radar dector questions?

Recommended Posts

i need help before i chuck my radar detector off of a tall building, lol. I live in central CA and i keep seeing CHP officers (highway patrol) radar detectors pointed right at my 96 GT and 97 Cobra and nothing from the damn detector....not even a damn BEEP!!!!! I have played around with turning pop mode on and off, have it on the most sensitive mode with full KA ID.....what is going on here??????

hard to tell it could be a bad/cheap detector not working or maybe you have some cops that like to mess with you. A cheap detector can be as bad or worse then no detector if it makes you think you will know when they are shooting and do not. I would assume they are using laser so it could also be that they just didn't hit the part of your car that the detector reads or even bad placement. I know mine works but it was not a cheapy(bel escort 9500ci)

Most of the law enforcement agencies are swapping to instant on K band or liadar. The liadar speed detector has two circular lenses one on top of the other. Both the instant on K band and the liadar have a trigger, and don't give you any advance warning. The officer selects the vehicle they want to check the speed of and hit the trigger.
