined the dark side by launching the website RadarBusters.com where I share videos and articles just like this one providing you tips and strategies on how to avoid speeding tickets and reviewing various speed counter measurement devices.
Now in areas where radar detectors are illegal they use a device that is a radar detector detector called the Spectre that can sniff out a radar detector hundreds of yards away.
However you’ll notice in this video that I also have a radar detector installed under the mirror that I am able to operated as I’m recording this video and that the Spectre is not alerting to it.
This is because it’s only one of four radar detectors that is available today that can defeat the Spectre and I’ll share more about that toward the end of this video.
Now let me explain how the Spectre works.
First off it was developed by an Australian by the name of Pete Taylor and his company Steath Miro Systems in1998.
The US distributor for the Spectre is Stalker and their customers include various police departments thought-out North America that enforce commercial vehicle laws.
Now on the front of the Spectre you’ll notice the green power LED, a red LED that will light if the unit overheats, an inter dial to adjust the sensitivity of the receiver, an inter dial for power and volume, and then a series of 5 LED lights from green to red that measure the signal strength of the incoming signal.
In basic terms the Spectre RDD is able to receive radio frequency or RF that is emitted from the radar detectors oscillators.
Now Because of the directional antenna in the front and the ability to adjust the sensitivity, a properly trained officer can quite easily identify a car or truck that has a radar detector.
Now in this first example I’m a couple hundreds of yards behind a semi tanker truck when you’ll notice my first alert of the Spectre RDD.
At this time I have the Spectre pointed straight ahead at maximum sensitivity.
Now as I begin to get closer to the rear of the truck I begin turning down the sensitivity of the Spectre until I am just a few yards behind the truck.
Now because of federal laws having a radar detector in any commercial vehicle weighing over 18,000 pounds is against the law.
And also because of federal laws a police officer does not need any type of search warrant or probable cause to do a commercial vehicle inspection.
So at this point if I was a police officer I could pull this truck over now, check his logbooks and do a full safety inspection, while also of course looking for his radar detector.
Now this all could had been avoided if the driver would had invested in a stealth radar detector, instead of one of those cheaper detectors which leak RF, making them so easy to detect.
Now here is an example of a common tactic employed by police officers and that is parking at an entrance of a truck stop or weigh station.
Here you can see several vehicles entering the truck stop as my Spectre RDD begins to activate.
Now it wouldn’t be hard for an officer to figure out which one of these vehicles has the offending radar detector if this was in Virginia or Washington DC where detectors are illegal.
Next I’ll share with you another common tactic used by police and that’s just sitting on the side of the road, waiting for their Spectre RDD alert.
Watch the video carefully and you’ll notice the LED signal strength and the audio tone get louder and as the signal gets to be the strongest point I pick the Spectre up and point it at a black Audi.
After the cars passed I pulled on to the highway and began to follow in an attempt to catch up with the Audi.
Well I was in luck as I noticed the Audi pull into a gas station and I pulled up directly in front of him.
Now take note of the windshield just under the rear view mirror and you’ll notice one of those real leaky Cobra radar detectors that they promote as being able to defeat the Spectre.
So a question you maybe asking yourself is there any radar detector that can defeat this radar detector detector.
Well yes and again I had one of these radar detectors hanging on my read view mirror the entire time of this video and you noticed that it never set the Spectre off and that is the Escort Redline.
The Escort Redline is perhaps on of the most popular radar detectors we sell on our website Radarbusters not only because of it’s ability to defeat all radar detectors but also because of it’s extreme range.
The Redline just like the Beltronics STi Magnum, the Beltronics STiR Plus and the Passport 9500ci are all built on Escort’s M3 dual feedhorn M3 antenna design enabling all four of these detectors to be 100% stealth to all radar detectors.
Now both the Beltronics STiR Plus and the Passport 9500ci are remote mounted radar detectors, which also enable them to be stealth to the eye.
Now the main difference between the STiR Plus and the 9500ci is that the STiR Plus is sold without the Laser Shifters, which enables laser jamming also.

