After reading the forum for a few days now I have a good idea of the type of radar detector I'll be picking up eventually. The problem is, I'll need to save the money for a month or two (and convince the wife ). This leaves me in the position of choosing between two nearly ancient detectors for temporary use:
- Escort Passport 3100 with the laser add-on (Passport 1000?)
- Uniden 6199SW (X, K, Ka, Laser)
Can anyone offer any advice on these? I found an online manual for the Uniden and it seems to be "ok", but in use it seems to false on birds/trees/grass/air etc. I've not been able to find any information about the Passport 3100, so I don't even know all of the bands it can detect. Thanks!
