Uniden R7 is you want an all in one package.

V1G2 is a great step up from the G1, and much quieter, with great range. I would consider jammers if you can.

Yeah, I'll second the R7 and/or the R3, but, if truly a speed demon, you're going to need additional counter-measurers to defend against lidar. Consider all of these factors prior to finalizing your decision.

Ohh, Welcome Aboard, Modat !!!!!!!

You've got some great options for $500! If you want all functionality in one package, go with the R7. If you don't mind needing a phone to get some of the same functionality, go with the V1G2 with either V1Driver or V1Companion.

NJ also has a lot of LTI lidar guns, so you may want to think about ALP for lidar defense down the road.
