I really want a radar detector since I'm a delivery driver for a pizza place, and because I of course need one anyway.
I live in the Tampa Bay area and have no idea what bands are mainly used.
I've already been lasered and pulled over once, and we have plenty of those "Your Current Speed Is" sheriff signs with cameras.
We also have the Red Light cams which I know only will harm me if I run a light.....
anyway, I've been doing some research on this site and reading other stuff on the manufacturers pages and I still can't decide which one is the best for me.
Here is what I'm looking for:
1. Something I can use for a long time (maybe the V1 because of the upgrades)
2. The best for the money (my job pays very well so I can wait a month to get the best)
3. The most applicable one for where I live.
I drive a 1990 Honda Acord LX and I have %15 on all windows and maybe a %10-15 strip on the front.
I have my eyes on a few:
1.-------the V1 because it is upgradable, but I don't know if I should even bother since the rear detection may as well be useless with my tinted rear window.
2.---The Escort X50
3.---The Bel RX65
Bel V995, E795, 895, 970, 985
Whistler Pro 73, 1744(0 or C), 1630, 1730, 1793, 895, 970, 985
and the supposedly crappy Cobra 9700
here are some more which are soon to come out that I don't know very much about
--STI, XTR series.
so basically I don't know if I should even bother to wait for the STI or the XTRs, or if I should just get the V1 or #2 or #3, or any of the others.
Also if you suggest the V1, I would also like to know what would be the best and cheapest backup for my area.
-EDIT- damn maybe I should just wait for this thing http://www.whistlergroup.com/fuzion-spec.html
Thank you for you time and help!