Spectre Elite, Maximum Detection Range Test
April 1, 2017
- 8 mins to read
This weekend I tested out a bunch of radar detectors against the Spectre Elite, the latest and greatest version of the Spectre radar detector detector.
Radar Detectors Tested:
Escort max360, escort passport max2, radenso pro, radenso pro se, valentine one, cobra dsp9200bt, cobra xrs 9930.
- V8 (Cheap Chinese $10 detector)
Beltronics magnum, whistler cr93.
The Spectre Elite was set to the recommended settings as per the manual with the filter off and the sensitivity adjustment knob set to the 3 o’clock position.
Every radar detector was configured the same with X band off, K band on, Ka segmented 2/5/8 as appropriate.
I then drove away, turned back around, and slowly started driving towards the RD, measuring the distance where the Spectre was first able to pick up the detector as well as where it was able to get a good, solid signal. Sometimes the two were the same and other times I could pick up a weak signal farther away before getting a better signal closer up.
I will be doing more testing actually driving past the detectors on the road and not stopping directly in front of the car and that will likely show different results (a detector that requires you to be 10-15 feet away, parked nose to nose, in order to be detected will likely be undetectable by someone driving past the vehicle, for example).
Here’s a look at the results plus videos of all the testing so you can see how things look for yourself, along with any interesting notes as applicable. 🙂
The Radenso XP is only detectable from about 14-18 feet away.
Purchase a Radenso XP
The Uniden DFR7 is almost undetectable too, requiring the Spectre to be 11-14 feet away.
Interestingly, we found out that when shot with laser, the DFR7 shuts down its radar scanning/detecting and becomes temporarily immune to RDD detection. 🙂
Purchase a Uniden DFR7
The Max360 was detectable 292 feet away and gave us a solid reading at 285 feet.
Purchase a Max360
The results of the Max2 testing surprised me. I figured it’d be the same as the Max360 (but less detectable from behind due to the lack of rear antenna.. I’ll test this later), but it was only detectable 101 feet away. It’s certainly not stealth, but it was only detectable from 1/3 as far away as the Max360.
Purchase a Max2
The Radenso Pro was detectable 151 feet away.
Purchase a Radenso Pro
The Radenso Pro SE was detectable just 12 feet away. The low noise amplifier (LNA) inside the RPSE which helps boost the strength of weak signals and give the detector extra sensitivity (this is the difference between the RP and the RPSE) also acts as a one way switching which helps prevent signals from leaking back out of the detector’s horn (antenna). This test is an awesome illustration of the difference the LNA makes in terms of RDD immunity.
Purchase a Radenso Pro SE
The V1 was first detectable 194 feet away, but the signal was pretty sporadic. Once we got closer to 142 feet away, then the signal became consistent and strong. This was with a v3.8945 V1.
Purchase a Valentine One
The Cobra DSP9200BT is practically immune to being detected by the Spectre Elite, only being picked up 15 feet away when parked nose to nose.
Purchase a Cobra DSP9200BT
The Cobra XRS could be picked up by the Spectre Elite 825 feet away and the Spectre had a strong signal at 543 feet.
The Cobra advertises that it’s immune to being detected by the older Spectre 1 and I activated the Spectre 1 Alert, but it never alerted to the Spectre Elite and was easily detected by it.
This cheap $10 Chinese radar detector was detectable by the Spectre Elite 840 feet away.
The Escort Redline features Escort’s patented TotalShield technology and is completely undetectable by the Spectre Elite.
Purchase a Redline here
The Beltronics Magnum also features Escort’s patented TotalShield technology and is also completely undetectable by the Spectre Elite.
Purchase a Magnum here
Last but not least, the most interesting one! When the Whistler CR93 was tested in the flat open roads in Texas, the Spectre Elite could pick it up at well over a mile away at 6,234 feet! Needless to say, I figured this would be interesting. 🙂
On my shorter and hillier course, the Spectre Elite was able to pick up the CR93 not only driving towards it, but also while driving away from it, with the Spectre pointed at its back! It was detectable literally the entire length of the course, maxing out the course… To try and gain more distance, I went down a gravel road full of potholes and yet once I turned back around, as soon as I crested atop a small hill and regained line of sight, BOOM. Strong signal again. I simply didn’t have enough road to adequately test out the Whistler CR93.
Needless to say, unless you’re trying to enter some sort of competition for having the most detectable radar detector, the Whistler CR93 definitely shouldn’t be considered as a pick for a stealthy radar detector.
Purchase a Whistler CR93
Finally I want to thank everyone who contributed gear for testing purposes!

