sure you get plenty of these sort of threads but ive done abit of searching and couldnt find much, well relateing to UK customers anyway. i'll probably be goiing for something off ebay so its a case of whatever comes up but just after some oppinions. ive got my blinder on the front and am looking for something that will give me a decent warning to any gatso or any other fixed cameras or cops following me with the radar running so 360 degree sensing is pritty important. at the same time i want to spend the least cash, obviosly
i've been looking at the bel 550 europe and it seems a good detector with decent reviews but is it a bit dated now, if things change that much in the world of radar and laser?? being a total newbie i dont know. i was speaking to one member who said his bel 550 didnt go off when he got hit from the rear, but he also mentioned that it was due to the mounting position.
i missed out on a V1 the other week that wentfor 135 GBP inc shipping which i guess is about just under 270 USD! also missed oit on a bel 550 that went for about 40 GBP so about 80 USD so thought i'll get this post up and see what the pros recomend.
unless i get a good second hand price the V1 and other high end detectors are out of my price range but im looking at the bel 990 and 995 that are currently on ebay so just after a few opinions on those mentioned, bel 550, 995 and 990.
with the different bands and frequencys and how do they work? would i be able to turn the ones off that we dont have in the UK to save it falseing? what bands do we have here if anyone knows. sorry if this is in the wrong section mods, please move it as appropriate if it is.
