I can't stop being happy with the purchase, a very good deal!

In general, a good thing, although a little expensive, but it works well. Has some pros Main functionality. It worked for everything that was needed, and very rarely for something that was not needed (shop doors). The sounds are excellent, not annoying, the choice of full-stripped / heterosexual voices for notification is fire. The application for PC is not very "fashionable", or something, but it works fine. It always felt like they were working on the product. Bases are constantly ated, a new

I was surprised by the quality for this price.

In general, there are pluses, there are minuses. This is my first radar detector, so it's a bit difficult for me to judge, I may not be entirely objective. BUT there is, guys, a big "BUT" - traveled in the summer to the Sea of ​​Azov (in total there and back and there - 4800 km), a month has passed - not a single "letter of happiness". And this "BUT" outweighs everything. In fact, he has already worked out half of his cost (he took it in the spring for 6500). Therefore, I am satisfied with the…

  • - Qualitatively assembled, does not creak, does not play. Feels like quality. The sticker on the case says "Made in Korea". - Stylish stuff. - I installed the latest firmware with reduced chatter + additional settings = just class: chatting only on business and when necessary. At the same time, the notification is heard even when the radio is turned on loudly, and without music, I want to reduce the sound. - A good bright display, the information is perfectly readable in the sun, and at night I reduce the brightness to a minimum, otherwise it hurts my eyes. - Good database of radars, ates via the Internet. - The signature is top notch. "Arrow" catches at a time for 800 meters. - Many modes, the possibility of individual settings. - Long cord and good connector. Add. socket on the back of the plug into the cigarette lighter - you can connect something else. - Catching cameras in the back.
  • - There are VERY many false positives in the K-band along the highway - auto doors at gas stations, adaptive cruise control and dead zone sensors on passing cars, etc. Although, maybe this is a tuning issue, but I tried. - Mobile "Chris" catches VERY poorly. Roughly: out of 10 meetings - in 7 cases he simply does not see him even at close range, in 2 cases - he squeaks for 50-100 m (when, in fact, it is already too late), and only in one he is normally determined from afar. - At the entrance to the Hong Kong Ring Road, you need to switch to "City 1-2-3", otherwise it will torment you to repeat "arrow-camera in the back-camera strip-video block-dummy" endlessly. I just unplug. - Bad suction cups on the glass and an ugly mount in general. But I put on a sticky silicone mat for 80. - does not go, does not fall, remove-put very easily and quickly, everything is OK.

I was surprised by the quality for this price.

There was a break of 4 years, in the use of radar detectors, I was pleasantly surprised in their technical and software development. Really for a couple of months already justified its cost). Recommend.

  • Kind of "standard". 1. ates are released almost weekly. 2. Works on mobile "tripods" that look in the back. You manage to slow down. 3. Smart mode.
  • The device itself is top notch. But only the suction cup holder is included. It would be nice, like some manufacturers, to also have a "bath".

The perfect purchase for me, exactly what I was looking for!

Great product, my husband and I love it. Producer Korea. ate the database through a computer, there is a USB cable included. The Silverstone F1 Monaco radar detector works on all cameras that we have - it was checked by a trip to Hong Kong.

  • There is a function-power adapter with a cigarette lighter socket, works as an adapter, which allows you to connect another device. Warns about radars in advance and about those cameras that photograph the car from behind. Convenient suction cup mount, can be mounted both on the panel and on the windshield. Voice alert warns of radars and the display indicates the recommended speed on certain sections of the road.
  • no.

Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good purchase.

I remake all radars on a magnetic mount with contacts on them. I would like manufacturers to start making quick-release mounts. it is not very fast to remove from the standard mount and every time you insert and remove the connector it is annoying.

  • Excellent radar, I have been using it for more than 5 years for sure.
  • If the next one is only cooler and with a hidden installation. Began to podglyuchivat volume potentiometer. But this is understandable. operating time is not long enough.

The quality is at the highest level, be sure to try it.

