Yes.
Got it from US in 1997, brought it back home. It was accurate when policed used their laser gun instead of taking picture of the car.
Its illegal to use it in malaysia.
I cannot say that I recommend this device. Not too sure. Maybe mine old model.

OOh.. oK..
I think I need to get one for my own self but need more feedback from others. So far, I never see any place in Malaysia selling this but when I was in China, I came to know that they are selling it but only for local use.

Thank you for the feedback.

it's for detecting polis's speed trap la

it got 3 type:
1) it will received the transmit signal when polis pointing the speed trap device to your car and make that signal dissappear, therefore, polis won't know u run at how fast but he will know u'r using the radar detector and he will put u in jail if he catch u
2) it will do nothing to the transmit signal from polis speed trap device but it will have a beep alarm sound to tell u got polis's speed trap, normally this type is the cheapest and polis won't know u use this
3) it almost same like type 1, but it will send a fake signal to the polis speed trap device, let say u run at 200km/j, and u set 100km/j in ur radar detector, polis speed trap device will only shown 100km/j...this is the most expensive...but also got risk polis may know u r using it

I did study in this a few years ago and plan to ask friend from US to buy for me, that's why I know it...but I heard got people kena tangkap and put in jail and my friend afraid to buy for me..
and yes, it's illegal in Malaysia

radar detectors and radar jammers are illegal. Jammers will require you to install the jamming device around the car, normally at the license plate. however, its quite visible during roadblock so, its still a question on whether you will be caught red handed. also you will need to clean the transmitter for the jammer frequently to ensure effectiveness of the device. alternatively if you want a safer device, go for gps speed trap poi. cause its a map marked location of potential speed trap. accuracy is an issue, well at least you will know.

It works but you have to get one that can detect laser coz that's what our police use not radar anymore.

But be warned that once caught it is a RM1000 reward from Kastam on the spot for the cop who got you and you'll get escorted off the highway until the police station, not a simple ticket procedure and off you go. So the police are very much on the lookout for people who use it

If you still intend to use the one the most well known brand is Escort. But it's not cheap, here in aussie the newer models are selling about 500+ AUD which is about 1000+ RM.

Yup... probably it's too expensive for those who pay lesser amount for the speed tickets.... but if you are a traffic violator...then it's consider cheap...biggrin.gif
Anyway, please do share more on the place to get this item... thank you.

they have vg-2 detection of some sort....i was stopped at a road block in sungkai eventhough i was not speeding at that time and the police officer said, "encik kita kena ambil encik punya detector." Problem is, my detector was already removed b4 slowing down for the road block and already hidden....so he gave me 2 choices, rampas or pergi balai....and i asked him how he know i have, he said they can detect u if u have one.... shocking.gif

i got it quite cheap last time, about 70USD...so nvm, i still have a spare one rite now which im more careful with

btw, its not really reliable if they shoot ur plate from behind....coz the detector is mounted facing the front so it would be too late once it detect the camera signal

Malaysia if i am not mistaken has already phased out radar but is instead using Laser Detection, a radar detector won't detect a Laser Speed trap. Problem with laser is the beam is very narrow, which sometimes makes it difficult to detect.

Thats right, Malaysia is using the laser system. It is very difficult to detect unless they are aiming u from the front and ur angle is accurate with the lasers line of sight.

Radar last time they use the old Gatso system at Karak highway.....now no more....the radar detector somemore always get interference from telecom towers....

Actually my friend told me that the express buses uses some system through handphone PTT which can share information on speed trap location....but dunno have to pay the tonto how much to be included in the group

Beside, rcracer have you ever use the detector before?


Added on December 31, 2007, 3:29 pmJeremy..
so it's not safe at all if we use the detector? Is your radar detector come with VG-2 built in?

Most of the time, they will aim the speed gun towards you and not from the back.

There are alot of radar detectors in the market. Cheap ones sold in the market usually aren't reliable. I've personaly used three diff brands and of course, Valentine One is always the best. It picks up the signal alot faster than the others.

As for laser....it's really a hit or miss. There's noway you can run from it. Pray hard that when the police aims at your car, the angle he aimed at is miscued and your detector picked it up first. I'm escaped from laser a few times but if they really have a good aim at your car....Kinda pointless if the detector is making noise either. smile.gif

edit: I used them ALOT...and I mean.....ALOT. smile.gif depended on them last time due to nature of work.

Road angel is GPS based system couple with laser sensors u install at the front of the car....the GPS system is basically useless cos the map points are mostly for UK roads and their permanent GATSO camera's...the laser system is quite cool but kinda hard to get...try searching for road angel 1 & 2 and u'll get the idea

Anyway, road angel do offer to sell online but I dont trust the webpage yet...

Most of the time, they will aim the speed gun towards you and not from the back.

There are alot of radar detectors in the market. Cheap ones sold in the market usually aren't reliable. I've personaly used three diff brands and of course, Valentine One is always the best. It picks up the signal alot faster than the others.

As for laser....it's really a hit or miss. There's noway you can run from it. Pray hard that when the police aims at your car, the angle he aimed at is miscued and your detector picked it up first. I'm escaped from laser a few times but if they really have a good aim at your car....Kinda pointless if the detector is making noise either. smile.gif

edit: I used them ALOT...and I mean.....ALOT. smile.gif depended on them last time due to nature of work.
*
My opinion of the V1 is that is is a rather over hyped detector - Their main call to fame is their directional indicators where it can tell you where the LEO and his/her equipment is. forward, back or the sides. And as they have a patent for their "direction sense technology", they're the only company who can use it.

IMHO, the Escort Passport 8500 X50 is a far superior detector; however, if you're already looking at either detectors, i'm sure money isn't object (the 8500 is a fair bit cheaper, though) and you would have already done your reading.

Personally for me, given my current allowance for such a device, my Cobra XRS-9700 does the job just fine. Sure, it ain't the top of the line, but in terms of K/Ka performance (and in one incident, PRO Laser III), it's helped me steer clear of quite a few moving violations (aka saman) in the US...

I haven't gotten a chance to try it on Malaysian roads, but IMHO almost all decent radar detectors are VG-2 immune (and marketed as such). I'd be more worried about Spectre II/III detection, which could probably be what Msian LEOs are using - but then again, i'm just speculating about choice of technology.

My 9700 is up for grabs though, I don't plan on risking it through Malaysian customs again...

Got it from China... so far, the detector is very sensitive to all devices such as auto doors, radio frequency on truck (but dont know whether they use radar detector too which causing my detector turn on when ever get close to them)
Anyway, still hunting for those officer that use laser beam to get their "victim" ..... see how far I can get the laser before it see me.

not necessarily. when have you ever seen a cop using a laser from behind? the only chance of that happening and the laser hitting the diffusers would be if the cop was stationary, and waited for cars to PASS him before shooting. if it was *in* the car, it would give false readings.

the Bel STI Driver is in a whole different class then Valentine 1. AND... you forgot that the Valentine IS detectable by Spectre Radar Detector Detectors. Wanna go to jail? I think not laugh.gif

Bel STI Driver is the ONLY RD that is 100% stealth proven, no RDD's in the world can detect the STI's presence.

You're also forgetting that the STI has a diffuser built into the unit for the back, and also a MUCH farther range then the V. V is old news la, used to be good, not anymore.

Offer still on, MYR1700 nego. Will be listing on trading area soon.

hey.... the radar detector works perfectly. Managed to detect the L-beam at Rawang speed trap..but distance about like 700m.
I was at the back of a car but when I try to over take the car in front, then only the speed trap detected a signal. I think I'll check out to see whether they get me on the camera or not.. FYI, I tried to reduce the speed once it detector L-beam in front. huhu

Guys... i already check.... I m still clean.. probably the car in front of me blocking the ray... causing shorter distance of detection.

FYI.. I own a whistler unit... Nice to have one ... but nowaday..it seems like very less speed trap toward nothern/ southern region since road building or extension.

I would recommend you guys to look at this. It has a detailed explanation.


http://www.007radardetectors.com/tests.htm


One thing i would like to bring to your attention, it quote it from the article in the web:

" We no longer show test results for laser as we believe there is no radar/laser detector on the market that will give you adequate warning time against police laser. "

hmm... hye. i want to ask something about the radar detector/frquency detector... mine is Japan detector got it frm halfcut and my friend said that the frequency is diffrent compare to malaysia police so its not working in Malaysia... i juz use it for fun because da device hav a japanese voice when i start the engine... i dint use it for escape from police or what, and i dont even put it on my dashboard, what happen if the police find out that i hav a device but i dont put it on the dash board? would i get jail?

