    Road rage: Car almost sideswipes truck

    This evening I captured some road rage with two cars nearly colliding behind me. The side cam was helpful in capturing the whole thing.

    Suggestion Push notifications

    So I’m trying to switch over from Tapatalk to the mobile theme in a browser. Is there a way to get app-like push notifications? This is for iOS. I know there’s email notifications, but I’m not a fan of those so I prefer push notifications.

    Radenso RC M Review

    I just finished up my Radenso RC M review if you'd like to check it out. https://www.vortexradar.com/2019/07/radenso-rc-m-radar-detector-review/ As usual, it's pretty long and in depth. It took a few days to write, but I'm glad to finally put together a comprehensive review of the detector.

    Comparing ALP Triple vs. Escort Quad

    So I'm working on a review article for the Radenso RC M right now and something came up that I wanted to get you guys' thoughts on. I'm comparing the RC M w/ the ALP laser defense kit which comes with ALP triples ($3,050) to the Escort Max Ci 360 with the ShifterMax quads ($3,500). When it...

    Redline EX BSM filtering

    So you guys running a Redline EX, how is the BSM filtering nowadays? I remember trying it out when the detector was first released and not being too impressed with the BSM filtering. However, I've heard a couple people since then say it's pretty good. It's all pretty subjective, but I'm curious...

    Gasto cameras on the highway in Cedar Rapids

    Looks like they’re bringing some new Gatso cameras (I’m not sure which model) to Cedar Rapids on I-380. https://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/government/cedar-rapids-police-gatso-automated-traffic-cameras-begin-issuing-tickets-monday-20190627 FTA:

    I just picked up 34.495 tonight

    Today I ran into my first out of tune off center frequency Stalker. (heh, thank you @LinuxD!) Anyway, I was out driving today (near Mukilteo for anyone local) and the Max Ci 360 went off to 34.495. Seeing that frequency really surprised me. It held steady, occasionally switching to 34.490, but...

    Suggestion Ignoring an individual thread

    Do you think it'd be possible to have an ignore option available for specific threads, similar to how we have for individual users? Edit: Nevermind, the feature already exists and I had no idea. :D

    Blackvue DR900S heatsink to help with overheating issues

    So I just found out about this heatsink that some people have been experimenting with. It slides right onto the DR900S and it looks like it helps alleviate the overheating issues. https://dashcamtalk.com/forum/threads/successfully-surviving-overheat-heat-sinks-helped-a-lot.39248/ They're...

    Why only certain cars with BSM's cause false alerts

    When I was at Radenso this week, @Jon at Radenso showed me some of the custom radar equipment he built so he could take a look at exactly what BSM's look like. It was super interesting to finally get a look at the BSM's themselves and compare them to actual police radar guns. Here's the short...

    What's it like running a RD company? Interview w/ Jon

    One of the videos that I shot at Radenso this week was an interview with @Jon at Radenso. He's been really open about what it's like running a RD company and things he's been learning going from being an enthusiast / consumer to being a manufacturer. I find it all really interesting because it's...

    TMG 2 heads vs. 3 heads

    Something I find odd is that sometimes a TMG will do better as a set of duals than as a set of triples. It seems like this only applies in certain scenarios or against particular guns. In other situations though, a set of triples would perform better. Does anyone have any idea why this would...

    Unboxing the Stinger fiber jammers

    The Stinger fiber jammers just showed up this morning for testing this weekend. Here's a couple quick photos of the system. It looks like this is designed to tie into the VIP. It doesn't have its own strip display. Interestingly, the fiber heads now have not 1 but 4 wires coming out the back.

    Envisioning the ideal app for logging RD test results

    So I'm sitting here working on collecting data for my RD test this past weekend and I'm thinking now about how I can speed up one of the most lengthy parts of the process: Reviewing every run, one by one, and logging the alert distance from the video into a spreadsheet. I'm thinking now of...
