Hi everyone....going on a road trip leaving tonight and coming back Sunday. Will be leaving Wilmington, NC and heading to Erie, Pa. And yes Virginia is one of those states in between. I have never owned a RD before so I did a little research on here and radartest.com and went to best buy last night and bought an escort passport 8500 X50. Whether that was the right buy or not, I dont know, but it was in the price range i was looking to spend. ($300)
I have read through the book about all the fancy features and all, but if i just want all-out protection, i just need to plug and play right? You people on here have an endless supply of knowledge and i will continue to learn more as time goes on, but for now, i just need some quick answers on getting the most protection out of it for my departure tonight.
Also, am i best to just unplug the thing and throw it in the back seat while in VA, or unplug after alerted? Because I seen the video where the X50 failed the VG-2 test. I certainly didnt buy a RD to get hit with illegal equipment fines!!! And just one more thing, As long as the state you are in does not ban RD's, It doesnt matter if a cop knows you have one or not right? Thank you in advance.
