    A Stinger DSI for sure!
    http://www.stinger.com/index.php?sec=index&lang=en

    1. Safety Signals: "Warning! Roadworks."
    The Spectrum Analyzer enables real-time, remote reception and decoding of so-called Safety Signals. The 'Safety Signals' function warns the driver of potentially dangerous traffic situations. Road workers, schools, police and ambulance services emit Safety Signals, which are immediately transferred into a warning signal for cars equipped with DSI.

    2. Police Check: The roles reversed
    There has been a recent upsurge in news items reporting on the inaccuracy of police speed checks. Police radars often fail to operate within the statutory frequency bands or are set at an incorrect angle. In addition, car registration plates are not always read properly due to illegibility or sloppy note-taking. Stinger took up this challenge years ago and can finally offer European motorists the ideal tool to defend themselves against unjust fines. DSI's Police Check enables the motorist to check the validity and accuracy of police speed checks, arming the user with sufficient proof to avoid being fined. The Police Check function is available in the most extensive DSI version, the 'Elite Edition'.

    The Police Check function uses e.g. GPS and the Spectrum Analyzer to keep an exact track of your route, all radar control points passed and, in the case of radar, the exact measurement frequency and speed.

    Under the famous Mulder Act, the burden of proof in the event of a traffic fine is shifted to the car owner. Under this Act, the onus is on the owner to prove that he has not committed a traffic violation. The Police Check function can help you with this burden of proof.


    3. Military Detection: Military technology, double the distance
    'Military Detection' comprises of the 'Radar Alert' and GPS Detection functions. As previously mentioned, the new Stinger is not a radar detector. Thanks in part to the Spectrum Analyzer and 'patch antenna' technology, the system is able to spot police radars with scientific accuracy at distances previously thought impossible. The DSI Computer can issue a warning at over twice the distance of radar detectors such as the legendary Stinger Ventura.

    Our GPS Detection technology supports the radar alert function and enables advanced technology, such as:

    1. SpotListing, activating alarms in fixed places
    Simply press the 'SpotList' button to mark all locations where you would like to be warned, such as new radar poles and dangerous crossings. Simple and highly effective. The SpotListing function provides motorists with a warning signal for non-radar and laser speed traps (poles with induction loops, route controls), i.e. speed traps that cannot be identified by the Spectrum Analyzer. SpotListing is additionally available to customers purchasing DSI without the Radar Alert function. It approximates Radar Alert on the basis of a national database (available in the U.K. this year). SpotListing is a free application, saving DSI users from taking out expensive and complicated subscriptions.

    2. FalseListing, making nuisance alarms a thing of the past
    Imagine this: You drive past the same petrol station every day. The automatic doors of that petrol station cause the radar detector to produce a false alarm. Every morning. Is that radar detector slow witted? Yes. The Stinger DSI is far more intelligent. All the DSI motorist needs to do is press the 'FalseList' button when passing the petrol station. From then on, you will no longer be bothered by false alarms when driving past that location.

    3. SpeedSense: No alarms below a certain speed
    Do you often hear radar alerts even though you aren't speeding? The Stinger DSI allows you to enter two speed values below which no alarm will sound, one for motorways and one for non-motorway driving. The DSI GPS module determines which of the two values to apply. The luxury of relaxed driving.

    4. CurrentSpeed: GPS speed at alarm.
    Available by popular demand. Many motorists automatically look at their display when a warning is sound. During each warning, the CurrentSpeed function displays the real-time speed on your DSI. The latest GPS technology ensures this value is even more accurate than the value indicated by your car.


    4. Route Logging: Automatic mileage administration.
    The 'Elite Edition' of the DSI will also boast the 'Route Logging' function, a GPS-driven automatic mileage reporting system for the tax man and/or fleet management.


    5. Spectrum Analysis: Accurate on-site measurements
    The DSI enables professional users such as microwave engineers and/or mechanics to work with a spectrum analyser at any location. The DSI Spectrum Analyzer is many times cheaper than the 50,000 Euro that a classic laboratory spectrum analyzer will set you back. In addition, thanks to its highly compact size, the DSI Spectrum Analyzer can be used anywhere: At measurement locations all over the country, as well as in your own laboratory.
    This thing is unbelievably amazing... even without Spectre being an issue, it is still a very interesting, and unfortunately expensive, piece.

    V1 and Blinder and maybe a handheld CB with an earpiece so my family doesn't have to hear the language, but I know about the speed traps.

    I,am not sure but for the price that you pay for them they should. I think the SRX is based off the 8500 or 8500X50.

    Try here:

    It looks like they lose by about .3 to .4 miles in all radar bands to the Valentine One.
