It's been a while since I came here to discuss getting a new RD! But alas, I come to RD.net for advice. Here's my situation...
I have V1 right now. It's a great detector (love the arrows), but since I now live in a more urban area, the false alarms are extremely annoying. (inb4 mute it.) On the other hand, before my V1 I had a 9500ix. It seems the 9500ix would be perfect for my new driving habits. (I was 18 when I got the V1. I'm now 21, I drive an ambulance, I'm trying to be more responsible, etc.) And as a tech buff, I like to try out new things. I dig the idea of Escort Live. I've also been doing more traveling and would like to start using Escort's defender database again.
What do you guys think? As it stands, I'm really just deciding between that green LED gamer edition and the blue one. I can easily afford it, and it would be even easier with Escort's payment plan. And I could try it for 30 days.
Not hating on the V1, but it doesn't fit my style of driving anymore. As far as the muting, I gave Savvy a thought but decided I'd rather have the GPS-based muting of the 9500ix.
You guys are the experts. Chime in
