This is so new in being on the market there are almost zero postings anywhere on the installing process, and use. It seems to incorporate some of the features the DESMO device offers, outside temperature, battery charging. Whistler also has a wireless helmet alert, so one can keep their eyes on the road.

I have an escort 8500 I use in my car, and it has kept me ticket-less for more than 5 years. That 5 year streak ended last week.

Supposedly it is one of the first detectors that is for motorcycles exclusively.

From everything I've read, they are worthless. Check epinions and amazon.com — extremely negative reviews.

The switch

The best money can buy don't do any good when the cop has the trigger/switch off untill you get in his range to flip it on!! Here in Michigan most State and County use the switch and then you have the laser!

I've had Escort back in the day before Laser and yes they worked great but today the best money can buy won't save you............imo

I do most of my speeding at the Track and don't get any tickets.:D

Getting "old" helps. Every time I get stopped I just take off my helmet and the cop sees a "mature" rider. They say things like, "I can see you're not the usual knucklehead. Just take it easy."

You would be better off with a jammer than a detector.
To clarify this, a laser jammer will work well with lasers. He will still need a radar detector for radar as there is no jammer (that works) available for radar.
