    My C100 went airborne and out the window of my truck after ALL the LEDs conked out. Never again. Zero support, other than "buy a new one". Fool me once, shame on you, etc.

    Thanks for that info Roy. Question: Are there any good radar detectors that also have a speedometer on it?

    Cheetah is back into the game with their newest GPS alert system - https://www.radarbusters.com/Cheetah...eetah-c550.htm No one is really sure what happened with Don, who was their US Distributor

    He fell off he face of the RD earth about a year ago and haven't heard from him since. Quite frankly, a iX or even any GPS enabled ER unit will suffice the same as the Cheetah units (C50/150/550) , BUT I do like the Trinity database that Cheetah uses. The ability to adjust "notifications" is nice as well on the 150 that I run.

    I get regular updates for the c50 and purchased two brand new C550s. Had to send my two c150s back.

    Strange... when I attempt to update it tell me my password or username is wrong...
    if I try to re-register, it tells me that username already exist.
    If I change my password... so it emails me a new one I can then logon to the "website" but the cheetah update tool will not.

    I can also change the new password back to my original with no problems but again.. no dice with the update tool... I have the latest I'm assuming since I just re-downloaded it.
    I can't however see where the software version is.

    It does make me feel since I can logon to the website but not get updates that the c50 is no longer being supported.

    It has been almost 2 years since I logged on. Is it possible it forced me to use a new password, then didn't sync with the update database?

    I don't know but I have lifetime membership and its silly to drop support with the right hand but then say "buy another" with the left.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Here I am the next day and now I can update... go figure... I'm guessing my last hunch was correct... takes a while for one database to communicate with the other.... unless it was simply down for a while.
