My question is .. What was the main reason you purchased your radar detector?
First, I donít street race. I wanted something that will remind me that Iím exceeding the posted limit. At times I do find myself driving 10 or so above the posted speed limit. Itís been years since I owned a RD. In 2008 I took delivery of a new Corvette at the National Corvette Museum. I noticed while driving it home that I was exceeding the speed limit by a huge amount. I felt that this was just the case of getting used to driving this machine. During the coming months I decided it would be to my best interest to look for a RD to keep me aware. The cars heads up display on the windshield showing my speed was not enough to keep me safe. One afternoon I was pulled over by a local Sherriff. I was positive that I was going to get ticketed for my speed. He came to my window and all he said was that I need to get a front license plate.
I decided to get a RD and after testing a couple I decided to use the 9500ix. I wanted something that would give me as little false alarms as possible and the ix seems to be doing a good job.
I know everyone has their own idea or preference as to which one is the best. We all know that none will guarantee that you will never get a speeding ticket.
Merry Christmas to all
