Hey guys: First post. I travel I-94 in Wisconsin and occasionally travel into the Twin Cities. Haven't had a radar detector in 20+ years but got a stupid ticket just daydreaming 56 in a 35 as it went from 55 to 35. Also, haven't had a speeding ticket in 20+ years.
Anyway I have to visit the county D.A. to get him to knock it down a couple and then go on with life.
I need to pick up a unit to save me from getting another ticket. I have read quite a bit on this site and looked at the 8500 X50 (which has just went up in price the last few days - according to Google Shopping) and need advice from you experts. For mainly Wisconsin/Minnesota travel should I purchase a used 8500 X50? Would a used one hold up. I see in the south they shut down from heat. I see some need to be re-calibrated. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
