i was actually considering that. ive also been looking around for the past couple hrs and found this. http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...uctId=2295114#
seems to have good reviews wherever you look. as for the actual radio, the 2 reasons i chose it are because a) i dont plan on hardly talking on it if i even hook the mic up so outbound isnt really of concern for me, i just need it to get ok reception on 19. and b) because its got a 3 year manufacturer warranty on a product that is only $30. which makes me believe its made decently.
the radar is one of the main reasons i want it too. my pos cobra is useless now that the city of memphis is using lidar. only thing its good for is the visor radar that is on all the time.
an alternative is the escort live detectors that work with a smartphone, but im not gonna shell out $500+ just to avoid a $100 ticket. ive obviously got alot of research yet to do, and ive also gotta convince myself to drill holes in my dash. (that one is gonna be a toughy)
thanks for all the info guys, its much appreciated.
