Been years since I used radar but I recently got a warning for going 5mph over the speed limit which convinced me to go get a Bell V940. Years ago I had a Bel something (1986-88'ish) and the thing was great. Saved me from many tickets. One day I got the wild idea of tearing that old Bel apart to see if I could make a remote setup. I never got it back to 100% operational- lessons learned. I remember it had some circuit board with about 45 individual wires going to it.... In the late 90's I purchased a Cobra 6 band/laser something model "with voice alert" and it worked okay. I never got a ticket with it but then I'm a casual speeder. I still have this unit today but decided it needed to be upgraded.
I did try a Cobra 9330 model for one day but returned it once I read a few posts on this site about Cobra in general. Plus it also felt cheap and the reviews are poor. Also I didn't want to be one of those drivers setting off better detectors on the road :wink:
I've only had this new Bel for two days and I'm begging to find a speed trap. Hopefully on the way to the beach tomorrow I'll get lucky.
I hope this Bel serves me well like the Bel I had in the 80s.
