I have been using radar detectors since age 16 that would give me over 30 years experience. I have had about every radar detector make available to include cobra, whistler, valentine, uniden, escort, and bel. I was using a escort ix until recently when I found vortex on youtube and modified my valentine after sending it back for a upgrade a few months ago and they basically sent me a new one and run v1 driver with it. In my city they use KA band only. I have only received 1 speeding ticket in my life. Knowing how to use traffic to your advantage and a radar detector together were what I use to my advantage. I have driven too many miles to count including driving 90 miles one way everyday for a year to Atlanta, Ga for work and at least 50 trips to Tuscaloosa , Al which is a 3 1/2 hour drive and to many to count to Panama City and Destin, Fl. Nothing can overcome driving experience and learning how your detector operates in your driving situation.

The one ticket I got was for 10 over going to Atlanta and He was training someone, He asked if my detector worked and I said yes and I asked him if he pulled me over for 10 over and he said yes. I told him I would be back the next day and never saw him again.
