    Valentine One hands down the best you can get. Expensive but worth every penny.

    actually, I think you can load an app that connects with radar detector and includes police sightings right on UConnect. I have Escort Live app on my phone and it ties in. I might see what other radar options there are and if they have a similar app. :)

    Would be fun to have a jammer and set it for 180 then drive by him at 25MPH

    I have several, all new models, the Valintine One, by far is my favorite. The directional arrows have saved my butt more that once.

    Valentine One for me. I've been using it on my Challengers since 2009 and it has saved my bacon and wallet many a time. It is great for situation awareness on the road.

    For me, whether it is sensing something or not, it is a good reminder to help keep me within the posted limits; even more so when it does go off.

    I have used Valentine One since the 90's. Upgraded firmware, sent it back for upgrades twice. Several of my friends have bought them after riding with me and becoming frustrated with other brands. Strongly recommend.

    V1 all the way. I tried escort once a year or so back, it was terrible. I read people saying, yeah, but others report where cops are and and and AND it would be great if that was true but I never experienced it to be true. It beeped, sure, but the V1 beeped earlier. 1 mile forward, back and 1/2 mile around you.. protective bubble wrap. :D

    The arrows make all the difference.
