So I am in the process of looking for radar detectors...I would like to have my decision made by friday.
So far I have been looking at the valentine 1, 9500xi, 8500 x50 and the 9500i...
my first question is, what is the difference between the 9500xi and the 9500i???
I have been reading multiple posts about which evironment the valentine and escort work in. I live in dallas texas and the environments are pretty much equalled out. i drive through high and low end cities and on many highways.
so i get my share of red light cameras and hidden cops.
Personally, i like the feature of the gps technology and weeding out false alarms in the 9500ix.
As far as the valentine 1 goes, ive read that it gets a little better range and has the arrow of direction for the threat. The arrow doesnt meaen to much since I will slow down no matter if i hear a warning or not.
I drive pretty smart for the most part, never gotton a ticket on the highway (knocks on wood) only street tickets which leaves me to believe that an escort would be more effective for me.
So what are yalls thoughts???
