    Smile Which Radar Detector for Zafira GSi ?

    Does anybody know of any good cheap [non GPS !] radar detectors that will work in a Zafira ?.

    I've already got a SpeedCheetah Mirror mounted detector in my vectra (which works great !), but apparently they don't work very well in Zafira's.

    I've been told that its something to do with the windscreen. If you get a re radiating aerial (or somethin like that) it will work fine. I was advised this when getting a Road Angel 2.

    Never heard of re-radiating aerial before. I'll have to look into that.

    I do hope there is something out there that I can use.

    You can sit the sensor in another part of the car, it doesnt have to sit on the front window.......the likes of the Origin B2 can have it mounted to the rear of the car on the back 1/4 window.

    Yeah I've seen people with Origin B2s mount the reciever on the parcel shelf.

    The Origin B2 is however GPS based... but also has a radar detection unit. Out of interest why do you not want a GPS one?
