Just to be clear, I have done my research on different radar detectors and what not. I'm just wanting some last opinions on my situation. I have been using a 9960G for a while now, and am now about to go ahead and upgrade to a more reputable radar detector and company. I have actually been very pleased with this particular Cobra radar detector believe it or not. My only complaints are the ramp up and off axis encounters.
I'm not an avid speeder or long distance driver quite honestly. I live in a fairly small town, but I still get my fair share of false alerts when driving in through town. Point being, I don't believe false alerts would be a huge issue for me, BUT I've never used a "top of the line" radar detector. I don't do a load of highway driving, but when I do, they are normally pretty long trips.
With false alerts not being much of a problem, what are your top picks? I know I'll get a load of people that will reccomend the Valentine, which is fine, but I'd like a few other suggestions as well.
Just to get to the point, I'm planning on spending a fair amount of money on one that I can keep for several years, rather than buying a decent one and wanting to upgrade again in the near future.
Any information and/or suggestions will be appreciated.
