    Default What Detector Do You Use?

    I've been reading a lot of threads and watching a lot of movies on which of the three main radar detectors is the best, but what I want to know is which one do YOU choose to run in your car?

    I personally have chosen the Escort 8500 X50 (Red). I feel it gives the best city and highway protection with the least amount of falsing. Granted, it has it's short commings with the LA SM, but all in All i'm very happy.

    I use a Cobra XRS-777 which an e-mail to Cobra confirmed that is is a relabled for Wal-Mart XRS-9700.

    So far I like it just fine.

    I have more detectors and my opinion is that the "best 4" in Europe are BEL 550/BEL 966/BEL RX65/Valentine1 (in alphabetical order).

    Well, I'm using a BEL/Target EVO966RM (it is similar to the American BEL-975).
    I like it for its great sensitivity and it is useful when I drive to a country where RD's are banned. Unfortunately City/AutoMute is missing, that's why I'm using RM (motorbike version) without sound but with a brightly flashing indicator light.

    T-T, why not start a similar poll for European users? The results could be interesting.

    I have the RX65... works for me.

    The x50 seems like a better choice IMO.

    Its a good idea but I have to gather my infos first. It isn't so easy because here are different countries with different type of radars and different laws. For example in UK there is no Ka band and a few Ku band only, detection is legal. In this case BEL/Escort/V1 should be the best against mobile radars but there are many fixed speed-traps (with loop), that's why they may prefer detector with GPS (Snooper S5 or S6). There are many countries where RD are banned - there a built-in model is needed.
    Most of US detectors aren't so efficient here because of the low power output of european radars. Escort or all of Cobra detectors aren't recommended in countries where police is using Ku band radars...

    I think that a little bit hard to make a useful poll for EU but I will do it soon.
