The Judge 2.0 can detect police radar up to 5 miles away (without annoying false alarms). The Judge 2.0 (the best radar detector on planet Earth) gives you plenty of warning to avoid a ticket.
In addition to smart detection technology, The Judge 2.0 has an Early Warning Discriminator (EWD) andTraffic Rejection Sensor (TSR) to eliminate more false signals.
Rocky Mountain Radar's scrambling technology (Radar & Laser) makes your car invisible to police speed detection equipment. It's so effective, we will pay if you get a ticket.
Rocky Mountain Radar's signature technology is radar scrambling. It would be easy to jam a police radar gun by transmitting a powerful signal, but it would also be illegal...so we came up with a legal way to scramble the computer inside a police radar gun.
Police radar is a simple radar system that sends out a continuous RF (Radio Frequency) signal. The police radar is an auto-dyne transceiver which means that it transmits a signal and mixes the return signal with itself to determine the Doppler shift (the amount of frequency change caused by bouncing off a moving target).
The Doppler shift is different for each frequency band the police radar operates on and proportional to the speed of the target. There are three radar bands that the police are allowed to operate in the USA. These are X-band, K-band and Ka-band. Ka-band is very wide and more difficult to detect using a police radar detector.
Because a police radar system must send and receive an RF signal, we can detect it, detect which band is being used…and much more. Click the Radar Scrambling Technology tab to read more
Since detecting RF signals far in advance is a piece of cake for us, we can also add information to their signal to confuse Police Radar Speed Detectors.
A Police Radar Gun needs to get the same reading multiple times, sequentially, in order to display a valid speed to the officer operating the radar gun. The additional information that we add to their return signal makes it virtually impossible for the Police Radar Gun to get an accurate reading. This is why roadside trailers may display your speed even while you’re scrambling radar. They simply display all detected signals translated to speed.
Police LIDAR (Laser Radar) is a distance measuring device. The unit sends out a pulse of infrared light and measures how long it takes to strike an object and return. Taking this time and multiplying it by the speed of light gives one the round trip distance [distance times 2]. If the LIDAR then sends out a second pulse and measures that distance it can determine if the target is moving and what its speed is. If pulse one distance is D1 and second pulse is D2 and the LIDAR sends out the second pulse T1 seconds after the first then the objects speed can be calculated as the change of distance over time or (D1-D2)/T1. Since the LIDAR knows when the pulses go out and measures the distance for each pulse it has all the information it needs to determine target speed.
Of course, there is always the chance for interference so modern LIDAR contains a computer and sends out multiple pulses for each target measurement…often as many as 50 pulses. The computer then samples the data to develop an accurate measurement of speed for the target.
Don't worry, you don't need to understand all of that...we do. Click on the Laser Scrambling Technology tab to see what else we can do.
There are two methods that are used to try to interfere with the accurate reading of speed by LIDAR. The first, used by our competitors, is to simply try to overpower the unit by broadcasting a very large amount of infrared light. This takes a lot of energy so the jammer must first detect the Laser pulse to know when to turn on the power and frequently reacts too late to be effective. Of course, simple filtering of the incoming signals makes these types of jammers relatively ineffective.
The second method, employed ONLY by Rocky Mountain Radar, is much more effective but more costly to manufacture. This method creates infrared pulses virtually identical to those transmitted by the LIDAR. This requires much lower power transmission and is safer for the driver. Rocky Mountain Radar’s Laser scrambler creates 40 nano-second pulses every 125 nanoseconds (30 - 50 feet) to thoroughly confuse the LIDAR resulting in no speed being displayed. Since this pulse train is continuous, there is no need for detection prior to activation greatly enhancing the probability of effectively confusing the LIDAR! This method makes Laser Speed measurement both ‘near-sighted’ (cannot ‘see’ pulses beyond 125 feet) and overwhelms the computer with confusing data so it cannot determine an accurate speed.
We have had Rocky Mountain Radars for msny years. I'm not sure the exact year I purchaded my first unit. I believe it was during the mid 80's. At thst time I drove over the road hauling cattle. We were expected to get the livestock delivered fast and alive. I virtually lived in that truck averaging over 250,000 miles per year. It seemed like "Bull Racks" were a prized catch for law enforcement. My Phazer never let me down The only traffic stop was by a city cop from a town of which I drove through on.a regular basis. The cop pulled me over wanting to know what I was doing to his radar. Mysteriously seemed to stop working every time I drove through his town on I-35. This was snd continues to be a radar trap 24/7. You csn always count on knowing a cop is lurking in the shadows. After several years of driving a truck, I switched jobs and began working in the oilfield. My job has me averaging well over 100,000 miles per year driving my own pickup. This job has me working out of state the majority of the time. Pennsylvania has a reputation for picking on out of state vehicles. With my RMR units....I don't give them a reason to pull me over. I have owned multiple RMR products and honestly feel naked without one in my vehicles. I have given RMRs as Christmas gifts in yesrs past to my adult sons whom also work within the oilfields across America. We put on a lot of miles traveling across the country and encounters a lot of communities out to cash in on out of state vehicles. My wife madethe comment "You bought these just so you can speed". That is not true. In Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia as with most of the states up in the north east. They commonly have speed limits on the open back roads highways at 40 mph or less and vigorously enforce those limits. My RMRs are reminders to keep a very close eye on exactly just what my speed is. A couple of miles per hour over and that's the gonna get you a ticket. I have RMR units in every vehicle we own. They have never let me down.
"Got one of these for my wife. She travels to and from work daily on the Interstate. She absolutely loves it. I have been with her on occasion and was amazed at how early it detected radar. It was a good two miles and over a hill! I will be getting one of these for my truck soon. Excellent product!"
"I have mine and love it. Wouldn't leave home without it. It has already saved my many tickets."
"The Judge radar detector is the best product of any radar detector,scrambler on the market by far!!!!!!No false alarms!!Well worth the money to save you getting tickets costing you more in the long run!!"
"The town where I live is a low revenue area so the cops just love to run with radar on. They also love to use laser. I can't even begin to tell u how many times I have been saved by the judge already saving me hundreds of dollars. Over 300' away I have never been caught speeding ever in almost 20yrs using rmr products. I bought the new passport a year ago went on a trip and had a ticket 5min from home. Went immediately back to rmr and never had one since and I am always driving for work. Absolutely the Best!"
"Best Ever!! Almost no false alerts, works better than any detector I've ever had. Picks them up way in advance.."
"I’ve been using these products since the late 80’s had lots of encounters it works well you need to learn it before you put it to work"
