    BUYING a radar detector to avoid speeding fines is not only illegal, but it simply doesn't make any financial sense, according to Highway Patrol Sergeant Rob Young.

    The detectors can cost between $500 and $1500, an amount already higher than most speeding fines.

    Sgt Young said the majority of radar detectors his officers had confiscated were made by a number of popular electronics brands and usually came from America or elsewhere overseas.

    "The brands may make them seem legitimate, but radar detectors are illegal in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland," he said.

    If I didnt have a girlfriend I'd hug you Good to see we will be getting along. By the way, I have some results coming that im sure you will want to see. They are detection ranges for the V1 with the filtering on. I am running both the x50 and the V1 through these tests. It should be done on friday.
