Default What radar detector?

I am a fairly good driver, Ive gotten my fair share of tickets and I dont want anymore, so what radar detectors are you guys running? I dont need the best, I need something simple that just works.

I run the twoeyes-inmyhead but it kind of sucks. my dad has a RMR (rocky mountain radar) something or other and it sucks just as much as mine only it is more annoying.

so those are the ones not to use. GL

If you like to speed, there is only ONE radar detector worth having

Valentine One.

Mike was an employee at Cincinnati Microwave (Escort) before starting his own company. CM folded but was restarted locally with new owners in West Chester OH.

Mike's shop is in Blue Ash.

Beltronics STI driver. Expensive, but works incredibly well, even beat out the V1 in a lot of tests I've seen online.

http://www.beltronics.com/sti.html

Completely undetectable, which is great if you live in a state their illegal in. I just think its nifty. Solid magnesium casing..

V1 is Magnesium also, and they have an upgrade program.
I don't know about the present VG2 guns, but 3 years ago I asked a police officer friend of mine in Europe (where they're illegal) to test it and see if they could detect it. They put the V1 1 foot away from the radar detector detector and it wasn't detected...

Plus the V1 has arrows that tell you where the threat is. That's THE BEST FEATURE, and it's Patented...)

I've got a BEL 985 and it's saved my ass 5-6 times. I'd recommend a higher end BEL, Passport (escort), or as everyone else said the V1.

I live in a tiny town, so their technology isn't that advanced...you might wanna check and see what the locals are using.

Around here Ka is pretty much it.

I just checked the V1 web site. I could upgrade my 6 year old V1 to the latest spec for 85$... who else can do that???
It's 400$ + 40 for the concealed display... Go read about it on their website and you'll understand the value of getting a good detector.

The Escort 8500 X50 is a great radar detector. It has comparable range to the Valentine and picks up K, X Ka, Laser and Pop. Don't get me wrong, the valentine is awesome, but in Houston radar detectors get stolen faster than you can blink. Alarm or not. So I just couldn't see myself spending so much on something that is so likely to get stolen.

Professionaly installed K40s used to run about $1000. Plus, if the cop suspects you have one where it's illegal, they'll rip the car apart to find it...

That's why I have a V1 with a concealed display. I put it low on the windshield near the wipers and can take it down very fast.
If you get pulled over where a detector is not allowed, put it down your or your passenger's pants and plug something else in the cig lighter... It's harder for cops to search a person for speeding than to search the vehicle...

Cobra 9500 i think, like $129.99 at sears. Works good as hell, like i'll pick up a cop a few hundred yards before I see him. But really radars are just an alarm to let you know your about to get a ticket lol. Unless you coming around a corner or hill

95&#37; of all radar detectors u buy on you dept. store shelf dont work waste of money. if your going over 85mph slow down if you go that fast anyway the cop will get you befor you got a chance to slow down.

moral of the story DONT SPEED. if u do i hope the cop gets ya!

your not the only dumbass on the road! if you wanna put your life in danger go for it jump off a bridge or somthing. dont put others in danger thats just downright stupid and selfish.

i hate it dumba$$ ricers come flying up on my a$$ and wiz around me like the freeway was the indy 500, 75% of the time my 1 1/2 year old daughter is in the back seat. there is a time and place for speeding, racing and car asshatchery its called the track. 10-25 bucks most places, and you can drive as fast and stupidly as u want.
