I've recently purchased this Cobra 9-band ESD9050 radar detector online but debating whether or not I should return it before opening the box. A couple of questions to anyone who have used/knows about this product:
1) I could not find ANY reviews online on this model. How good is this model compared to ESD7000 or Whistler radar detectors (DE1730, 1734, etc.)? It does cover 3 additional laser types making it 9 band not 6.
2) One feature I really liked on my previous 6-band ESD7000 was that it had a mount bracket Release Button on the top so that I can detach the detector from the bracket w/o having to take off the 2 suction cups from the windshield. I definitely don't see such release button on ESD9050. How easy is it to detach the unit from the bracket?
In my area cops only use Ka band or laser guns so Cobra works fine. Many thanks for your insights, in advance!
