I bought this item two years ago on buy.com, and after using it a few months I guess I felt it wasn't necessary. Lately, with all the holiday traffic and increased police surveillance, I thought I'd start using it again. For some reason, the car plug no longer stays in place in the jack, so the detector constantly loses power. That said, just when you think you're protected while driving at highway-plus speeds, I look up and see a dead display! Then I noticed a cracked plastic housing around the jack; the entire 12V power receptacle within the unit disintegrated! I opened the unit to remove the cheap plastic remnants, and then soldered the wires in place (sans plug) ... and I'm back in business. This is a cheaply made unit, and based on this experience I would not buy another Rocky radar detector again.

Cheap and Trustworthy

I don't understand people expect Radar detectors to be perfect. They are designed to be like a third eye and to catch things that you miss. This one is so reliable, it saved my wallet more than 5 times. It detected signals not only from the sides only but from behind also in short distance and saved me from tickets. Read More

Product Overview

The RMR-D240 is a completely integrated radar/laser detector which responds not only to all the radar guns in use today, including “Stalker”, but also to the other latest development in speed monitoring devices- the laser gun.

This model provides distinct visual and audible alerts to warn you of the presence of X, K, and all kinds of Ka Band radar guns in the front and rear of you. This model also provides the benefit of ‘undetectability’ by alerting you to the presence of VG-2 (‘The Radar Detector detector’).

It also incorporates a new safety feature - Safety Alert(SA) and Safety Warning System(SWS). This safety feature warns you of the presence of potential road hazards by detecting signals from safety radar transmitting devices.

Federal and Local Regulations:

The FCC passed the Communications Act in 1934 to give all citizens the right to receive all types of radio transmissions. The same radio frequencies used by police radar are also used by other devices, such as automatic door openers, burglar alarms, and some amateur radio equipment. Since the RMR-D240 is just a radio receiver tuned to a specific portion of the public radio spectrum, it is protected under this act.

Some local, state, and federal regulations may prohibit the use of this detection device. Please check with authorities regarding the use of this device before operating it.
