New member here. Do 35k miles a year in far west Texas, and wasn't considering a radar detector until I got my new BMW I need one! Very informative postings, as well as Radar Rob's stuff..I do almost all highway driving, except for infrequent trips to the Metroplex or Houston. I think I need long range radar, as well as an LI, if it wasn't illegal in Texas, so of course I would never consider getting something that would subject me to a ticket!
