I'm torn between these two detectors. I like the GPS features in the 9500 and I'd love to have a quiet detector w/ essentially no falses...BUT, we've got so much mobile photo radar here (low power, vertically polarized) that the speedcam database will never pick up.
If I'm not mistaken, Radar Roy said in his video review that the Redline outperformed the V1 by about 100 ft in most instances...and then he went on to say that the V1 only picked up the photo vans about 100 ft out...which means the Redline was only picking it up 200 feet out. That's <2 seconds at highway speeds.
Was that the intent of his review (to indicate only 200 ft of warning) or was he just saying that 100 ft doesn't sound like much, but it is?
At any rate, wondering if anyone has experience w/ distances on the 9500ix and the photo vans.
