In pretty much all first world countries the purchase, ownership, and use of a Stinger is legal. Even in those countries where radar detectors have been banned. The reason for this is that a Stinger is a car computer, not a radar detector. At every Stinger’s core you will find a robust computer brain that manages and orchestrates all the Stinger apps, making a Stinger every bit as much a computer as your Mac, PC, or iPhone.
Legality of Apps
Just like with any other computer, while the general use of your Stinger is legal, depending on where you are, the use of certain specific apps may not be. Therefore, before using such Stinger apps as Radar Alerting, Laser Alerting, and LaserShield, please make sure you do so where allowed. There are even some overzealous countries where they do not allow the use of GPS Alerting (Stinger calls that SpotList Alerting) for fixed speed traps. Yes, really. Big Brother, right?!
Equipping your Stinger with Radar Alerting
Please note that all Stinger apps have been developed for use where allowed. Specifically for those drivers who use their Stinger in countries where Radar Alerting is legal, the Stinger is equipped with a function to delete the Radar Alerting app at the push of a button. This allows our users to abide by, seemingly, conflicting regional and international rules and regulations. Upon returning to a country or region where Radar Alerting is allowed, you can re-install the Radar Alerting app via your Stinger Desktop app on your Mac or PC.
Installment of all Stinger components is legal
