I've got an R3 and an R7 that I'm not giving up..... But agreed, look around for used ones at a discount.
I have an R3 in my daily. That thing has paid for itself just saving me from red light cameras alone. I just like having an arrow to tell me where the signal is coming from for cops.I've got an R3 and an R7 that I'm not giving up..... But agreed, look around for used ones at a discount.
I still have my Passport 8500 (doesn't get used anymore). Used that through college while I was driving 35 miles one way to campus and back. That saved me thousands as well. I am 32 years old and have been driving since 15/16. I have never gotten a ticket *knock on wood* and I can honestly say it is because I've had a radar detector since I was in high school - my first one was a cheapy Cobra radar detector that was less than $100 at best buy or walmart. Once you know the common false alert spots (although the new one can lock them out) and that you should only way attention to KA and K, it becomes a great tool.I’m an escort fan myself. I like how you can lock out the false alarms and it remembers if you passed a false 3 times. On all my normal routes, if it goes off, it’s a cop. Has saved me literal thousands of dollars.
