I plan on buying one soon now that it will probably be a good investment driving the Bullitt. Since I haven't had one in 20 years what are considered the better ones nowadays?

I have been doing some research into this area. You might want to check out this independent site that rates all radar detectors. While the Valentine 1 is one of the top 4 they list (third place) there are better detectors for less money. I am planning on getting the Escort Passport 8500.

P.S. Sorry for the duplicate info (same as post above) we posted the same info :smile: at the sime time. Great minds think alike #388!

The best is Valentine One.
It is the only detector that see 4 different
directions:
FRONT
REAR
LEFT SIDE
RIGHT SIDE
It also tells you " HOW MANY".
It has saved me 4 or 5 tickets.
The normal radar detector goes off,
you could have 1,2,3 or more police.
It only goes off....
Valentine One only way to go..

Regardless of how many radar sources or from which direction they are coming from the first thing to do when receiving a warning is to SLOW DOWN. The earlier the warning, the easier to slow down in time.

Radar Detectors? Bah. I just painted my black beauty in the radar-absorbing paint from the F-117A Stealth fighter. Sure it's acidic, and sure it's not as glossy, but I can go as fast as I want. :lol: Actually, I just have a CobraES8500 (i believe that's what it's called). Can't afford the superiority of Valentine.
