Smile Radar detector

I'm sure somewhere this has been talked about already but finding it might take awhile so I thought I would just asked.

What is the best radar detector for the Evora?

First off, it needs to work or what's the point.
Next it needs to be installed out of site, if you do get stopped for speeding and the nice officer see the radar detector it's a sure ticket.

What have others already done? What do you think is the best?

Thank you.

radar choice

I like the Escort 9500ix with the GPS speed readout (helps if the speedometer is inaccurate). Also a built-in database of all know cameras and speed traps. Records and stores false alarms. Sunvisor mount - cannot use the windshield suction cup since the windows were tinted - can be quickly stowed on floor - glove compartment too small. If radar/laser is on, you know it before you see the LEO, otherwise you may be nailed. Cruise control is nice.

Agree, I got the lesser one without GPS and wish I'd shelled out the $200 more to avoid regular bothersome false readings. There are some door openers I want to go in and assassinate!

Gonna have to mount from mirror or really shell out for a full hidden system.

I've several postings on this perhaps searching with my title will help find 'em. There are many threads on this. Many. Her's one.
