    In that case, if you are serious about this - buy two units that could potentially work, use them side by side (but not too close together) and then keep the better one,
    I am definitely not that serious about it! Was hoping to be $200-$300 serious about it but that is starting to feel a little low based on the options.

    I had the 9500ix and got tagged going way too fast on the highway one time. It didnt pick up the rcmp officer at all. I was quite surprised by that. The cop laughed at my radar detector and made fun of me. Rightfully so I suppose.

    I'm still not sure what sort of radar that rcmp used to tag me driving the opposite direction on a one lane highway. The escort at that time was one of the high end radar detectors.

    I'm using the redline international right now so it can pick up mrcd which is used a lot in Alberta.

    MRCD is NOT used a lot in alberta. In fact, there is one city in western canada that has been reported to use MRCD and its not Calgary.

    Thanks for the recommendations, picked up the Uniden R3. Need to figure out how the thing works now!
