Well, after asking around i heard i should go with this... but i have some questions.
1. I am aware that it isn't a "cop detector" but lets say i pass a cop in a 30, going 50+ could he pull me over if he doesn't have a gun?
2. Is their any type of radar detectors/guns in NY that the 8500 wouldn't pick up, if so do you think I should switch?
3. If you think i should keep the 8500 series how should i set it up? I heard in some areas you are supposed to disable the X band.
4. What is advanced mode?
I have already gotten a ticket going 135 in a 50................ you can imagine why I must have the best of the best. Money is not really an issue for a detector, i just cant get anymore points and my thrill in life is driving. I want something like a 8500 small, easy to move, and easy to hide if needed. I don't one of the big ones you install in your car. Your help is much appreciated!
