The first and only 'patch array' radar detector
Adding our HD+ radar antenna to your Stinger System will give you the option of working with an awesome radar detector with unsurpassed results (available where allowed).
A military application
For superior sensitivity and accuracy, we use patch array antennas, similar to those employed in state-of-the-art military applications such as fighter jets. We took that expert technology, developed it for consumer use, and are now the only brand in the radar detector landscape with a military style antenna.
We have been working with our patch array radar antenna for many years and have won one independent test after the other. The Stinger 'Radar Alerting' functionality - as we call it - gives great protection against radar speed traps, providing superior performance against POP and Quick Trigger radar guns.
The thinnest radar antenna. By far.
Our HD+ radar antenna's dimensions are a cool 110mm x 70mm x 10mm. That is so thin that even the most 'filled up' high-performance cars will have space for your Stinger antenna.
Our thin and flat HD+ radar antennas are engineered for superior sensitivity, while being easily concealable in tight spots. Perfect for top tier cars, in which every inch matters.
Accuracy matters. Here's why.
Our Stinger HD+ patch array antenna sees radar in high definition pictures. So do radar antennas used in the military and high-tech industries. But regular antennas do not. Admittedly, we went through the extra effort and cost to develop such a high-tech antenna simply because we are tech nerds and enjoy doing the best we can, but those are not the main reasons. What really drives us is user experience. To illustrate, consider the two radar signal graphs below...
Judging by these graphs, the two radar signals are the same, right? We bet your radar detector would think so, because it would see this...
Lower resolution antennas see lower resolution pictures. And therefore, they would treat these two signals in one and the same way. But the devil is in the detail. Analyzing these two exact same radar signals, this is what your Stinger would see...
It is all about user experience
The consequence of seeing accurate radar pictures is a difference of night and day. The difference between a real alert and a false alert. The difference between being able to rely on your co-pilot and continuously being bothered by it. For example, imagine you get a radar alert that clearly does not come from a radar gun: a false alert. Let’s assume that the product you use has a function that lets you designate this alert as being ‘false’. Most radar detectors do not have such a function (we call this this FalseList®), but let’s assume so anyway. Now, what happens if you run into a genuine speed check radar alert that produces a signal that rudimentarily ‘looks’ the same as the one that you have put in your product's memory as being false? Right. You will not get an alert.
But this goes even further, in a big way. Only truly accurate antennas like Stinger's can swiftly recognize and alert to modern low power radars. Most radar detectors do not even get near being able to do that. That’s why we use high tech components and build patch array radar antennas. For accuracy and reliability. And ultimately, for user experience.
