    +1 I swear I can "sense" cops.

    Radar detectors are a bad idea I think they give to much of a false sense of security.

    Agreed
    Too many people think they are "bullet-proof" so to speak just because they have a box hanging from their windshield that beeps a lot, and half the time it's because of a false alarm.

    Just to be clear...

    Most of the time when the detector goes off...then I see the cop...
    I'm going near the speed limit anyway.

    It won't be any good on laser...
    So on nice sunny days, I don't speed too much. The cops laser doesn't work in the rain or fog though.

    I know many drivers don't want to spend the bucks to get one. Mine has paid for itself 10X or more in just over a year. Not to mention what a ticket or two does to your insurance.

    Anyone who relies on just a radar detector will, no question, get a ticket if they speed.

    A radar detector should be used to support your common sense. It's additional insurance over the blind hill/curve parked cop. It is not the final solution.

    I agree, not only do you have to be extra carefull but be mindfull of everyone else on the road, you are breaking the law when you speed and iam the first to admit i do all the time but if you use your experiance and the V1 you are 98% sure you can get away with it

    Radar detector/jammer

    radar scramblers are just like radar detectors they are legal in some states and not in others. Check out Rockymountainradar.com and check out their selection of jammers and detectors, there is a lot of information on their site. I have a RMR-c430 detector/jammer that has saved me many times. The jammer and detector can be run independantly so if you are in a state that allows detectors but not jammers, the jammer can be turned off. There is no detector or jammer that is fullproof! Be smart.

    I don't quite buy in to the laser feature on detectors... unless it is at no additional cost. Lasers work via line-of-sight so if your detector is picking up the laser, you are likely already busted. The Ka, K freqencies are not line of sight so those give you time to react.

    I remember going 85 in a 65 on the freeway. My passpostx8500 showed laser and I steped on the brakes immediately to 65. The police officer didn't do anything.

    I have the Passport 8500 as well... who knows what happened.

    Either
    1) You're right or
    2) 85 wasn't in his target range (yeah right), or
    3) He didn't correlate your vehicle with the speed reading, or
    4) He was sleeping and had no clue or
    5) He was eating and had no clue

    BTW, my 8500 is beginning to give me false positives... the Laser warning consistently turns on whenever I floor the accelerator. Its annoying!
