I havent owned a radar detector in several years so I stopped by radio shack and picked up a XRS 9485. Looked decent and I neglected to do much research because I needed it for a trip.
Anyways - it sucks. I passed several cops in wide open space on a flat patch of interstate and I would get a KA notification maybe 100ft before passing them. So I figured police radar is now so good that radar detectors are not as useful as they were or cobra sucks. From reading this forum - I see now cobra just sucks!!!
I was thinking of returning it to radio shack and upgrading to a Bel 955 (or whatever the $175 model was).
Do you think I will see a noticeable difference?
