Summary: my experience using the Cobra XRS - 9830 Radar Detector was so i would be alarm if there's a cop behind me so i can slow down.what i like about this item is it talks instead of doing the nose beep beep
Summary: I made a trip from Spokane to Mount Rushmore S.D. Speed limits in Idaho, Montana and South Dakota was 75 mph so we just kept the car at 80 mph. I didn't want to use the GPS and the detector at the same tim so it saw limited use. We were not in a giant hurry! It did alert me to radar. (I was only going 5 over)so there was not a problem. I do not know if it would have alerted me in time to save me from a ticket.
Summary: This product doesn’t work so well. Sometimes it advises you and there is no radar. It happened with me several times, however, I liked it. It works well when you are driving on a road. I recommend if you need a radar detector for a road.
Summary: A good radar detector but little out dated. when i got warnings it was a bit of a hassel to tune them down and it did not block (intellishield) singnals like from door openers and microwave antennas. That was rather unconfertable since my attention was on the 9830 radar detector instead of the road. But it's good if you compare it to the price, good value for low price.
Summary: This was a refurbished radar. It worked very well for the first month or so. Now I can't even leave it on because it gets WAY too many false alarms. I mean, I know that all radar detectors will pick up alarms and garage door openers in the city and give false alarms, usually X band, but now this radar, on the highway, has been going crazy, giving off alarms such as VG2 and SP1 constantly, which are alerts for radar detector detectors ?!?
Summary: THAT HAST TO BE ONE OF THE BEST RADAR DETECTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN AND USED.IT HAS HELPED ME IN A LOT OF CLOSE CALLS THANKS FOR THE GREAT BUY.EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ONE THANK YOU FOGHAT1011@YAHOO.COM
Summary: I needed a more modern radar detector but without having to pay a high price. I know that Cobra products have been on the market for many years and that they are reliable. Aspects about the device that I enjoy are the multi-band reception, the voice alerts and that it seems to have fewer false alarms than the other detector that I have had for several years. I have not had the unit for very long so I have not yet seen it perform passing through a radar speed trap.
Summary: I turned the radar detector on it said it was on I push in city and I got not signal repose after going by several police cars with sirens on amd ambulances and fire trucks. I did not signal when radar gun was pointed at my car I was going the speed limit of 55 mph. It just pick up nothing.
