I am currently testing out different types of radars.
This is my experience using the radars. And I thought that I would like share it with everyone.
This weekend I bought a Cobra XRS R7 IntelliLink Wireless Radar/Laser Detector. I drove from Jersey City, NJ to Richmond, VA. At first Ihesitated before purchasing it because I heard people say its doesnt pick up signals good. But I did anyway.
Once i purchased it I immedately installed it (EASY). Then I pulled out the parked lot and noticed that K band signal went off! NO police or anything else but just the stores around me! Next I take it down I-95 and Every 5 to 10 mins or so random I get a POP alert, K, Ka. At first I was like oh s*** it works but then I strated to notice that it was going off to frequent and I figured that its just giving me false alrets. Check this out as I was drive back home to NJ on I-95 north. In northern VA there was a state tropper in a dodge charger SITTING RIGHT SMACK DEAD IN THE MIDDLE of the interstate with no trees or traffic around. Cobra XRS XRS R7 FAILED flat on its .........! NO Ticket by the way.
XRS R7 wireless- Returned back to the store.
Next I went to purchase the Escort 9500i. I was really sketchy about buying this one aswell because of the gps lock out. But I bought it anyway. Idrive down I95 north again to Richmond,VA and I notice a big differnence on distance x. ka. k. it works extremely well! With this system 9x out of 10 when it alerts me its a state trooper.
Escort 9500i I would recommend over the Cobra XRS radar.
Next Im am about to to check out the Beltronics Sti Driver and Beltronics 65
Then Blinder M25 then Intercepetor.
