I'm having a really hard time deciding between the 9500ix, V1, and Redline.
I live in Socal and drive around in the OC around UC Irvine. Occasionally, I drive down to San Diego to see my girlfriend. Currently I have a XTR-695 and the alerts sometimes are way too short noticed. My Whistler is usually quiet in the city on highway mode with all bands off except Ka.
I'm only looking at the 9500ix because of its GPS capabilities but I read many reviews saying there isn't enough detection range. I like the V1 with the arrows and rear antenna since I know CHP likes to come from behind usually. On the other hand, I heard falses might drive people nuts but my friend also says to run it in logic mode to reduce false alarms. The Redline on the other hand has TSR, frequency ID, and voice would seem to reduce false alarms without sacrificing much range except maybe to the rear which would be bad against CHP on the rear vs V1.
Any suggestions? I'm pretty much leaning towards the V1 right now. Thanks!
