Hello, I live in Peoria, IL. I always search forums and read reviews for quite some time before making my purchases. I've been lurking around here for a couple days, and decided to join the community to get expert advice. I am in the market for a new radar detector and possibly some more of the goodies like veil, etc...
I travel from Peoria, IL to Iowa City, IA frequently, and would like to know any information that could be provided for me around here (i.e. types of radar/laser used, etc...). I am just getting started and looking to purchase a detector first off I believe.
I saw the escort 8500 (non-x50) refurbished with warranty on ebay for $150 with free shipping. I also have been looking at the Whistler Pro 78 too though. I guess my price point is $175 or lower. I would like to plop down $300 or more, but i'm not sure I want to invest that much at this time.
That said, I do like electronics and gadgets, and really don't speed often. The jammer technology is amazing and the new adhesives are interesting as well. I'm also very interested in the plate hiding devices. Before I begin purchasing equipment though, I thought I'd ask to see what I should be looking for in the area that I drive. I drive a 08 honda civic.
Thanks in advance,
