Cop radar? Best brand? Is it worth it?

Hello every one, has anybody bought a good cop radar to alert when a cop is nearby? And it actually works? Ive been looking and they really range from $30 in upwards to $500 I know a $30 is gonna be pretty bad but has anyone bought one around the $150 mark and it actually works?

Don't waste your time with the cheap ones. Can't go wrong with Valentine one or Escort. If it saves you even one ticket it's paid for itself. Still no substitute for smart, observant, responsible driving. Still mine have paid for themselves a few times over. I have an Escort Passport 9500ix in my Mustang and a Escort Redline on my motorcycle.

I researched this extensively before purchasing mine, and a poor quality unit is almost useless, a good one is worth its weight in gold. The cheapest one I would recommend is the escort x50, you might be able to find them on sale for around 200-250 although they might be discontinued. I got the escort 9500ix which I believe is the best all around easy to use unit. its around $450, but its paid for itself a few times over in the first yr. very quiet minimal falses, etc. The valentine and redline are high end units, but less user friendly, best for those who are really educated on countermeasures. Also check out the waze app which is free, very useful also for ticket evasion. Good luck, take your time and get the best one you can afford
thanks

I second the 9500ix. It will pay for itself time and time again. It will pick em up a good mile or more away and even cross traffic like side roads.

It depends a lot where you live and the type of roads and the gear the cops use also. Where I live, in the mountains with mainly two lane curvy roads, a detector would help a lot because the best way for cops to check speed is using regular moving radar and leave it on so it reduces their time turning it on and off when a car comes at them around a curve or over a hill.
More open and urban areas, they may be using Laser. Although they must be stationary to use it, it's unbeatable and the only warning you'll get is the one that alerts you that they just nailed you. If your cops are big on using lasers, I wouldn't spend the money on a detector. I'd put it aside for traffic court.

I recently got the Escort passport. I am coming from a cheaper detector. This works very good and has a really good range. I tried the escort live app, and the detector is paired with your phone so it tells you if there is red light cameras, speed cameras and knows what the speed limit is,so it tells you if your speeding. It's pretty cool. You have to pay $50 a year for the app so you could do with out it but I like it. Click image for larger version

Escort 9500ix has saved me quite a few times. Worth every cent. No need to pay for an app with it either. It does everything you need it to. No radar detector will save you from a cop not running radar though. There's always that chance that you will get busted.

Escort redline and valentine one are awesome as well. The valentine one is great because it points to which way the radar is coming from, so if it's in from of you it lights up an arrow pointing forward. It's actually very helpful. Not to mention the distance they will pick up radar at. I think those two are the top dogs as far as distance anyway. I have also heard nothing but good things about passport as well. So I don't think you could go wrong with either of the three.

I like my Valentine - it helps, particularly on the freeway. Traffic cops in LA use a point and shoot type now that will only show up when they actually pull the trigger though, so you are right on top of them when they read your speed. Hard to prepare for that unless you are (gulp!) actually doing the speed limit!

That's a laser. Valentine 1 is the best hands down.

With escort live and defender database, I can't imagine another company currently outperforming passport.

Good point. There's a lot of unmarked police cars that pace on the highways here. Sneaky.

A lot of the cops in NW Ohio and SE Michigan like to do their paperwork in random places that you can come flying up on and not even see them. All it takes is for them to hear you and then see you and you're busted. Best bet is to save it for the track or if a country road with no traffic or houses. A radar detector is helpful for road trips. Valentine or Escort is the way to go. I've used both and prefer my 9500ix as it does let me know about speed/red light cameras and learns what radar frequencies are irrelevant and stored those locations so that it doesn't go off every time you pass that particular spot with out having to pay extra. It notifies me in plenty of time to slow down if need be. I do think that the Valentine gives you further notice and it's nice that it indicates the exact direction that radar is set up. I would suggest not going the cheap route. Get a good one if you're going to buy one.

Hawaii was bad they had every thing from 300's, Mach 1's, corvettes, and 4 runners. The only thing that would save you is the blue light on top. But it's hard to see from far away.

Escort 9500ix has been great. Mounted to come on when you start the car. No app needed and it will notify you of red light cams, speed traps and it has a memory for false detections. Once you get a false detection 3 times in the same spot, it remembers it and will no longer alert there. (that is for auto door & traffic sign detections K-Band)

Blendmount. You tap into your wiring coming up the pillar. Takes about 5min with the kit they sell. It is the best most solid mount out there. The electrical tap depends on what mirror you have. If you have a mirror with a compass, it taps in right at the map light area. All of their stuff is quality and clearly shows how to wire and mount it so that it is professional.

I downloaded the Waze app last week and tried it out after seeing you mention it. It does a pretty good job for something free. Definitely for interstate and highway situations. It's also completely dependent on its users reporting cop locations.

First off, a lot of bad information here. You do not need a 400-600 radar detector to help keep you out of trouble. I've been running one of those "crappy" $80 dollar cobra detectors for 8 years now. Used in 07 350z, 08 SRT4, 13 SHO, and now 14 GT mustang. Guess what...Zero Tickets. I really wasted my money...

Definitely incorrect, there is a reason high end, educated countermeasure enthusiasts spend the money on the best units, they work much better. I would not have spent 450 if I could have gotten away with less, I intended to spend under 250, but after a lot of research and advice, I went with a quality model, 9500ix, worth every penny! The main difference between a crappy cobra or k40 ,and a quality unit from valentine or escort is 1. range, the better units give you a lot longer notification of a threat so you have time to react. 2. falses, this is a big one, the cheaper units will make noise constantly, to the point that you either don't trust it, or turn it off completely. Mine is very quiet even in the city, if it goes off, 9 times out of ten its real. Bottom line there is no bad information on this thread, just choices. If you absolutely cant spend more than 150, or if you rarely speed, the cobra or k40 might be better that nothing at all. If you like to drive fast, and want to protect your wallet and license, you really need to get a good unit, one save will pay for the price difference
. In the end take your time and buy the right one for you.

Agree with this. Certainly a cheap $80 detector is better than nothing though.

Don't forget BEL. I've had multiple detectors from them. The BEL 955 I currently have is, what? ten years old and has saved me a potential ticket dozens of times, and still does. It was voted best detector under $200 and seems to still hold that ranking. It still finds the Ka commonly in use where I live w/o issue. It's not worth a darn on laser but, pretty much nothing is, as the moment you're painted, yer done there and there is very little scatter to pick up in advance. This detector is still on sale, despite its advancing age.

You beat one ticket with one of these, even a high end one and the unit pays for itself these days.

None are worth a darn on laser man. It basically has to hit right in the eye of the detector to register, and by that time you're caught anyway. I got caught on the interstate running 95 into 70 and the laser detection went off on my escort redline and the cop immediately turned on the lights 1/2 mile down the road where he was sitting in the median. Truth.

I do believe that is what I said....

Last time I got picked off by laser the cop told me red cars are the best for being "seen" by the laser...hell, they're the best to be seen by the cop's naked eye, too

Just frickin' road tax man. They catch me on .001% of the stuff I actually do so, it's the cost of doing business.

yeah laser is tough to catch with a radar detector, your only chance is to catch some scatter from a car ahead if you have a long range detector. but its a small chance. thats where waze comes in, you will see him way before he sees you
