Honestly a Radar detector can only save u so much as it doesn't detect when the cop's radar device isn't on and u could be doing 100 past him and then your screwed. Radar Detectors only works if the cop has his radar device on. A how a Radar Detector works is it picks up radio frequencies from the cop's radar device to detect your speed and your Radar detector will go off to let u know there is a cop around and that's when u know to slow down. It also detects laser but if you get laser detection that means a cop is pointing a laser radar gun right at u and at this point it's pretty much too late to slow down.

M27. Ya only need 2 jammers for the front. The m47 is for larger vehicles such as trucks... they come with 4..

I'd go with the V1... arrows are great!

Im also looking into getting a radar detector. I am basically down to 2 detectors at this point, either the passport escort 9500ix and the valentine1. Heres my conclusion, from doing some research, I realized the valentine unit is a bit better in strength however, I am leaning more towards the 9500ix for one main reason... The 9500ix has the red light camera and the speeding camera detector whereas the valentine one is clueless with the cameras.... I live in Philly and there is an increase in the usage of red light cameras so the escort is very useful... what do you guys think?

Also let say State Trooper or cop does eventually pulls me over for unreadable speed reading than what? When he ask if I have a radar jammer? Yes or No?
B/c I can't lie to the officer and yet I don't want to tell him..

I don't know the laws in MD, but I'm not sure they can pull you over for "unreadable" speed. They can of course pull you over anyway for a bunch of other "reasons". However, the most important thing is, are radar detectors or laser jammers illegal in your state? If they are not, then there is no reason to lie about having them.

You need to know how to use them...

I pair it with my V1, my V1 will go off when I'm hit from laser and the jammer goes off when hit with the laser...

You have to slow down then turn off the jammer so he can get your reading..

Then turn it back on when you pass him...



But it has saved me countless times, because most police officers use laser.



These things aren't meant to be going 100mph on the interstate and expecting not to get caught...

No, but they can for reckless driving and its at the police officers discretion..
