Yup, you are correct here. The best radar detectors I've used have been the K40's with the front/rear mount sensors. The display goes in your gauge cluster, so cops generally don't notice it (in case its illegal in your area, like it is here). Plus, this gives you much better directional pinpointing of where the radar/laser source is at, in front, in rear, left, or right...Actually the best redars out arent the little box design. The best ones have 2 sensors that mount into your front grill and somewhere on the rear. Then the Lcd is mounted in your rearview mirror. They cost $1000+. They are better because they are on the outside of the car and don't have to read through glass.
Yup, only been pulled over 3 times myself. Once for a b.s. reason, cop was a jerk. Second time i was actually speeding, being dumb and showing off (GF), and the third time i wasn't speeding. Honest to god, but i got a ticket anyway. Only time pulled over in coug, i think he just saw my car and was like "ohhhhhh ahhhh, that's purdy" and gave me a ticket, a**. I mean, who speeds through town!?after 3 tickets, my eyes never stop scanning oncoming vehicles for police lights on top of their roof or to see if their headlights resemble police cars. im a human radar machine, you have to pay attention to whats going on around you....constantly check rear view mirrow and on coming traffic....side roads - always look down them ....tips.
