View Full Version : Need advice for buying a radar/laser detector

27-11-10, 01:13
I travel a few hundred miles every week on the highway and would like to get a radar/lidar detector. i've found 2 that are on sale (ones a outlet item and the other one is on sale till 11/30 due to black friday sales) I dont want to spend more than $100 on a radar detector because I only go 10mph over the speed limit and most cops in the area dont pull ppl over for just 10mph over but I dont want to assume that i'm safe doing that infront of all cops, so I still like to slow down around them!

I should also probably mention that in my state, radar detectors ARE legal ;)

What one is better? the Cobra XRS 9940 (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Cobra+-+12-Band+SXRS+Maximum+Performance+Radar/Laser+Detector/9576318.p?skuId=9576318&id=1218127628931#tabbed-customerreviews)
or the Whistler Pro 68SE (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4411126&clickid=cart)
