I ride a motorcycle so my one definate prerequisite is that the detector that I buy has an ear piece so that I can hear the alerts. I have a cheapo bottom of the line detector in my car but I would like to upgrade from this to something that does not get so many false indications. From what I have read the Escort Passport 8500 seems to be the best radar detector out there, and it does have a headphone jack. I am not looking to spend quite this much money and I was wondering if anyone knows of a middle of the line detector that has this feature. The only others that I have found with a headphone jack are the cobra detectors which I hear suck.
