I just got laid off last week friday, and on top of my "to do" list of things to do...was to buy a radar detector. Now that I am going to be in the city (southern california) during daylight hours I was fearing that I would eventually run into a cop with a radar gun, as I know they have nothing better to do than to run their radars during the daytime.
Well I got lazy and decided to put off buying one.
Then I got a 60mph in a 40mph ticket yesterday.
I was originally going to buy the Valentine 1, based upon several unrelated reviews, but Best buy and Circuit city did not carry the V1, so I had to get the 9500i.
I have heard that it doesn't do as well as the V1 does in picking up lasers.
Is this true?
I also bought it today because I am going on a road trip next week and want a full week to get it installed.
I also bought the 29.99 "stealth cable" and plan on installing that myself.
anyways, I am a total noob to radars so look forward to reading the threads on here.
