Looks good. Keep a couple of things in mind:
--If the instant-on radar is clicked on you, your speed is recorded before you have time to get the alarm and slow down. The detector works best picking up radar scatter from vehicles far enough away that you're out of the range of the officer's radar receiver.
--Very little chance any detector of any brand can pick up laser before you're nailed. It has no scatter.
--Some business door openers and security systems use the same frequency so the detector is picking up many of these. It can't tell the difference between the door opener on the donut shop and the squad car with radar and officer munching a donut in front of the shop.
--You can still get nabbed by ordinary speed check from a following patrol car, and in some places by plane.
--Do you have a quick-release on the detector to hide it if you are pulled over? LEOs aren't likely to give a break to an obvious scofflaw.
You probably know all this, but others might not. I sometimes hook up my Valentine, but I don't count on any detector.
