    Default Cobra 9700 vs. Escort Passport 8500 X50

    ok which, in ur opinion, is better.... i don't rly know how each of them work... so... thats one thing... the other thing is that i might be getting my sister's 325i (which has no compass) so i'd have 2 get the cobra, or if i get my Acura TL (which has the std. navi w/ compass thing) then i'll get the escort... but other than that, i have no deciding votes/choices... plz opinionate urselves...

    More like a Yugo GV versus a Saleen S-7

    No comparison. The X50 BLOWS AWAY the 9700

    The X50 is 1,000,000 times better than the Cobra

    Buying a detector for a compass is SOOOOOO STUPID!!!!! Cobra's suck ass and they cover up their suckiness with pointless features

    Buy the Escort 8500 X50 and a $10 suction cup compass you can get at any auto parts store, something like this which is a perfect compass
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What is the deal with everyone needing compasses?
