As another poster mentioned, be sure to check out the Passport 9500ix (is a windshield mount detector, made by the same company who make the Beltronics--also good detectors with slighly fewer features). Numerous reviews by automotive publications in the US bill it as the best/most sentitive radar detector with the highest standoff range and is very effective at eliminating false positives and has neat features such GPS learning, red-light camera warning, and downloadable camera databases (don't know if there are red light databases outside the US however). Expensive but is worth the money... I live in California next to one of the most heavily patrolled highways in the state that is patrolled by the CHP with very elaborate speed traps set up and this radar detector has paid for itself within a few months.
