Just placed an order for a new Whistler, after reading carefully through here as always. I have been well served by my 8500 Refurb, after having to send it back in the first week of ownership. But for nearly 2 years it worked flawlessly, except for going dead to laser within the last month or so.
Instead of paying 20 to ship it in, 80, to have it repaired, I decided to try my luck with something with a decent warranty and some filtering for Washington's love of traffic drone radar becons. I've seen on here that filter2 should *help somewhat* mitigate the I5 corridor that made my 8500 useless, we're talking on average 12-15 false alerts for 30 miles.
Thanks as always for the info!
