    Re: Cars with k-band safety features

    There is no such thing as "new RX330", it's RX350 for the last few years.
    Would it be safe to assume that we are talking about the "adaptive cruise control" feature or is it something else?

    Re: So I sold the 8500 X50 and got the Redline

    Speed cameras? You probably live on another planets. I see the lasers on tripods once every few months :-)
    BTW according to the manual "POP" within the bands selection is off. Who keeps it on?

    So I sold the 8500 X50 and got the Redline

    What can I say?
    The sensitivity is incredible to the point it's almost useless to know that the radar is a few miles ahead of you :-)
    Another nice feature is auto dim wich 8500 lacked.

    9500i is in worth dropping the 8500 X50?

    Is it worth getting rid of 8500 X50 and getting 9500i in Norhtern FL?
    There are no complicated speed traps or cams here so I don't even mention the 9500ix.

    Re: question about 8500 X50

    Well, the radar-detector went into SELF-CAL and SERVICE REQUIRED loop and then to OH for service as a result.
    No chance to get something decent for cheap.

    Thank you! The reason I'm a little bit concerned about the 9500 is my old Uniden GPSRD. Uniden uses the same idea of storing the coordinates of a specific signal and then muting the alert from the...
