Been reading... I know the best radar detector against the Multanova photo radar (34.3Ghz) is the STi-R which has now stopped production (anyone know what the replacement will be???)
But if you're talking about WINDSHIELD detectors... it seems the best game in town is the V1 in Euro mode (not sold by RB), the Bel RX65E (euro version, also not sold by RB), Escort X50E (euro version, again not sold by RB)... but these are all relatively expensive to the.... Whistler 78PRO SE...
I've been reading that Whistler somehow prioritizes the scanning of the frequencies so that the photo radar frequencies (which I'm guessing one of them is 34.3Ghz +/- 100Mhz or so)... is that true?
If so, would the Whistler 78PRO SE (sold by RB) be similar in performance to the RX65E, X50E, or one of those european-sold-only detectors (not considering the V1 either who wont ship outside the USA)?
The Whistler 78PRO SE is just around $200... so it'd be the cheapest option for a windshield photo radar detector with adequate performance?
Note this is just for a rarely driving spare car, I'd have the STi-R for my primary car.
