Photo Radar
"Have anyone heard about that kind of radar"?
Ok, I was going home (NJ) from PA, my passport ix gave me an alert of a K band,
didn't really care as I know K band usually not a real police alert.(didn't slow down, I was at 65 mph in 55 mph)
and few seconds later, I see a fixed radar (like the ones that you guys see by the tolls) , and a big suv right next to it,
when I passed it, I looked behind in my rear view mirror, and I saw a camera flash.
I went home and checked online, found out that there is something called photo radar
never heard of it, never seen it before,
I hope it didn't cloak me though..

Yeah lots of areas use for photo radar. Here in MD they have mobile units called SafeDriver that are actually mounted on Jeep Liberty's you'll see them at the end of construction areas and they'll snap pics of ppl speeding in the work zone. There's such a narrow window that its gonna be hard for a radar detector to alert u in time because the radar is pointing the way you're going (not the way you're coming from).

It's $181 in Arizona. Although, the fixed photo radar units on the highways have been outlawed. Not that it mattered, a RD didn't pick up on those cameras. I'm running an 8500 x50 that has performed marvelously and paid for itself several times over.

I have been a BEL PRO 75 used for the last 9 nine years, had it my Honda Accord, Dodge Charger, and now my Max. Reasons, i drive fast, the Bel is a remote unit with 360 degree radar and laser detection and laser jamming. The unit is pricey, almost as much as the Passport 9500 which if I would have upgraded to if i had sold my Max for a 2005 MB E55(which I didnt, and wont, but did want to..lol)
I like the Bel because it is reliable, has VG-2, which is mandatory for me since radar detectors are illegal in VA, i believe the Passport upgrades included GPS memory, and stealth from the new Spectre system the fuzz are using in certain states.
And I like the fact that it is hard wired and concealed.

Just be careful if you ever drive into Ontario. Apart from detectors being illegal there along with confiscation on the spot and a $1000 fine with 3 points, they can detect VG-2 shielded detectors as well via their Spectre IV RDD units. I already lost one V1 up there, not about to lose another .

Hi Guys i just want to post an interesting trial regarding the laser jammer
So I had a friend of mine, he is a cop, so I asked him if we can use his Laser gun and do a test for my blinder m27 laser jammer
And guess what?
My Blinder M27 did jammed his laser gun and only gave him my distance but no speed.
He could not believe himself
It is worth it. Just to let u know
Thx

Does anyone on the forum use the 9500ci. i am definitely looking into getting this one. I plan on keeping the max long term and dont like things on my windshield or rear view mirror. I notice the rear detector mounts on the plate and I wondered how well it worked with a rear view camaera as well. I may have to decide on a different camera for the system I am piecing together slowly.
