Good thing these aren't used by LE as they would be deadly in a city or residential area. Just imagine one day you are cruising along, your RD alerts to K band and then suddenly a cop walk out into the street and flags you down for speeding.

Love how the description says Rare when you can just whip over to pocket radar site and pick one up albeit for 200 more.

I was tempted to pick it up and swap it out for my normal Pocket Radar, but this isn't the one that police would use for enforcement. All of these PR's seem to have the same features and capabilities. It's just the case design, if it comes with a tuning fork, or if it's gone through additional certification.

This has been out for years with no departments that I’m aware of using it. It’s good enough to clock bikers and baseball’s.
Huh? If you can clock smaller objects, not sure you’d have an issue clocking larger objects ?

If anything.. it would be easier with a larger reflection wave from larger objects(like a car)

Only point in showing it was that there is a “police” version from LTI(makers of truspeed lidar)

You're right, you can definitely measure a vehicle's speed with it and it is a device targeted towards law enforcement.

In the USA, the LTI PulseMINI isn't approved by the NHTSA as a down-the-road speed measuring device for traffic enforcement, meaning it can't be used to produce evidence with which to write citations in the United States.

FYI the LTI PulseMINI is the only variant of these I know of that produces doppler audio feedback. None of the current Pocket Radar models do, even their Traffic survey model.

All these devices are manufactured by Attowave. I'm curious if anyone knows or is interested in researching... Does anyone know if LTI went directly to Attowave to commission this product, or if they went through Pocket Radar who commissioned Attowave?

Oh interesting, I didn’t know it had an audio doppler too. That’d be useful. I wonder if it’ll be approved by the NHTSA at some point.

Looks like I answered my own question. Apparently "Pulse Technology Partners LLC" is the commissioner of the product directly from Attowave of South Korea, and that LaserTech Incorporated signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Pulse Technology Partners LLC.

With doppler audio, I'd bet they're applying for certification. I don't see this being widely used in existing patrol vehicles at all, however I could see it being used by police on foot and or police on bicycles in downtown "metro" police departments / precincts.

Edit notes: direct citation added for press release

If it does stick at any departments and with certification down the line, would be cool to see how it stacks up and if it’s harder to sniff out than traditional K

Assume it would be comparable to a pocket radar unit

I just got an email alert from eBay that the seller dropped the price on this from 349 to 299 USD.

Just imagine cops on bicycles, or sitting on bench on the sidewalk. Suddenly your RD goes off and a cop walks out into the street and stops you. City streets or residential neighborhoods are where this thing could be quite deadly.
