I'm new to this forum and to detectors generally. I am shopping for my first detector. I wish to have some early warning capability against both radar and laser units.
I drive a Miata convertable. Need a detector that can be seen and heard while operating my car in open-top configuration. Leaning toward the Whistler Pro-78 or XTR-690 because of recent favorable reviews.
Are either of these devices suitable for my situation?
Does either detector [or any detector] have the capability of using an external speaker for better audible alerts?
My car is red. Flat black grille. Hidden headlights. Parking lights deleted and replaced by flat black air intake grilles. Tiny LED's [.250" lenses] turn signals are positioned behind those grilles. Very small projector fogs with 1.50" lenses are mounted in "mouth". No front license plate. No badges or chrome anywhere on the car. Other than covering the fogs, is there anything else that can be done to defeat laser threat?
