Not that I would buy either but why would anyone get a GT-1 for $299 and the GT-360 is only $100 more?
That's exactly why they created it. If you want people to buy your target product, give them an inferior product at a lower price point and make them "choose" to spend more. It's like the movie Inception (2010). If the consumer thinks it is their own idea to spend a little more to get a lot more features, now they are happy spending $400 instead of unhappy spending $400.

When McDonalds wants to raise their customers average spend per purchase, instead of raising the price on a product and upsetting customers, they typically introduce a "new" sandwich/burger. This becomes their highlighted and promoted product, and the other option at a cheaper price gets demoted on the menu to a smaller text with no preview image. The consumer "chooses" to spend more. It's a "value" meal, right?

has anyone noticed on the GT 1 that when setting up the Detector there is only 7 bands of KA segmentation where the manual is showing 10. I tried thru escort live and manually thinking I,m missing something but other members have replied that they see only 7

As an entry level model is the GT-1 worth trying? A friend is an old Escort fan who has been out of the RD world for 10+ years and very money conscious. I told him to try a DFR7 @$190 but that's too much he says. Hard to compare reviews from way back with today's models now. I have zero experience with the GT-1 and most Escorts. No GPS I see, meaning I couldn't live with it. Thanks in advance for any input.

There are GT-1s on Ebay direct from escort for $149. I have no experience with them so I can't comment.
