Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
I was asking myself this same question a couple of weeks ago when my friend mentioned his in conversation. I read a guide on Dig My Ride all about them, so I'll pass on what I learned.
Basically, radar detectors are passive pieces of equipment that can identify when a radar signal is being passed over your vehicle. In contrast to radar jammers, they can't disrupt or interact in any way with this signal, they just detect it.
People tend to use them as a kind of early warning system so that they get notified when the police are checking they're a vehicle with a radar gun to see if they're driving over the speed limit. Motorists who have radar detectors can determine when this is happening and reduce their speed limit accordingly.
Of course, it shouldn't really be necessary as you should always be driving within the speed limit regardless, but that's why people use them.
I hope this helps to answer your question!

SOURCE: Bel RX65 Radar Detector
Call Beltronics tell them you have an RX65 out of warranty. They charge about $65. When I did mine I sent them only the detector and they also set me a new cord & suction cups.
