Dear RD.net members,
After owning two different V1s over several years, I have come to the conclusion that we really aren't where we need to be in terms of radar detection. I will say that, in terms of forward progress, some progress has been made with systems such as the 9500ci and, even more-so in the Stinger DSI, which sadly only detects a select few bands (i think k-band and 33.8 ka, someone correct this). It is also expensive, but apparently has superior range.
In my opinion, detection range is mediocre at best, especially Ka band.
I've seen a few attempts at home made lidar jammers, but really, why bother? We are exactly where we want to be in that department, so long as you have the coin to afford a decent jammer. But no radar detector tweaking experiments, and no companies doing anything really to improve detection range.
So, what is the general consensus of the community? There is a poll included, take the time to fill it out. Also, what would your top tier price limit be for a radar detector, both windshield and remote mounted? Assuming the performance was FAR better than what we currently have.
Remote: $2500 - $3000
