i picked up a 9785 for my impreza the other day and i ran across these boards today, now im debating. do i hang on to it or should i return it while i still can and save up to get the passport 8500 x50. i wanted it because i have a habit of doing some 'spirited' driving around my town... not racing or being a complete moron and surely nothing dangerous, just a little fun. i just want some extra warning when i come up on cops, i do a fair amount of highway driving but i do a good amount of driving around town and my town is rather hilly. so is it worth it to get rid of this thing and get something better whenever i have money and go with nothing in the meantime? i also need to pick up a rack system for my car for ski trips. im a college kid so money is tight, what is your vote?
did a little more reading, i passed a few parked and traveling leo's with no joy, i also passed 2 staties running code 3 in the other direction on the highway, again no joy... now i know that its a radar/laser detector NOT a cop detector, would a better detector have picked them up?
thanks for listening
