STi-R Plus like the Redline, 9500ci and STi-Driver are all Spectre immune.

Applied Concepts has even admitted there will be no advances in the Spectre as the emissions from these detectors is below the background level existing in the atmosphere.

Any of these are perfect for VA!!!

I found this one interesting. A bunch of geeks testing a K40 laser jammer

We prefer the term enthusiasts.

That is exactly what I have seen every time I shot one of the K40 units with lidar, basically nothing. Keep that $2500 to pay the speeding tickets, or but a decent defense system.

Radar : Valentine Research, Escort or Beltronics

Lidar: Laser Interceptor or Blinder

I've been using detectors for almost 30 years. I've most recently owned the Valentine, 9500ix, K40 360, and the 9500ci. I just removed the K40 from my car and replaced it with the CI. The only time the K40 went off was when I was within line of sight of the cop. No, he wasn't popping his gun. I've traveled that corridor for over 20 years...they don't work that way. The second I got the CI, life was good again.
K40's customer service is extraordinarily responsive, but that can't make up for a bad product.

I have had an escort 9500i for 4 years and it has been extraordinarily reliable and consistent. It offers great detection at some very impressive distances when under the right circumstances. It has saved my insurance and therefore my wallet! Which means more MODS
