I had a Valentine 1 when I lived in the US. Saved me several times. The display showed the number of bogeys (Valentine’s phrase). One time it showed 2, and sure enough there were 2 Police cars with the second one hiding over the brow of a hill.

Having said all this I think Waze is your best solution

I used a V1 as well and might also have had jammers behind the grille of my rs4 in NZ 😂 Saved me many time. I use Waze now

Radar is pretty defunct with lazar technology leading the way. For the last two decades I have owned almost every gadget possible including 'Blue Eye'. My recommendation would be Waze. Blue eye is good for covert vehicles but that will change when the police go across to 5G circa 2020. Waze has saved me a few times and best of all its freeeeeeeeeee Thumb

Agreed regarding the comments about radar becoming defunct.
I had a Bel Euro550, which was rated one of the best back in the day & designed specifically for the UK market due to the frequencies used there.

That combined with a lazer "garage door opener / Parking detector" felt invincible for a while. Turns out that it doesn't help over a measured distance.

These days, I just use my eyes & try to take it easy for the most part...
