i was just wondering if anyone knew of a good radar detector to purchase n if u knew what a good wireless one was too cause i think the wireless ones are pretty cool so just hook me up on that info ok later
Dont even waste your time if youre not gonna spring for the valentine one. I know 400 dollars is a lot of money, but it beats the hell out of everything on the market. I did all kinds of research before I bought mine and I tell you its the best. Im waiting to even see where the cop is for a good 15 seconds after it goes off. I also got the remote display which allows you to mount the v1 up high but have your display somewhere more easily viewed while driving.
That it does. Ultimately its your car and your decision. Ive heard of people having decent luck with the escort 9500 series which I believe has a wireless model(just keep spare batteris handy) Those are in the 250-300 range. If you buy one for 150 though you might as well just throw away your hard earned $. If you are a chronic speeder(like me) save for a little while, the V1 is worth every penny. Good luck
ahha yea 400 is alot of money lol but i dont think i will speed that much i just like to take off fast but yea umm thanks for the info yea i was lookin at the escort one n it was like 250.00(wireless) i like those cause their is no wires so that is always handy n yea u would have ot have batteries but thanks for the info ight man peace
dont get a wireless one... the range is crappy... i have the valentine and it is withotu a doubt the best money spent... umm you can also get the escort passport 8500 x50...that is also one of the best... retailsf or 300, and probably around 200-250 on ebay... you would be wasting your time on any ohter ones
yea i just bought a bel express 930 on ebay for 120 bucks and im already selling it and getting a new one. Its not worth buying a cheaper one, spend the money to get the escort 8500 x50 or something as good. It will be well worth it.
Sry man but dont go w/ the wireless, Valentine one is defenutly the way ot go, even in a few years when urs in outdated, they have a program for which u can update it. The Wireless ones not only have a crappy range, no arrows but also dont tellyou when the batterys are running low, even before there totally out the system is usless w/ out power
might i point out with the V1 their upgrade prices are wayyyy 2 expensive... the current version 1.8 cost $280 (i believe) to upgrade from 1.7, if you sell a version 1.7 on ebay you will get around $300 for it, so its cheaper to buy a brand new one....
and of course that points out the V1 has a HIGH resale value, unlike any ohter radar detector