- if the device not facing da windscreen, police can detect da detector or not? would i get caught if i hav da device but dont use it, juz for accessories (put it under my speedo meter).

It's illegal to even own the device irrespective whether you use or not.

The device must be mounted on the windscreen to detect a speed trap

Malaysia has phased out radar speed traps many years ago and replaced with laser detectors. You need a detector that can detect laser speed traps, old radar ones are useless.

A radar detector can usually detect a wideband of speed trap frequencies, K-band bla bla bla, but not laser.

but while speeding in highway, this things very useful as it can detect the speedtrap.

i own a Whistler DE-1733 Radar/laser Detector (http://www.buyradardetectors.com/products/whistler/whistler-de-1733.aspx) which i bought it quite cheap from US ebay, so far i used it in PLUS highway and so far so good here (touch wood!), i think i have avoided a few summon. Anyone use the similar model that can share with me your experience here ?

It's true that no device can escape the police laser. I was using Radar/laser detector for awhile because I used to deliver Chinses food in the US and I always fly around the housing areas. I would tell you that once the police points the laser gun at you...almost 90% you're screwed.....smile.gif

Hey guys,

I'm new to this site, but I've been reading up on radar detectors, etc. so I would like to share my views. To sum it up:

1) Members of PDRM use LASER speed traps/guns, not RADAR speed traps/guns anymore (at least I doubt they do around the LDP/Penchala Link area).
2) Installing a detector requires you to attach it to the windscreen, making it visible to practically ANYONE (police and fellow driving-enthusiasts who will tail you at high speeds hoping that your detector can help them to avoid a fine).
3) Being caught with a ANY detector, lands you a serious fine and possibly jail time.
4) Signing up to KLRoadBlock@Twitter on your smart phone is probably the most "affordable" method: avoid getting fined for speeding AND for possession of a detector AND for not purchasing and installing a detector in the first case. It may not be as "effective" as an actual detector, but in general, it is pretty decent. Most of the common roadblock areas (LDP, Penchala Link, Mont Kiara-below the bridge, etc.) are recognized by that group and they will spam the chat should PDRM decide to "cari makan".

Obviously if info number 3) weren't true, we'd all have detectors installed. Since I can still afford the speeding tickets, paying for it legibly or otherwise, I'd stick with that option. I can't afford to face jail time, and I believe a majority of the viewers wouldn't too. Detectors can only "prolong" your time until you, inevitably, get caught. Moral of the story: Follow the law and quench your thirst for speed at the SIC during open track day events. I can understand the need to put your foot down, I have that issue as well, but please do so in a responsible manner.

Thank you for your time.

What u need is a radar jammer... that way cops won't know how fast u were speeding but a good cop will know u are using it and will radio his colleague to set up road block ahead.

Aiya... just follow the rules and don't speed la. If u want to speed, ensure it is a traffic free road or watch out for double flashes from on-coming cars. Or better still, follow the Express Bus (I always do this when going back home town).

I have a Valentine One, purchased from USA. The Laser detection is pretty good. Malaysia uses Laser band, and when the L word flashes and beeps, I'm pretty sure the police is around already. I'd usually slow down immediately. Most of the time, officials would take 3-4 shots of laser before getting accurate reading, and Valentine One will show you they're aiming, and the best thing is, it tells you where the direction is. 99% of the time when L lights up, I'll see a police ... I'm guilty of speeding 180-220kmph on North-South Expressway, but so far, I've only got 1 saman in 3 years, caught be 180kmph. I've probably escaped at least 5-8 summons. If you ask me, I'd recommend Valentine One. It is way better than Escort, because it detects everything, and most importantly, it tells you where the direction is. Go read about it. smile.gif Just my 2 cents. I've tried Escorts I purchased from BestBuy, and in the end, I returned them for refunds.

Radar/Laser jammers are illegal in the USA, that's why I didn't bother with it. Valentine One comes built in with anti-radar-detector-detectors. In a way, I do trust that the only way official could catch me is if they see the physical detector I hang on the windshield, and I only install them when I'm on highways, and also my car is pretty much tinted 80-90% darkness.
