    Escort Redline and Escort Max have my vote. I have been an Escort owner for years, they have saved me from numerous tickets. The Max has a nice display and the live update features is very nice, especially in my neck of the woods.

    As with most electronics depends on how much do you want to spend. I use the escort 9500ix on the three vehicles I use and they work fine, but I've found at least in S. Florida they are using radar less and less. Get an app called "WAZE" - it provides real time data on road conditions, hazards and police traps.

    I have a Beltronics STi Magnum- sending it in for an update that allows you to turn off features that are not needed and will increase response time so they say- -

    They company that makes them owns Cobra and Escort-

    Trying to figure out the one to buy is not easy - everyone seems to like a certain one-

    I do know that if a police officer pulls behind you with no radar and paces you you're toast - I'm older and wiser so I don't speed like I did when I was younger :)

    V1....have had the same unit for probably 12 years, still works perfect and wouldn't trade it for any of the escort models even if given the chance now. It's chatty sometimes but it works.

    I have a MAX360 in my everyday ride, I like it but it is noisy. I have a Redline in my HC and a little better, but low tech. Check out Stinger CI. Supposed to be the best custom unit, but is super pricey.
