I currently own an STi Drive (new fixed ramp up ) and I due to the introduction of red light cams here in the state of NJ and all the noisy K shopping centers we have here, I am thinking of switching to a 9500ix.
I looked at some of the threads saying that the STi is more sensitive to around the curve or otherwise (off-axis) radar. That would be a problem for me as off-axis radar is 90% of the time how police are clocking us.
GOL.com results of 2007 show that the 9500ix defeated the STi in the curve tests AND the forward facing test, which is my most primary concern. The STi did not alert me to a late night forward-facing highway patrol using straight forward facing and instant on, but I'm sure the 9500ix wouldn't have either.
Now for the situations like this, would I want the V1? Hell yes. But for now I am debating whether or not I should get rid of the STi and get the 9500ix and if the range is AS good or better in all batteries of detection.
Let me know your thoughts.
