Default Spectre IV, Spectre IV + now on sale in the U.S.

Applied Concepts Inc. today made it official: the new Spectre IV RDD, and Spectre IV + RDD is now being made available for sale to U.S. law enforcement.

The latest Spectre IV and Spectre IV + RDDs incorporates a number of enhancements over their previous Spectre III models. Exclusive to the Spectre IV + is the automatic reduction in target range of the exceptionally noisy BG Tech radar detectors (private-labeled as Cobra, Radio Shack and Early Warning models, among others).

Now instead of detecting them at 5,000 feet and driving the officer nuts with an interminably long audio/visual alert, the Spectre IV + singles out these radar detectors and dials back sensitivity. This translates into several hundred feet of range, more than enough, and a much briefer alert. Sensitivity and target range of other radar detector models are unaffected.

Both the Spectre IV and IV + have upgraded software enabling them to detect all U.S. radar detectors save for the BEL STi Driver and presumably, the flagship models of the BEL STi-R and Escort Passport 9500ci, remote model scheduled to appear soon.

In my test of the prototype Spectre IV and Spectre IV + RDDs last year I also learned that the Escort Passport 9500i is practically undetectable as well (30 feet). But those driving with any other model are definitely at risk.

Expect to see the Spectre IV + in Virginia soon, augmenting their existing Spectres. The Spectre IV targets state highway patrol commercial vehicle enforcement (CVE) units in the other 49 states, where radar detectors are legal. CVE units monitor big rigs and other commercial vehicles in which radar detector use is still illegal.

Your just about several months late on this one Craig. Spectre IV and IV+ have been in use in VA for several months now. I myself have seen them.

Virus,

Perhaps in limited tests by VA Troopers prior to general release?

I believe the Spectre IV + only became "officially" available, as CP indicated, very recently.

I have an extremely reliable source that works for the State Police. He was in charge of testing them. They have been in use in VA for several months. I myself can verify 2 in the Northern VA area. I see one of them from time to time during my daily commute to work. I was told that 50 were purchased before August 31st, 2007 with a promise for more in the coming months. I wasn't given any future numbers or dates. A poster on another board was actually given a RD ticket in the Roanoke, VA area. There of course is no way to verify this.
