Don't drive excessively fast and save the $300.00 for something better? Just saying...

8500 X50 is probably the best detector on the market. The 9500IX is basically the same unit with GPS added (and can do home updates). Get the 8500 X50 and you won't regret it. Mine saves me huge amounts of cash before it got stolen ;(

Yup. I'm too cheap to buy the discreet mounts so my 9500ix is in the middle of the windshield. No reason for me to hide it where I travel in MO/AR (it's perfectly legal in both states). Btw, 9500ix is by far the best detector out there. I travel in a separate vehicle than my sister (who has a Valentine) down to AR all the time, and guess who has 3 less tickets in the past year ;) . For reference, we usually travel about 15-20 over the limit. She's been slammed by Ka twice and LASER once. Note there's nothing you can do about LASER (unless you have a shifter/jammer) but that's still 2 more than me!

I had the 8500 back in the day, then upgraded to the 8500 X50 when the old 8500 died after 5 years. I would still have my blue X50 if it hadn't been stolen from my Jeep in a break in about a year ago. That being said, the 9500ix is a SWEET upgrade.
