alright guys i'm 19, and had a few different radar detectors..
cobra (dont remember the model number, got it when i was 16, 150 dollar one from walmart that i picked up used for 40 bucks)
Upgraded to the escort x50 red, and used it for a while, it was a great detector..
Upgraded again just about 3 months ago to the 9500i...mistake..this thing wouldn't pick up the state boys that use ka instant on i think? very good at all...before if there was a car or 2 in front of me with the x50, it would pick it up, then go off..then boom hit me. Saved me several times....well i was driving with the 9500i the other day...on my way home from college...semi maybe an 1/8th of a mile in front of me..going 67 in a 55...boom...state cop...came up ka alert then went off...pop is disabled on the 9500i...i stuck it on ebay and said im going to a v1..sold the 9500i for what i paid for it..250 shipped 30 mins after i listed it..it left today
I found a v1 1.8 no pop for 240 shipped..it needed a power cord, and ive got both on the way..found them off craigslist, and payed through paypal, and he is shipping it to me..if it becomes damaged, i'll have to file a claim through paypal..
serial is 4480790727
does this v1 have pop at all? they arent explaining it on their site very much..does it mean mine will pick it up, but the cops can tell i have a radar detector?
are the state boys using pop? the x50 and 9500i i had pop disabled..but before i got rid of my x50, the range was getting weaker? maybe it was due for a tune? state boys are popping up as ka..town use k and ka.
guys think i made a decent deal for 250?..power cord was 10 bucks so i have 240 in the detector and 10 in the power cord.
I live in illinois...so idk if any of you guys have experience here or anything
