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.
