    Looking for good beginner Radar units and insight for a newbie

    Looking for opinions and insight on what inexpensive radar setup I should buy. Interested in any and all info that may help. I’ve been browsing eBay (only place I could find them) and it seems the fairly priced units are Kustom golden Eagles, decatur and MPH units. Stalkers seem expensive...I...

    Which detectors offer K notch?

    Looking for an cost effective Radar for my GF. She is the furthest thing from an enthusiast (but has learned the tone sounds from all of my Escort products. (i.e "double beep" is a LEO most of the time) She (and I) got super annoyed with my 9500ix and IX with constant K band falses. Looking at...

    9500ci in 2020.....any good? Worth it?

    The bluetooth, escort Live is a great add on. the laser shifters are included with all 9500ci kits. Not entirely sure on the details as far as what is standard and what is added/upgraded but IIRC, the four laser shifter pro receiver heads was an upgrade or standard with the platinum kits. Again...

    9500ci in 2020.....any good? Worth it?

    Hi guys, little update on this. I did end up purchasing it for $420 shipped. Got it in, cleaned up and organized all the wiring, bench tested it with a spare 12v battery I had laying around. performed the software updates (trouble free, thankfully). Tested it out and It worked flawlessly with no...

    9500ci in 2020.....any good? Worth it?

    I have done a little bit more research and have found many 9500ci users to be unhappy with their performance as of the past few years. With that and everything else being considered, I’m going to pass on the CI and stick to my original plan and get 1 RL360c and change it between cars as needed...

    9500ci in 2020.....any good? Worth it?

    Thanks for your insight, Vortex! I was worried about the BSM falses. I have a 9500ix with latest firmware and it gets Honda/Acura falses regularly. Very happy with it otherwise! I wish firmware updates could help more with those. This just seems like such a good deal ($400) I might just end up...

    9500ci in 2020.....any good? Worth it?

    Hi guys. Came across a pretty good deal on a 9500ci, complete kit with box and everything. Wondering if it’s still worth it in 2020 now that the technology is about 15 years old. I would obviously update the firmware to the latest available. Anyone out there running an updated firmware 9500ci in...

    Oh I really want an ALP system... Just a bit too expensive for me at the moment. Maybe sometime next year I'll set aside some money to pick one up. Luckily It's been at least a few months since I've come across a leo shooting laser! 1604072316 I have heard about Theia and have done a bit of...

    Thanks! Good to hear. I've watched every video Vortex Radar has posted about it. So much that my GF asked me the other day, "why do you keep watching videos on that thing?" "You wouldn't understand, Babe...." I'm actually keeping an eye out for a good deal on a 9500ix or Max, Hardwired and...

    Hi everyone! Glad to be here. I've been running radar detectors for about 10 years now. All started when I was 16 with my first car, a 1998 mustang GT convertible... browsing the automotive section at Walmart trying to spend what little money I had working at Raising Canes, I came across a...
