Radar detectors - for Speeding

Does anyone have recommendations?

I am in the market for a 2014 Camaro and I want to enjoy it.

Enjoy it = safely speed when I can. Keyword = safely.

All of the reasonably priced ones ($100-$200) are crazy. Crazy meaning you cant understand them. Why do I have to purchase one for $400 just for it too say Speedcamera.

The reasonable ones say Ka band etc.

Does anyone have a word to point me in a reasonably priced direction?

Buy a "refurbished" Escort Passport 8500 x50 from Car Toys $175. like $325 new. pics up amazing. (regular car mounted radar up to 2mi away, ofcourse has to be perfect conditions for that) but even the refurbs have a 6mo warranty. and Escort has AMAZING quality anyways. you wont be sorry.

I bought a Beltronics top of the line 3 years ago, which means its sorely in need of upgrading. Agree with the previous post. The Escort X50 won the most recent head to head to head test and $175 is a steal!

Greetings Tony Stark,

Glad to hear that you're in the market for a 2014 Camaro! Nice choice! Are you going to be making some test drives before you purchase? Also, which trim you are thinking about getting?
