    Default Radioshack radar detector 22.1697

    Hey guys, I just got a inexpensive radar detector drom radioshack(22.1697). I am surprised to see no reviews on cheaper radar detectors! :!: Can any one throw some light on the specs of this detector? I want to gradually upgrade the detectors as I am relatively new in this field.

    Wow,
    I think you may have insulted just about everyone in here with that statement/question.

    Can you still get your money back if you return it?

    I got it for $35. Is it not even worth spending that much money? I could afford only that much at this time.It saved me a ticket already in cleveland, so it has payed for it self, rest all is a bonus! I just want some details from someone who has used it.

    Are you out of your friggin mind?
    Just save your money for a few months and buy a real detector.

    Spend a few hours reading this forum and you'll learn what you need riding w/ you in your car.

    Get rid of that thing before it nukes your brain cells dude!

    chill out dude ^^

    zookybeanz, I don't know anything about this radar detector but honestly I bought a 40 dollar radar detector before and it really didn't work all that well. Usually most of the time I could see the cop about the same time my detector did
