    anybody here in the states who uses Radar/Laser detectors?
    Is it really as useful as they claim? Or is it just a waste of money?
    (coming from the "autobahn of asia", speedlimits really are a bummer... lolz.... )

    if it does do what it claims, what are the good brands and features that I should look for?

    thanks in advance for the info.

    Pre, OK na investment ang radar detector..... it saved me on numerous times from being caught for speeding. Ayaw din naming mag-radar dati but nung nahuli ang wife ko for doing 15mph over the speed limit at nagbayad kami ng $150.00, bumili na rin kami.

    BTW, I'm using a Bel Vecotr 990 radar detector. Got it on sale sa Circuit City a year and a half ago......

    Look for a radar detector that responds to all types of radar currently used by the police... yung sa akin programmable na magdagdag ng radar type kung may bago. May autoscan din sya which is nice kasi hindi na ako magkakalikot pa to adjust the radar from highway mode to city mode. Also, halos lahat ng radar ngayon may 360 degree protection. Isa pa, ayos din yung malayo ang range ng detector.... yung iba kasi maga-alarm lang kapag less than half a mile na lang yung layo ng pulis, di ka na makapag-slow down in time. Meron ding mga nice to have features like real voice messages.... Lastly, look for a radar na may magandang warranty.
