My valentine V1 has not failed me yet.

But a passport works pretty decently as well.

bumping for interest. Just paid a $200 fine for 10 over, makes it seem like a one time investment of $100 might not be a bad idea and they're legal in my state, but what brand?

Though, I can tell you that 100 isnt really gonna get you an amazing detector.

The good ones are more in the ~$500 range. Escort, Valentine, or Beltronics are the way to go.

The only radar you need is your brain.
and only detector you need is your eyes.
Godspeed friend.

my buddys hot mom has one on her audi and it works really well, but be warned if you drive through a shopping district, they do pick up on the signal automated doors give off...

There are some with GPS that learn the false hits and don't go crazy in parking lots if it bothers you.
