Thanks everybody for your help. When in doubt,try both! As in the Redline and V1. No doubt the 9500ix would be great for my city driving. But when i do drive the highways,and i will now especially,i want the performance of the Redline or the V1. I can deal with more city falses they have compared to the 9500ix. I just ordered the Redline from radarbusters.com. Instead of posting this as a "New Thread",i posted this first in the "reply" section of my original note in general info. Sorry,newbie mistake.
