I'm horrid at spending money, but I want/need a new radar detector.. I have three options
The cheapest is I mail my old RX-65 and have it repaired for $100, it usually picks up police after they're in site and with low signal strength. Somethings fishy about it. *shrugs*
Second cheapest is the Bel Pro 300, its $220 (after I trade in my broken RX-65 they knock off 80 bucks).
Or the most expensive is the Bel Pro 500, $320 after they knock off the 80 bucks.
The only reason I don't want a passport is because the bel's are 'pretty much' as good and much cheaper... and the only reason I wasn't looking at a valentine one was because I read that they give a lot of false alarms.. You can correct me if I read wrong on that.
My fear is if they do fix the RX-65 since its already pretty old (at least 5 years, if not more) it may just break again soon. It only comes with a 30 or 90 day warranty after repairs. And I don't know if the Pro 500 is worth the extra $100 just for the GPS/less false alarms. That's where your opinion's are useful! Thanks!
