Purchase any radar detector worth a damn, plus waze and you're good to go. I use Escort products personally.

FWIW, Have a friend who is a SC Constable. He often works with the "Drug Interdiction Team" that operate periodically near the intersection of Rt 20 and I95. Our local paper reports the results, which are amazing! Have seen ~20 black SUV's no markings and two helicopters! They are trained well.

He said they assume all sports cars have detectors and they are also skilled re jammer locations! No issue with detectors BUT jammers could be a significant fine. Worse is if you have anything covering your license plate, like a clear plastic cover OR in SC (and some other states) a license plate frame that covers, "Any Part of Any Letter or Number." Ticket. That is what the Law says. The justification is they are NOT going to have an Officer guess your state etc when they put your plate number in to a data bank before approaching your car. They are also not going to guess which plate cover may distort Red Light cameras so all covers are illegal.

BUT the main reason my friend tells me plate cover violations are useful to them is it gives them a good reason to stop you, give a $125 fine and search for "other stuff!" They are usually in the I95 South Bound Lane North of I20 as they really don't want drugs- can't do anything with those! They prefer drug money and have drug sniffing dogs ready to find any evidence! They also have a van equipped to do a Pee test!

All of those darked out window, unmarked black SUV's with no red lights visible until they are tuned on and seen inside the SUV, they use have been confiscated over the years! They also get a lot on money, some of which, like the cars can be confiscated!

Changed to a perimeter frame after I saw in the newspaper they were giving cars parked in Myrtle Beach $125 tickets for "unlawful" plate frames/covers!

Could be, but without further information I don't know what to make of the statement.

Is a V1 "similar" to a Passport 9500CI remote? The V1 is mounted up beside my RVM; the Passport's remote detector head is down in the "mouth" in front of the radiator, out of sight to the casual glance. The readouts are in the ashtray pocket of my C6.

As to the Blend mount: popular, but I don't like it at all because I have trouble enough seeing under my RVM when in a right turn, especially a climbing right curve. I'm 6' tall and even with my seat set as low as it will go (without bottoming out) I have to duck my head to see under it in those circumstances.

The Pro M is probably the best there is out there for stopping BSM falses.

R3 mounted to the rearview mirror (Blendmount) and Waze.

Nothing is infallible, but I believe it's a pretty good combination.
