I have a Escort,,,$500.00 @ Best Buy,,,,,Works great but you have to use common sense or you will get BUSTED,,,,Speed traps,,,,I got busted with mine,,but it was my fault,,,,coming off a 65 mph zone right into a 35.....he was waiting for me ,,,and when they see you have one,,,NO BREAK,,,so if you play the game ,,dont get upset when you lose.....But,,,,mine payed for itself because i like to drive a little fast ,,,,i play the game

Radar detectors

New technogy is Escort Live. It interfaces with the others on the highway and post location on your phone map when radar is detected or posted by another motorist far before you get there. Also a product called blocker inhibits laser from getting a reading giving you more time to adjust your speed.

There is always a pencil-necked-geek somewhere, breathing heavy in the bedroom he calls "his", in his Mom's house, until 3 or 4 AM, mousing his bridged CPUs with multi-screened viewing, trying to find a back door to something or other, in order to circumvent the what is just for the shitzngiggles of it all. Why aren't they working on faking out speed detection? :wtf:

the trick is to go faster than the laser and confuse them

I run Escort 8500X50 's in all three of my vehicles,they can detect POP radar even when it is not on,the trick to using a radar detector is wait till someone passes you over the speed limit then match their speed when the get a little more than an 1/ 8th mile ahead of you, when radar clocks him you have more time to slow to the posted speed than you need,but watch your rear,Escort will pick up rear radar but not as far.I retired in 1999 so I'm not familiar with Laser,sorry.
