    Instant Owned ON MY BIRTHDAY

    Anybody familiar with me posting knows I generally tell stories so: Tl;dr I got nailed for 74 in a 60 but he reduced it to 65 in a 60. First, I'll acknowledge that I failed hard in this scenario, countermeasures aren't worth shit if you don't pay attention with your EYES. My girlfriend and I...

    Answering "Should I Get a Radar Detector?"

    DISCLAIMER: I'll start with a background story, if you want to skip that my question will be at the bottom. So my girlfriend's family is in town, and I was driving my girlfriend and her sister to dinner in my CM car. R1 alerts me to state patrol somewhere in the next county, I mute it, and...

    Short SP K Band Save

    I don't know how many of these without dashcam footage I can get away with, but here goes: I just acquired a Radenso SP from a forum member, so I've been running that instead of my R1 for a change. FW 1.11, K wide, BSM filtering on, and TSF filtering on. On my usual commute today, I had just...

    Quick R1 Save

    Coming back from a job interview in Washington State, I had a bit of a close encounter with Montana Highway Patrol. I was going PSL +12 around an uphill curve passing a semi (maybe not the best idea?) on a section of interstate with mountains running up either side and a Jersey barrier in the...

    34.7 With Unconfirmed LEOs

    I've had this happen a few times now, so I decided to post about it. This happens on both my R1 and Radenso SP. On the same stretch of interstate for my daily commute, I'll pick up some 34.7 to varying strengths for this 5 mile stretch that disappears once I exit. It might start at half strength...

    TMG Test In Montana?

    I'm relatively new to the forum so if this is the wrong section please feel free to move it! I just installed a dual TMG setup on my TL and have not been able to test it. I'm in southwest Montana, and the closest tester in the directory is Vortex in Seattle (12 ish hour drive, weather dependant...

    2007 Acura TL TMG Dual

    I recently picked up an open box TMG Dual head system for a great deal (many many thanks @Jag42). Couldn't wait to install it, even though it's winter in Montana and my garage isn't exactly heated. Which leads me to my next point, no Montana doesn't use LIDAR but I'll be moving to Washington...

    Surprise LEOs While Testing R1

    So I was out the other night testing my relatively new R1 with some speed cameras in my neighborhood. It was running in highway mode with FW 1.37 and all defaults except All Threats on. Driving down a straight city street with light to no traffic, I started receiving my main camera (K 23.145) at...

    Turning Off R1 While Receiving Signal

    This is something I thought of today while parking at work. I work next to an airport, so I believe that's the source, but every morning when I park at work my R1 starts detecting a small amount of K 24.150. It continues until the detector is removed from power, either by switching off the car...

    Speeding With Old Equipment

    Be careful about it! I'm currently running an Escort Solo S2 (alongside Waze, and my R1 should be on my doorstep tomorrow!) and have been taking it relatively easy (except for one trip with a great out of state rabbit at PSL +15 for almost 80 miles). Around here, PSL +5 is generally acceptable...

    Hello, New Owner of Old RD

    Hello everybody! I was "gifted" a radar detector by a friend doing some cleaning, and (as someone who overanalyzes most things) most of my time spent on my phone the last two weeks has been on this forum. The issue(?) is that the RD I was gifted was an old Escort Solo S2. I downloaded Waze for...
