Just wondering.
I still find mine very useful. Although most, if not all, of the speedtraps now use laser. However, on long trips the detector can help you avoid unmarked cars using radar or police on the other side of the road measuring your speed and allow you to slow before they can get a reading.

Now if I could just get around to putting a laser jammer in the 7 all would be great!
