Q:

can I use the radar without connecting it to my i-phone.

stanley m.  asked on  Mar 26, 2013

A:

The app can work on its own and the detector can work on its own, but the whole system works best when the detector and app are paired.

Q:

Can this be used just as a radar detector by itself, or does it have to be paired to a phone to hear the alerts?

Michael K.  asked on  Mar 25, 2013

A:

The iPhone or Android app must be downloaded in order to change settings on the detector. Once the detector is set up how you’d like it can run on its own without a smartphone. You will get audio alerts of all radar and laser signals. If you run the app while driving you get GPS based alerts as well as Radar/Laser. These include AURA alerts, user reports, and Live Community Radar. As mentioned in the previous email, if the app is running in the background you still get all of these GPS based alerts.

Q:

how accurate is this product and is there an app that has to download to your smartphones

Marvis B.  asked on  Mar 25, 2013

A:

iRadar is a high-performance detector that detects all radar bands (X, K, Ka, and POP) and all laser/LIDAR types. Detection range depends on the type of signal they are detecting, the environment, the number of cars on the road, how it’s mounted, and many other factors. GPS based alerts, such as Red Light Cameras, User Reported Live Police, and Community Radar Reports are very accurate and distance varies based on your speed to give you approximately 30 seconds warning.

Yes, you get the audible alerts when the app is in the background.
