I am new to these forums. I currently drive a great deal (college student) and was looking for a radar detector. Being that I am in college, I don't have a enormous amount of money to spend. My max is around $220.
About me: I go to queensboro community college in Queen. I drive from Farmingdale, NY and take the L.I.E. and the northern state parkway, for a commute on the highways of about 31 miles. I tend to speed quite a bit, but still no tickets.
What I am looking for:
- A RD with great Range* - most important !!!
- I don't mind false alerts
- Good for both highway and City
- Im fine with refurb
- MUST BE IN MY PRICE RANGE
I have read radar roys buyer guide, and found the excort 8500 (no x50) for $160 on ebay refurb from escort. What other suggestion do you have? Bullet 1 is most important for me. Please help me!!!!
