Do a search, radar detectors are well covered here.

I'm using the Escort Max 360c and it's been great for me so far.

Cool. Ive been looking at the 360c. Best i can find is $500 for one on ebay. I guess the coin is worth it

I have had tried many of the top units and now have the best range with the Uniden R3 for a portable.

I was taking a look at Whistler cr97, although i do like the arrows on the 360c. Radenso pro M seems decent too, but no arrows

Still using the V1 for the past 17-19 years. Tried the R7 a few weeks ago. Sent it back. (dialed deeply into the V1 and very difficult to change). Waze and V1 - no tickets/citations. Only time pulled over is due to no front plate or window tint (which is legal). Lots of great products out there and can't go wrong with the suggestions and/or other threads regarding detectors.

running the r7 here in the bay area and CHP hides on 280 all day everyday. Ka only - saved me the price of the detector in the first month. this plus the scanner app for call-ins "hey this car just went by me SOOOO fast.." reports = CHP on my a$$ multiple times with no PC, just speculation.

Love my Valentine. Can’t get one right now, production woes. Saved me many times including the radar equipped Tribal Police in the Nevada hinterland.

I use an R3, it hasn’t let me down yet. Bought one for my boy for Christmas as well after he got 2 tickets this past year.

Both of mine are refurbs, one I had about a year now the other just aquired, both arrived looking like brand new. I’d buy another refurb personally

Uniden R3 with Blendmount and mirror tap. I bought my Uniden from Bestradartectors. $140 off msrp $299. Also a good site with videos how to set up virtually every radar detector they sell. Ca uses KA band and laser. I have list of recommended settings for CA for the Uniden.

I just bought Escort Max 360c from Best Buy. 0% Interest for 12 months if you have account... hahaha. I am sure it will pay for itself the way I drive on a daily basis. Already catching the ghost troopers in blacked out Chargers sitting around the New Orleans area. The arrows are useful btw.

yeah I just turned off K band altogether, since 95% of my driving is CA only. LOVE the distance on this bad boy! I bought my brother the R3 for xmas for his 2SS
