Hey guys ive been lurking for a while now figured i should finally join. Ive had some old walmart wistler radar detector for years now. It has saved me from many tickets, however i think its time to upgrade. I think the model im using is only like 3 band detector and its really old. it has x band K and ka, The one i have to watch out for on my roads are K- which is no problem. However the state troopers use something differant ( while moving ) its K/KA these i have litterly no warning at all.
So ive been considering these models
Valentine v1 directly from their websight for 399- Not sure 399 is really necessary for a detector Or is it?
Or a refurb X50 Blue display for 220 ( soft spot for blue)
Or i guess the standard 8500 for 150
I was looking at the 9500ix however, all i read is how the gps is nice, but also has problems with locking out police bands.
oh, and the county i live in is now installing speed cameras, so i need to take this into consideration when purchasing.
