I live in Washington State and do most of my driving between Seattle and Bellingham. I do that drive pretty frequently and i usually pass 3-4 speed traps. I drive a 2009 rabbit 2.5 which is a fast enough car to get myself into trouble without a detector. It sounds like police in the area use K, Ka, laser and possibly even occasional xband. My price range is $100-150 so i know right now I’m not going to have the level of protection of a v1 or passport and I was thinking a used bell 955, a whistler 68/78 or one of the xtr models. My main question is how do the lower end whistler xtr's compare to the bell 955's or the whistler 68/78, would a lower end xtr be "good enough" for mostly freeway driving or are they total garbage, and I should spend the money and get a bell or a whistler pro?
also which of those would give the least amount of false alarms?
