in all honesty it'd be best not to speed :p only takes one cop with his radar off to notice you fly past and thats it.

look up beltronics, also apparently the cops where plotting to bring in the uk spec radars but as it stands each country uses one band or another, ask at a local audiocom.

also note they're looking to ban them so i dont know what the go is there.

All overseas detectors work fine here in Aus.

Newer one's can be selected to turn off certain frequencies. For example you can shut off X band so you don't have to deal with it going off everytime you go past automatic doors and the like.

If you're on the East coast then all detectors are detectable by Stalcar radar detector detectors and there are dedicated cops who solely drive around to pick up detector users.

VG2 immunity does not stop you from being detected by the Stalcar!

True dat - you'll get picked up by a detector detector, and that can cost big $$ My brother had his confiscated and a $1000 fine in NSW, and that was 10years ago. Also, they are near useless on LIDAR (the long range of LIDAR and the fact there is virtually no scatter) So by the time you detect LIDAR the cop already has your speed. Also, with fixed cameras, the signal is quite weak, so again, you'll have been pinged before you detect it. They are illegal in all states except WA iirc.

Just don't speed is the CHEAPEST and best option available on the market.

The whole Speeding Kills campaign with the TAC is true with what they say. I know this for a fact from watching comparisons on a Defence Driving Course. Plus less speeding = less fuel consumption.. everyones a winner :D
