I'm considering a remote detector, such as the SR7 or RX75, because I have a convertible and it's a real pain to take the detector down everytime I run into a store. I've heard that remotes have a shorter range because they're so low to the ground, but I don't know how much to believe that. It's hard to imagine that there are radar waves up at my windshield, but not a couple of feet lower around my bumper. Does anyone have any actual experience with remotes.... I'd be interested to know if you thought the performance was sacrificed? My car is very low to the ground (Corvette), so if there really is a loss of range, it will be even worse with my car.
Also - Any rumors about either of the above detectors (SR7 or RX75) being updated anytime soon? I hate the thought of spending so much on a detector that's not the most current tecnology. (But again, it's a hassle to use a normal detector with the convertible).
Thanks in advance.
