Summer Road Trip

Getting Ready for the Leavenworth Drive in Washington June 14th and then I think I might cruise down for Parade. Anybody know of any good sights to see while down there? I have not been to cali since i was little. Also looking for a good radar / laser detector, driving cruise control right on the speed limit is a little boring

anybody else heading down for those events?


Also if any of you use Facebook would you mind going to the link and clicking vote for my fiancee and myself ( the two beside the boxster )

Also here is a few pics I thought you might enjoy from our most recent coffee get together

Sounds like a great trip, I'm jealous! I've been using the Escort 8500 for the past couple of years with good results, no tickets so far knock on wood! I also have the smart chord which hooks up to either an iPhone or android phone via Bluetooth, which uses a social networking type of thing, allowing you and others to report police locations. I wired mine so that the detector is mounted to the visor and I use my iPad mini as the display. The whole thing works very well IMO.

The Escort smart chord cigarette plug has an extra USB port on it for charging whatever.

I use the Bel 300 and it works well on the dash next to the security Led flasher.

Its really a question of how much you want to pay.

Beltronics vs. Escort - The Best Stealth & Laser Radar Detectors - Installation Videos

It might be nice to have the GPS equiped units that have the extra stoplight camera and speed trap locations, but I have not found them necessary.

I know the detector has paid for itself many times over in the last 2 years so I would not hesitate to pay even more for what you feel you need.
