  • A Cordless Radar Detector and You

    Have you ever gone to drive a friend or family member's vehicle and realized that they have no radar detector. While you could go and get the one you have, what if it is specially mounted, or a concealed install!

    You could go and buy all of them radar detectors, but there is a more simple solution. Why not get a second cordless detector. They are easy to store, and transport, and they have no dangling power cords to deal with. Just make sure it is charged up and you are ready to go, you will never have to drive without a detector again.

    Here are all of the cordless detectors we currently carry:

    Escort Solo S2 Cordless Radar Detector

    Whistler DE-1788 Cordless Radar Detector

    Whistler XTR-185 Cordless Radar Detector

    Whistler XTR-190 Cordless Radar Detector

    Cordless radar detectors are very popular to use with motorcycles as well. One thing to remember though, because of reduced power consumption, performance is usually not as good as with powered models.

  • 2009 Cobra Radar Detector Comparison

    We now have several new Cobra radar detector models now in stock, and thought we should give all of a you a short review of the new options and changes.

    One of the more interesting additions is that the AURA red light camera database functionality has been added to several models. While you will need to buy the GPSL plug-in and then subscribe to the service, this is a great option for those that may not need the red light alerts now but may want to upgrade in the future.

    Cobra also claims that the new detectors provide detection of the Spectre I-IV radar detector detectors (RDDs). We look forward to some independent testing to learn more about this. Also the 9645, 9745, 9845, 9945, 9955, and 9960G have been upgraded to have what is described as "ultra" performance. So all of you radar detector testers (Hi all! Hope you are all doing well.) get to it.

    Ok, here are the main changes for each of the detectors:

    XRS 9345: UltraBright Data Display®, POP mode, IntelliMute® PRO

    XRS 9445: UltraBright Data Display®, POP mode, IntelliMute® PRO

    XRS 9545: DigiView® Text Display, POP mode, IntelliMute® PRO

    XRS 9645: DigiView® Text Display, IntelliMute® PRO, Compass

    XRS 9745: DigiView® Text Display, IntelliMute® PRO, Compass, Voice Alerts

    XRS 9845: ExtremeBright DataGrafix® Display, IntelliMute® PRO, AURA red light camera database option, Compass, Voice Alerts

    XRS 9945: ExtremeBright DataGrafix® Display, IntelliMute® PRO, AURA red light camera database option, Compass, Voice Alerts

    XRS 9960G: DataGrafix® Graphical Display II, AURA and GPSL included, Compass, Voice Alerts
