It looks nice. I thought that was a radar detector, but I want certain. They're one of the best inventions ever made!

That they are! Mine has saved me more times than I can count. The only downside is that they are essentially useless against laser.

Nope! Even a laser-blocker can't save you! Although they aren't illegal (yet) in Canada, when I can't get a reading with LiDar, I stop the vehicle and write the ticket, based on my speed estimation. ;)

PS. We haven't used radar for almost 10 years...

I've been saved from laser with mine when they're shooting vehicles on multi lane highways near me a get "splatter " that mine picks up. Also the real time reporting of speed traps via gps from other same brand users is invaluable.

That's not how laser works. If I can see you (which I will long before you see me) and I can get a lock with the gun, you are done. Radar is much less focused. When I'm using radar I'll just sit in plain sight with it on the whole time and grab anyone stupid enough to get caught. My threshold is super high, too.

Thank you. It's babied. Driven mainly in nice weather even though we have a hardtop for it. Not a daily driver. Beginning to look at Porsche to add to fleet or replace this one. And yes that is a radar detector in the windshield.

A radar detector was the first thing I bought when I got my first car. I'm thinking about getting one of the Escort MAX CI 360 when I get my next car so I can use it in Virginia.

I always check out Bell. They're owned by Escort and many times have the same or similar features for significantly less $
