Well I got a speeding ticket in Maryland over the Holidays and decided to end that nonsense ... broke down and bought a 9500iX from Escorts web site today.
Spent the better part of a month reading everything I could about RD's and settled on the 9500iX.
I hope I made a good choice, I do part city and part highway in multiple states but mostly PA, OH, NY and MD.
I paid retail for the unit but the lady offered me $80.00 trade in for my 20 year old cobra unit and sold me the Gold Service Plan that includes 39 months of traffic light updates and 3 full years of extended warranty.
I should be good for three years anyway. It was more than I would like to spend but.... you get what you pay for I guess. I hope the database of Stop light cameras and such works good cause I see them all over Hagerstown and Frederick every trip.
I looked hard at the Valentine 1, the Bel STi Driver, and finally the 9500iX. I see that there are some awesome reviews on the Redline offering also. I don't drive in VA much so not real worried about the RDD's there.
Unit should be here in a couple days and I have a trip planned for OH next week, so we will give the unit a good workout...
Does OH still run X and K bands over there?
