Another new guy saying hello. I have used detectors on / off for 20 years but have to admit I'm behind the times. The last detector I purchased was the Escort 8500 x50 a few years back and wanting to upgrade to something with GPS capability.
We are moving to southern California in ~30 days and will be making the run from south orange county to Chino which takes me down the 241 toll road, the 5 and the 91. Not sure what the CHIP's are using so looking for the best protection.
I have always had good luck with the Escort line and don't know how they are keeping up with the times. I have also read a ton on the Valentine 1 but understand the design / technology haven't been updated in since the launch. I obviously have a ton to learn and will enjoy the knowledge base this forum has to offer.
