    just remember that there is lots of cobra models more waves and bands the radar has is better, if 360 degrees is common and good

    I bought the Cobra XRS 9730 a few months back. I paid $190 for it. Since most cops use instant on it works just as good as the $300 escort passport ( i bought one and took it back) also as good as the bel-65 (took it back also)

    if u can afford $400 valentine is the way to go ......if not the top cobras are as good as the other more $$$$$ detectors IMO

    Dont forget a police scanner....they are awesome....i got a handheld for $99....worth its weight in gold

    the only bad thing about jammers is that if a cop really wanted you <(which they always want sport cars) is that he can just radar the car near you if going the same speed. even thoe there not allowed to ,"there the cops" and if they really want to be a dick the can just say unsafe speed on conditions.

    radio shack......http://www.cityfreq.com/ this will give you your local police channels to key into your scanner.......when the cops pull someone over they give their location....when they get a call they report where they are coming from.....they always have to report in where they are so the dispatcher knows where the closest cop is when they get calls

    so I listen all the time and when I wanna race or have some fun I usually know where da law is....scanner and radar detector are my best friends that ride with me lol


    the range on my handheld is around 30 miles....if u wannna spend more $$$ u can go mobile base unit with 1,000 channels or get digital scanner

    not that I have done it but u can even pick up cordless phones/cell with some scanners
    other stuff u can pick up.......airplanes, trains, wal-mart walkie talkies, drive thru headsets etc......there are web-sites that give channels for all that stuff
