Thread: radar detectors
12-15-2006 11:55 AM #1
Since some of us live either in or around DC and Virginia, I was wondering how many use radar detectors. I live in Maryland and can purchase one legally. However, how many of you keep them on when in juristictions where they are not legal.
I heard that the cops in Virginia now have the Specter III detectors so its not a good idea to have them on...at least in the commonwealth. Bel's new STI driver is supposed to be invisible, even to the most advanced radar detector - detector. I've seen several tests to show this to be the case. Just wondering if anyone is using the STI driver in the area and what their experiences are. At $450, it's not cheap and I'm debating between that and the Valentine. If I didn't live around DC/Virginia, I would get the V1 but the STI has peaked my interest.
Thanks in advance

I've stuck with my V-1 through 2 updates and...
... have been pleased with it. I usually just pull my V-1 down when traveling through VA. There may be prettier models out there, but none better and the arrows are valuable.Live long, drive well and prosper!

I'm thinking of getting the V1...at least leaning that way. Seems like so many people have it and very few have complained. I mainly drive in MD so it's not that big a deal. Thanks!
PS. It's great to see you posting again. Hope to see you and your wife soon now that your about to retire. Take care my friend and enjoy the ride.

I've seen more and more laser in Montgomery county as well. I'm going to get the V1. Besides it being one of the best ones out there, I'm leaning that way because it's upgradable too. I'm wondering how many falses people will start getting due to all the new technology that are going into cars. I'm starting to see more high end cars with radar cruize control and a new system that monitors distance and will apply the breaks automatically before you hit the car infront. I hope that these will be on other frequencies but I already hear of falses linked to some cars...
Is the unit clipped on the visor? That's an interesting display above the mirror :)
