Escort Passport Iq Rolls Gps and Radar Detector Into One Device
I am not one of the drivers that tend to habitually speed so I don’t keep a radar detector in my car. My dad on the other hand has a radar detector he has used for years and each time I am in the car with him the thing drives me crazy beeping for no reason.
