 Radar's

What is a decent radar to have just to know if a cop is around if your speeding what would the price be on a mid rang one my friend said that cobras are the best but im not sure. Also is thier certain rang's on theses radars like one can tell only certain amount of blocks and other can tell different or what? Thanks for any comments in advanced.

a radar/scrambler would be the best but really pricey

I had a radar detector. It could detect up to a mile away...I got in more trouble when I had it so I sold it though...if you get pulled over and the cop sees it, it almost guarantees a ticket...

i wouldnt spend money on a cobra nor anything that you can get at walmart. but thats me

if you truly want something that will actually work you have to think high end radar detectors

such as, valentine 1, escort and K-40. all those 3 brands are in the top range, also consider belkins, they seem to have a decent line but ive never used them so i cant tell.

the valentine 1 you can get it around 400$, the escort may be between 275-375$ depending on the model. and the K-40 portable would be around 300$

ive had great experience with k-40 and escort, but with k-40 you get the 1st year of your pourchase a free ticket warranty, so if you do get a speeding ticket k-40 will pay for it, and that for me makes a difference, because they have to be pretty sure theyr products are really up there in order to have that warranty.

well im not looking to drop 300 on a radar i just want something to tell me if a cop is close but that one your talking about with the ticket warranty sounds preaty intising but i dont have that kinda money for that. Any ideas on a more simpler radar just to catch some cops?

If you really want a good system go with Calibre K40, best system I have ever had installed. The thing does everything, monitors all radars, protects its self from radar detector detectors, and can kill the police scanner if you want it to. You will never be disappointed.

well yes the calibre is ofcourse one of the best (if not the) but your taking a big chunk of money that this guy dont seem to have.

if you really dont have the money to buy something that will actually work for you, i would recomend you to wait, save up and spend it when you can. there is no point of spending 150$ on a cobra one if its not going to work like they say they do, or if its going to get you into more speeding tickets.

something you should consider is gettin a laser defiuser or jammer, wich will scramble the signal that the cop is trying to read. of course be prepared to spend about 300$ more on that item but is totally worth it.

you see radar can be detected easy by a good equipment for about 3/4 to 1 mile range, because those guns are always turned on because of the delay they take to load before they can shoot. but laser guns load and shoot in matter of seconds, so when your so called radar/laser protection unit from a cheapo brand chirps means that youve been shot and pull over boy.

im just telling you this because you dont want to spend lot of money on this, but if you dont want to pay up for it...better dont spend any money on that and just drive carefull.

 Radar detectors, Scramblers, Reflectors, etc.

My brother picked up a ValentineOne a few years back, and the extra display for it, and he's never been happier. 400$

I've had a Cobra Walmart special that cost me about 120$ that has all the bells, talking, compas, VG2 guards, Emergency Alerts, etc. I'm pretty happy with it...

The coupe de'gras though was a PhantomII from Rocky Mountain Radar that I picked up for my gf a few years back. It's a 360 degree detector with 180 degree active laser and passive radar jamming capabilities. Nice piece of hardware that you can find for about 250-300$.

Myself, at this time, have the cobra above with a Phaser from Rocky Mountain velcro'd to the bottom of it. The Phaser is the jamming components of the Phantom with nothing else added.

FYI: Federally speaking, the emission of radio frequencies that are outside the allowed ranges for a non-licensed vehicle or operator are punishable by, nominally, a fine and confiscation. The theory of the RMR equipment above is that their equipment 'reflects' the original signal of the radar guns filled with white noise. Does that sound completely legal? Let your lawyer decide that one. However, the emission of infrared light from a moving vehicle is not against any federal laws at this time. Though, interfearing with an officer of the law's ability to do his job by actively jamming his equipment could be constrewed as obstruction of justice. Again, ask yer lawyer on that one.

.02$

Got to check out Whistler's new XTR-690 and Pro-78 models. The reviews have all been great. Don't believe me, check out the detector forums. Under $200 for both!

I'm not looking to start a conversational war here, but there are a few points that are worth mentioning:

1) Radar Interference, as 'reflected' by the RMR equipment, has proven that the accuracy of a 199x-200x production year 'Radio Frequency Speed Acquisition Device' is diminished over distances of 500' or more. As Radar devices can calculate speeds of vehicles in excess of that distance, the accuracy dimishes further. At 1500' or greater, it has been reported to skew the calculated speeds of the targeted vehicle for long enough (if detected at that moment by an onboard detector) to allow for a moderate decrease in speed before the device can successfully 'lock on'. The amount of reflection and reception of said signals is of course based on the direction of the signal, angle of attack, and so on. Under 500', the radar jamming features are next to useless.

2) The active Infrared LIDAR jamming signal, in contrast to the above Radar features, is much more effective. Because it is actively pulsing high frequency infrared light from the device (which, with any camcorder is easily visible for confirmation) in large amounts, it easily confuses the receivers on the handheld guns the forces use. As the targeting beam that the gun uses is roughly 1/2" when blasted out over 2000' (as reported elsewhere, the average LIDAR unit can accurately calculate speed out to a half mile or more given perfect condition), is is easily washed out by the 'cloud' of IR white noise being emitted from the device at the same frequencies. From experience I can easily say that LIDAR is near completely incapacitated as soon as your device enters the targeting field. Effectively, it also protects all other surrounding vehicles until you pass out of that 'field' as well.

K40 has/had sold licence plate frames for years now that they stood by that had the same LIDAR scrambling technology. They also make an outstanding 'Stealth' Radar detection system that must be professionally installed in a vehicle, that has remote detection horns, signaling lights, and can vary from install to install. Unless you're looking for it, you'll never see it.

Lastly, not that these last devices are legal, however, you can purchase devices easilty on the internet that will ACTIVELY emit a radar echo that reports to any listening device that you are traveling 'xx mph'.

At this point though I realize that the content herein doesn't exactly have links to external documents attesting to each statements validity. The question of the validity of the statements above has been left as an exercise for the reader. The reader assumes all liability in reference to acceptence of the statements as declared above.

Thank you for calling, and have a pleasant day.

radar/laser jammers are illegal in some states, notably california.  Some expensive laser/radar detectors still can't detect those tricky instant-on radar guns.... :(

i like to call those ticket detectors.
