    Never had one before. Anyone have any recommendations?


    I've been reading nothing but good things about the Whistler Pro-78SE.

    Looks like it's pretty popular. I may look into that one, too.


    :lol: I knew someone would say that.

    They're illegal in this state. :(

    Not that I really need one... Last ticket I got was in 1984.

    Found the 9500ix online cheaper than I can buy locally, so that will save me enough for the mirror mount and the Invisicord,

    Think I will go for it.

    I even plan on trying it on my bike, I am going to put it in the clear pouch on my tank bag

    My brother picked his up a week or two ago... the GPS is badass.. Its nice so when it first beeps and you look at it, it tells you your speed of when it first beeped..

    It also has the GPS learning.. so that if you go by a location 3 times and you mute it each time at that location, it will then auto learn that and auto mute that each time.

    I have the Escort 850x and it's pretty nice, but Its a lil old, so if I were you I would pick up the 9500ix

    I gave up on radar detectors several years ago, they just told me when I had gotten a ticket. It always seemed like it would go off and then the next thing I saw was red and blues in the rear view.:uhoh:
