Im looking to get a detector for my poor girlfriend who got tricked into getting a Cobra XRS-9730 soon...
I have a Whistler Pro 78 and love it, but im not sure what to get her...
She is obsessed with how her Cobra looks... and how it is decently small. I know the Cobra has ok straight on detection, but I am worried about her getting hit off axis and not having an advanced warning.
I know I shouldn't think about looks when I buy an RD, bud sadly this is going to come into the equation. Her car is silver, and the Bel Vector series matches that, and has really good performance.
Price range, $150 max.
So basically, its come down to:
XTR-690 Rev C - $115 + $20 to rev C = $135 (Unauthorized)
Reliable, low chance of Service
The Blinking LED's will alert my GF when she booms music.
No X City
Bel Vector 940 - $150 (Authorized, might break so need a warranty)
Matches her Car
Small Warranty (1 Year)
Low X City might be enough to minimize falsing annoyance?
I think either is a worthy replacement of her Cobra XRS-9730...