I am quite satisfied with the radar and would gladly recommend it to my friends for purchase. I think that today it is one of the best and relatively inexpensive radars. Its pros: Detailed voice guidance, good sensitivity, the minimum number of false positives, coordinates with cameras are well marked. Has some cons: With voice guidance, there is too much information that is completely optional for the driver.

No complaints, I recommend to buy.

Long delivery. The product was not available from the seller, although it was allegedly on the site! I waited an additional week until the seller orders and receives the goods!

The best I ever used, recommend it to everybody.

In our city, they began to actively install cameras thatcomntrol the STOP line and average speed, the radar detector helps a lot, it tells what is being monitored, as well as the direction (if the radar hits in the back). I optimized the process of ating the databases using acommand line script, the file with the. bat extension starts checking the databases on the site and downloads the latest version of the databases with full female voice acting (I'm better off this way), after which it…

  • There are very few false positives, practically none. He sees the cameras in advance, until he missed one, he sees portable tripods and even says the model.
  • I wanted the program to load the databases on its own, and not click through the site, then unpack the archives.

Unique thing. Bought set and forgot about the problems with the traffic police. It even catches laser signals "LISD" and "Strelka" from traffic police cars. Do not worry in vain. The main advantage catches a 360-degree angle and in the city warns me about the danger of traffic cops from behind. The price is reasonable considering the constant ating of databases and a 12-month warranty. There are several modes, but you can set it to "Smart" and the device itself chooses how to work more…

  • Design
  • Not detected

Otherwise, the device does not cause any complaints, but sometimes I just turn it off to sit in silence. Pros: signature GPS module works flawlessly Shows in meters the distance to the camera according to the GPS tag For avtodoria type cameras, it shows the average speed on the section Easy enough to ate Cons: The main drawback is that the radar speaks a lot, I don’t know how it is in other cities, but in Hong Kong it simply doesn’t shut up, everything would be better if the developers didn’t…

The quality is at the level, I am satisfied with everything.

I bought it in February 17, and it is still relevant, because it is ated in a timely manner. For their (even today's) money - perhaps the best device for not really a racer who just needs to avoid getting hit by chance. I put it on the panel, connected it, ated it every 3 months (less often) and that's it. If you set only the signature mode and set it up correctly, then it will yell only when there is a real danger.

  • Since the radar is signature, the number of false positives is significantly lower than that of other, non-signature counterparts. Small, discreet, I leave it in the car, until no one has coveted for 4 years. ates are released periodically, it is easy to ate, the algorithm is simple and understandable.
  • On Mazda, Lexus and Porsche, equipped with blind spot monitoring, it is still sometimes carried out.

It functions perfectly, nothing unusual.

Saves on the track. Once, after a fresh ate of signature databases, radar detection worked. The reason turned out to be not the latest model, the Opel in front (I checked this for sure, overtaking the car and letting myself be overtaken). I would shorten the lines. The screen is not color - not informative. Would not recommend due to the quality of the volume control and screen.

  • Signature analysis allows you to get rid of most interference, false positives. Does the main function well.
  • The quality of the element base is poor. Acquired with a vertical dark stripe. They fixed it. However, the volume and power controls have deteriorated, as on the previous model (not the signature one) that I had. The button has been removed from the model, allowing you to unfasten the device from the mount (unlike the previous non-signature one)! Talkative model, I would cut the lines.

Nice price, good quality.

The device in and of itself is of very high quality; but, before purchasing, you must pay careful attention to the following: 1) If the store has electricity (for example, a cigarette lighter), test the functionality of the gadget by plugging it into the power source. And moreover how the buttons are pressed on it. Ideally, they should be able to walk both ways! Alternatively, check in the car (before paperwork). You could also ask a member of the store's staff to accompany you to your vehicle.

