The only one that I'm aware of that goes in ur front grill is the detector that blocks the radar signal from the radar gun.

I think Escort makes the ones with the remote sensors, but they cost big $$$$, like $700 or more.

Yup, I was right the Escort SR7. It has weather proof sensors that mount on the front and rear of the car. It costs $800, wow!!!

yes they are..also if the cop thinks that you have one (say if your going 80mph and it reads 45mph) he can point the lazer as your driving away..the scrambler only works when your driving towards the cop.


Anyway...the Valentine one rocks!

Valentine one ALL THE WAY. Awesome lil' radar detector. Volume knob with mute function. Detects EVERYTHING. I've gotten readings when the cop was over half a mile ahead of me. LOTSA warning time for you to slow down (especially on the highway or interstate)
