Ok, so I have been trying to learn a lot about radar detectors for the past couple of days. I had an Escort back in 2000, and I can't remember the model #, but I did like it.
First off, I am in VA. So, I know they are illegal.
I have 2 cars that I do NOT like running front license plates on. I don't even have a place for the plate brackets any more.
Thing is, I don't drive them much, mostly to car shows, ect. Most of those shows are in NC, which is about a 30 minute drive, once I get to that state, I am good to go. But getting there requires me to be on a highway for at least 40 miles.
County cars don't bother me, it's the ol state troopers. In 12 years of owning these cars, I have only received a ticket once for failure of front tag display, the other times were warnings, but I could have probably avoided these w/ some kind of warning....
SO, from what I have read, the Val 1 and the Beltronics STi look like my best choices. I have read that the Val 1 is detectable, while the STi isn't, correct? But I like how the Val 1 has directional arrows.
Can anyone give me some ideas? I would like to make the purchase within a few days...thanks!
As a newbie I did read all the "READ me first" posts, but I just didn't get the answer/direction I needed....thanks!
