When reviewing K40’s Platinum100 Portable Radar and Laser Detector, Popular Mechanics said:

“Almost all radar detectors share the same, very annoying flaw: You have to reach over to use the controls on the hardware, which is usually mounted on your windshield, whenever you need to adjust a setting. The K40 Platinum100 makes the issue much more manageable by giving you a remote control….”

The Platinum100 is available with or without the remote control and comes with the industry’s first and most comprehensive ticket-free guarantee. If you receive a speeding ticket within the first year of ownership, K40 pays for it!
