I didn't want to hijak honest Al's thread about "New police radar band??" but I want to get some input on radar detectors. The one I have is about 9 years old and actually still works ok, but i'm tired of all the false alarms!! :VHOT:
So any recommendations? I don't need the best one out there and I don't want to spend alot of $$ either. Just a good reliable detector that doesn't have alot of false alarms.

Well, I recommend either a Passport 8500 or BEL Vector 995.....I have both. What ever you do, don't buy a Cobra. I have never seen a radar detector false so much (I was given 2 different models for my HS graduation...they are POS)

If you do get a new one....go Escort Passport or BEL (same company). They have different models. Just get the one that fits your needs. They are the best!

Also, I have owned several radar detectors and have found that to get the best: Don't go cheap. If you do, you will get a cheap one that falses alot...aka: Cobra.

If you buy the best, you will never be disappointed. <==My Motto

My main concern is false alarms. The one I have now has never let me down except in the false alarm department.

I think my Passport is better with false alarms. It has been awarded the best radar detector on the market. So upgrading to it would only be a plus!

I am a beltronics fan myself. I have owned two of them and love them...false alarms are very very rare.
I used this site as my guide for which one to buy each time..

Beltronics will go much cheaper on ebay. That is where I got both of mine.
