    yes my mamu jee had it in the usa. it would go like beep.. beep.. beep.. when a police car came closer it would go beep beep beep beeeeeeeeeeeeep and you would see the police car close. This gadget is ok.

    Then there was a second gadget available that actually stopped the cop from getting your speed by absorbing the laser beam that came from the cops speed gun. thats banned.

    Cant get any of them in pakistan though.
    HID or no HID?

    My cousin was on study trip to Canada in past 2 or 3 years.He also told me this that there is a device which blocks the radiation by distructive interference n thus they cant detect the speed of ur car.

    lol your cousin is wrong. There is no such device which can block the radiation or laser. Radar detector detects the radar or laser from far away so you can slow down but cops know that too,thats why they hide behind the bridges so most of the time radar detector couldn't detect it and you are busted

    those radar detectors from USA and Canada will not work in KSA because they are using a different system of European origin.

    Any such thing is strictly prohibited here in Oman at least, If you are found to be fiddling, your licence confiscated, jail punishment followed by deportation.
    And above all the insult to you and to your contrymates.
    I respect the country's laws, because they are made for your safety.
    @wadia1, think again dude.
    Peace.

    Well,
    Ofcourse the rules are made for safety, but the thirst for speed never ends, so, speeding is an addiction. Even I dont have a radar detector right now, but I am cruising upto 160-180 most of the time. Anyways, I my self dont suggest people to use such devices.
    Keep Speeding all the time, but with care!

    my chacha has one over here-

    but he got his from germany so umm this was kind of a useless reply.

    but no it's not available from pakistan. We JUST got radar guns that work in the nights so we're a long way from detectors.

    dont try to emulate the Saudis because one they are careless two its their country so they wont be deported anywhere. For you, the choice of deportation will be back to Pakistan which I hope no sane person wants.

    Guys, This is from experience. About 3 yrs ago I had a run in with an old friend who was about to order a radar detector from the States. It was meant to be the best detector around and convinced me to buy one along with himself as we would get a discount. At the time the detector cost me 400 Pounds nearly 150 pounds cheaper than the market price. It was called the 'Valentine One'. I used this thing from the day it arrived in the post to the day I got stopped by the Police for speeding at 85 MPH on the Motorway. The thing is the radar did beeep like mad when it detected the Police radar but by the time I hit the brakes they had my speed. The police are quite wise to these detectors and usually point the camera downwards until they visually spot a car they think is overspeeding and only point it for that fraction of a second. They also try and conceal themselves. The officer who stopped me was waiting at a spot which I drive past every day but I would never have thought he could park there. The detector is a good thing for stationary cameras but these mobile cameras can pop up anywhere. Plus I think it gives you a false sense of security.

    I ended up with three points on my licence. I havent used it since selling my previous motor. If anyone wants it, place a bid and Ill try and send it by courier.
