don't go cheap. its not worth it. radar detectors should be an investment if you do want to buy one.

Go to http://www.RadarBusters.com to find the latest and greatest bang for your buck.

You need to evaluate your area. What equipment are the police using?

You will never avoid laser with a radar detector and you won't avoid instant on either. I've found that around here..the only thing a detector avoids is the lazy cop.

Like Boosty insinuated, most times these days, if your detector can see them, they've seen you. Or, hopefully somebody slightly faster than you...

And...Like Ol Man Wren and Mos always say..

You won't get a speeding ticket if you aren't speeding.

Well, my theory is "You won't get a ticket if you're not speeding the most..." (usually)
