New here, name is Bryan and I'm from Dallas, Tx. First question, if the police are predominately using laser in my city is there really any point of spending 300 or 400 dollars for a so called laser detector? Next question, if I stay with my GPS Beltronics detector I will have to continue to take it down and put it up every time I park. From many years of experience when younger I had 3 or 4 windows smashed out for my detectors. Here in Texas smash and grab and its as simple as that. Also it gets so hot here that leaving a suction cup or super cup in the windshield will kill it in a few months not to mention bake your stealth equipment. This is why I'm now thinking next best thing like the passport 8500 X50 with a visor clip and the hard wired cord. Out of sight out of mind. Will still take it down if leaving car in a parking garage or apartment lot for the night. I need some serious guidance/suggestions here so please chime in.
Bought the Beltronic Pro500 from reading very good reviews on it but mine seems to be having problems right out of the box. Crutchfield is offering to replace my unit so what do I want to swap it for or do I just want to try a new Pro500??? Pro300 or Passport 8500 x50???
