Never ceases to amaze
If you're in the market for a radar detector, I would highly suggest this product. This was my first detector and GPS and I couldn't be happier. I figured go big or go home, and I'm glad; TRUST ME -- it's worth it to wait just a little bit longer to save up that extra bit of $ to get this state-of-the-art, must have (for any driver). Other detecters may be good, I'm sure, but I'm also sure this is THE best there is.
