Situation: I currently go to university and don't drive that often. I clock in about 8 hours of highway driving and about 3 hours of rural town driving a week.
However, the other day I got clocked going 45km (~28mi) over the speed limit on the highway and received a hefty ticket. I've always been interested in purchasing an RD (was looking @ cobras, lol) but now things have gotten a bit more serious so I need to make a decision.
I normally drive 20km (~12mi) over the speed limit in town and 30-50km (20-30mi) over the speed limit on the highway, safely of course, depending on the conditions, number of other vechicles, etc.
I live in Ontario so I need a detector that is completely stealth in order to prevent the unit from being seized. After spending hours on this site, I was dissatisfied that my only real option is the STi since non of the other radars are completely stealth. I feel that this is very unfortunate since I much prefer the features of the Valentine and the sensitivity of some of the other radars that are available.
Now here is where there is an issue for me, money doesn't come easy as a student however if I'm going to buy a RD, I want a higher end model that will best suit my needs. Now I know that for all electronics every X years, the next gen generally comes out. I was wondering if it is worth waiting (because I don't drive that often, for about another 5 months) or should I just go ahead and buy what best suits me now (which I think is the STi)
