Its been a busy few weeks, BUT I am already looking at getting a new detector. My 8500 x50 blue is awesome and has never failed to alert me to a radar trap, but I get real annoyed with the K-band falses that I have been getting in densely populated areas. I am thinking about selling my x50 and getting a V1 so that I can turn off X and K bands easily when I am in the city/suburbs.
I don't want to incite a whole V1 vs. x50 debate, but would there be any benefit for me in selling my x50 and putting down the extra $150 for a refurb V1? From what I have read its a 50/50 split over which unit is better. Alex Roy from the "Driver" book swears by the V1, and as much as I hate to pay attention to stuff like that, I think this guy knows a thing or two about cop-proofing a car.
The more research I do the less I am concerned about laser protection. (Don't hate me for saying that ) I don't really speed in the city where laser is used, but the empty suburban roads have tons of police traps, and they only use laser. Thus, I think a good radar detector will suit me perfectly. Which one is the question!
Thanks for the help in advance!!
