    Default Overseas Shipments

    Hey, I'm thinking about shipping a detector overseas. Anyone know of any problems they have had in the past, costs, or situations with customs confiscating detectors? I have looked and researched but have found no usefull information. I have no clue how kindly other countries take this. Any comments?

    I ordered X50 to Frankfurt Germany and it arrived with no problem. USPS shiping. Ask the seller to mark the package as gift so it would not be checked at customs. Some countries forbid RD importing.

    You talked about stringent custom check, SINGAPORE is one hell of country that forbid radar detector. The chances of getting thru custom clearance is almost zero.

    In Finland, you can import one radar detector legally, but it is illegal to have it in car (or motorbike). And it's illegal to sell it somebody too!
    Yes, it's legal to have a radardetector when you walk, bike, drive boat or drive horse!

    Default Ordering Overseas

    Escort and Beltronics have rules regarding export of several of their units outside of the USA.

    Escort does not allow export of any of their products, period.

    Beltronics limits export of their pro-series units

    Just out of curiosity, what's the reason for that?
