So yea, both my parents want a radar detector(which I'm surpised to hear :P ) Too many close calls (passing a truck at the wrong time, etc)
I saw that they have the 795 from Beltronics at Circuit City for 89 dollars(95 with tax). It says on the box "best performance/price" or something like that. Is it alright for the price?
Then I'm looking for another RD.
Our town is small. All they use are Stalkers which are turned on practically all the time. Originally, I was sure that the motocyle LEOs used IO, but I'm starting to think they might use some sort of Laser gun. My dad does some highway driving, though drives through town. My mom is mostly town driving. There really isn't that many K "falses" (Only Walgreens, the hospital, Publix, and maybe Walmart)
I don't need anything as sensative as the X50(I practically start detecting them halfway through town :P). I'm sure my dad wouldn't mind spending 150-200 dollars, while my mom doesn't need anything spectacular(she's a 5 over speeder, tops. It's more for peace of mind), so prolly 100 tops.
I was thinking the 795 or the Pro-58 for my mom, and one of the mid Bels for my dad. What do you guys recommend?
