Hello everyone. As you are well aware I am new here. This is a fantastic forum full of very useful information and knowledgeable people; it's great. I'm in the process of purchasing a RD and needed a little technical input/opinion if I may. I know after reading that the V1, 9500CI, and Redline, are amazing but I'm looking towards something a little more reasonable in price. This is slightly counter productive since the more you spend the better RD you will get. Anyways, I just want to get a sort of feel for how they operate before a spend a significant amount of money. Basically, I have grown a liking to the Whistler Pro-3450 Custom Install unit, but haven't seen a forum or test that suggests it's ability to detect radar. I like the idea that it is remotely installed rather than on the windshield. I'm just curious if anyone has some real world experience with this particular unit. How does it compare to other RD's such as the Pro-78se or the XTR-695, or even a low cost Bel Vector such as the 955? Is is the similar or worse? If worse I was looking at the Qi45 but at that price I should probably just get a V1 eh? I had RD's before and they do not irritate me, but there is one option that I would like. The ability to turn of X-Band since it is obsolete in my state (laser would be great to, though not as important.)
Any help or insight would be awesome, keep up the good forum!
