So I have been doing some research and thinking about buying a detector. I have an old Bel 840i that I have been driving around with just to see if I would even be interested in using a detector.
I have really narrowed my choices to a V1 or the 9500i.
I see lots of praise of the V1 but honestly my friends that have them get the same annoying falses that I do with my old 840i. So in turn they ignore these locations and drive normally, or automaticlly mute/shut off the detector.
I have seen the rants and problems with the 9500i. I have even watched a couple of the videos of it here not picking up a radar gun because a location was marked as a false.
It would seem that even if it is totally locking out a location automaticly, it is only doing what all of us are doing manually by ignoring the falses in these locations.
Which oddly enough was proven to me on my morning drive. There is ALWAYS a false at one spot on the highway and I ALWAYS ignore it. But this morning there was a cop there running traffic. No idea why he ignored me doing 80 in a 55 :roll:
