What's Arfcom's favorite radar detector this week?

I know that Valentine One has been the reigning champion for a while now, but are there any new contenders?

Also, any mounting kits or mounting tricks you could pass on would be appreciated.

And buddy and I both have escort passport 9500's and have never had a problem. I haven't been pulled over since I've had it either.

I recently switched to a V1, running a dedicated Droid and the YaV1 App, it's awesome! I'm using a visor pouch, keeps it hidden from LE and thieves.



Oh yeah, RDs don't work

Bell Pro 500. Excellent Ka band sensitivity, GPS for marking speed traps, and you can update the unit on line.

I tried the Passport Max but returned it. I liked the false reduction, especially when taking the same route to work. But range didn't seem too impressive and the build quality of the mount and case was unacceptable for $549 imo. Ended up with the V1 - love the simplicity of controls, directional arrows, and range seems better. The case & mount are solid. Downsides - almost unusable in town, and I get a lot of K-band falses from semis (screw you Fed Ex).

Get the V1C and run the YaV1 app, allows you to manually lock out known falses. Also allows you to disable K-POP which will almost completely eliminate falses from vehicles.

V1 has way more false alerts compared to my passport 8500.

This is what I run. It does very well. Laser detector is very good. Can pick up K and KA band that is pointed at you from as much as 1.5 mi out depending on topography. Even learned it could detect red light cameras when I drove through Chicago.

Beltronics 940. Been flawless. Works very well at long distance. Few years back was rated best one under 200. I believe they're made by escort.

My 9500Ix has been absolutely tits.

Had it hard mounted in my BMW on a homemade bracket, and when I sold it, I transferred to my FJ. Still a great purchase.
The GPS function to remember fixed stations and signs, doors etc. is great.

Yea Im sure the cost of the ticket paid enough to cover the airplane fuel.

Waze only seems to work in the bigger cities. No one uses it around here.

I've always heard there was one where the company would pay your ticket if you got pulled for speeding while using it. True or false? Seems like BS.

RMR sucks if you ask me. Their radar/laser jammer's are passive not active which would be illegal and they don't work.

Registration Form must be signed and mailed within 30 days of purchase. Registered owner of the radar and/or laser scrambler cannot exceed 15 mph or 30% over the posted speed limit; whichever is less. Ticket must clearly state "Radar" or "Laser" and "Speeding". Registered owner must be the driver when the ticket is issued. Only the person who is the registered owner of a jamming product is eligible for the rebate. Does NOT APPLY where DWI or DUI is involved, or in school or construction zones. 3-Year warranty will be honored for all models registered, except the Moto-Raptor which is eligible for a 1-year warranty.
