I just found this site a few days ago and have been doing a lot of reading, but I figured it's time to sign up so that I can participate in the discussions.
I've had a couple of detectors in the past, the first a cheapo cobra that I had to learn the hard way was a piece of garbage. The second a Bel V940 which served me fairly well until it was a victim of a smash and grab out of my car when I left it mounted on my window overnight. So recently I decided that I needed to get a detector again, and I found a refurbished Bel V995 on Amazon for $150 and ordered it a couple days ago.. It's currently in the mail, so I have no idea if it's any good or not, but I figured it has to be at least as good as the 940.
I like the idea of being able to see the exact radar freq so as to differentiate from falses. Can anyone tell me what other differences/improvements I can expect from the 995 as opposed to the 940?
Also, I recently read a thread where they were discussing that freqs usually come from what sources, and they said that perhaps it was a "Cobra".. What is a Cobra?
