Very good detector...
Posted by: Rakoon from: Houston, TX on
I went back and forth between the Passport 9500ix and the Betronics v10 (which seems to be the same specs as Beltronics 995)
and I could not justify spending the $249 more to go with a gps enabled radar detector. But this one (basically made by Passport) is
compatible with the passport Shifter ZR4 for laser jamming and that was high on my upgrade list in a detector.
So as I plan my upgrade path for this detector I have been using it with the auto scan settings set to scan all bands while I learn my area.. the typical who uses what. So for that reason I left the X band on.
While I was driving along I10 downtown Houston I picked up a signal (Xa) and didn't see any police scanning radar. Well I decided to verify I was driving the speed limit and I approached a hill and there he was …. Shooting radar.
His system was the installed type in his car and not the radar gun.
So I was pleased to see the performance of this detector and will move forward with the laser jamming system soon.
the distance was close to 1 mile (up hill side) from when the radar went off which again I found to be great since he was on the downhill side of the hill
So in my opinion this was a huge bang for the buck.
Just my opinion

This is a great radar detector that is fast and has few if any false alarms. Couple that with the smart phone app Escort Live and you have great weapon against LEO's raiding your wallet for your hard earned $$$. My only complaint is the mounting bracket. For as long as Escort and Beltronics have been building radar detectors you would think one of their engineers would finally admit that their mounting bracket is a piece of dung. On our first 250 mile trip the V-10 pinpointed 3 separate radar traps that I would have never seen. Additionally, the Escort Live iPhone app gave us updates on two troopers who were working the interstate ahead of us... The most useful iPhone app I have purchased in years!!! Get the larger mounting device.. extra bucks but worth it!!

Good Range, Less False Alerts.
Posted by: Lynx217 from: Aurora, Co on
Had the V6 and took it back because the false alarms drove me nuts. I have the V10 in Autoscan mode with X Band turned off. What a difference. The Range seems to be a lot better. The shape of the rear lens is in a radius, I assume to improve off axis performance. So far, so good. Beltronics is owned by Escort and manufactured in the same Escort factory. Had a Escort 8500 X50 a long time ago and loved it.

My first radar detector.
Posted by: NJCellsaver from: Atlantic City, NJ on
This radar detector for the money is great. It has paid for itself in the first 2 weeks. I am in the medical field and have to respond to emergencies in the operating room. It is mostly highway driving and I usually, if conditions permit, tend to go over the speed limit. Thank you Beltronics.
So far I purchased one for my son and one relative purchased one for his wife and one for himself.

Nice radar detector

For the sale price I paid for this radar was a steal. Does exactly what it's supposed to. Seems to work a good distance away too.

This detector is the best in its class for the money. At the $250 price range there is not a better one. Has the same sensor used in the higher end detectors like the pro300 for hundreds of dollars less. The range on this detector is more than anyone really needs and by paying more money on a higher end detector is just a waiste because u are paying for features you really don't need. Hands down as a former Valentine owner this detector gets the job done plus some.

Product is very user friendly and extremely accurate. It has by far out done my expectations. The only negative factor is that it is not cordless.

Its not a bad radar once the radar syncs with your area.
