Official Radar Detector Discussion Thread

Ok seriously people post a new thread every few days or so. I just decided to create this so we don't discuss the same things over and over again.


Radar Detector Manufacturers

Escort Makers of the Passport
Valentine One
Beltronics
Cobra
Whistler


Informational Websites and Reviews

Wikipedia For The Win
Radar Busters
Howstuffworks Radar Detectors



It is always the same argument over and over. Passport vs. Valentine One. Discuss...

I really enjoy my passport quite a bit. It has a GPS tagging feature so I can tag out any known false alarms so that they never beep again. I can mark police hot spots. I really have no complaints although I haven't had a Valentine One yet. I would like to try it out one day.

It would be really cool to have a V1 because it fun to see where cops are and they they are radaring, but I don't speed or drive
highway/interstate, so its really not worth the 4 hundo for me.

I love the V1. I drive 7hrs to school or home every so often and the V1 really saves my butt. It's a great investment. It gets a lot of false alarms around towns but you can easily change settings to fix that. I generally don't use it when I'm going for a short drive but if I know I'm going to be driving home from somewhere, no matter how far away, at night, I always bring it. Cops can be very sneaky at 3am.

I took a video a while back with my cell phone when I was driving home late night. I picked up a cop over 2 miles away, drove by him as he had someone pulled over, and keep driving to show how far away the V1 will keep picking up his Ka signal. There were a lot of false alarms around me because of a shopping center but the Ka light was flashing and pointing to the cop.

enjoy!

K I will add those when Im not drunk. Do you think we should include jammers? It is my understanding that all are illegal on all US roads.

I will check up on the legality of the Blinder.

edit: well, first of all, I just found out that site is a fake. The actual Blinder site is:

http://www.blinderxtreme.com

my apologies.

As for legality:

I can't see it being any less effective? It's still detecting the same signal, what type of vehicle it's mounted to shouldn't make a difference

I have the Escort 8500i X50 and love it. It's saved me from about 6-9 tickets since I've owned it. Only problem is the sound is hit or miss, some times I can't hear the detector when it's a low level warning.

When I turn it on while listening to music it seems to be louder but some times its loud when I turn it on before I start my car it seems loud. It's weird.
