Yeah, detectors are like headlights, never a good idea to out run them.

I read sometime back where the db sensitivity was actually quite good on Ka. I just looked but haven't seen it tested and compared to other radar detectors. Is this because we don't want to see the Cobra crush some of our star radar detectors? I hope sometime the testers will add it to their testing when comparing multiple detectors because I'm curious.

i think @Vortex amd the texas guys have tested it and it did ok. It does really good on k band. I havent had a good KA encounter yet to see how well it does. The only two excounters Ive had were not good, but there were several things in play to explain it imo

I see alot of cobras aimed at the sky on people's windshields and just chuckle. Especially when it's in a $60k lexus

i bought it from a friend. she knows how i have a rd addiction and she just had that laying around. i hope to get a few more toys to play with over the next couple weeks. so far, it doesnt seem overly chatty on k band. just in the normal places, banks, hospitals, etc. i havent had any bsm yet, but the town i live in is only 42,000 so i normally dont get a lot anyway, even with redline in highway mode
I think she put a GPS tracker inside, she wants to know where you go and when! Careful!

I believe @SixPackABS was the leader in this revolution! He was using it as ghetto arrows and was getting some really impressive results/saves !!

I used the BT9200 as my rear RD with the Ghetto Arrows set up. Unfortunately this set up doesn't work well the the CX5 due to BSM falsing from the CX5.
