Scrambling...now that'* a whole nother ball game.
agreed.. most larger police departments (or smaller ones with some cash in their pockets) use instant on laser, which makes a detector useless... Honestly, i can say that i got more tickets when i had my radar detedtor than since i got rid of it. All it did was tell me that i was about to get pulled over.... And under very few circumstances did it actally possibly help
now to UN-hijack.
I have bought tons of refurbished products in my life and never had an issue with them... As long as it comes with a warranty and or return policy, i think you are pretty safe. I like re-furbished products... being in the manufacturing field, i know that if there is a large number of products returned, genereally they have the same issues, and a refurbished unit will have all hardware and firmware updates to cure the most common problems, and therefore MAY possibly be more reliable than a brand new product
