A great convenience and tool to have while traveling and helps with making me conscious of my 'speed.' I found myself using it more on long 'road trips' rather than in 'city limits' even though it is programed for these kinds of areas. The different functions of this detector are great and it came in 'handy' several times. It is a very 'user-friendly gadget and would highly recommend it to anyone. It isn't big and bulky and can be placed in inconspicuous areas of the car, just a long as the 'radar eye' is clear of objects.
