I am new here and have some main questions,you all might know well and have answered or argued about it...but I hope you guys can clear me up.
I am about to buy a Radar Detector,
Here are my questions:
what is the main Difference between V1 and Passport 8500 ?
as far range goes, I am I asking too much if I want my radar detector that lets me know,when I doing 100mph on the highway,to alarm me,there is a Radar or Laser pointing towards me 2 - 4 miles before the the cop aka radar laser see's me???
I read here,how some of you experience how the alarm sounds of your detector to warn you,but you also see the cop at the same time,so its not like saving your butt at all??? is that true? if yes,what is the point?
I want a radar detector that lets me know,way way ahead of time there is a thread,so I do not have to rush and slow down instantly U know...
I am confuse with that...
All I want is,to be alarted miles away there is a radar, laser pointing at me...I know there is also many types of radars and what not.How do you gusy determine,the radar that was used,was that kind and your detector couldn't read it fast enough???
I thought regardless of what type of radar or laser used...shouldn't it ALWAYS warn you miles and miles away before you even get to see the cop with your own eyes????
Final question... what should I get?????
I am more worried about express ways and highways,since thats where I mostly drive fast.
And the switch turning it into city or highway mode, what is the difference? what would happen if i had my mode on city,and i am driving on the highway or the opposite? whats the best to do? i dislike the idea to keep switching modes instead of leaving one mode on and be protected and warned all the time.
Thank you and hope some of you can asnwer me or give some advice or examples or so....
