I would email the seller. He has a really good rating, so if you ask him, I'm sure he'd be straight with you. Can't hurt to ask before you shell out the dough.

Does not seem that cobra detectors get good reviews. I would keep looking even if the price is hard to beat.

cobra radar detectors are worthless. don't buy it unless it says escort or valentine. Mine has paid for itself many times over.

I want to get one, but my fiance complains about them. She says they are annoying. But hell, it would make my driving experiences a lot more fun!

i have an escort x50 8500, and although it has been useful at times, so many cops and troopers here in MN turn their's on and off driving in the opposite direction and use laser traps that its just not worth playing the game with a detector.

you know you can mute almost all of them.

LMAO... NO... You can?! I've never had one, so I really am clueless about them. That would work awesome then. She doesn't ride in the 3 that much anyways, its just me... except for when we go places together, or grocery shopping or something. Thanks for the info. I feel like a radar detector noob... (which I am!)

Don't buy 2nd best when it comes to detectors. You will live to regret it. Spend the extra cash and buy a new Valentine 1. I've been using their stuff for years and it's the best.
And yes, there is a mute button.

But anyway, this thread is about to become an opinionated battle, so I'm going to stop while I'm ahead.

x2

Escort 8500 x50 or 8500 or the Beltronics RX 65 , STi or the v1 will all do you just fine. I've used the Whistler 1770 and 1670 both under $100 both work like a champ. Just know you have ALOT of options out there.

8500 x50 FTW!

Saved my ass coming back from Texas a few times. BMW 5 series and I were tearing ass thru southwestern MO for a good 100 miles or so, and it saved both of us a few times.