Hello vortex great job and useful information for us all. I would suggest you to switch the euro mode off in the v1 and that will probably reduce the distance that the v1 can be detected by the spectre. p.s I wanted to get your opinion on thinkware dash cams what do you think?? thanks and best wishes Mottie
- Vortex on April 7, 2017 at 9:42 am Author
Hey Mottie. I was actually running the V1 with Custom Sweeps enabled which requires Euro Mode to be loaded in to work. I did a previous test with everything running in A mode and all bands disabled and the V1 was still detectable. https://youtu.be/0dWcUedOQ4w I know that’s not the same test as you’re referring to, but it looks like the V1 is detectable at least either way.
As for Thinkware, I haven’t had a chance to test out their dashcams yet, but I’ve heard great things about them for the most part.
- Tyler on June 2, 2017 at 10:41 am
Hey man great videos and information as always. I see on their website the Uniden R3 says Spectre Elite undetectable. Does this mean it is like the redline and not detectable by RDD? Thanks in advance.
- Vortex on June 2, 2017 at 2:48 pm Author
Watch this video and see for yourself. 😉 https://youtu.be/qBGVmoECRZM
- Tyler on June 3, 2017 at 3:17 am
Wow that is awesome. I would consider that undetectable. Looks like the R3 will be my purchase. I love my redline but the lack of filtering and gps lockouts is annoying. Thanks again. Awesome video.
- Nathan Canning on September 17, 2017 at 4:46 pm
Just got a bnib Sti magnum for 200 cad. Happy to see it’s completely undetectable. I live in Ontario.

Is Stealth Micro systems going to come out with a newer version of the Spectre? The Elite has been around for a while now, hasn’t it? Maybe they have given up on any newer versions because they know more and more detectors are undetectable?
- victor on May 8, 2021 at 3:15 pm
Hi, I am living in Minnesota but moving to Maryland and may have to drive through Virginia occasionally. I have an older Valentine one but want to get a newer detector. I want to make sure my radar is not detected by the police Specter elite or other RDD detectors as I drive through Virginia. If was to buy a newer detector, which radar detector would be the best for detecting radar and lasers, but also at not being detected themselves theoretically. I have been reading about the escort redline, but I am also reading a lot of bad reviews about it as well. Thank you. V
- Vortex on May 11, 2021 at 8:20 am Author
Against RDD’s, a stealth detector like the V1 Gen2 or Redline 360c would work great. Against laser, no radar detector is suitable. You need a laser jammer.

Well I've got the STI and love it but just like anything else in the world I always want more. I was looking around a couple of nights ago at Radar detector reviews and realized the Cobra can detect Spectre III. I would love it if the STI could do this! I'm always curious to see what the OPP is up to and besides it would also serve as another way of detecting LEO's. Think Beltronics would ever do this?
The cobra can do that? didnt even know, pretty neat though

I very much doubt that Cobra can detect Spectre III.

The A1M7 (first version) of the STi can detect the Spectre III at very close range. STi would alert Ka when very close to spectre.

I was looking around a couple of nights ago at Radar detector reviews and realized the Cobra can detect Spectre III. That was their CLAIM and it was the Spectre I, not III. This was debunked at the 2005 SML test. It didn't alert at all, and the Cobra was detected over 1200 feet away...

I remember some Cobra's can detect VG-2 interceptor (and it does it well, remember this video ). It would be nice if Cobra could make a VG-2 and Spectre detector as they are not good for radar detectors
ops: Yeah the claim was for a Spectre I. (I used to be CanuckSTI_User but I messed up my login) I wonder what sort of leakage a Spectre III has? It has something if it sets off a Ka alert. Doesn't sound like it'd be too hard for Beltronics to detect it on purpose. They've already done it by accident!

I've had my A1M7 go off with what I assume was a Spectre III alert. Found an unmarked OPP car around the next corner with the Spectre hanging from the windshield.

