Would like to hear if you have installed counter measures on you 356 and have photos. Has it been useful?

Blendmount makes several great mounts that utilize rear view mirror. BTW, most radar detectors require 12 volts to operate. 6 volts won't work. Valentine is best detector IMHO. It looks forward and rearward. Of course, if police officer uses the "Instant On" feature (i.e., doesn't leave radar/laser/etc on continuous operation), you will probably get a ticket if speeding excessively since he/she will get you as soon as the alarm is sounded! You will have a fighting chance if there is a lot of targets (traffic) but if you are only car on the road, and officer is smart, he/she WILL get you! What I am saying is, even the best detector is not infallible! Best to have a great detector, use cruise control and keep speed to less that 15 mph over the speed limit.

I have both a Valentine 1 and the new Escort Max 360. Both work very well, look forward and backward and have arrows that indicate the location of the radar source. Both also indicate the number of sources. Can't tell you how many times they've saved me. Laser? If you get a valid laser hit, pull over, you're toast... Also, try Waze on your cell phone. Good for navigation as well as road "awareness." I use a small voltage converter that yields 12V and built a small box with a lighter socket as an interface.
