Editorial Review
The Pocket Radar Personal Speed Radar device, the world's first pocket-sized speed radar, lets users become a part of the action through a variety of uses.

Measuring just 2.3 by 4.7 by 0.8 inches (W x H x D) and weighing only 4.5 ounces (including batteries), the Pocket Radar offers professional-grade radar speed measurement that fits in your palm or your pocket. Innovative technology allows you to measure the speed of anything from a fastball down the middle to a race car barreling down the straightaway with remarkable accuracy (within one mile per hour). By combining Pocket Radar's proprietary Digital Signal Processing algorithms and state-of-the-art intelligent target acquisition techniques, the Pocket Radar is able to offer accurate speed measurement in a device a fraction of the size of traditional speed radar guns.

Simple one-button operation is intuitive and user-friendly, and the unit powers up in less than one second. The Pocket Radar's slim design, along with durable materials and construction, make it an ideal tool for both professionals and everyday consumers in a wide range of applications, from coaches clocking baseball pitch speeds to athletes seeking improved performance to racing fans looking to enhance their viewing experience.

Leading news outlets and consumer agencies have endorsed the device, as well, with The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) having named the Pocket Radar an "Innovation Honoree in Personal Electronics," and Popular Mechanics magazine selecting the Pocket Radar as a 2010 "Editor's Choice Award recipient." The Pocket Radar has also been featured on ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today Show."

How it Works
The Pocket Radar is a Doppler speed radar system, which works by emitting a small pulse of radio waves in an invisible focused beam, similar in shape to a flashlight beam. When the radio wave hits an object that is moving toward or away from the Pocket Radar, a small amount of the wave reflects back. The Pocket Radar, in turn, receives the reflected radio wave and compares it to the original transmitted radio wave, calculates the difference between the two waves, and displays the object's speed--all of which happens almost instantly.

In creating the world's most compact speed radar device, all aspects of Doppler radar technology have been reassessed, re-engineered, and rebuilt by Speed Radar technicians to achieve a unique product that delivers full-sized performance in a miniaturized package. Compared to standard, bulky radar guns, the Pocket Radar is a fraction of the size and weight, and further boasts:
  • Easy one-button operation with point and shoot interface
  • No calibration needed
  • Portable design with rugged casing
  • Memory recall of up to 10 previous speeds


Technical Specifications
  • Measures 2.3 by 4.7 by 0.8 inches (W x H x D)
  • Weighs 3.7 ounces without batteries and 4.5 ounces with batteries
  • Battery life of more than 10,000 readings on two AAA alkaline batteries
  • Range under good radar conditions (results may vary): baseball from 120 feet and car from 0.5 miles

    The Pocket Radar was recently recognized with The Consumer Electronics Show's (CES) "Innovation Honoree in Personal Electronics" award.
  • 24.125 GHz operating frequency
  • Measures from seven to 375 miles per hour
  • Accurate to /- one mph
  • Operating temperature range of 20 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Recommended storage temperature range of -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit


Warranty
The Pocket Radar Personal Speed Radar unit includes a limited one-year manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Here is what people are saying about the Pocket Radar Personal Speed Radar Device (PR 1000)
1 Star Rating  "Would have been laughable, if it hadn't cost me so much" 
- Reviewed By Jim
I bought this, influenced by a lot of 5 star reviews on this and other sites, which now seem to be placed by shill reviewers. The product doesn't work the same way twice in a row. I used it in youth baseball. You'll get a pitch that reads, for example, 60 mph, and the next read, on an almost identical pitch, is 12 mph. I would not recommend this device to my friends.
 
5 Star Rating  "well done!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Vienna, Virginia United States
Reflecting other reviewers, the only question I ask myself is whether I really needed to buy this product. I think I did so because the idea of putting radar into such a small unit simply hit my "gadget" or perhaps "neat toy" interest. I do not use it a lot, as I am not a baseball coach, auto racing enthusiast, or such. I have used it to check the speed of cars coming into my neighbourhood or coming towards me on the highway. It seems very accurate, works simply with one button to activate, saves recent measurements, and fits within a very sturdy and well designed case. Though I have not had it very long, my overall impression is that it is an intelligently designed and constructed device and, in the right hands, would be useful.
 
