Yeah - don't get one. I've experienced quite a few radar detectors, often
having the highest-end ones available (way back when that meant Bell
VectorIII, since it was the first Ka-band detector.) After lots of use,
chat, and study, I believe there are three kinds of radar detectors:
1) Cordless - they don't seem to even WORK much of the time
2) Corded mass-market (Cincinatti, Bell, Whistler, Uniden) - they work, but
have two modes: Lots of falses, or insufficient warning
3) Valentine. It works, it works good, it tells you from where, and it
costs twice as much.
I got a ticket a while ago that caused me to finally plunk up for the
Valentine. The ticket face-price was $120. Fighting it (which was
successful) was $300. Losing would have cost the $120 plus perhaps another
$200/year for three years in increased insurance costs.
The Valentine cost less than two tickets worth.
