    and that is a fact.

    which please me a lot.

    BTW that unit you tested is a bit OLD version in this line.

    No doubt some tweaks were performed in the newer units I would bet
    But, you're guessing. You don't know if there are any improvements between the top-of-the-line Cobra I tested and the unit you currently run. The only way to know for sure is to test.

    So is 2/10 of a mile for a 9500ci. The results are relative.

    Every encounter is different. I've had 1/2 mile detections that I thought were great under the circumstances and 1/2 mile detections that I thought were terrible. Saying "I got this distance" means nothing unless there is some way to know what other detectors would have done in the same scenario.

    If you think your Cobra is truly an excellent detector, send it to me and I'll run it against my daily gauntlet and post the videos. The videos don't lie. If you are right and Cobra is truly making detectors worthy of praise, the videos will back up your testimony.

    well I don't have time to make a lengthy reply now unfortunately.

    Sorry about this.

    Later I will try to but I know one thing for certain.

    There were some software changes in later models because my Cobra tells narrower in bad freqs. like the whistlers does unlike the unit you tested.

    This is just a feature and has nothing to do with performance. I'm pretty sure the detection platform is the same.

    well one more post while I have time.

    yes, I know it a feature but the detector IMO has to to monitor in band feqs, much more carefully to accomplish this.

    apparently it does as it is pretty accurate from what I have seen so far.

    Unlike mt Whistler !

    I have AGES of experience with RD's and the new Cobra's have been a very nice pleasant surprise.

    R/R will even back me on this ! LOL !

    I would but surprisingly to me as anyone else I am as fond of this little so called under achiever Cobra as many people are of their v 1's !

    I would just miss it too much

    the area I live in has a constant off and on radar trap going all the time with very creative troopers running the show,

    they run IO/CO and all variations in between and move their traps constantly and the road is both curved and very hilly with flat stretches

    this unit has been tested out eight ways to sunday and then some.

    I should be asking you to send me your detectors for testing in fact !

    But I'm not..

    Fine. What model number is it? I'll buy one and see if it's as good as you say.

    I got mine for cheap at a radio shack clearance LOL !

    all gone

    along with a Bell 995 that just sits in the box so far as the Cobra's list of features are pretty superior

    a Cobra XRS 9990

    but if I were you you may want to step your game up a bit further and go for the best in the series with touch keypad and with the lifetime aura subscription

    that is what I would do

    Frankly even better thing to do is save your cash and wait for the NEW series and be one of the first to check it out.

    It's coming out soon

    Clearly this has to be the best detector Cobra has ever made. In fact it might be the best detector ever made.

    Not only does it detect 15 bands, but it has "super xtreme range superheterodyne" technology, a big leap forward from their lesser models that only have "xtreme range superheterodyne" technology.
