    a quick question. if a radar detector is illegal in a state, how does a cop know you have one? does he have to pull you over to see it, or do they have some instrument for detecting it? i know it might be a stupid question, but my parents live in VA and im going to school in WV, so when i go...

    So in reading my owner's manual I see a bit about that area behind the rearview mirror not having the special IR reflective coating to allow electronic devices to function properly. Does this imply that the coating would affect a radar/laser detector's ability to receive signal? I drive in VA...

    My cousin wants to wire his radar detector into his truck instead of having it plug into the cigarette lighter thing. We were thinking we could tap into the 12V wire that goes to the cigarette lighter. Could we do this? We opened up the adapter to see what the wires looked like and there is...

    I know radar may be illegal for most of you but for me, living in MA, it's luckily legal. I currently have the Cobra PRO-9780 system but it doesn't work that well. I was wondering what everyone else uses or reccomends? A few friends of mine have the Valentine System and the Passport... I know...

    Does anyone have some suggestions on radar detectors? I want something simple, cheap, yet efficent. I have seen detectors for 60 bucks. I assume these are crap. I actually don't like the design of the valentine, I would just assume have it mounted wherever, I don't want it hidden. I really...

    ANSWER: When at 4:15 AM you're going 90mph on a desterted Connecticut highway connector, Valentine 1 turned on, but the state trooper "clocks" you at 90mph while glued to your rear bumper with his lights off. I was cruising to get to a fishing spot real early Saturday morning. Four lanes of...

    So I got my new detector and was wondering how everyone else powers theirs. Connected to a switched powerso it comes on with the car. Use the on/off switch? My last one I left on and just connected to the fuse panel so it powered up with the car. Is that safe for detectors?

    Am I missing something or is THE only place to buy/order a Valentine radar detector from Valentine's own web site? Isn't there any other source that participates in that wonderfully American tradition of free market negotiating and price/Demand? I want the product but I'm not sure I've found the...
