I remembered seeing a Whstler XTR 695 sale priced for $100 but their was only one and it was gone by the time I got back. I found a used K40 windshield mount rd for $80, as well as the XTR 695 for about $150 on Amazon. I was also considering an escort but I keep reading reviews on shopping sites that claim they tend to have mechanical issues and constantly need to be serviced... So anyways... In your opinion whats the best, most reliable RD I can get for my price range?
You can find the Pro78SE, XTR-690SE online for around $150
If you do not care about having all the bells and whistles like compass, text display or voice, you can find a Pro68SE for around $100 online and has similar performance and a simple but easy to understand hybrid display.
