Thanks for the reply. I am in the market for a radar detector and am leaning towards the Bel STi Driver. The R is probably out of my price range but I am in VA so I have to take it into consideration. I wont be here for much longer, being in the military we don't stay in one place too long. i was thinking of velcro mounting it to the dash and just removing it when I go through the gate on base. Does that seem like an option?
