Product Information

Platinum Performance with Laser Defuser Confidence. 

Along with the finest in Ticket-Free performance, K40 takes your safety seriously. Now, for the first time ever, you have the option to control your portable radar and laser detector with a professionally installed expert controller.  This innovation allows you to customize and control your radar detector while keeping your eyes on the road.

K40’s Platinum100 portable radar and laser detector is also ready to connect to your professionally installed Laser Defusers giving you the confidence of true protection from laser speeding tickets and audible and visual alerts through your Platinum100 so you know exactly when you are being targeted by and jamming police laser.

The Latest Technology for Long Range Protection

The Platinum100 includes engineering enhancements which will inspire confidence that you are driving with trustworthy speeding ticket protection.

  • New LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) radar receiver technology that increases range and sensitivity
  • A more powerful CPU for a more responsive system and greater customization options
  • USB updateable for future expansion

GPS Features

The Platinum100 offers you full customizable GPS technology features such as:

  • Mark to Mute: Mute audible warnings of non-police radar locations you regularly travel past
  • Mark to Alert: Mark locations to alert such as dangerous intersections, speed traps, school zones, and red-light cameras
  • Speed Monitor: Track your speed without taking your eyes off the road and be alerted if you exceed your selected speed
  • Quite Ride: Mute all alerts under a pre-selected speed. Eliminates alerts when you are driving at or near the posted speed limit 
  • Auto Filter: Sensitivity automatically adjusts to the optimum setting based on your vehicle's speed. This "set it and forget it" option means you always have just the right amount of protection. Less sensitivity at lower speed means less false alerts, and increased sensitivity at higher speeds means more time to slow down

Advanced Filtering

The Platinum100 is packed with advanced filtering technology to make it the quietest, most dependable radar and laser detector.

  • K-Band Filter: Automatically rejects false alerts from radar-based safety features like Collision Avoidance and Lane Departure Warning from other vehicles (including your own)
  • Traffic Sensor Filter: Rejects alerts from traffic flow sensors usually encountered during highway driving
  • Ka-Band Filter: Enables filtration of non-police Ka-Band radar signals, e.g. other radar detectors and satellite broadcast bands

Radar Band Selectivity

The Platinum100 offers you the option to choose specific band frequency ranges that you wish to be alert to. Make the drive even quieter by honing in on specific frequency ranges used only by a police officer's radar gun.

  • K-Band Narrow/Wide/Extended: Allows you to customize the frequency range of K-Band radar signals your system scans and alerts for
  • Ka-Band Narrow/Wide: Allows you to customize the frequency range of Ka-Band radar signals your system scans and alerts for

Optional K40 Laser Defuser® Protection

Become invisible to police laser guns. The Platinum100 allows you to plug in your professionally installed Laser Defusers so that audible and visual alerts appear on your Platinum100 display. 

Optional Wireless or Hardwired Remote Control

The Platinum100 is the first portable radar detector built with your safety in mind.  You now have the option to control your Platinum100 with remote control. You can purchase the Platinum100 with or without a hand-held remote control, or special order a hard-wired, back-lit, Expert remote control option and have your retailer custom install it into your vehicle.

Does this radar detector have 360 coverage?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2022
  Thanks for your question. The specifications, features, and reviews of the K40 Platinum 100 do not include any information regarding 360 degree sensitivity. The Kicker K40 Platinum 360 Dual Receiver Radar Detector includes a separate rear mounted receiver for 360 degrees of coverage.
Can this detect a drone?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2022
  Thanks for your question. A drone radar frequency would have to be within the operating frequencies of the K40 for it to be detected.
How far can see this radar?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2022
  Thanks for your question. Many factors determine the warning time and distance, including the strength of the radar signal, direction and location of the radar gun, and where the patrol officer is sitting. An exact measurement of warning time and distance is not specified.
