not to sure but escorts newest one out there is suppose to be really good.. but the only thing those save ya from is regular K, Ka band radar ,
esp if they are running with the radar on, that signal goes for a long ways...
and if your detector goes off from laser its to late hes already got ya LOL . but the Escort's are good

Get a v1.. Very intricate system that is extremely programable to suite your needs... Check out the radar forums and educate yourself.

yeap Valentine 1 is the best out there, I had it for like 3 years and never got a speeding ticket with that, Valentine 1 cost $400, or you can buy a laser jammer, it works better and it also cost more but check first if they are legal in your state

anything that deals with Lasers are regulated by FDA and laser jammers are legal last time I looked few years ago... unlike radar jammers which are regulated by the FCC and are not legal anywhere in the U.S.

I have the Escort X50 with a radar screamer. I have the radar wedged between the windscreen and dash using the suction cups. This set up has worked well for me on several bikes over the years.

i put on a valentine one and love it. The best part about it is it shows you which way the rader is coming from. Here is some pic's of install. I used the power and ground leads going to the instrumental panal and made a bracket to mount.










i now using a light smoked sheild and made a longer bracket to remount the valentine one and added the remote audio adapter under the v1. Just need to order a chatter box xbi2 next for wireless hook up.
nice
