I am a new member and I live in Maryland suburbs of Washington DC.
I live close to work and a result I don't drive much but when I do, I get nailed pretty routinely. I don't even speed that much but somehow every time i get out i get caught. I probably average close to 2 tickets a year and my insurance rates are not pleasant.
I have finally decided to get a radar detector. I have read these boards extensively and it seems like V1 and 9500i are front runners.
What would suit me best in the mixed suburb/freeway/city environment of Montgomery County, MD? I have no clue what type of radar police uses. Can I avoid speed cameras as well?
I do take long highway trips too but I am under the impression that highways have less false alarms so higher end detectors will perform equially well.
Couple days ago i got nailed on I-270 doing 82 in 55 and that was the first time i got on a free way in like a month
I generally don't speed heavily so I am not looking for absolute life-saver for everyday use but I do get out once in a while.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
