  1. great detector review by Tyler on 11/8/2010
    Rating

    Great response time and range although some laser faults around densly populated areas. Would be better if frequency could be displayed alongside alert bars. Overall a strong product with many recent saves. I would redcommend this product to the 10-15mph over speeders
