    That gave me a massive headache. I couldn't imagine being in that car during the test.

    Speedtraphunter = The Veil Guy, whose blog I linked to above. You're right though, probably the best "independent" tester there is, although he does own the Comapny that makes Veil anti laser coating.

    Best radar detector depends on your individual needs and your location. Give me a PM and we can discuss the best unit for you and your budget.

    My entire crew has them in our cars, so when we're heading down rural 474, I always know what's ahead and what's ahead of me, due to the spotters or whomever is in our trucks. We also have stationary units in the docks, so I can yell at people for stuff.

    Likewise, since most business is conducted late at night/early in the morning, there are a hundred other trucks, both commercial big-rigs and standard Chevy/Ford work trucks heading down the road, all of them more than willing to tell us who is ahead of us, help spot any trouble or just talk. Locals in the area also use them at home, including two in particular, one of whom has a massive watchtower that overlooks the highway. If you switch between infrequent channels or get a handheld that operates on different frequencies and pick up other conversations. Rural 474 goes around the state park and past rural and historic Groveland/Clermont and most people who live there own a dozen acres, so there is never traffic, so it is better than 27 and all it's traffic lights. If you go to the South end of it heading into Polk City, you need "spotters" in front of and behind your rig.



    The Pirates don't just harass truckers though and several times in the past, faux-unmarked cars were used to set up blockades or pull people over to rob them.

    Police on that end always LOVE me, because my car makes me look like a smuggler and/or highway-pirate, but I bet it's just racial profiling of the Irish, because that's one of our few traditional occupations, because I bed they don't pick on every Hearse with wig-wags, sirens and a flip-down plate that comes through there. Honestly, I hope none of them are reading this,because they aren't aware of that.



    In spite of this, I consider radar detectors to be impractical nonsense.

    You're probably right...better keep this "CB" stuff to yourself, otherwise it could put all the RD manufacturers out of business!

    It's more than it they realize I'm driving the most cliche smuggling vehicle AND it has Sirens,wig-wags, brakelamp cutoff switches and whatnot...They may get a bit suspicious.

    I have a friend who collects antique radios. Never tried opening a chat with him. I also used to work with a Mad Russian who had a series of antenna on his car for his Radios. As usual, Cadillacs are Superior. I can use my hood ornament as a functional CB antenna.

    Not really. You can either turn on or turn of complete bands and you can only Auto Mute on K band. Why you cant automute on all bands in beyond me. Dont get me wrong the V1 is a great windshield mounted HIGHWAY detector but if you want to use it in the city as well get a GX65 or Escort 9500ix (If you want a windshield mounted detector) where you can mark and ignore all false alerts. Also if you travel through Virginia or Washington DC where they use RDD's (Radar Detector Detectors) to find cars that have radar detectors they can easily detect the V1 from as far away as 1000FT.
