    Default Effects of Airport X-Ray machines on radar detectors

    I am getting ready to travel with a radar detector and was wondering if an X-Ray machine would damage a radar detector at all.

    I'd be more worried about a cop seeing it at the security checkpoint and "accidentally" smashing it while checking your luggage. :wink:

    The airport x-ray has no affects on any electronic items. The xray has very low output, and has a very narrow beam. If you are worried about any of your equipment I would ask for a hand check.

    Ya i've never had any problems with any electronics before other than a portable dvd player but it was a crappy one anyway so i think i'll be fine.