5 Star Rating  ""It' is what it is" &" is what it does"" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
OK, Well I got this unit for one purpose and that was baseball!!!!! I coach and it is a super great unit to aid in pitching and even bat speed. It does what it's supposed to do. It's not a "Swiss Army Radar Unit" one reviewer seems to have wanted it to do something more. It does one thing, checks speed and it does this well. If your buying it to pretend your a police officer, yes you'll use it a few times and get bored. If that's the case spend your money more wisely.
By the way "I DO NOT" work for this company but I do give this unit 5 stars for the mobility, size and accuracy. Yes, it is very accurate for my needs. If you have the need for an actual compact radar unit to check speed I'd suggest buying it. If not then it's your choice on what you spend your money on!!!
 
4 Star Rating  "Needs built in digital camera and download capabilities" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
Using the Pocket Radar, I was pleasantly surprised to find that 90% of the people driving through our neighborhood drive within 5 MPH of the speed limit. However, I did clock a pizza delivery kid going 15 MPH over the speed limit. I wish the Pocket Radar had a digitial camera that could photograph an object as well as measure its speed. A picture of the speeding pizza delivery kid with his speed emblazoned on it sent to his boss might slow him down in the future.

The device needs a built in digital camera and download capabilities. Otherwise, it is just an expensive toy.
 
4 Star Rating  "Very Accurate, Unrivaled in Size" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
I ordered a Pocket Radar direct from the manufacturer. Here is my experience with the unit and with the company. I felt compelled to make this my first Amazon review, as this product is so new, there are few reviews out there for potential purchasers to read.

I read the reviews here of the Pocket Radar, and like others, I was a little suspicious of so many 5 star reviews posted within such a short time frame.
I decided to go straight to the source for an answer, so I e-mailed the Pocket Radar group.

I was quite surprised when I received a long, personal reply the following day from Chris Stewart, who turned out to be the president of Pocket Radar.

In his e-mail Chris even mentioned that he is usually the one answering the phones at Pocket Radar as well. Just as he said, when I called the toll-free number for Pocket Radar, it was Chris who promptly answered. I spent the next 40 minutes or so talking to Chris about the design and development of the unit...and about the reviews here on Amazon.

After speaking with Chris, I felt confident that the reviews were probably legitimate here, and the dates coincided with the initial roll-out of the Pocket Radar. In my super sleuthing, I did notice that a review here from Demi Basiliades, who has an association with Pocket Radar according to his LinkedIn page. Chris explained to me that Demi was among a few people who contacted Pocket Radar with interest in testing the device and providing reviews. Regardless, the man running the company seemed quite honest and straight-forward with me, so after our conversation, I provided him my credit card number and purchased my own unit to try.

The Pocket Radar is roughly the size of the average smartphone out there, slightly thicker and heavier due to all the electronics that must be crammed inside. The unit felt very durable, no cheap, squeaky plastic here. The display is large and easy to read as long as there's adequate lighting. The display was very simple with huge numbers and a small indicator to let you know when the radar is currently transmitting. Although I certainly didn't try to damage my unit, Chris of Pocket Radar told me they had performed durability tests by tossing the unit from the roof of a building.

There's no learning curve to using the Pocket Radar *itself.* The big red button is self-explanatory in my opinion. Press and release the button to get a speed reading within just a second. Hold down the red button if you want to continuously shoot radar and receive updated readings over and over. The smaller button serves as a recall to pull up your last readings.

Although the Pocket Radar is very intuitive, you will need a rudimentary understanding of how radar works in order to use any radar device. The FAQ on [...] is very thorough and will answer just about any question you may have. In a perfect situation (like cop speed traps) you'll be facing your target head-on or positioned to shoot the back of the target as it moves away from you. The larger the angle you put between you and your target, the more error you introduce into your measurements. If you shoot at the side of a target, you're going to get a 0 on the display or close to it...same as any radar device.

