What radar detectors are you guys using?? Would u change up?? post your experiences here,
I'm posting this because we impala peeps seem to have lead feet lol.
As for me, I have a valentine1. For me personally it was the best one i could find. Quite a bit pricey (after all accessories was around $500 or so). However it does not give me BS warnings when there's a train coming through town 2 towns away. I could care less about that.
this thing is sweet, as it senses your speed and below 30 mph it automatically mutes itself, so theres no annoying beeps when your in town bouncing around slowly. It still lights up tho. I also like that it tells you which direction the radar signal is coming from (thanks to its neat arrows built into it). And the range of this thing is awesome up to 2 miles of range on it. And the other thing I like is it has the ability to show you multiple warnings. ex. yesterday i was driving and there was a speed trap happening. Good ol V1 was working like crazy, and it showed 4 signals coming in. After passing the first trap, I saw that one still going behind me but the other 3 were still ahead of me. sure enough, 3 more cops spread out about 1/2 mile from each other. That was extremely helpful to see.
I've had tons of other detectors (even the escort redline which I really liked but had no directional capability). And by far this has my vote for favorite detector.
here's all accessories i put on this, in case you guys want to dig into it.
-valentine1 radar detector ($399)
-v1 connection le (for bluetoothing android or iphone) $45
-Savvy (connects right to your cars serial port, and monitors your speed and mutes automatically at whatever speed you decide) $69
any radar detector make sure you mount the most center of the windshield for optimal performance, some brands to carry a mount for rear view mirror, which is the absolute best position (it can see front sides and out rear window)
