I discovered this site while browning the web, and I must say thank you. I've always thought of radar detectors as gimmicks, but never as a tool that could actually be relied on as a "6th sense".
After doing some research I picked up a brand new Valentine 1 and have been having a blast. Even when I'm not driving "spiritedly" I find it fun to just pick out the LEOs from all of the signals. (thanks to the arrows and counter it's pretty simple)
I also love how you can custom program it to suit your needs. Thanks to FL law, I can disable X band completely. It sure quiets it down for when I just need to get where I'm going in a hurry.
Now I just need to get a LIDAR jammer. I'm looking at the Laser Interceptor, but I have a really small car. (96 Miata)
