Will pay for itself...
Pros: #1 - works very well. Police in my area are almost exclusively Ka band which is nice because it's easy to tell if it definitely is a positive signal. Usually, the detector goes ballistic 5 to 15 seconds before I see the radar source. Also, it displays your current speed on the same screen that shows the band detection.
Cons: It catches a lot of signals that I don't understand and really need to invest the time to figure out how to filter those.
Other Thoughts: #1 - Spoiler Alert! newegg.com is the super bomb. I ordered 2nd unit for a friend on sunday evening and it was delivered tues morning... under "std shipping"!!

Pros: It will pick up most radar at a good distance.
Cons: Most of the other features do not work. This was my second one. The speed aleart won't work, It will shut off at any time when driving and I went to down load the GPS it would not work. The battery saver did not work. I sent this unit to Cobra for repair six weeks ago and have not received it back. When I call them they tell me they are still working on it..
Other Thoughts: You would think it would make more sense to replace the unit than to " WORK ON IT " for six weeks.

Cobra XRS 9965 w GPS Safety Camera detector (* XRS 9970G).
Pros: Testing it on my 2002 Jaguar S Type: After installation, I presented my new Cobra XRS 9965 to HW 10.525GHz Radar Gun that I own. KA band passed nicely from both rear and front direction angles giving me a lot of time to slow down, test 2 X band passed fine for some reason was detected slower than KA band from rear angle. For the laser detection my friend took my Jag for test drive going on freeway I5, results were fine (but not enough for going 120miles in 70mile zone), than I’ve decided to mount my Cobra radar 4 inches off the panel instead of 10 inches, results were somewhat better (driving 100 was a pleasure).
Cons: Your XRS 9970G consist of: 1) XRS 9965 Radar/Laser Detector 2) RDA GPSL 66 GPS Locator 3)Lifetime SUB to AURA 4)Mounting ACC 5)12V Power Cord. (*So basically I got Cobra XRS 9965 model but Cobra installed GPS usb device and named this XRS 9970G model (on the back of radar it reads: XRS 9965) OK! Cobra got me upset about it right away, why to sell lower model and call it 9970G if it is NOT, its 9965???
Other Thoughts: Now GPS system was not perfect, after couple of days driving around looking for trouble, I took my Jag to a new intersection where speed camera was installed couple of month ago and got flashed for trusting Cobra GPS, it was not a big thing for me because I got Super Protector on my license plates, but I was hoping to take that off soon after I bought this Cobra radar detector now I changed my mind about doing so.
