Radar Detectors.

Just curious, can you still buy radar detectors? I have seen them on the web advertised in the USA but not here.

Re: Radar Detectors.

Yeah here in WA it is legal to buy them and install them in your car except there is a law that says you are not actually allowed to use them or something stupid like that.

Re: Radar Detectors.

turboute, as a radar detector user, i've never heard that!

the closest thing to that was when the cops were tryin to give me a hard time one night(couldnt even sticker me!! haha) and they threatened to give me a 100 dollar fine for having the detector obstructing my view.

(in my three times of being pulled over, and numerous booze buses, only once they said something)

Re: Radar Detectors.

Rod:

I recommend the following source:

www.goparts.com.au

The Bel 990i is the go - not that I'd know anything about it if you get my drift..... The ability to software upgrade is the key to the usefulness of these devices.

The ultimate is the LR remote although you will have to assess your car to see how well it can be concealed and still remain effective.
