Great Radar Detector

 

For any radar detector to be useful, you have to be as smart as the unit. It wont help if you don't get used to the alerts. It may give false readings from time to time, but if its in an area you drive a lot, you can learn to tell what the false alerts...

Works very well. Saved me from a couple tickets already. Pop gun detection works very well here in Wisconsin. Compass is a wonderful feature once calibrated properly for people like me who have absolutely no sense of cardinal directions. Don't get as...

None that come to mind, though Intellimute is almost useless if you don't have a tach in your vehicle to see where you set RPM is at. That's the fault of the vehicle manufacturer for not including a tach though, not the units.

Seems to work well

 

picks up the most used radar bands. compass works well. i like that it can be set up to turn on and off with the ignition by sensing the voltage it is getting

cops are smarter, they don't turn on the radar till they want to clock you so I usually see the patrol car before the radar detector goes off

Don't go Cobra

 

I wouldn't reccomend buying anything cheaper than $100, like at walmart, and I most deffinately will not buy cobra

Cobra may seem like a reasonable deal with the reviews on newegg, even my brother has had one for 2 years

Cobra sold out to the US government and places a signal in their devices that radar detecter detecters pick up, it'll instantly tell police your speed by how fast your radar is moving

No protection in Norht Carolina

 

Nice compass, it works Okay with conventional radar. I usually get enough warning to drop down to speed limit.

Around Raleigh(RPD)and along the interstates in North Carolin(State Troopers)instant on is used. I can usually see the Trooper/RPD patrol car before detector gives warning.

Saved me from a ticket after 1 day!!

 

I got this radar detector to hopefully save me from future speeding tickets, and it has already paid for itself, there was a school about 2 miles ahead, and it popped up with the Ka band, 2 MILES BACK! I would have kept speeding if it wasnt for this...

None Yet

For some reason trucks often give false "POP" alerts.

No speeding tickets. Excellent for avoiding those silly Florida State po-po who do u-turns on I-95 to give you a speeding ticket for going 95. Quickly pays for itself.

At 100mph I only get 24mpg.

Not bad, but not great.

 

While this is a good all-round detector, it's not one of the best. It gives rather more false alerts than you'd like, even in city mode. The K/Ka/Ku sensitivity is lower than you'd expect for a model at this level.

Spoken alerts

False alerts
