OK, so I've been a radar detector user for a number of years, and during that time, I have jumped around to a few different detectors.
My first foray into the world of radar detectors was the Escort 8500, which while decent - really annoyed me with the false alarms and limit functionality compared to something like a 9500ix.
I then tried a 9500i, and afterwards a 9500ix. In between, I also had a Valentine 1.
Basically, for me recently it was between the 9500ix and Valentine 1. I love the arrows and interface of the V1, but the false alerts really bother me as I live in the tri-state area with numerous falses. Until ESP and Savvy come out for V1, which could mean less falses, I am not sure i want to go this route.
Now, I currently have an 9500ix. But it's getting old and needs an upgrade. I love the GPS filtering, and speedtrap/camera information. Makes the detector more useful.
Here's what I am thinking of getting, and Escort Live puts a new perspective on things: I had before always preferred the V1 over the RedLine due to the arrows, but now the RedLine can basically be turned into a 9500ix with Escort Live, with GPS filtering, cameras, etc. This puts it in a different perspective, so I am thinking of getting it. I still miss the V1, though..and I really wonder what ESP will come out with.
Any ideas out there?