  • To this point, the performance of the radar that was replaced because it was defective has been adequate. Everything works out wonderfully.
  • And now some disadvantages: After making the purchase, it was discovered that the buttons on the device itself did not function properly. After the purchase (of the first gadget), it started functioning properly, spoke all of the information, and updated the database and firmware via the program installed on the computer. It was discovered, however, that the buttons on the device itself do not operate at all! In addition to that, the suction cup mount was difficult to disengage from the gadget. I had to struggle for an entire hour in order to turn it off! (I invested in a low-cost adhesive mat. Tough square lindens are included in the kit. They are fastened together with double-sided tape on the back, which, when attempting to remove the device from the panel, caused the tape to remain on the panel itself. As a result, the device, as well as the square lindens that were fastened together, were torn off. And still further! On the other side of the power plug is another input socket (for a DVR or something else). But! The internal wiring has a design flaw that hinders the connecting of a second device of some kind. The problem has been solved (see comments) As the warranty had expired by the time the problem occurred (in May 2022), I had to take it apart and hand-tighten the screw that was attached to the volume increase wheel. And simultaneously (!) the wires inside the power plug started to fray (where another plug from the navigator was inserted). I had to unscrew it in order to solder it back together. It appears like a trivial matter, but it could have unfavorable consequences: what if the screw that was unscrewed closed something? Despite the fact that nobody has had any concerns regarding the way the device actually works.

I really like the product, it fully meets my expectations.

I recently purchased this radar detector. I chose this radar detector, because it suited me both in terms of price and parameters. Feels like quality. Assembled with high quality, does not creak, does not play. Good database of radars, ates come steadily. You can customize it individually, everything is simple and clear. The display is clearly visible in any weather. The most important plus is that it recognizes all radars, it warns perfectly and performs its functions clearly. Of course, there

  • Assembled with high quality, does not creak, does not play. Good database of radars, ates come steadily. Ease of controls. Display.
  • Sometimes there are false positives

The best thing Ive ever used, a great item for everyone!

I have been planning to buy a radar detector for a long time and chose the SilverStone F1 Monaco S. The model is compact, has good functionality, and is easy to use. The kit includes a USB cable, Velcro, mount, adapter and instructions on how to use. In order to avoid problems with switching modes, you must initially set the settings correctly, everything is as written in the instructions. In general, I'm satisfied. This is not the most expensive model and has been running for 7 months without…

  • Not expensive, compact model
  • As long as everyone likes

Worst product ever, disappointed with the purchase.

The reality is that now there are no methods against Kostya Saprykin. Well, i. E. against new modern radars. Therefore, do not suffer, get a database of regularly ated static radars on some android almost for free and drive carefully without breaking the rules. Good luck to everyone on the road. And the reviews seem to be fake. Pros: Looks good. Fastens well. Compact. The databases are ated frequently. Has some cons Spend the money on something else: drink it, give it to the homeless, throw it…

Everything in the purchase suits, a very necessary product.

I want to share my impression of buying this radar. Not so long ago I acquired a similar radar, just a different model. The car had to change and accordingly buy a new accessory. Only the Monaco S model was available. It detects autumn accurately, without fail. Small, simple and easy to use. Not heavy, compact. Recommend.

A little bit not what I expected, generally fine.

Other than that, there haven't been any problems associated with the device, however there are moments when I just want to be left alone with my thoughts. The signature GPS module functions without any issues. Displays the distance to the camera in meters as determined by the GPS tag. If the camera is of the avtodoria variety, it will display the section's average speed. Simple enough to chew and swallow Cons: The most significant drawback is that the radar makes a lot of noise; I'm not sure…

I'm very happy, it really is worth buying.

The actual size was significantly less than what was depicted in the photo. In general, a very deserving rival to Sho Mi's place in the market. On October 16th, 2017, two different versions of the firmware were made available, one of which featured truncated voice acting while the other featured full-fledged voice acting. I installed the truncated version of the firmware, and as a result, I finally obtained the ideal device for my needs! Some pros: To this point, he has demonstrated that there
