V1 for years. It is a few years "outdated" at this point but never lets me down. Disable POP if you hate newer Audi's triggering false alerts when cruising near them.

I have a V1, but it's been sitting in my glove box for about a year.

Default Re: Radar detectors

Had the Escort Redline, but it blew my head with false alerts so I sold it and got the Max. That thing sold to me on the first day. Went to pick up my E38 from Fort Myers, FL and it saved me 4 times on I-75.

But it seems like I need the Laser Interceptor setup since GA became 95% laser recently.

I had a passport by escort, came with the car, usually can see anyone in Kansas from a mile away when you open it up (which is literally everywhere because it's rural kansas) so it's pretty useless. Saved once because he was sitting on the on ramp and I could slow down in time, 30+ over it's useless

Id check out this site: http://www.rdforum.org/forum.php

They have a lot of great info and reviews on the new ones that have come out in the last year. Many have great filters for the blind spot tech that's out there now.

Escort Passport 8500 x50 in each car. LEOs only use Ka band around here so I only scan for Ka band(x and k disabled). No false alarms and they have saved me several times.
