This is my first post here so be gentle, lol
I just got transferred to Washington Dulles in VA and will be commuting from my home in DE. I will be on the road alot so I decided to get a radar detector to try and ease up on the travel time a bit.
I did some research and found out that radar detectors are illegal in the VA/DC area which led to my purchase of the Bel STI Driver (since its not detectable to their rdd's).
I have a couple of questions about it's use though.
In the manual it says not to mount it behind the tint strip, will that effect its range or actual performance in the real world? Or should I just place it below the strip? I am also concerned about the Anti detector laws in VA I have noticed many threads about people hiding their radar detectors, with the STI Driver I dont have to worry about being detected but what about if the leo actually see's the STI, can they pull you over for just having one? I also have a GPS mounted to the right of my rvm so it will have the wire hanging down anyway.
Thanks in advance, Ron
oh btw if there are any tips for this detector to make it work better I would appreciate it.
