A handy tutorial mode will guide you through the extensive list of functions. If you're looking for the ultimate in radar detector technology, the BEL 980 is for you.

The BEL 980 incorporates great features like 360 degree laser protection, Safety Warning System messages, and switchable city/highway modes.
