POP radar, Ka band, Laser. The list of funny-sounding technologies designed to nab speeders keeps growing. Fortunately, Beltronics has produced an effective, compact, and user-friendly radar detector. It's made for folks who don't want to fuss with the details, but who do want first-class protection from high-tech speed traps. By offering K- X- Ka- and even Ku-band protection -- plus protection from POP and laser detection -- the Vector 995 covers all the bases.

Mounting the 995 in a vehicle couldn't be easier. A small suction cup bracket slides into the unit's release mechanism and easily attaches to the windshield with light pressure. The unit is housed in a sturdy plastic case that's low profile and compact -- in fact, it's a good bit sleeker and smaller than the box-shaped 8500. The rear of the unit is dominated by a receiver window. There's also an additional laser detector window that faces the passenger compartment, which designed to detect laser signals emanating from behind the vehicle. Extra goodies include attachable blue, yellow and red faceplates that let you dress up the 995 to suit your style, as well as a softcase.
Another great attribute of the 995 is its easy control layout. Four buttons on the top of the unit control power, city...
