Radar detectors can be incredibly helpful on the road, but the good ones get pretty pricey. Right now, though, the Uniden DFR7 Super Long Range Radar Detector with GPS is on sale for $129 from BuyDig.
Normally $399.99, you can save literally hundreds on this device when you use promo code DRIVE at checkout. Plus, shipping is free. There’s no specified end date to the sale, so we should assume it’s for a limited time only.
Additionally, there’s a limit of one coupon code per order. So if you, for whatever reason, wanted to buy 12 long-range radar detectors at a discount, you’d have to place separate orders. Maybe you’re getting them as holiday gifts for the whole family, we’re not here to judge.
For those not in the know, radar detectors like this one alert drivers about red-light cameras and speed cameras, as well as speed-regulated roads. The radar sets off an alarm when activated, so the driver can make sure their speed is appropriate.
The GPS functionality of this particular product lets you lock out non-relevant alarms. Plus, they’ll stay locked, since it remembers locations. It can also calculate your speed, which allows you to manage alarms so none go off at your chosen threshold.
Before you make a purchase, however, be sure to check whether or not your state allows you to use a device like this.
Most American states and districts allow radar detectors in passenger vehicles, but not commercial vehicles. However, they’re expressly illegal in Washington D.C. and Virginia.
But regardless of the gizmos in your vehicle, drive safe, and always be aware of your speed while traveling.
