clear weather , no mountains and you can pick up signal for radar or laser from about 2.5 miles away. It also tells you if its in front, behind, or on the sides of you. Awesome product for the money.

I buy everthing I can on ebay and it's not ebay you need to trust, it's the seller. The trick is to; read the discription thoroughly, know exactly what you want to buy (down to the part #), know what they charge for shipping (don't get ripped off here either), and only buy from sellers with good feedback. That's the most important one, the feedback. A lot of tranactions and 100% rating is the best. If they have 5000+ transactions and a rating of 99.6%... If they have 10 transactions and a rating of 93%...

There are only 2 that I would trust in my cars:

V1 - they are $400 each and only available from Valentineone.com . The ones on Ebay are mostly older versions. The current one is version 1.8. It includes pop radar detection which is what the latest technology being used by the Highway patrol. If you had bought an older system, you can send it back to the manufacturer to be updated to current standards. This costs $70. I use this on my C5 and it is a proven radar detector by many.

Passport 8500 X50 - Made by Escort Radar (used to employ Mr. Valentine) and it has beaten the V1's v1.7. Comes in blue and red LED versions (identical but blue is $50 more). It looks better than the V1 in looks and works just as great. No arrows but you have the option in integrating it with Escort's radar evader. It costs $300 brand new.

Both systems come with a guarantee. Buy it, use it for 30 days and if not satisfies, send them back. You can also buy USED ones/returned ones by contacting the manufacturer.

I have used the passport 8500 for atleast 4 years it has been amazing. I cant believe that it still works. I will be getting the new 9500 though. It is more updated and it will auto log false alarm spots with the built in GPS so it dosent go off where it is not supposed to.
