I havent been on here for a while, but I used to own a V1 and since it was my friends b-day and since he ignored the **** out of me about getting him a radar detector. I decide that I give him my V1( I know I am still beaten myself up for it) But this kid is like my brother and I grew up with him and known him for years. Its the least I could do for him., I havnet usaed a radar detector for couple months know. But found out that is is hard to drive without a detector. I dont have the money to buy anoter V1. But I also found out that my friend who I gave the V1 to got a job at best buy, and you know what that means employee discount.
I really dont need a gps detector, so I dont need the 9500ix and plus it is too expensive. I have decieded to get an 8500 x50. But before buying it I had couple question. I drive mostly suburbs with lots of hills and some curves, and leos around me use nothing my 35.5 ka band (they just love it) Know I now that it isnt going to be a V1, but how well does the newer versions(6.3) of 8500 x50 do on 35.5 ka band.
