So I like to drive quickly. I’ve gotten a few speeding tickets this year, and if I get another one I am going to lose my license for 6 months. So I want to find a new radar detector that can help me avoid getting into any more trouble.
I’ve looked at a few different models. The Escort Redline, Escort 9500ix, and Valentine One. Now, they are all 3 pretty pricey but from the reviews I have read, they are all 3 among the best radar detectors on the market.
One thing I liked about the Redline is the distance on it’s detection. Some users reported being able to spot traps up to 5 miles away. How they figured out exactly how far the traps were, I don’t know, but knowing that the unit will be able to get me through the hills and mountains without any pesky officers lying in wait makes me a happy camper.
Next was the 9500ix from Escort. It’s slightly cheaper than the Redline, but can is easier to program. It comes with a technology that helps reduce false alerts by storing known locations for you. The GPS tracking and autovolume would be great for the roads I travel on.
Lastly is the Valentine One, or V1. It’s a classic among car enthusiasts and for good reasons. I know plenty of friends who have these in their cars, and swear by them, but something always makes me want to be different. The trend setter, you know.
So there you have it, I’ll make a decision shortly but I wanted to know what you think about the best radar detector out there?
