I just saw this myself. Valentine seems to be the most popular on here, but rates the lowest. What's up with that?

That database helps alert you when approaching speed cameras and red light cameras.

I'm not sure why. I have had the Passport for a number of years (starting with the 8500 then recently the 9500ci) and am always impressed with the range and sensitivity of the unit. The 9500 is awesome because it "learns" to tune out false positives, so I don't get a lot of noise.

GPS in a RD is another tool to be used but you might want to look at this.

Just food for thought.

My easiest response to this is radar detectors are a waste of $$$. The only time they will be useful is if a patrol unit has a moving radar -- and in that case you hopefully aren't speeding next to a marked police car. The other situation would be if your local department has "speed traps" but the good thing with those is they have to announce them before doing them via news media.

Spend the money on mods-- leave the radar detectors to kids who want to show off.

My detector has saved me several times, paid for itself several times already. I wasn't showing off, just cruising on the highway.

Why should rocky mountain radar be avoided like the plague?

Good question. Someone gave me one and I stuck it on the window and use it. I'm not habitualy heavy footed, but it has saved me a few tickets and the range is outstanding. If I were to buy one, I would not have bought this one though. It's great at finding drug stores and liquor stores and banks.

Because they can't prove that their garbage works. It might detect some radar, but it won't save you from laser.

It's probably medicore at best for radar even given the price. Good detectors are not cheap. However now days you can find refurb RX65s and Escort 8500s for the ~150 range which is a pretty good deal.

I sold my Passport 8500 x50 and was going to get the Passport Max 2, but came across a great deal last week on a new Passport 9500ix for $319.99. It was $349.99 a few weeks ago and it's now $358.49. I thought it was a great deal and couldn't pass it up, plus I got free 2 day shipping with my Prime membership.

Sounds like a defective unit now.
