This is an interesting site for me because I have had an interest in radar detectors for many years. However, I realize some may think I'm just saying this, but I'm not really much of a speeder at all. My problem is I live in the hills and have to travel many miles to reach the big city where the few jobs are. So in this part of the country one sees a lot of radar detectors and tons of cars and pickup trucks using CB channel 19 for use on the interstates.
I have owned about a dozen radar detectors in the past, starting out with and old school Fuzzbuster X band box in the early 1980s. I bought a V1 in 2003 and just had it upgraded this week. So far I'm still testing the new upgrade on the V1. I find that I use this thing mainly because I love technology. But if I find I have a reason, say a medical issue, or my job is on the line and I'm late, I will do whatever I need to do as safely as I can. Otherwise I'm happy my state now has a 70MPH speed limit, as this is fine for many drivers here. Nevertheless I rarely ever drive without my radar detector, even when I'm not in a hurry.
Glad to find this site!
