I've been looking at getting a detector for about a year now, and I'd like your advice for my driving habits.
I own a Miata. Not exactly a highway demon or anything, so I don't really speed on the highway, and don't need a detector there.
Where I DO speed are on twisty rural backroads. Police aren't nearly as dense on roads like this, but they are there.
In a month or two, I'll be travelling to California (the mecca of awesome backroads), and won't have a clue where a officer might pop up to ruin the fun.
On a highway, it's easy to detect ahead becasue everything's so unobstructed. How do detectors work on mountain roads, where you're likely to get caught over a ridge, or around a mountain curve? Are detectors pretty much worthless for this sort of driving, since you're already within 500feet or so by the time either of you have line-of-sight?
Thanks for the advice!
