The black box says it all. To those who think it has a 1980s look (how did you figure that out?) and looks outdated, what do you suggest? Certainly not plastic, scanning dots to amuse your friends- did you finally figure out that the dots are useless? Control on top of the detector so when mounted are invisible? The arrows tell it all. Who wants to listen to bird noises and not know where the radar is coming from? Blame it on the gaming industry where dazzling lights baby sit you. I vote for radar detection, good electronics and a company that proven over and over a high degree of reliability.
