I'm a little confused - trying to ask some questions in threads and it won't yet let me reply but lets me post in introductions. No offense but I didn't come here to tell you all about me lol - I want to find the right radar detector for me? Well I guess if this is the only place I can post here goes:
I live in an area where radar detectors are illegal. I also have an Infiniti with Laser Cruise and Distance Control that I use constantly (40k+ per year).
After as much research as I can do without being able to ask questions, I've boiled it down to either the Escort CI line (8500ci $800 or 9500ci @ $1800) or the Beltronics STiR @ $1000.
After quite a bit of research (haven't called them cause its been a long vaca weekend) I do NOT believe the 8500ci is magnesium housed and is detectable - same as the QI45. Do I have that right?
If so I think that locks me out of Escort becuase I dont want a windsheild mount (Unless there is some way to 100% hide it) and I don't really want/need laser shifting since my cruise will probably constantly mess with it. Do I have that correct?
Therefore I am leaning towards the STiR @ $1000 which gives me both undetectiblity and component install so I can hide the display in my ashtray.
Are there other options I am not aware of? And when can I post in real sections?
