I think I need to buy a *good* radar detector. I have heard that the Valentine One is good. What do you guys recommend?

Also, something slightly off topic: Does anyone use air freshners. (and I dont mean those stupid pine trees -- is there something good out there? need something classy for my baby

I've used a top of the line BEL for many years in my car and never got a ticket. They're good for the price.

My friend has had it for a year and a half... so far, he hasn't gotten any, and he typically exceeds speeds faster than 85mph

Damn... You guys are freaking lucky... Radar detectors are illegal here in VA... Do cops know if you have radar detectors? Like... um... from distance? Do you get caught if you place the detector where cops can't see it? Just wondering... Never had detectors and don't know how they work....

the Cops supposedly have a radar detector detector, so they can tell that you have one from a distance. My brother's radar detector has a radar detector detector jammer that hides it. He said this was a common feature in radar detectors. I can't remember off hand which brand my bro is using tho...

man that was a mouthfull....

The Valentine 1 is supposed undetectable to Radar Detector Detectors. One of my friend's husband used to work the VA state police...he laughed at the notion of the detector detector and said they rarely use it because they don't have that many to go round to all the guys. Then again, this might have changed cuz now VA apparently has enough money to have those damn helicopters out and about to get us for speeding.
