I actually think the CR97 is a very good city detector even without lockouts. I personally don’t like auto or manual lockouts because I have had both my R3 and my Escort products lockout real police K-band in lockout areas. I prefer manual lockouts over auto if I had to choose. I run my CR97 in Highway mode 100% of the time normally with both filters at 1 and TFSR on and FDSr off. My city’s and the neighboring city’s PD to the east normally use constant on K and Ka Band, and my CR97 normally gives me adequate warning with minimal false alarms in the city. I am going to turn TFSR off for a while and see how that affects the performance and false alarm “balance”.In theory having the filters on are not suppose to affect range, but as we are seeing this is not the case. After seeing more testing and that of my own. The cr97 is a good flat ground detector, and of they can get some lockouts on there an ok city detector as long as the filters are on. It cant hang with the big dogs as votex put it, but at 250 I dont think that is what Mike's intent was/is. It's a step up from precious models. and hope to see it improve over time.
