I've only used an Escort Passport on all my cars since 2003. I highly recommend them. You just gotta remember they're radar detectors and not cop detectors. They're expensive but they pay for themsves the first time it saves you.

Ive had some higher dollar escorts and a beltronics v8. They both get the job done for me. Escort redline is suppose to be very good, my friend has it and yes it is good but its like the same thing as my Beltronics V8 really. Let me know if you need some discounts on this stuff man. I got a buddy that works at a best buy and they get good discounts on this stuff.

yes these things pay for themselves within a few months. or at at most a year. depending on riding/driving style.

I have an Escort Solo that I run on the bike from time to time. Dont worry about it being AA powered. They shut down before the bats get low enough to affect range. Any of their offerings are my recommendation. The Solo will not require wiring and can be moved between vehicles easily. Mine have never let me down. I use it daily. Its my second in 10 years. Im on my second because the first was stolen.
