Radar Detectors

Might be in the market for a radar detector and figured I would see (if any) fellow 3.7 ME supporters use one. Any recommendations or thoughts?

Disclosure: I always drive very safe, cautiously, and respectful. I would rather not see comments about how I should be driving and how I don't need one. Plenty of people use radar detectors and do not have bad driving habits. Just the peace of mind would benefit me.

Thanks for your help, guys/gals!

I have a whistler. I think it's the XPR. Whatever the best model is before you get into GPS is the one I got. It works very well, maybe too well. My KA band is always going nutz. I tried all the settings and it still go's off almost constantly. I ended up turning off the KA band sensor and now it is much better. That would be my only complaint... I looked at lots of reviews and found that the whistler products were often far better units for the $. I think I paid just under $200

I use an old Beltronics that I have had for years

It runs on two AA batteries and is at least 25 plus years old and still works great. I dropped it a few times and now I just have it sitting on my dash. I'll probably get a new one someday but as long as this thing picks up the radar way before I see it I don't really need to.

I also drive like a sissy and never ever go over the speed limit.

Thanks for the quick response! There's a Groupon right now for either the Cobra SSR50 for $35 or the Cobra SSR90 for $45. Some quick research told me that the SSR90 might be the route to go... hmmmmmm

I have an escort s2. The newer s3 is out now. I love mine though. Cordless, range on highways is just jaw dropping city can see around buildings and 1/4 miles at a time. Bright led and came with a case. Love mine. Got it for $200 off a friend still in the shrink wrap.

If your going to get a radar, I'd get a quality one. Those cheap Cobras don't really work that well and have many false alarms (based on what I've read). I'd shoot for an Escort model or possibly a Valentine-1. I personally have the Valentine-1 and it is seriously the best 300$ investment I've made. Saved my a$$ a number of times. The radar always goes off miles before you even see the cop (literally). They are a bit pricy but I am sure you could find a good deal on eBay/craigslist.

I went on a road trip to Quebec, NB & PEI.
Got stopped at the border of Maine & Quebec, my faithful Beltronics in my arm rest. Customs searched my car, looked at the detector & said ' $500 fine or even having one of these turned on or not!' I assured him that I would not be using it... He let me go.
As you can have your car confiscated on the spot for going so many kmph over the limit. I can see a good reason for a black market in them.

I bought a Beltronic pro500 works great has GPS so you can lock out false signals
and it remembers the exact spot , pretty cool , not cheap at around 450 $
but well worth it , driving around town this thing NEVER goes off unless there is
a cop around as I locked out all the false alarms . Jamers don't work don't waste your
money . Plus you can download speed trap locations etc via hooking it up to your
computer. This thing also senses your speed so it switches form city mode to
highway mode by itself amazing unit.

cobra

I bought a cheap cobra 9 band and ill tell you what it works great. Spent maybe 30-40$ on it. Picks up radar at a decent distance, enough to slow down before getting clocked. Honestly depends on how crazy of a driver you are.

If i have to say anything about this I will say never go cheap. This is one thing that you honestly get what you pay for. I have an Escort 9500ix and I can honestly say it is the best thing that I have EVER bought for my car. Yes I paid $500 for it however it has saved my behind and has easily paid for itself.

Also on the get what you pay for get one that has a built in GPS. The 9500 does it and it automatically blocks out false signals after you drive past them a few times. That way when it goes off you KNOW their is a cop. Also the 9500ix uses the GPS to suplement a built in Redlight and Speed Camera Data base.

Get the detector and a hardwire kit and you are good to go. I will try to get some pictures of my set up tonight and add them. In VA they are illegal so stealth is key

My escort does this too. Also shuts off after 20 minutes of being still.

There both great units both have GPS , the lock out feature is awesome , these
radar detectors will pay for themselves in less than a year of driving . Even going
over the limit 20kph will get you a ticket nowadays.

Just mount them high and it'll be fine. Many think aiming low is best cause its stealthy. Cops don't pull you over for having them. In fact I've been complimented on mine wen I was pulled over. (Ran a yellow)

When it comes to radar detectors, you get what you pay for. If you spend less than $200, don't expect any silver bullets. I just got a Valentine One with the latest software, and boy does it work wonders.

The reason why I recommend V1 over any Escort or Cobra is not only the sensitivity, but the red arrows. No other detector has them. The number one question when a detector goes "beep" is: 'where is it?' 'Where' is critical information, an effective defense starts with knowing where the threat is. With the other cheaper detectors, its more of a guessing game without knowing what's around you. But with the V1, you'll know whether you are approaching it, you have passed it, or if your being overtaken from behind. Not to mention how many threats there are. Like a good neighbor, V1 is there! Because "beep" is not protection.

Another reason why I will never get those GPS enabled detectors is because they all fail Murphy's Law which states: "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." In other words, if you design a product that will have even the slightest chance of mistakes, you will get mistakes. More info on how GPS works and why its a risky proposition: GPS

I have this detector as well and highly recommend it. I have been using a detector for 20+ years and it has the least false alarms of any detector I have ever used.

