    Valentine 1 is one of the best radar detectors which detects radar in front and in back, so you are covered for 360. It connects to its remote display using a modem cable, so I was thinking that someone could make a plugin that would intercept that data and put it up on screen

    you know...radar isn't really a threat unless its infront of you or behind you. So you really dont need 360 protection. Police radar detect speed by the doppler effect and from the side there would be no change in velocity towards the radar gun.

    yeah its a good one, the Escort 8500 X50 and Bel RX65 are just as good. I went with the Escort because it gives you the frequency (in Ghz) of the radar. That way you can learn and identify what kind of cop is trying to get you. Also, the 8500 interfaces with Escorts laser jammers.
    Laser jammers have saved my life many a time

    Those look good, but I don't see it catching a cop from behind (I usually don't look in my rear-view mirrors). What kind of laser jammer do you have, and how much was it? I hear that freeway cops now use laser almost exclusively, while the highway cops use radar. How does your laser jammer cover you if you get hit from the side?

    I have the Escort ZR3 Shifter. (http://www.radartest.com/chart.asp?articleid=8503). It retails for about $500 + install. I got it for $215 and free installation at a friends shop. It works really good, a lot of Houston cops have been using laser and the other day I noticed a cop real close to my house using one. I was going about 15 over the limit and he started laser'ing me. The ZR3 started jamming him so I slowed down to the speed limit and hit the button to stop jamming.
    As I passed him I could tell he had his eye on my car but he didnt have my speed.

    You dont have to worry about getting hit with a laser or radar from the side. It is impossible for radar or laser (aka LIDAR http://www.sunley.ca/lidar.htm) guns to detect speed from the side of a car.

    Edit: Also the ZR3 has a jammer in the back above the rear plates
    Edit2: Also my car is really dirty in this pic

    Lucky! Good thing is that I don't go on the freeways/highways, and I just drive on residential streets, so I usually go 5 above the posted limit. Now when I start going driving on the freeways/highways then I'll have to get myself something like that. Wish I had a friend like that
