    Where in IN? I got one 80/94W by undercover black Mustang going 74 in a 55. Saw him, but it was too late. He was in the middle of traffic. Had my radar detector in the SS.

    Had never heard of that, but looked it up. We were in southern IN a few weeks back fishing at Patoka Lake.

    And the chargers are 143 i believe.
    SUVs run around 112 or so...
    It was a few weeks ago so im not 100% sure on those numbers. But i kno how most of cops cant drive that well and around here...they normally dont expect people to run.
    it is probably different all over the place..but i thought i heard on high speed pursuits they are not allowed to go over 100 miles a hours.

    I have a Valentine 1 and it has saved me so many times I've lost count. All in all it depends on where you live though. Here in Alabama I get warnings as far as a half mile ahead of me or better, but they generally have theirs on full time.
    If you get "gunned", it will only beep once if someone is ahead of you so you have to pay attention. If you're on the road alone and get gunned, you are screwed.

Had a cop sitting on the side of the road in a parking lot and the detector didnt even go off until i was 100 feet away from him.
    Paid $200 for it and does its job well
    *U can improve the side function of the Escort radar reception by installing an small piece of non aluminum in the front,,its jon is to reflect eh radar engery from the side into the main head...i dont have a pic,,it dont take much,,just a small piece like 1 inch by 1/2 inch,,,juet a small liberal piece of metal causes the radar to be bounced into the main bell..

    One can also if they are smart open there escort up,,,and inside where the metal radar head trap is,,,u can cut in small slits on the side to increase the side radar pick up..
    But I have to say,,so far when my escort goes off..it goes off and pick up cops way in front of me,,,or on teh side,,,but if they are on your side or in front,,U should know when that radar goes off to slow down.....

    Bashem you bought a radar dector for 98 bucks what do you expect? I have a cobra xrsr10g and it works like a charm. My girlfriend at the time bought it for me and it was like 250 bucks. Its picked up cops that are almost a mile a way. Its been said before you get what you pay for.

    I paid 100 dollars for mine and have had it about 8 years now. Works flawlessly.
