We'll, its official. I've just ordered a new car(BMW 135i) and my new detector for my car will be the new blue 9500i. My V1 has been claimed by my wife.
I bought a 9500i when they were first released. I returned the unit for a new V1 (I've had V1's before). I have found I missed the features on the 9500i, I also found I like its KA band range better than my V1. (Yes, I know the V1 is suppose to be the best in the KA band..but not what I found)
Don't get me wrong, the V1 is great. However, I have found it annoying after using a 9500i. I also found that anytime my 9500i would alert to a KA band hit, I would soon visually spot a highway patrol car. My V1 has had a few issues where it would hit a KA band, then J it out.
I've been follwoing the updates to the 9500i and it sounds like a very solid detector now.
Now, any recommendations..... BLUE VS RED??? Pro's/con's... I've personally never had a blue led detector and think the change will enhance the overall detector.(just something new and different).
