When in doubt "do the search" everyone has an opinion on the best brands, Mostly as I recall the Passport/Escort, I bought a nifty one that has a built in compass too, Silver Bullet (I think was the name) I don't recall the cost.

Radar Detector.

I want to buy a radar detector,does anybody have any suggestions as to the best brand.and before anybody asks,no I did not get a speeding ticket (yet )
:ssr

I have the Valentine One, bought in the late 80's and just upgraded to a new unit last month. I feel that this is the best detector on the market, but then, that is my opinion. The arrows are great and it does cost more, but it works like a charm.
Check it out..................................................................................Tom

K-40. Separate front and rear detectors, mounted behind the grill and inside the left taillight. Also got their Laser Defuser. The only visible parts are two little light pods, which I had mounted by the emergency flasher switch.

[I have a whistler remote detector (not saying it's the best because I don't think it is, but it was the best remote dectector that I could find for the price about $300). I got a remote so that I don't have anything on the dash or in the windshield.]

Beltronics RX 65

I highly recomend Beltronics RX 65 It has saved me many tickets. I took a trip out east last winter via the Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey Turnpikes. seemed like a speed trap every 20 miles. I had plenty of advance warning with the Beltronics. Laser is a little scary you don't have a lot of time when the warning come on you have to hit the breaks now! There are a lot of others on the market much more expensive but they really aren't any better.

SR7 Plus [Escort Passport with Laser Shifter]

First mod installed today. I have used Escort X50 and liked the peformance for all bands with the exception of Laser. If the Laser warning goes off in normally means "got you." All other bands work very good. Tested the X50 several times against Laser [new where they were] and seldom received a warning. It does work well on my motorcyle and receives the Laser warning early enough to slow down. I understand that is because the unit is mounted in the open and can see the Laser beam quicker.

Watching the local and State police sitting on elevated on ramps shooting suspected speeders from the rear convinced me to purchase the Laser shifter as a defense for the totally unseen predator attempting to increase revenues for the city, county, state, etc.

I wanted a built in model because it is stealth, and I can leave the top down without worring about some one helping themselves to the radar unit. After having to remove the X50 several times one day to put it away so it did not attract attention, it made sense to me to have the entire system built in.

Will report on the performance when I have the opportunity to confirm it is working properly. Hope that is a positive report!!!!!

I just installed a Bel RX-75 remote sensor radar detector with Laser jammers. The Blinder 40 unit is also very highly rated, as are the Valentine units.

I'm also starting the install of the VF2 Photo radar/red light camera blinders, its a unit sits above the rear license plate. It senses the flash of the red light cams and flashes a light at your plate, overexposing the camera image.


Highly recommend this site too.
