Re: Uniden radar detectors

Here's some data points.  I have the Uniden that was reviewed in Car &
Driver.  It false alarms to much and drives me crazy.  Interestingly, I
sometimes use my 10 yr old classic Escort side by side with the Uniden.  The
Escort is a bit more sensitive yet doesn't false as much.  It's ashame that
the Escort doesn't cover Ka and Laser.  Oh well.
