Default Radar or the "Cloak Unit" (that screws up radar gun)?

What is the best detector on the market? Are those radar detectors that disperse the cops signal guns worth the money? Do they really work?Do they really make your car undetectable to the radar guns?

One of my good friends is an officer for a local department and ive asked him about this. I'm not sure about your state but here in cali they are illegal. Even if it does succeed in scrambling the signal the officer will have an insentive to pull you over because his radar gun will return an error and that in itself will make the officer suspicious. Radar/Lidar detectors however are legal.

I have a K40 undetectable with the single antenna. It ROCKS!! Always saves my *** and all that "shows" is one red LED.

I remember back in 84 I was using a kustom signal kr-10 x band traffic radar from a stationary position. I had a car come around a curve about 1.5 miles from me and I had a fuzzy doppler tone and some big numbers then all of the sudden it cleared up and became strong with a speed reading of 55 which was the posted limit on that stretch of road. That car immediately pulled over and turned around and left my jurisdiction. I'm positive that whoever they were they had a jammer and it worked quite effectively. I'm also sure that they figured out that whoever was running that radar had figured that out as well which is why they hauled butt the other way. It's hard to say how effective a jammer would be against k or ka band radar without doing some tests.

Not sure about other states, but here in Georgia most police agencies have "instant-on" radars. That means the officer has a button he pushes that temporarily stops the radar antenna from sending anything.When a car comes into range, he simply pushes the button and up pops your speed.Many officers,(including ones I know) <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" /> can almost have your speed locked in before your radar detector goes off.Lidar (lasers) are also another hard to beat detection device used around here.As for the jammers, most of the newer radar units have an RFI (radio frequency interference) light that will come up when the radar is picking up a funky signal.That lets the officer know something is messing with the radar beam.FYI!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="gr_images/icons/cool.gif" />

Don't waste money on trying to jam radar, just go ahead and buy a Valentine 1 and be done with it. Won't die in winters and is UNBELIEVABLE on the highway. I have seen up to a 2 mile range in the past!

Yeah, I get similar range with my K40. Look into a K40 if you don't want something in your window or on your visor.
As far as the instant on, it still emits a signal that is picked up by good radar detectors. It is emitting the signal before he "clocks" you and you should have slowed down by then.
