  1. Money spent annually on radar detectors?

    Hi guys and gals. I couldn't find this answer, so I'll ask you. While I wouldn't hedge my money, or stocks on Cincinnati, Arizona, or Colorado toys, I'm still curious. Any clues? I'd take the...

    Who dosen't like tinted windows?

    Hard knock here. There are some window tints that will block your rd's reception. They usually contain metals in formulation that can interfere with your detectors sensitivity. If you tint, make...

    Re: Passport S55

    God, I love answering my own posts. This thing looked good for a test subject, but it's old, old, tech, heavy, large, and falls off the suction cups "as many other Escorts do." The absence of...

    How long is too long?

    I've encountered radar from adjacent towns parallel to the highway especially when that highway curves. Some radar detectors are so sensitive they could hear Martians. So how sensitive is too...

    Re: 9500ix help

    As a remedy for the 24.15 blues, I've run city mode on the highway in the past to reduce those falsies as well as turning off K band detection. One or a combination should help, but reduce you...

    Passport S55

    I'm considering running a battery of tests on this box. It's heavy as hell for its size, and drops from suction. I've seen the concerns about no collision avoidance detection filtering, and...

    Re: Outdated, and poor customer service?

    I really debated responding to this thread, but the 2006 last FCC test date of your V1's been in my craw. I'm surprised it does not trip you with collision avoidance? Today, post 2016 rd's block...

    DFR6 sold out

    Want a 6? Amazon is now out. DFR7 is still for sale there @170, but that won't last long. It seems the R7 is helping lower prices, so get em' while you can.

    Another way to determine your unit's last FCC test date is to ask "the model year" from vendor's. This technique is not a guarantee of that date, but it beats buying the unit, looking on the bottom,...

    DFR1 vs LRD750

    Well I was quite impressed with the DFR1, so I ordered a second DFR5, (K band filtering) to see if it's as good performance wise. Amazon sent me an LRD750, although the Uniden box said it's a DFR5. ...

    Hi DB. That's an excellent question. The last V1 made and FCC tested date was 2014. Valentine is either going out of business, or they have not released a new model. However, a new 2014 V1 is old...
