Yes
VG-2 Immunity
The VG-2 detects radar detectors. Radar detectors with VG-2 immunity will be immune to the VG-2 radar and alert the driver when they are under such surveillance.
Yes
Pop Alert
Some radar guns operate in a POP mode so they can get a speed reading of a target vehicle extremely fast, resulting in most radar detectors not being able to consistently signal an alert. There are very few radar guns in service in the U.S. capable of POP mode operation. If your radar detector is Pop Alert capable, you may notice an increase in Ka-band false alerts when POP mode radar detection is switched on.
Yes

This radar detector has from DC to Colorado and never let me down . The real-world difference between it and the SOLO were so miniscule that it was the best choice due to cost. Great product from BEL.

This radar detector operates flawlessly. It picks up a signal way before the threat is in visible range. The POP feature is a bonus. For the price you can't get a better radar detector.

Beltroniics Radar Detector 995

October 31, 2012

Bought this 6 months ago, after getting a speeding ticket - first ticket in 20 years. This thing works great. Very easy to set up - installed in back of my rear view mirror. I leave it on autoscan. You do get some false reports, however on Staten Island NY it appears that the police only use KA band and laser, so it is easy to determine when it is police radar sending the signal. The range is fantastic, plenty of time to slow down when you hear the radar warning. Also sensitive to laser, but of course less time to slow down. I'm completely satisfied with the detector, and will not drive without it. Excellent balance of effectiveness and value. Would highly recommend it to a friend.

Not sure it's operating properly

June 23, 2012

I purchased this radar detector to update my cobra. After reading the reviews, I was excited about the range it claims to have. It seems that the range is about 75-100 yards before it goes crazy, no ascending alarm (rarely anyhow). I believe I may send it in for the Beltronix company to look at it. Looks cool, like the features if they work, has many functions.
Only disappointment is range.

Bel Vector 995

January 3, 2011

There is no consumer reports evaluation of radar detectors- but Radar Roy is the expert I read before buying my Bel Vect 995. It is the best radar/laser detector I have owned. Never misses- the only problem is if u r in the middle of nowhere it will let u know when there is radar is being used but by the time u slow down ur busted. But all radar detectors have the same limitation- all perform better in traffic. But the Bel vect 995 is the finest detector I've owned & I've owned 7 or 8.

It works great on all kinds of radar. As I got to know it better i realized all the times it went off i could find the radar 90% of the time by looking for it. Laser radar is a problem due to its nature, if it goes off the guns already on you by the time you can react. But nobody can do anything about that.

Well I bought this Vector 995 6 months ago and I'd have to say I'm impressed, it works like a charm, it has outstanding range picks it up before you see it, but I do notice it picks up my work, and CVS, Walgreens, but I'd expect that, every other Radar Detecter i'v personally owned did the same thing, other than that I love it! I went on a 2,500 Mile trip from FL to Ohio and back and it saved me a numerous amount of times, I highly recommend this Radar!

October 9, 2009

This radar detector has saved me from numerous tickets. I did get one ticket from from a cop using laser, and my detector never went off so the laser detector part is lacking. On the highway you will get some notice but not much. I noticed that i would get one alert bar about 5 seconds before i see the cop, then it goes to full alert. My advice is as soon as you hear it, step on the brakes especially on the highway. Another tip, if you get a one bar alert for a prolonged period, chances are that a cop is either driving behind or in front of you with radar on, so be careful. Overall, once you get used to it capabilities, is is very useful.

The Vector 995 has an excellent range and detection. The Lazar detector works but is of little use unless your in traffic. The repayment on any tickets that you might receive is a joke. If you are buying it for that reason forget it! Overall a good investment for the price.

Beltronics Vector 995

December 30, 2011

I bought this radar detector for about 140 or 160 dollars and it has proved to be well worth it. I am typing this from my iPhone so I won't go into great deal about radar detectors in general, which if you have done your research you know only alert you of cops if their radar is on -and that they can wait to the last second to turn on. Regardless for the price this radar detector functions extremely well in it's price range. I live in western New York, which is heavily policed, and this radar detector usually gives me ample notice prior to encountering cops. It alerts me most of the time about 5-10 seconds prior to encountering cops the majority of the time... I have been alerted with about 1-2 seconds warning coming around corners which for radar detectors are more difficult to pick up. Because of this, purchasing a radar detector does not mean you can spew with invincibility. Rather I did research and bought this to add to my car since if you are like myself and drive frequently, sometimes you tend to drive above the speed limit at times even when you know not to. This radar detector serves as another means to help protect and alert you. A nice feature of this radar detector is the mute button, which you can use to mute false alarms such as supermarket doors -which appear as X band (I had heard or read that if you are in the united states you should turn off x band which is worthless, but I still haven't done that yet after six months) stoplights often alert my radar detector, but I quickly mute them. This radar detector shines most on back roads and the highway. Excellent value considering cost of a ticket. And to help alert you for those times when you are driving and happen to forgot or not know the speed limit. Happens to everybody.

Great mid-priced detector

December 13, 2010

I've had the 955 for 3 yrs - still works great, and just bought one as a gift for my dad. It is worth its weight in traffic tickets. I use it in and around Houston and on long road trips. The tone + voice alarm telling you what type of radar or laser it has detected is a nice feature. Filtering of falsies is good in the city and great on the highway. Those false signals that do register (mostly x-band) are location consistent. Great long range reception of K band on the highways. It will detect Laser , but since laser is so focused and intermittent, you have to react quickly when it picks it up. Thats probably why Bell made laser the loudest of the alarms and voice says "LASER ALERT." I'm completely satisfied with this detector for the price.

Great detector, behaves like it's more expensive cousins

June 8, 2009

This is a great detector. It behaves like it's more expensive cousins, but the performance to cost ratio is better. Have it mounted off the visor, hard wired to the fuse box. Good alerts, very good accuracy. Love have the POP feature, because that is what all the locals now use in town speed traps (Northern NJ). Keep this one in line, very good product, will save you some tickets.

June 8, 2011

This has been a great unit. I have owned it for almost 3 years and it is trouble free. The range is unbelievable to th point that a few minutes go by before you even see the cop car and there are no false alarms as long as you set it up right. I am so impressed with it that I bought a second one 6 months ago for my son.
