Remote units are weatherproof external mount modules that are installed on the bumper or grill of the vehicles. Models come in various configurations for radar/laser detection and/or radar/laser scrambling.
SWS – Safety Warning System and SA – Safety Alert are alerts for emergency vehicles that transmit these safety signals. These signals transmit on K band. Rocky Mountain Radar models detect all safety warning radar signals, including SWS & SA. We do not decode their information, because we believe that the driver should not be
With the use of a voice chirp, alerts are spoken via a digitally recorded message.
The radar scrambler is passive and the laser scrambler is active.
As of September 1st, 2011 a bill sponsored by Rodney Anderson (WY), Joe Driver(TX), Allen Miller Fletcher(VT), Linda Harper-Brown(?) and Florence Shapiro(TX) -Texas bans use of scramblers on street and highways.
NO, it will NOT alert you to any police radar. It is not designed to provide detection. It will not alert you when it is scrambling. We recommend the use of a radar detector in conjunction with the scramblers
If there is no sound detecting but only at the start up, the unit is in mute. Start up ignores any settings you have it on. No sound at all (even at setup) then you must send the unit in for warranty repair to the manufacturer.
Check the following: 1) The on/off thumbwheel on the side of the unit 2) The fuse in the power cord. (To check the fuse in the power cord, unscrew the silver tip end that plugs into the cigarette lighter. If the fuse is blown, replace with a 2 amp fast burning fuse). 3) The fuse

Make sure you have not put the unit in the mute mode. The unit will stay in mute even if you turn the unit off and back on again. The unit has memory, whatever function you place it in will remain until you change it. Another way of checking if it is on mute is
Rocky Mountain Radar was the first to recognize and design for POP detection two years ago. Rocky Mountain Radar products are 87-100% effective; since we introduced POP detection to the Industry all our competitors now claim to have that ability but they fail to disclose that their best POP detection is less than 50% regardless
The laser scrambling circuit transmits a series of pulses at the same wavelength used by the police laser guns (Lidar), which are electronically timed at about 100 feet apart. When the pulses pass through the windshield they will lose up to 50% of their power. The power output is 6 to 10 times that needed
Several years ago, Cobra Electronics donated $1,000,000 worth of police radar transmitters to the El Paso Independant School Disctrict (EPISD) as ‘safety devices’ If you’re driving in El Paso and approach an EPISD school bus your detector may alert you to K-band. We cannot filter/block this alert as it is the same frequency currently in
It works on all police radar bands (x, k, ka, super wide). Inside the scrambler are 3 parts: 1) A FM chirp generator 2) A mixer diode 3) A dual ridge wave guide antenna When the scrambler is hit by a signal, it will take the signal, and run it through the mixer, add the
Hold down the mute button for 3 seconds this will change the tone. On the C475 select the tone using the menu button. Press and hold the menu button for 5 seconds to go into menu mode. When menu is displayed press and release in step increments until the high or low tone is displayed
Phantom-T, C430, C435, – The “T” light will light up during the start up with a soft chirp sound. When hit by radar/laser the light will not come on again. C475 & C495 – Will display the word “SCRAMBLE” with a soft chirp. Also at the end of start up mode it will display “SCRM
1) Press and Hold the Menu button down. 2) When Menu Mode is displayed, press and release in step increments until the TEST display shows. 3) Then press select button to change the settings. 4) Then Menu mode will exit in a few seconds.
Yes: 1) Clip off the cigarette lighter end and connect the red wire to 12 volts and the other (white) wire to ground. Add an in-line wire fuse to the power side (red wire). The fuses should be a 5 amp/fast burning type. 2) The power cord with the solid white stripe. Connect the white
We do NOT have visor mounts to purchase separate. The only products that do come with Velcro for dash mounting is the KAT products.
Yes, we detect all safety warning radar signals, including SWS & SA the alert signal will be k band. We do not decode their information, because we believe that the driver should not be confused with extra information.
Yes, The Judge, Phantom T, and C495 are 100% undetectable to VG-2, VG-3, Spectre, and Spectre IV. The Judge, Phantom-T and C495 have a Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit that blocks any internal signals from leaking out the antenna.
No, The Judge, Phantom-T and the C495 are not detectable by VG-2 & VG-3. Caution must be used, however, where detectors are not allowed so they are not visually seen. However on the C435 the VG-2 setting must be activated to alert you to VG-2 & VG3.
When you turn on the unit at the end of the start up the power light will flash. This lets you know that the VG-2 detection is activated. On the C475 the VG2 status will display on the screen.
If you enable VG-2, your detector will alert you to the presence of a police detector that scans for radar detectors which may be banned in your state. However, if you do not live in a state where radar detectors are banned, it is recommended to deactivate the VG-2 function as it will help speed
Yes, but that function must be activated for the detector to detect them. The units are not detectable by VG-2/VG-3 when the function is activated.
On Combo units the VG-2 is deactivated. D, DLS and KAT product comes with the VG-2 activated.
No. The combo units ship with the scrambler deactivated. The end customer must activate the scrambler.
Yes, it slows down detection. VG-2 sweeps just like a detector, so to search for VG-2 the detector must stop looking for radar and wait for it to complete its sweep. The amount of time is short – about 1/8th second. While the detector is sweeping, it is not looking for radar. With VG-2 off,
VG-2 is a device police use to detect the leakage from a detector. It is used in states where detectors are banned, and for commercial vehicles. VG-3 is a new unit designed to detect high-end detectors.
We DO NOT sell speakers because of the tamper fee. It is in every manual and on our website under the FAQ’s. We sell accessories ONLY. Any modification done to any unit will result in a tamper fee and may void warranty.
No, a scrambler is a forward scrambler. The combination units detect 360 degrees.The only unit that scrambles 360 degrees is the 8RDSL.
Some states have passed laws that prohibit the use of scramblers; Rocky Mountain Radar has included a switch for consumers to turn the scrambling portion of their units off while traveling through states where they are illegal. We ship all units with the scrambler deactivated. To activate follow the instructions in the the manual.
Yes, your unit will remember the last setting even if powered off or unplugged.
The unit is in Dark Mode. In Dark Mode the unit only shows a small dot moving from left to right. To de-activate Dark Mode just momentarily press the Dim button to select preferred brightness setting.

The FCC regulates all consumer products that transmit or leak radio frequency into the air (Part 15 of the FCC code). Since the scrambler and the combination units do not transmit but merely act as a reflective receiver they are legal under the FCC regulations. Regarding the laser scrambler, there are no Federal laws against
