I learned to drive in a fast truck, my old Ram 1500 had 250 HP from the 360 V8 that was in it. So that's why rarely do more than 5-7 over, unless I'm passing, when I'm passing, I floor it and the car goes into Warp speed...

I have gotten only 1 ticket. However I've passed many cops going too fast. They ignore me because I look like a grandpa and then nab the red mustang going slower than me (yet still too fast). Happened more than once actually!

What I mean is, is it really worth that much more money than say a $150-200 detector? Does it give that much more of an advanced warning or far more sensitivity?

It's pretty good! Though I am on the second one, the southern heat fried the first one I had. :S



Anyone have any luck with the jamming kind? Supposed to be able to not be detected if you did fly by a cop over speed.
