Hello folks of radardetector.net,
I'm new to the radar detector world and I figured I should start my research not only from the main site but, on the forum as well.
My job consists of mostly driving to job sites mostly in the midwest. I've been hit with a couple few tickets already and I don't want to make it a fourth. First two were from spacing and just straying over the limit, the last one... I don't want to talk about it, let's just say, buying a mustang didn't help. The new Illinois law almost had my butt in jail...
I figured since I don't always pay attention to where cops are (even when I do the speed limit which is almost all the time now), I figured I would get a detector to help.
My work vehicle is a Jeep Patriot which, if you're not careful can slowly creep up in speed without noticing due to light throttle and a CVT which keeps the engine revs low.
I tried a Beltronics V10 a few months ago, it seemed to do the job but, I still didn't want to put my full trust in it for some reason. I returned it once my road trip at the time was finished.
I've been looking at Beltronics as they seem to be Ford and Escort is the Lincoln brand. Same product, costs more.
