Default Cobra XRS-9960G, Beltronics GX65, Passport 9500ix, Cheetah C100 Video

I take four leading GPS detectors and pit them against the red-light monitored intersections of North East Philadelphia.

Lisa and I used our reference GPS detector, the Cheetah C100 (and its sister product, the GPS Mirror) and compared it the latest GPS-enabled radar detectors, the Cobra XRS-9960G, Beltronics GX65, and the Passport 9500ix.





This is a video follow-up to the Cobra XRS-9960G//XRS-9955/XRS-R10G/XRS-R8 Review

That was tremendously, informative, VEIL Guy, thank you!

As a Cheetah GPS-Mirror user (as well as user of the Escort 9500i), I've often wondered if there would be any advantages to also updating my 9500i to an ix.

Truthfully, I think that the only thing to be gained would be the arrow indication of the camera location....but I am not sure if I could stand the overlapping alerts.

And for as much as I appreciate the subtle nature of the alerts on my GPS-Mirror (which is something that I require, given the preferences of my primary passengers) I also really like how eye-grabbing the alert graphics are on the Cobra.

Thanks. I am glad you found it so, as it was a b#@ch to render as the source material was HD. The subsequent rendered file was 2.2GB!

I agree, beyond its very good laser performance, the manner in which this detector alerts to photo enforcement locations, is most impressive for a radar detector. It's alert chimes are very very appealing in sound.

If Cobra addressed its radar alert "ramping" nature (via software) that would go along way to making such a detector, quite desirable overall, IMHO.
