    My wife and I were out for a drive in the new car after it was stored all winter. She was doing 15 over in a very noticeable car. R3 alerted and she slowed down to PSL with plenty of time to spare. She's talked her way out of worse in the past but unlikely this time. She's taken an interest in learning how to use it and it's paid off. It's great for us both since we tend push it at times.

    This is our first RD and save. Great feeling and happy we have the unit. Not foolproof, but another layer of protection.

    Awesome
    Detectors are effective to a degree at any speed but work exceptionally well in the 10-14 over range
    It keeps your feet from getting caught in a CO trip wire and all the leos that own you at +20 usually wont even fire at +13

    Nice! The first save is always a good feeling, the rest of them feel good too, especially if your rabbit gets taken down in front of you! Waze and the RD together make a decent team, laser is the only weakness but Waze does help with that! Good luck out there :)
