This board has been an incredible help and I wanted to thank everyone for their input.
At the end of the day, I bought a Valentine One for its' arrows and better 360 degree protection. Instead of getting a 9500i, I would much rather get a SRX, but again, the Arrows seem like the killer feature, over GPS (even though this is useful).
While I anxiously wait for my detector, I would love to get help from this board in terms of settings.
Please advise me in terms of insuring that I get a good starting point for tweaking this amazing detector.
I live in Northern California (Bay Area)
Can't wait for feedback.
