It's still the Valentine. Being upgradeable, it never gets old. It can also be attached to radar and laser deflection equipment.

This post does not necessarily condone the use of equipment that is illegal where you live.

They are illegal in some states. There is a concealed display for those worried about getting in trouble. I have all but committed to getting this product.

Or you could be a real man and do it up the right way. Perks include auto-dimming and homelink.

Passport 9500i or V1. Have owned both, prefer passport because of the features but its personal preference. You will be happy with either one

I've heard this is the best http://www.escortradar.com/9500i.htm

You can't really compare the V1 to that one though, because the 9500i is much newer.

To see if a detector or jammer is illegal where you live go here. It covers US, Canada and many other countries as well.

I can speak for Virginia. They are definitely illegal. From my 10 year tenure up there I'll probably never own another one again. Not like I speed excessively anyway, I rarely go more than 9+ on the Interstate...but my wife on the other hand....

I have the Passport 9500i and like it. If you are lasered all the passport will do is tell you how fast you are going and it is time for a ticket....pull over. The laser beam is so small you won't have stray signals that can be picked up by a detector most of the time.

In some States it is illegal to run detectors, the STI Belltronics sends no signal back to the Hwy Patrol that tell them you have a detector.
