I was very pleasantly surprised by this thing. I have a long commute, 2 hours one way in the Pacific NW, and I ride all year round, which means in the rain most days during winter. Though I stick to trails for 60% of the trip home, I'm forced onto the roadway in several places. My mirrors are OK, but when it's really raining, they're almost worthless. This little radar tells me exactly where the traffic is behind me, how many cars, their relative speeds, and it's right every time. I can't tell you how comforting it is to look over my shoulder and not be surprised by a car flying by, because I already know it's there. There's also an alarm that sounds when a new car enters the cue, and even an old deaf fart like me can hear it over the road noise. The receiver unit is easy to see, small enough to fit just about anywhere, even in a busy cockpit (as you can see from the pic). The radar device doubles as a bright tail light, which is actually as bright as my other dedicated lights. Both use a half turn mount, so easy to get on and off, and the set up took less than a minute. I wish it didn't cost so darn much, but after using this little radar, I won't commute without it. In the dark, PNW winter, this makes for a safer commute, even in the driving rain when I can't see anything on my water soaked mirrors.
