I'm doing a trip from Winnipeg, Canada to Arizona, and I've been looking into a couple detectors - an 8500 V50 Black and an RX65. Recently, I came across my old BEL 980 in a box and it got me thinking, is this detector still usable? I see it can detect X, K, Ka and Laser. I'm not too concerned about false alarms, but is there anything extremely lacking in the 980 in comparison to the other two models mentioned above? Is it worth shelling out $300 for one of those models vs just using the 980?
Thanks in advance for your patience with a new member. I've read up a fair bit on the new models and have a pretty good understanding of their features, but am in the dark about the 980 and its performance capabilities.
