I have been running Radar Detectors in my car for most of my driving life. I have always been a Uniden man (I used the all metal Stalker model for YEARS!), but the last one I bought was a real junker. It was OK performing, but the bracket that slid into the radar broke. It wasn't the quality that I would expect. Which brings me to my question..
I need a stop-gap radar detector until I find a V1 that is in my price range. I was looking at a Escort 5000 on ebay. I was thinking that this would be a better unit then a Cobra for example. Is this worth even buying? These units were awesome back in the day, but I am not sure if they detect the more modern stuff. I have about $50 to 75 to spend.
