Hello everyone it’s a pleasure to meet you all, my name is Hamza. I’ve lived in Chicago mostly all of my life, and have also been fascinated with radar detectors since I got my license. My first detector ever was the valentine one I purchased in 07, and it lasted a decent amount of time before it got stolen.
Following that I decided to get a second valentine one detector because I loved the fact it never went obsolete until I decided to sell it in late 2018 and jump ship for uniden r3. I initially hated the detector mainly because of so many false blind spot and door sensor trips.
So again I jumped ship and finally got a Radenso pro M, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Theia upon its release.

Welcome aboard! I'm in Chicago as well and use the Pro M! Also used to be a V1 user too. Waiting for the new V1 and Theia... 2020 is a great year!

I'm up on the North side. Did you know the speed cameras here are MRCT? You can turn on MRCT Narrow and MR Filter high if you wanted to pick them up. You'll get a few "MT" falses from car BSMs though.

hello my friend and it’s nice to know a fellow Chicagoan is on here that also is a Radenso enthusiast like me. Yes I have enabled those settings, and they work so well, and I also can’t wait until Theia comes out as I’m literally counting down the days.

otherwise the pro m is so impressive and I will give this detector to my mom once I get the Theia so she can get to enjoy it as well.

Welcome! I used to visit Chicago often when I was younger to see family but that has been a while now. Visiting a cousin there, they had cable when we didn’t. We watched MTV launch their channel then walked to the local store to buy Laffy Taffy. Anyhow, that was a long time ago. Ha.

Welcome! Nice detector! Have you thought about any laser protection or do you not see that much in Chicago?
