i had a radar detector and i didn't use it much.. its not too useful in the city since not many cops have their radars on..

the gtech is pretty cool.. especially if u do a lot of engine mods.. also a good way to test if you're getting better at the 1/4 mile

If you drive like an old person stay away from a radar detector. I would definitely get the V1 http://www.valentine1.com/
Trust me this baby works very well.

:bowdown: V1

I've had several radar detectors, and sure they work... but only to an extent! There's this one time I was going 90 in a 70 at around 3 am... Anyway, i was like the only car on the road... no cops, nothing... or so it seemed. Finally, my radar detector went off and it basically told me that the cop was really close. It so happened that the cop was about 200 ft down the road with his radar OFF and once he saw me, he decided to turn it on right away!!! It was really no use for me to slow down at that point in time. Anyway, to make a long story short, the cop was an ass and he gave me a ticket and sent me on my way. Cops are getting smarter!!! I say, get the g-tech...

Okay let me put in my 2 cents... I hope it makes sense. Here goes:

G-Tech - get caught using this by the boys in blue and you'll end up paying for a ticket.

Radar Detector (a good one) - about the same price as a G-Tech and can save you money by avoiding tickets.

Just my way of thinking about this.

Don't get a radar dectector, get The radar dectector V1. But theres not much thats gonna save you is your doing 35+ over the limit and your reaction time is slow.

V1 Babbbeeeee. All the way but you still have to use your head with it. Anything else except for maybee Escort 8500 and you might as well get the GTech for all the good it will do.

If you need to buy one, get the Valentine. Personally, I sold my Valentine 4 years ago, and have run without since. The detector works beautiful, but you get tired of false alarms, and the hassle of putting up and taking it down so you don't get broken into everytime you park. I practice what I like to refer to as "selective speeding", and I have been ticket free for 14 years.

As far as the G-tech, it seems like it'd be fun......for a week.

Save your money, better yet invest it while the market is at low. That way you can put towards future tickets and insurance. :)

Are you BLIND? Instant on Radar has been around for years.

When speeding always remember Traffic is your friend.
Gee, really? Too bad there's not a lot of traffic at 3 IN THE MORNING!!! And I guess I was blind so to speak since there were no lights on that particular stretch of highway!
