Great Detector; Poor Mounting System
on May 16, 2016
The Cobra XRS9570 is a good radar detector, especially for the money. It detects several bands, including X, K, Ka, and POP. It detected a radar the first time I used it and sure enough, there was a cop shooting radar behind me. This unit, when properly mounted has 360 degree detection.
The unit is easy to use with very clear and understandable instructions. I programed it to my liking in just a couple of minutes.
My only complaint is the mounting system. The suction cups do not hold the unit to the windshield very long. After a few minutes of driving, the unit is no longer attached to the windshield and falling on the floor. The Velcro adhesive is even worse. I cleaned a spot on my dash but the Velcro will still not stick to it.
I have ordered some industrial strength Velcro and will use that to mount the detector to the dashboard.
The unit is great, but the mounting system is not, therefore I only gave it 4 stars.
