Radar dectectors

hello every one i want to buy a radar detector and im worried about because i all ready own a radar detector and some bands it does not pick up till its to late like i got pulled over and the cop said " that really helped you didnt it" is there any way to hide it from the eyes of the cop even thought its legal. i want to hide it because the cop might not goe is easy on you if he sees it. my radar has a vg-2 dectector detector so it was not like he knew b4 he pulled me over

just unhook it and throw it under your seat or have it another your seat and unplug it really quick when they pull you over or something of the sort

Radar detectors suck. It's only picking up the radar if the cop is using their radar against you or someone near you, and if they're using it against you, you're not gonna have any time to slow down because you can't slow down faster than infrared light travels. If its someone near you, you probably won't get pulled over anyways because you'll see the cop or the person will get pulled over.

There might be some advanced systems out there but I doubt it.

As has been said already, radar sensors do suck. However, if you have doubts that they don't really work aswell as they should, don't rely on them!.....

I don't know what it's like over there, but here, you're clocked when you're as far as 1/4 mile away, if on a straight road. That in mind, you will probably be clocked before you see the Cop.

Well in Norway, they also have a city called "Hell." Postcards say "Welcome to Hell", and the road that leads to "Hell" is called the "Highway to Hell." lol...It's all true too lol.
