dude, get the V1, i love mine... well worth it!!! Hell mines even outdated, i bought mine a year and a half ago, and no tickets since, always picks up the cops by me. You would be also surpised how many cops dont have their radars on.

I even took it on a 1300 mile road trip.. we did 85 the whole way thanks to Mr V1!!! it did pick up some piggys on the way down. :D:D

So where online is the cheapest place to get this passport 8500??
:angel:
I bought it Car Toys when they had a sell for $279.99... I use to own V1 and like it, but I got too many false alarms driving in the city, where with the 8500 I get none or if I did, it would just mute itself.

umm...... i have a question. i know it's legal to have a radar detector in your car and cops can't really do much about it. but for sure if they see it running in your car they probably won't appreciate it and get all arse around you....

so let's say, you are under speed limit, using your radar, and this cop comes up behind you and pull you over. do you try to take down the rader detector?? if no, and when he walks up to you and say, "why you have it here" what would be your response?

basically i am trying to know what i should do if i haev my radar detector on and a cop pulls me over.

i have and love my bel vector 95. a couple of my friends have passport 8500's and they like them....i have to admit the smartcord is very convenient. and i bought my girlfriend a k40 and she really likes it. i think as long as you stick to one of these or the v1 (too damn expensive imo) you will be alright.

from my experience w/ my radar detector it has been great. especially on the k and ka bands which is what is primarily used here in fl. my radar detector was going off one day and when i passed the cop that was speed trapping i clicked the reset on my trip meter and i had gone 1.2 miles before i stopped registering some radar. not bad.

It should be fine, I think only VA radar detector is not allowed. Fvck if I care what cops think if they see me with a radar detector, just as long as I don't get another ticket or go to jail again.....:D

AGAIN? :sqnteek:

explain
I was 17, been a month since I got my license, parents bought me a new type R cause my grades n stuff. Well I broke it in then decided to race. Raced a mustang, mustang suddenly braked hard, I kept going, cop stop me, then the mustang sped by, cop went after mustang, I try to drive off, cop sped back doing some dukes of hazard shit and stopped right in front of me with the mustang driver in the backseat. I got out, got cuffed, went to jail for like doing 123mph in like 35 or something. Went to jail until my dad came and got me. Dad came, I wanted to cry and stay there.... that's it..... oh and I got a big hefty thousand dollar "speed contest" fine, went to class n stuff oh and license was suspended until I turned 18. Which was only 11 months away, but it sucked asking people for rides....
