The new Beltronics v8 is one of the finest models of RADAR and LIDAR detectors that you could hope to come across in the market today and also an older version of the awesome Beltronics V10 Radar Detector. The installation and operation of this device were so simple for us when we did this Beltronics v8 Review. It works in multiple modes and detects signals at any angle from the front, rear and sides of your vehicle. Easy to read and understand user interfaces warn you with clear messages. In case you are unable to read the messages, you can simply shift to the voice mode which you can never miss out.

Top Features we found while running this Beltronics V8 Review:

  • It works in 3 modes with equal efficiency, namely the High-way, City and auto-scan. You can switch between the modes according to your convenience.
  • The auto-scan mode ensures that all irrelevant external signals are completely filtered out, leaving only genuine RADAR and LIDAR signals.beltronics v8 review of features