I also use Waze for navigation. It allows users to report speed traps and is much more effective than my radar detector. It usually warns me about cops long before the detector goes off.

Using both, I am pretty confident that I will never get a ticket.

My 9500ix has saved me at least ten times not that I'm necessarily doing 20 over,but at times I do 10 over or give it some gas on the on ramp and it helps. I have mine hard wired and mounted to the rear view so it's not visible from the outside.

Just a few tid bits about these. First off, radar detectors are illegal in most all states, if not all, but most ppl don't care about them. Secondly, I don't know if its just in Georgia but it is illegal for a sheriff or police to pull you for going less than 10 over the speed limit.

And as always, drive safe.

Only 12 states have laws against using radar detectors...

The only two places in the U.S. that have laws against radar detectors are Virginia and D.C. Everywhere else, you shouldn't have a problem. But Canada is a whole different story. Even of you get caught with possession of one, its a $500 ticket.

If you're going to get a radar detector, get a valentine one. They are expensive but they are worth it. I had a high end escort for 3 months, got rid of it and bought a valentine, it turned out the be a great decision. Don't get a cobra, there trash, escort is alright, but not nearly as good as valentine one IMO. I have a stealth layout in my stang. I have it mounted in the top right windshield area, then I run the wire in the head liner, all the way down to my computer port. (Under the steering wheel) and that powers it. So when I turn the car on, it powers up, and when I shut it off, it powers off. All automatically. I also have a concealed display placed right in between my gauges. So I don't have to look up every time I get an alert. All wires are hidden, and I absolutely love it. The whole setup cost me about $500, but it has already saved me from 3- $200 tickets, so it paid for itself. I get an alert a good 5 minutes going at 75mph before I hit a speed trap. The single gets stronger and stronger as you approach, then the two side arrows light up for a second, meaning you just passed the trap, and then it switches to a rear detection. It's really neat. Whenever those side arrows pop up, I look to my side, and there's a cop parked under a bridge or off to the side. It detects ALL bands, and it has an AI built into it that will help filter out false alerts. (You can set it to alert to all detection's, but it's pointless, and annoying) My valentine has picked up every speed trap I pass, and false alerts are at a bare minimum. (Much less than my escort)
I cannot stress enough how you get what you pay for when it comes to radar detectors. The more you pay, directly relates to what kind of protection you get. Like I said, don't get a cobra, there not that good at all, (sorry to those who own cobra) if you are on a budget, get a nice escort. They are alright, but not amazing IMO. If you want to go all out, and you want full protection get a Valentine one. Valentine one is also the only radar detector that will tell you if the cop is behind or in front of you. All other detectors just have strength meters.

Also, another cool thing about V1 (valentine one) is that they are upgradable. If you buy an escort, and a new radar gun comes out, or a new technology the helps detect radar, you have to buy a whole new radar detector. Not with V1. With a V1, you ship it back to the factory, pay a small fee (usually around $50) then they ship you a brand new, upgraded detector.
Also, don't buy into that cool "GPS" thing. GPS is a terrible idea in a radar detector. I have already written you an essay on why the V1 is superior, I don't want to write another one on how GPS is a bad idea. Just take my word for it.

In conclusion, Get a valentine one....oh, and I forbid you from buying a cobra.
If you buy a cobra, just give me the money, and I'll ride with you and make random beeping noises. It'll be the same thing.

Actually they are legal in 45-48 states. I was complimented on mine by troopers and cops. Saying it wasn't just a cobra. They never gave me a ticket or anything. Js man

---------- Post added at 07:05 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:01 AM ----------

I want one for the arrows. My escort has the proximity thing as well but it's weak on the sides. Front and back are it's best. Straight like highway is a literal mile. But realistically, 1/2-3/4 on FULL battery. It has a hardwire cable, just can't seem to find it anywhere due to its age (3 years old)

Yes,sadly detectors are illegal in Ontario,Canada where I live.I love my
Mustang,but also if your caught doing 50 kph over the speed limit they
seize your car and big fines and points.

You only need to be caught one time and you loose many ways.
In Ontario we already pay the highest insurance rates
in North America.

In conclusion, Get a valentine one....oh, and I forbid you from buying a cobra.
If you buy a cobra, just give me the money, and I'll ride with you and make random beeping noises. It'll be the same thing.
Like a good neighbor, V1 is there! Because "beep" is not protection.

Not necessarily true , that would depend on the province one lives in a
province in Canada is like a state in the US , where I live the province of British Columbia they are perfectly legal , but some other provinces they are not.

Correct, it is legal in western Canada but is illegal in eastern Canada, I believe its from Ontario to nfld. In Quebec its a 500$ fine and they take your radar detector. Yikes!

And as always, drive safe.
100% false. Radar detectors are legal in all states except for Virginia and Washington D.C. They are also illegal on U.S. military bases.
They area also legal in Canada in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.

NOTE- Radar detetors are not the same as laser & radar jammers. Radar jammers are illegal in the entire U.S., and laser jammers are illegal in the following states.
California, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington D.C.

Radar lasers and jammers are illegal entirely in Canada.
