I have had Cobra radar detectors and they failed several times to warn me to slow down. After speeding tickets in 2 months I decided to ditch the Cobra and go with the Bel V955. I travel 6 states in my sales job and it has saved me many times. I would strongly recommended. Drive safe!
BEL Beltronics V955
This has been the best radar detector I have ever owned. It picks up radar from ALL angles. It also has great range from front and back.
My second Vector 955
I bought one of these for my stepson, after having had one myself for a year or so now. I guess that tells you I was happy with mine, and as far as I know, he is happy with his. In my case, this one replaced an older model BEL detector which lasted me over 10 years before it quit.
There are a couple of improved features on this 955 model I particularly like:
It has an "Autoscan" mode, that is supposedly always watching the electronic environment you operate within, and somehow adjusting its sensitivity to what it finds around you. I don't know how it works, but whatever it is doing, it appears to have fewer "false alarms" than my older BEL did, though it seems to alert when it needs to do so. This new model also has an "Automute" feature I really like. After an alert, it sounds a warning, and then after repeating it for a short period, it drops the volume to a more reasonable (i.e. less irritating) level, while it continues the warning for the duration of the alert. On my old one, I found myself having to manually mute it constantly, to keep it from driving me (and especially my wife) nuts during long alerts. All in all, it's saved me from tickets several times in vulnerable situations, and the "ergonomics" of this model are improved over the older one it replaced.
I would highly recommend this product it works great , it gives me plenty of warning when approaching speed traps and random patrols. I also purchased the smart cord with the mute button that is the only way to go , mute the false alarms and it kicks back on when it picks up another signal.
I would recommend this item..Works as discribed..I have no complaints at all..
I use it in my car ,truck and Motorcycle(with ear piece)..Hard wired on the motorcycle..
The unit is not waterproof, just be careful of that on a motorcycle.
Great Radar Detector
I purchased the Bel Bector 955 for long trips and it has worked very well with few false alarms. It is easy to use and reliable. Consumers guides rate if high for its price.
I'm not sure that this radar detector works as advertised. I used it on many long distance trips. I have passed several radar traps without any warning whatsoever from the radar detector. In fact except for the occasional false alarm, it has not given me one legit warning in 6 months of use. Even if the police in my area only use instant on radar, this detector should pick up if people in front of me when they are flashed by the police. Given that it hasn't given me a single legitimate alarm in 6 months of use, I cannot recommend this radar detector.
best in the business
This unit is hands down the best in the business !!! it blows away other units by far i have tried several ...this unit is worth its wait in gold and the price is great !!!
love my radar detector
My first bel detector lasted at least 15 years then the speaker quit. Really got my moneys worth out of that one and expect the same with this one :) great product!!
This was my first radar detector and it is amazing. Over 6 months on and it is still working perfectly. Has saved me many thousands of dollars. Have never had a point where it didn't work when needed.
