This radar detector is average at best. I ran it side by side against an Escort X50. The Escort was definitely the better machine. I would find police officers running radar in school zones to check the range on this unit. Half a mile at best, while the Escort was picking up KA band over a mile away. The only truth I found on the claims from their website was the low false alarm rates. I believe it does not have as many false alarms because it is lacking in sensativity. The unit and cord are very cheap. The windshield mount was firm but you are not able to remove it easily without taking the whole unit down off the windshield. Motor trend reviewed this brand of detector and I found the review after I purchased it. This brand rated the worst of all of them. I sold mine today on xxxxxx. Buying the Escort Monday. Keep shopping and I hope this helps.