Unlike the other reviewer, I try to avoid cops with their own radar guns, so I can't compare it to LEO radar. However, my car has a digital speedometer. If you aim the Pocket Radar at a stationary object while traveling in a moving vehicle, you get the speed of the vehicle. Using this method multiple times over a period of 2 weeks, the Pocket Radar proved to be very accurate, returning readings exactly matching my speedometer or measuring only 1 MPH different ever.

The unit takes 2 AAA batteries, which are in the box. I used rechargeable NIMH batteries instead, and they worked just fine. Even using the unit taking continuous readings, I didn't manage to drain the batteries down below 2 of 4 bars. The batteries are easy to change. The battery door just slides off. The door fits on snugly, and there are no little tabs to break off like the battery doors on television remotes.

Being the geek I am, I was excited when I saw videos of the Pocket Radar at CES. I didn't really have a *need* for the Pocket Radar, but I really wanted to see how I could use this technology now that it has been shrunk down to cell phone size. I used the Pocket Radar at youth baseball games, autocross events, and for anything else I could think of that moved. I measured my dogs. I measured my nephews on bikes and on foot (they excitedly volunteered!).

I also finally got some closure on just how dangerous I believe the blind curve is in front of my house. Having totaled a car before even leaving my driveway due to a speeding State Farm Insurance Agent in a Ford F150 with no time to react, I always wanted some validation that people drive too fast in my neighborhood. Well, the first few minutes I stood by my mailbox one afternoon, I clocked cars: 34, 31, 33...no big deal. Then I say hello to a couple walking their dogs in front of my house, and BAM a Dodge Ram comes flying around the corner. He has to hit his brakes and swerve to the middle of the road to avoid clipping these people. The Pocket Radar read 54 MPH! The Pocket Radar would be the perfect tool for concerned citizens looking to collect data to show the need for speed bumps or other measures. On a side note, the Pocket Radar operates on K-Band, so a few speed demons with radar detectors slowed down immediately when they came across my speed trap.

There were just a couple improvements I'd like to see in future revisions:

The red button feels mushy with little button travel, making it difficult to tell if I had really activated the radar. It'd be much nicer with a firmer feel and a tactile click when pressed.

At night or in dimly lit stadiums, the device was useless without a backlight. I spent way too much time trying to shine my cell phone screen onto the Pocket Radar display so I could try to make out the numbers. The display looks ripe for an electroluminescent backlight.


Overall, I think this is a great product, being a first release from a new company. It has the accuracy to be rated as a police radar, and if the company ever follows through with required certification, I'm sure the units could be sold for quite a few more dollars to law enforcement. The case is durable and feels good in the hand. You can easily slip this in your pocket or bag, so there's no excuse for leaving it at home if you think you could use it. I believe the unit said it was made in Korea, but the Pocket Radar company is based in California, and you speak directly to the president of the company when you call their support line. It really sounded like a great group of smart guys are behind this product, so if you have any issues, I'm sure they'll take care of you.
 
5 Star Rating  "This is a very good tool for baseball" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Granada Hills Ca.
I've had the pocket radar for 3 weeks now and Wow. There are so many uses for it. We have used it to set the speed for our pitching machine at practices, and to check the speeds of the pitchers throwing a bullpen, I have used at games to see how hard the pitchers of both teams are throwing and no one knows what you are doing because it looks like a phone or a camera . It can be used a lot at practice to check the runners speeds and to see who slows down getting to 1st, and to see the speed of the throws from short to 1st. I have used it to check the speed of the ball coming off the bat when my sons are doing tee work or short toss, that part takes a little practice of timing when you push and release the button. If you want to compare it to the more expensive radar guns like Jugs or Stalker, with those radar guns you pull the trigger and hold it when you release it will give you the peak speed and plate speed. If you try to compare them side by side it all depends on your reaction time of pushing the button and releasing if you want the peak speed. I have found my teenage sons can get within 1 mile hr. You will get the correct speed but it might not be peak or plate speed. I have old man reaction time. Now just out of curiosity when I have been out driving and see one of the Pole-Mount Radar-Speed Signs I will hold up the pocket radar and the readings are the same of both of them if I'm the only car going by it.