Spectre IV Radar Detector Detector
Can spectre rdd detect sti magnum, passport9500ci.
The new Spectre IV and IV+ radar detector detectors (RDD) have improved local oscillator detection sensitivity, which enables police to detect noisy radar detectors at greater distances. The Spectre IV+ has a unique control allowing the operator to better locate radar detectors in commercial vehicles in states and provinces where radar detectors are legal for private vehicles. Spectre iv and Spectre iii, VG4 is used in USA and Europe. VG2 is used in the USA, all versions of Stalcar, Spectre Mark IV+ is used in AU and NZ, while OPP Spectre is used in Canada. All of these RDD devices are designed to detect your radar detector by sensing the local oscillator frequency of the radar detector , but certain radar detectors are undetectable to RDD. The STi Magnunm and Escort Redline are totally invisible to all Spectre, Stalcar, OPP, VG2 and VG4. The Passport 9500ci radar laser jammer is also 100% invisible to all of these RDD tools.
The STi-R Plus (used in USA, Canada and also in Europe for narrowband Ka photo radar), Passport 9500ci (used in US and Canada), STi Magnum (USA and Canada) and Escort Redline (USA and Canada) radar detectors can not be detected by any RDD including, but not limited to Spectre iv, Spectre Iv+, Spectre iii, Spectre ii, VG2, VG4, STalcar RDD used in AU, RCMP and OPP Spectre RDD in Canada.
The Spectre IV and IV+ locate radar detectors by detecting the electromagnetic (RF) “leakage” from the local oscillator frequency of the radar detector. Some manufacturers try to screen out the leakage with shielding; others try to adjust the leakage to a frequency that the Spectre isn’t sensitive to. So far, most radar detector manufacturers have failed and their products are easily detected by the Spectre IV; except for the Beltronics STi Magnum, STi-R Plus hidden radar detector and the Passport 9500ci remote radar detector.
Spectre 4 RDD (including Spectre iii, ii, VG2, VG4, Stalcar RDD and OPP Spectre in Canada) is quite effective at detecting nearly all other radar detectors including Valentine One, Valentine One Euro, many of the Bel and Escort radar detectors, Cobra and Whistler radar detectors.However, the above 4 radar detectors can not be detected by any RDD.

- Best Stealth & Undetectable Radar Detectors
Although radar detectors are legal, cops still use radar detector detectors (RDDs) to know if you have one. And if your detector doesn’t have cloaking capabilities, it’s easy for the police to give you a strange look. The question is, are you willing to accept that vulnerability?
We hope not. So, we’ve compiled the best stealth and undetectable radar detectors below.
Table of Contents
1. Escort RedLine Ex
2. uniden r3, 3. radenso xp, our top pick – escort redline ex, top invisible radar detectors.
The Escort Redline Ex is currently touted as one of the best radar detectors in the market today. There are two reasons for this.
One, this is the closest we can get to a completely undetectable radar detector. And two, the Redline Ex boasts of one of the longest tested ranges of radar detectors currently available in the market.
The Redline Ex (as well as its predecessor, the Redline) sets itself apart from the Escort roster with its proven claims of undetectability. In fact, the Redline Ex has TotalShield RF technology, a patented feature by Escort. This is what keeps this device undetectable by RDDs such as the older VG-2 and Spectre models including the Elite.
So while most radar detectors have little to no means of going invisible against powerful RDDs like the Spectre, this one can handle it.
But just to be clear, all states in the US besides Virginia and Washington DC allow the use of radar detectors. Still, many mid-range devices have cloaking against the once-standard VG-2.
As mentioned, the Escort Redline Ex also holds the record for one of the longest ranges around, and so does its older brother, the Redline. Both can go as far as more than 14 miles, which is dependent on driving conditions but still impressive nonetheless.
In addition to detecting most common signals such as Ka and X, it can also pick up international K bands such as Gatso, Strelka, and Multaradar CD/CT. What’s more, it can also detect laser signals in all directions.
Performance is at par with the older Redline model, although the Ex edges it out in two areas: false alert filtering and protection against red-light cameras and speed traps.
Furthermore, it boasts a list of useful features including GPS, AutoLearn technology, Bluetooth, Escort Live app connectivity, and IVT filter. What it does lack are Wi-Fi and directional arrows, which are considered luxury additions but are present in the upgraded Redline 360C .

