    okay so lately I've been doing a lot of highway miles and I'm sick of doing the speed limit hoping I don't see a Georgia State Patrol.
    Well... I just got me a $100 best buy gift card, so I figured i'd ask you guys for your advice, what type/brand of radar detector should I buy for $100?

    passport escort series. I got a 7500 about 6 years ago, still going strong. the 8500 and 9500s are great from what I hear, I have had nothing but good luck with mine. a little more than $100 though. Cobras are good for the price, I got my dad an $80 one from frys and it works pretty well.

    I dont speed too much though, maybe 10 over at the most while passing someone on the freeway, I just like to know where they are, theyll get us big trucks and contractors for ANYTHING hoping to find something illegally modded, or an unsecured load, so if I slow to the exact speed I dont give them any reason to pull me over. I dont have anything illegal I just dont want the headache.

    My brother has one for his gt, its a cobra but i think it was more around the 200 dollar range. But seems to work good. Im sure you know this, but just remember they only work if there radar is on. So you still got to watch out.
