Still rockin' a V1 for 15 years now. I've sent it in twice for upgrades to keep it current so its an all new unit by now. It's expensive but as a friend of mine used to say, "Buy the best, cry once."

I run a recently re-tuned Escort 8500 and STI (undetectable in VA and Canada). I have had excellent performance with them. Zero tickets, mega time make-up. I am trying the new Escort Redline Ex in cage for 30 days and then want to try the Uniden R3. Been seeing good press on this unit and the cost is a lot less than V1 and Escort. These last two units now get rid of almost all of the pesky K alerts the older ones got (What genius at Acura and Hyundai thought of that frequency use?). I use radar detectors as a tool and not stand alone protection. The alerts remind me to watch speed in municipalities and on highways to ensure I am not the front vehicle or all by myself when alerted. I always stay out of the left lane when driving creatively and exaggerating the speed limit. You never see a right laner get pulled over do you? Unless they are all alone. Cheers and be safe.

Mr. Kubuki,

Thanks for the info on new detector "tools". 100% agree on strategies, with the addition that I don't want to be the tail end Charlie, or the fastest vehicle, either. Kinda the reverse Grizzly Bear hypothesis. Seems like there's ALWAYS someone who wants to oblige and go faster than me, too.

Haha. Around here we let the Illinois folks win that front of the pack race...out of state revenue is a bonus!


If the good old days were so damn good, why did we bother to invent modern times?

I too rely on the middle-of-the-pack, brake lights ahead, method of radar detection.