Uniden’s entry, the R3, doesn’t officially claim to be undetectable by Spectre models. However, many tests have proven that it can do so, even with the Spectre Elite.
However, results in our tests have not been consistent. Still, its cloaking abilities against RDDs are still more than what other models can offer. And often, the signals emitted by the R3 have only been identified in very close ranges.
That said, the Uniden R3 was not promoted for its ability to go invisible. Instead, it’s commended as one of the best radar detectors for its great overall performance, together with its non-GPS brother, the Uniden R1.
Many top-of-the-line radar detectors claim things that the Uniden R3 can actually deliver consistently. Among these is the increased sensitivity of the device against radar signals. Its accuracy is also great in both city and highway driving modes, so much so that it has earned the rightful comparison of being as good as the veteran Valentine One.
Another thing that makes the R3 stand out is its impressive range, which can detect even twice as much as other flagship rivals without the hefty price tag. Detection goes at 360 degrees, making alerts more accurate and swift.
The Uniden R3 also excels in filtering false alerts through the adjustment of sensitivity for particular radar signals. Still, the Uniden R3 doesn’t compromise its efficiency despite reducing its sensitivity in the city.
Additionally, Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) systems are also addressed by the Uniden R3, allowing users to have a quiet drive even in the presence of vehicles from Honda, Acura, and GM. It also gives advanced alerts on radar guns, cameras, and speed traps due to a good GPS chipset.
One of Escort Redline’s faults is not being able to maintain its accuracy when the bands are segmented. Still, this is a reliable rig to have on the road.
The Radenso XP may not be at the top of Radenso’s offerings, but it can shield you against RDDs as far as 14+ feet. Specifically, it is completely invisible against the VG-2 and nearly undetectable by the Spectre[ 1 ] Elite.
But like the two previously mentioned products, its capabilities go beyond its ability to be undetected by RDDs. When this radar detector was released, it also boasted of long detection ranges as well as effective filtering of false alerts.
Currently, the long detection range may be off — after all, this has already been eclipsed by newer models. It’s still good enough for the average user though, especially for the price. (For other worth-the-money radar detectors, check out our review of the best radar detectors under $300 .)
In our tests, this device proved great on the highway, with some results tying it with the Valentine One. In other city modes, however, the Radenso XP did not yield as impressive results.
Laser guns can be detected as well, but as with other models, they are not as helpful because such signals are instant and provide no time for adjustment of speed.
But when it comes to suppressing false alerts, the Radenso XP is among the better ones. This is due to the effective adjustment of sensitivity for independent radar bands and segmentation for 10 Ka bands. As most states only use three of these bands for their equipment, all the others can be switched off with little fear of missing genuine threats.
The Radenso XP also has GPS, which makes users aware of the speed and red-light cameras. It can also store 200 locations that could be ignored should the vehicle pass by them.
When it comes to usability, this radar detector can trip up new users. Although the labels are legible and complete on the exterior of the Radenso XP, using it is a different matter. The operation is easier for those with previous experience in radar detectors, and even then, one may need to consult a manual.
There are many features that radar detectors can boast of, but when it comes to undetectability, the true winner is Escort Redline Ex. Aside from its bells and whistles that place it among the best radar detectors, the Redline Ex can hide from almost all common RDDs. Even the toughest Spectre models can’t detect it—something other detectors just can’t guarantee.
While it isn’t a total 100% invisibility, there’s no other radar detector that can match the cloaking abilities of the Redline Ex. So if you want a detector that can truly hide from the law enforcement, the Redline Ex is the best in the market.

What is VG2 and Spectre? Print
Modified on: Thu, 9 Sep, 2021 at 2:48 PM
A VG2 gun is a special device that police can use to identify the presence of a radar detector. It looks like a radar gun, but it does not detect speed. It detects radar detectors. All radio receivers emit a small amount of radio waves. This property is inherent with radio receivers. The same is true of radar detectors, as they too are a radio receiver (microwave receiver). The VG2 gun looks for the radio wave leakage from radar detectors, and can thereby identify if a vehicle is using a radar detector. Radar detectors are illegal in Virginia, The District of Columbia, and most parts of Canada. Radar detectors are also illegal for commercial drivers in all 50 states. If the above does not apply to you, then you need not worry about VG2. Most modern radar detectors incorporate circuitry to be invisible to the VG2 gun, and are therefore "undetectable". It is rare to get a false alert on VG2. Most false alerts occur when another radar detector is nearby, within about 5 car lengths. Spectre is a newer model, made by a different manufacturer. It works in a similar manner to the VG2 gun.
