I just ordered a Redline.
I have read about the large amount of falsing with the Redline. It makes sense of course given the extra sensitivity of the Redline of course, although the 9500i is more sensitive than my 8500 X50 and the former still issues FAR less alerts even on H mode and with the GPS filter off.
I have been spoiled by my 9500i's amazing lack of falsing (even without using TruLock since I have read enough reports of it locking out a real LEO in the same radius).
I ordered the Redline partly because I love having something that will give me extended radar detection range - verdict is still out on its laser performance) and partly to have the latest and greatest (at least in terms of detection sensitivity).
I drive 90% of my daily 86+ mile round trip commute on the highways, with almost all of the highway portion being the NJ GSP) so I hope it will help there.
I figure, even though the 9500i has enough range for most situations, that the Redline could be of value as follows:
It could help detect I/O hits on cars (rabbits etc.) in front of you where you might miss the alert if using the 9500i due to extra sensitivity of the Redline.
I am especially thinking of low traffic volume situations, especially on the highway, at night where the rabbit might be far ahead of you.
Has anyone thought about this (part in bold) as one reason the Redline could come in handy where the 9500i could fail to alert due to lower sensitivity?
I would love to get a consensus on this line of thought from other Redline / 9500i users.
I plan to use the Redline for my daily mostly-highway commute (hopefully it won't false too much given how much I have been spoiled by the 9500i) and pan to use the 9500i when I have passengers and am mostly in town.
I guess I have 30 days to make up my mind.
